Along with the many experiential activities and classes that take place at Travaasa Destinations, Travaasa Hana offers guests an opportunity to sync your inner flower child, spurring your creativity and teaching you a small aspect of Hawai’i culture and traditions by attending one of our Lei making class. The tradition of presenting a lei is based around the symbol of affection to someone upon arriving or leaving. The beautiful flowers that cover the islands of Hawai’i are perfectly crafted to make one of a kind Leis. During your stay at Travaasa Hana you can take advantage of the variety of classes where you can learn the different techniques of Lei making such as:
Lei wili –done by twisting the colorful combination of pure Hawaiian flowers together.
Lei hili – intricately braiding the strands of Plumeria blooms.
Lei kui pololei – your delicate creation comes together by a simple string and needle stitch.
