Luxury Resort in Hawaii Launches New Flower Experience for National Lei Day

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, a luxury residential-style resort on Oahu, recently announced a new flower drop at sunset offering just in time to celebrate National Lei Day on May 1. 

Debuting on National Lei Day, a longtime statewide tradition to celebrate the spirit of aloha, the nighttime flower drop was created to showcase the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and mark a new wave of experiential programming at the resort, which opened in July of last year.

On Mondays and Fridays at sunset, guests and locals alike are invited to gather around the stunning eighth floor infinity pool as thousands of fresh flower petals are delicately released from a higher floor.
