HISTORY

The custom of lei giving was introduced by the early Polynesian explorers, who took the arduous journey from Tahiti, navigating by the stars in sailing canoes. With these early settlers, the lei tradition was born in Hawaii. These garlands were worn by the ancient Hawaiians to beautify themselves and to distinguish themselves from others. The lei was used in many religious practices to the ancient Hawaiian’s deities.

With the advent of tourism in the Hawaiian Islands, the custom of lei greeting became the symbol of Hawaii to millions of visitors worldwide. During the boat days of the early 1900s, lei vendors welcomed the malihini — or visitors — to the islands and welcome the kama’aina — locals — back home. It is said that departing visitors would throw their leis into the sea as their ship passed Diamond Head in hopes that like the lei, they too would return to the islands someday.

 

Since 1983, Aloha Reservations has easily brought visitors the nostalgia of old Hawaii. By continuing that age old tradition, visitors are welcomed with fresh flower leis of aloha to the Hawaiian Islands. Whether they are traveling alone or with a large group, our staff will be standing by to assist their first of many experiences they will encounter in the islands.

One of the few companies, Aloha Reservations provides lei greeting services to the four major islands of Hawaii: Honolulu on Oahu, Kahului on Maui, Lihue on Kauai, and Kona on the Big Island. You can celebrate a special occasion or convey a personalized thank you with a gift of a fresh fruit basket, a tropical floral arrangement, or a liquor gift of champagne or wine.

For those who are unable to experience the personality of Hawaii first hand, we provide dendrobium orchid leis that are able to be delivered to the US Mainland. No matter what the occasion, we have fresh flower leis year round.
