Make The Most of Your Lei

The lei represents love and affection and therefore it should never be thrown away casually, or tossed in the trash.  They should be returned to the earth by hanging in a tree, burying, or burning.   Many types of lei can be left in a window to dry, allowing the natural fragrance to fill the room.   Some people use this technique in cars as well.   But, you can preserve your fresh flower lei by putting it in a plastic bag and placing it in the refrigerator.

If you have a lei made of scented flowers (as most are), there is a special way to enjoy it:

1. Take the lei out of the bag and place the lei on your pillow for about 20 minutes or so each night just before bedtime.

2. Just before retiring, return the lei to the refrigerator to preserve the sweet scent.

Repeat this practice every night and your lei will give you sweet dreams and memories of Hawaii for several evenings to come.

Guest Review From Trip Advisor

Visitor from Morgan Hill, California

Favorite vacation spot in the entire world!

We love Mauna Lani Point!  Excellent weather, location, accommodations, clean, gardens well-maintained, views and privacy.  Short walk to world class beaches, restaurants and golf.  We look forward to our annual week in Hawaii at this favorite spot.  All staff is friendly and helpful…only wish the rest of the world could be this fantastic.
