Experience a traditional welcome to the Garden Isle of Kauai with a flower lei greeting! Make your trip extra special with this Hawaiian-style reception.
Make your trip to Kauai extra special with a lei greeting upon arrival to the Lihue Airport. Your friendly island greeter, wearing a purple and white uniform, will meet you with a garland of flowers just outside the terminal area (on the way to baggage claim) while holding a welcome sign personalized with your name or group name. The greeters will also provide any assistance to baggage claim or directions to your connecting inter-island flight. Lei greetings make a delightful gift for honeymooners, first-time visitors, or anyone you'd like to arrange a special welcome for!
We loved it!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are greetings recommended for those with allergies or sensitivity to fragrances?
For those with allergies and sensitivity to fragrances, we recommend booking the Kukui nut, Shell, Ti Leaf, Cigar or Purple Orchid leis. Leis made of Tuberose have a very rich and concentrated fragrance.
How long will my lei last?
Leis made of purple orchid flowers will generally last a day and maybe even longer if well cared for. Spray your lei with water or cover with damp paper towels and store it in the fridge for later use. Ti leaf leis are considered good luck and can last much longer. With proper care, Kukui nut leis and shell leis can last forever.
How will I recognize my greeter?
Your greeter will be standing in front of the baggage claim area with your name on a sign. They will be wearing purple and white aloha attire.
What if my flight is delayed?
Your flight number and airline is being tracked so that your greeter will know your exact arrival time. In some instances, for excessive delays into after hours, greeters will try to deliver the lei to your hotel or arrange a departure greeting instead. However, any switches in flight numbers, please contact us right away.
What happens if I miss my lei greeting?
While there are no refunds, a greeter can drop off your leis to your hotel. Please provide your accommodation when you book.
We loved it!
I am sure the service was nice, but unfortunately, due to a scheduling error on someone elses part in my party, we did not arrive ...until the 8th. So we missed it. But we saw others recieving their lei's and it looked nice! more
My family and I were very pleased with our Lei Greeting.It was a fantastic way to start our vacation in Hawaii. However, because o...ur flight out of LAX was delayed, it almost didn't happen. I called your staff and they were glad to reschedule for the next day. Thank You So Much! We also ended our vaction by giving the Leis to the calm waters at Anini Beach. Hopefully, we'll return again someday. more
Our greeter was very friendly and helpful.
What a fantastic way to start our Hawaiian vacation! Our Lei Greeter gave us a very warm and friendly welcome to Kauai! It was w...ell worth it, and I appreciated the last minute booking. Mahalo! more
It was great to be greeted with a lei for my first time ever in Hawaii. The greeter was where she was supposed to be and was real...ly friendly and helpful. The leis were beautiful and smelled wonderful! Would recommend to all. Thank you all so very much for the warm welcome. more
The lei's on Hawaii were great but the ones on Kaua'i where old. Thank you so much for the attention!
I surprised my husband with a Lei and he loved it! It was nice that they had a sign with our names on it and to get Leid after su...ch a long trip 5 hours 40 minutes it gave us a spurt of energy and a welcome to Kauai. I loved it! more
It was worth every penny to see the look on my daughters face when she recieved her lei! A great way to start our first vacation ...on Kauai!!! more
Your staff person greeted us at Lihue with a (surprise) lei for my wife, even after our flights were delayed and we didn't la...nd until almost 11 pm. She was gracious, friendly, and personified aloha. more
I had myself and wife lei'd in Kauai when we got there, along with my sister in law when she arrived 4 days later. The greete...rs were great and lei's beautiful. My wife and sister-in-law actually keep theirs in the refrigerator, and brought them home at the end of the trip. The flowers amazingly still as beautiful as when we recieved them. more
We got here and this uber friendly lady greeted us with a HUGE smile and Lei'd us and then took our picture for us, gave us i...nfo on how to find our rental car. It was really nice. When we got to our room we had a great snack basket. I'm sure I'm supposed to take some home for the kids but it is all so yummy we might just eat all the local snacks, mainly the pineapple coconut balls!! Thank you so much for an amazing Kaua'i Welcome :) more

I was so thrilled with this service. We had missed our connection to Kaui due to Air Canada running late. I had arranged this as... a surprise for my travelling companions. I was shocked to see our Greeter Dale still at the airport 2.5 hours later when our flight got in. She was more than helpful, friendly and can be commended for staying till we arrived on the last flight of the day. A big big thank you to her she made a very long day end in such a pleasant way. Thank you to all. more
My husband and I went to Kauai for our honeymoon. The leis were beautiful and the greeter was so sweet. Totally worth the money.

