Gestures of Aloha
What could be more romantic than a trip to Hawaii? After all, what about breathtaking sunsets, unspoiled natural beauty, and the sweet smell of tropical plumeria flowers doesn’t make your heart melt. While the Hawaiian Islands offers the obvious recipe for romantic bliss, show your significant other you truly care with these subtle, yet romantic Hawaii-inspired gestures of aloha (love).
Treat yourselves to a couple’s lomi lomi massage, a traditional healing art of the Hawaiians, and get your bodies back into its natural rhythm.
Learn to dance the hula to a classic Hawaiian love song like “Ke Kali Nei Au” (“Waiting For Thee”) and exchange fragrant lei (garland/wreath of flowers) as a symbol of affection.
Pick a beautiful pua (flower) and place it in your left ear as a symbol of your partnership.
Present your leading lady with a keepsake of your romantic trip by surprising her with Hawaiian jewelry to make her feel like royalty.
