What better way to kickstart your trip to the lovely islands of Hawaii than by receiving a heartening flower lei greeting immediately at the airport! A Hawaiian tradition that dates way, way back to the time of the ancient Polynesians, the flower lei greeting is the perfect ceremony that will set the tone for your delightful Hawaiian vacation. It’s a beautiful ritual we all just see in the movies, and now, here is your chance to experience such a warm Hawaiian welcome promptly upon arrival!
Dating back to the late 1800’s, the ancient Polynesians greeted their visitors arriving in steamships with lovely, fragrant lei, the Hawaiian word for garland or wreath. Leis are usually made from Pikake blossoms, Plumeria blossoms, or Orchid blossoms, all of which look so gorgeous when hung as ornamental necklaces on delighted visitors. Apart from being used to warmly welcome island visitors, the leis were also made as gifts to give to each other, and even to their gods, as a sign of love, affection, and reverence. These were also presented during birthdays, graduations, weddings, religious ceremonies, and other important celebrations. Truly, the lei has become ingrained in the Hawaiian culture that up until now, these beautiful floral garlands are instantly associated with the lovely people of Hawaii and their equally lovely island traditions. Thus, getting a lei greeting at the airport is not only a captivating way to jumpstart your trip, but it also is a great way to commemorate the ancient Hawaiian tradition and preserve such a beautiful island custom.
Whether you are landing on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, or Hawaii Island, the classic flower lei greeting is available for booking for you and your loved ones. An authentic experience of Hawaiian hospitality, this short but sweet ceremony is something you surely would not want to pass up on upon arriving on the Island. When you book this activity, all your flight details and other necessary information will be coordinated with your assigned lei greeter, who will then be at the airport waiting for your safe arrival. Afterwards, you will then be welcomed by fresh, fragrant, and absolutely charming flower garlands. Make sure your cameras are ready to capture this beautiful moment! Depending on the package you get to book, you will be able to choose among several lei options, including standard leis, leis for men, and even candy leis children will absolutely adore! Of course, for the flower leis, the type of flower strung to create the leis will be subject to the availability and the season, depending on what time of the year you are to visit. Nonetheless, with the wide variety of bright and gorgeous flowers that grow on the Island, you will surely be adorned by truly beautiful pieces, whatever time of the year that is!
