The Story behind The Kahala Hawaiian Quilts

The beautiful Hawaiian quilts in the Kahala Spa treatment suites were created by Kahala employees Carol Arai, Jeanne Won, Wanda Lew, Laurie Niiyama, and Cindy Akai. There were five plants and flowers that were originally selected: Ginger and Pikake because of their fragrance and the fact that they are used in aromatherapy, Naupaka which is indigenous to the resort; Loulu because it is native to the islands, and OhiaLehua for its association with the romantic Legend of the Lovers. These quilts are placed in our spa suites.
