In a far far off land, a funny mea himeni and a handsome haku mele met backstage. They were soon making beautiful mele together and enjoyed many a night in their hut at the famous Coco Palms Hotel. Koka and Ihilani decided to move their family to Kauai in 1992. They arrived just after Hurrican Iniki had stripped the island of all its flowers and greenery, but not of its haú oli ohana. Everyone shared whatever they had until the island became whole. Soon, Koka and Ihilani were part of this Ohana, but one thing was missing - A really great Tiki Bar.
It took Ihilani 16 years to bring her dream to fruition. Tiki Iniki, a place for coming together to sip fresh squeezed drinks and sample island cuisine sourced by local farmers. So if you don't want to work and just wanna 'bang on the drum all day' wiki wiki over. Tiki Iniki is the place to eat, drink and be le'a le'a.
