    I think it's lost all of its uniqueness... Looks a bit like the layout for Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom lodge. :sigh:

    Thanks Tink, I kind of remember bits of it but as we saw it in the dark and it was quite a dark resort I didn't see as much as I'd like to have done. Remember all the plants though and feeling a bit claustrophobic. I like the new one but it's lost a lot of character.

    I'm remembering years, and years ago when there were colorful birds (macaws?) in the lobby, too. It was really quite lovely then, with foliage, and flowers, waterfalls and birds. Very unique and very much what one would expect in Hawaii...

    I love change, I really do. I'm one of the few people who crave change, actually. However, change has to be accompanied by some level of improvement or progress, or even logic. Not seeing it here. It's cleaner, for sure. But if I wanted clean and tidy, I'd stay home. ;)

    I don't know, but maybe some sort of odd decoration? Maybe meant to evoke thoughts of volcanoes? :confused:

    Have to be honest and say that at the moment my home is anything but clean and tidy. Christmas presents wrapped and lying round the house, bike that my granddaughter has bought her boyfriend is sitting in my dining room just half made up, Nigella's Christmas cookery book on the dining room table together with today's half finished crossword puzzle and a finished cup of tea. I've got to get it finished by Christmas day and I haven't started to ice the Christmas cake yet. So much to do and so little time and now I'm sitting here upstairs glad to get away from the mess and just enjoying reading posts

    Although creative, I've decided I don't care for the plant arrangement in the very first photo on this thread. Looks a little too spidery. :unsure:

    Now that I see that on my PC that does indeed look like volcanic rock. I'll have to reserve comments until after I see it in person, but it does seem to lack the ambiance that it once had.
