The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach Celebrate National Lei Day, May 1
April 27, 2017
Debuting on National Lei Day (May 1, 2017), a longtime statewide tradition to celebrate the spirit of aloha, the nightly 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 2016.
On Mondays and Fridays at sunset, guests and locals alike are invited to gather around the stunning eighth floor infinity pool – the highest infinity pool in Waikiki – as thousands of fresh flower petals are delicately released from a higher floor. From crisp dendrobium orchids to fragrant plumerias, with the gentle Hawaii breeze guiding the bright petals to the ground, along with unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean in the background, this special ritual offers the perfect moment to capture a photo or video that will last a lifetime, and create treasured memories for years to come. The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach is the only resort in Hawaii to offer a flower drop for guests and plans to offer the experience nightly beginning summer.
To cap off the experience, guests can sip on handcrafted Hibiscus Margaritas – the resort’s signature cocktail –made with Herradura Silver Tequila, wild hibiscus, Cointreau, and lime, while taking in the iconic Hawaiian sunset. The new signature cocktail is available at
The sunset flower drop will be one of many distinctive experiences to come at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, all of which will embrace the island spirit and natural beauty of Hawaii.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach opened in July 2016, bringing elegance and luxury to Kuhio Avenue and Luxury Row. As Oahu’s first Ritz-Carlton Residences and one of Waikiki’s newest luxury resorts, the 38-story tower features 307 stylishly-appointed studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom
, all of which are ocean facing and provide guests with pristine ocean views from every unit. The property’s distinctive experiences and amenities draw inspiration from the natural elements of Hawaii, such as
The Ritz-Carlton Spa
– a 3,400-square-foot tranquil oasis offering customized treatments inspired by traditional Hawaiian healing methods and Hawaii’s natural surroundings. The spa menu and signature treatments were developed by Hawaiian Rainforest Naturals Co-Founder and Hawaiian cultural practitioner Melia Goodenow of Hawaii Island.
Additional signature amenities include Waikiki’s highest infinity pool overlooking the lush treetops of Fort Derussy, and state-of-the-art
designed by celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak. The property is also home to world-class dining experiences including
– the exclusive, 10-seat omakase-style sushi restaurant from Tokyo’s most influential sushi chef, Keiji Nakazawa;