This was our families first time in Hawaii and I have always thought it would be great to be met with a lei greeting. I googled it... on line and several companies came up but Hawaiin Activities stood out as one of the best, and we were not disappointed. It was easy to go on line and order and the options on what you wanted was great. When we arrived in Kauai, and walked through the doors the lady was standing there with a sign in her hand with our names, dressed in a lovely Hawaiin dress with all our leis lined up on her arms. No one knew I had arranged it and it was such a great way to end a long trip. The kids loved it as did my husband and I. Once we were given our official welcome, the lady was so great at helping us get our luggage and directing us to where we needed to go. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is both new to the island or coming back again. The leis lasted for days, very well made, funny heavier than I expected and smelled great. Can not thank Hawaiin Activiti more
We really enjoyed the Lei Greeting upon our arrival in Lihue. It really helps to settle you in after that long flight. As first ti...mers, our contact took pictures for us and pointed out where to get to the car rental shuttles. it's always nice to find a friendly face in the crowd when traveling. more
The Lei Greeting was so great! My lei was beautiful and the greeter even took a picture of my husband and I and walked with us out...side so we wouldn't get lost searching for our shuttle! more
Very nice, well recomended as they did a beautiful job and completly surprised my wife upon arrival.
Very nice and warm personal welcome & beautiful leis. Our enthousiastic greeter even took the time to take our picture. Mahalo... nui loa! more
Excellent welcome for a first time visit. Really lovely and welcoming lady and great experience. Thank you
Great service for my first time friend to Hawaii! We were in Kauai for 4 nights, and she stored the Lei in the refrigerator and wo...re it back home on the plane!!! It still looked good! Very happy customer here! Your wonderful staff also took a great picture with my camera of us both! Thank you! more
I wanted a surprise for my group upon arrival and could not be more pleased with the efforts provided by our greeter.
We saw Dale as soon as we exited the gate area of the airport. I think we were the first of her customers to reach her, and her ar...ms were full of beautiful leis. Her smile and the beautiful flowers welcomed us to Kauai! She helped us with directions and even took our photo with our beautiful leis! We will order with Veltra for our next trip to Hawaii! more
It was nice to be greeted with Leis. Good way to start off the Hawaiian experience.
Upon arriving in Lihue I was anxious about the greeter finding us, but as soon as we neared baggage claim their was a sign for us.... Our greeter was warm and friendly and explained how to get our rental car once we'd obtained our luggage. She also explained how to maintain the leis for a few days. I'd highly recommend it. more
I didn't know if we word receive flower lei's when we arrived to Kauai, I researched companies that would have the lei...039;s at the airport. I did it as a surprise to my husband! Our plane was delayed and the woman waited for us to arrive after midnight! She had the sign up when exiting to baggage claim and I saw her in enough time to have my husband walk thru first. The greeter was very friendly and helped us to get a taxi to get us to our hotel. The lei's were beautiful! They lasted almost 5 days and we refrigerated them at first. This is an essential Hawaiian to-do!!! more
greeter was very nice, like the lei's jus wish I knew how to preserve them, any suggestions would be great,

I surprised everyone by getting the leis for them. Greeters with the leis were there right as we got off the plane. What a great ...way to start a vacation!! more
Thank you for making my sister-in-laws’s 1st trip to Hawaii so special! She was thrilled & so excited to be greeted with her l...ei! more
It was so amazing to have the fresh orchid lei greeting when we got off the airplane for our honeymoon in Hawaii. They were beauti...ful and so fresh. It was a great way to kick off our Hawaiian adventure! more
They were there at the airport with a nice large sign and put the leis on 4 of us and he very nice!
Daughter and son-in-law loved it !Great way to start a vacation!
Our first flight was delayed, so we missed two connections. We had to re-schedule our lei greeting twice! The company was great - ...I appreciated that THEY called US to confirm ahead of time so that I was able to tell them about the delay. (And then they called again to confirm, so I was able to let them know about the second delay.) It would have been more difficult had I had to find their contact info and call them myself. We arrived very late in the evening, exhausted, and our greeter was there for us, the last customers of the night. The leis were as promised. Thank you very much! more
I ordered the lei greeting at the airport for my friend and myself, both first time visitors to Hawai'i. It was a very fun w...ay to begin our visit... I didn't realize that most of the upscale hotels offer leis free of charge to many / all guests... I could have saved the $$ and just received those leis, but honestly for a first timer, it was really cool to be greeted at the airport! more
The Lei greeting was great. My mum kept asking me in the UK about being greeted this way so she was so surprised when she was app...roached and presented with a beautiful Lei in Kauai! more
the girl was very friendly, my daughter's flight was late but she was willing to wait.
Sign with name was barely readable with multiple names on page. Nearly missed even though looking for it.

Nice way to begin a Hawaiian vacation.
we just orderd leis but theydid not have any smell to them but they were pretty
Was expecting a woman for some reason. Not some old leathery looking old man that smelled like ciggerettes, put it around your nec...k and leave..... The Lei it self was very pretty. but the greeting was nothing like you would expect. I think the whole greeting needs to change. that was really bad. sorry just telling it like it is. more
While it was so fun to be greeted by someone in Hawaiian dress with leis. It was way too expensive! The exact same leis were on ...sale 20 feet from the lady who greeted us for about 1/4 the price. more
