What you'll do

We will meet in Kihei to get acquainted. Then we will go gather flowers depending on the weather that day & where the flowers are blooming in season. I will bring all the supplies we need: long lei needles, string, and Hawaiian music to enjoy while we sit by the ocean and string our flower lei!

Other things to note
We will be walking in nature looking for flowers suitable for lei making. If you like nature photography, this experience will provide plenty of beautiful photo ops!

Aloha, I'm Sarah! I grew up on Maui making leis for every occasion that you can imagine: birthdays, May Day (called "Lei Day" here), graduation, to give to a friend, for friends and family arriving at the airport, and just because leis are fun to make and nice to wear!

Where you'll be

Everyone loves a fresh flower lei! To make a lei you must know where to go and have permission to pick flowers. That's why I invite you to come with me! We will meet at the centrally located Mana Kai Resort / Keawakapu Beach and get acquainted. Then we will go to one or two flower picking locations to gather flowers. The location will depend on weather and flower availability. Next we will go to a shady spot by the ocean to make our leis

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 7 reviews.

The lei smelled very nice. I was bummed that airlines no longer provide leis, so I decide to go on this experience to make my own.

We got lei’d in Maui! ;) LOL! This experience is totally worth it- we are obsessed with our lei’s we made! It was a great adventure finding the different flowers that were in season (mostly plumerias, gardenias, and bougainvilleas) around the area. She is very knowledgeable about the flowers and had plenty of stories to share! We then went to the beach and she showed us how to string them. You can make a head lei or regular lei, depending if you found enough flowers but we had PLENTY. Would 10000% recommend.

Finding the flowers and hearing Sarah talk about Kihei through the years was great. Then making the leis was fun and I plan to make them at home.
