I rarely give five stars for anything since so many places can make improvements. But I have come to like this business for their integrity and quality. The few arrangements I have received from this place has been just marvelous. No two

I had to order some flowers to bowl some clients over that was vacationing in Hawaii. I looked up in City Search and came across this florist with 20 grand reviews. So I started to investigate it. I was amazed at how helpful and creative

I could not believe how friendly and helpful any business could be than the folks at Rainforest. The man on the phone guided me through descriptions of flower designs that I could envision. He made some points clear regarding local customs

This is a classy florist that is located in Honolulu. The name itself reminds one of a peaceful setting, a forest or jungle. Their flowers are truly exquisite. Their service is professional and offer a wide selection of flowers all year long. Their staff is knowledgeable and one can admit that they can tell you too much information on any topic, but you leave their place with a wealth of knowledge and ideas.
I have used them several times and each recipient has always boasted and thanked me how wonderful an arrangement that they received. They also said that even after receiving several arrangements from different florists, that they really liked the Rainforest arrangement the most and that they liked the way they arranged the flowers and how well they lasted with more surprises every day of new buds opening to new flowers. They also have a wonderful website which changes every day with new photos and information. I just love their site! It is www.rainforesthawaii.com.

I have used another florist for the past five years and while the recipient liked her flowers, I didn't believe anyone else could make a difference.
A friend had referred me to Rainforest several times and I didn't really paid much attention until a co-worker said she had just had flowers from Rainforest sent to her and how it really lifted her spirits like no other flower arrangement could.
So I tried them. What I was surprised was their effort and professional mannerism in taking my order. The order taker was concise and I knew what I would be getting and what surprised me was their effort in sending me a photo of the arrangement so I could see what she was getting. Most florists use a standard purchased image that wasn't even made at the store. The flower image I received was the actual image (confirmed from a happy recipient and sent photos herself to me) of the arrangement.
So this made me post this comment for this wonderful florist.
Another nice thing I liked about this store is that the price you re quoted is the exact charge that was shown on my credit card statement. No hidden fees and charges. I used to send $75 arrangements and having shown $98.88 on my statements by other florists just didn't sit well with me. Rainforest quoted me $85 and that was what I paid for. Now that alone is worth going there for! to them

Just want to add to this shop's unique approach to floral design. And what a lovely disply of flowers that lasts and lasts!
I tried to call various shop mid-week prior to Mother's Day: Watanabe said no guarantee that it could get there before Mother's Day, Florist Grand laughed in my face, and Fujikami tried to sell me a gourmet gift basket costing somewhere near $200.
I finally called Rainforest because the name sounded interesting. After reading the many positive reviews, I said I'd try one last time. The guy on the phone was very helpful and offered several suggestions. I was thinking of a deep dark red and dark pink. He said he could make a dark red rose and pink peony. That sounded nice so I decided on a nice big one.
The morning on Saturday before Mother's Day, I got a pleasant call from my mom with excitement in her voice so I was thrilled. The roses were very dark ruby red and the peonies a soft bubble gum pink. I got a call on Tuesday that her peonies were fully opened and how she was enjoying her bouquet. Then another call just on Friday telling me tht her roses were as large as red delicious apples, and as dark. And just today she said that some of the roses have started to fade, but still large and fully opened. She said that her arrangement drank water like she had never seen before.
Please know that I have given her flowers many times but she has never gave me a play by play report on how it was doing. I will keep this number and call again later for her birthday and possibly their anniversary. This makes my job easier than trying to find a gift certificate she would use or a gift that stays wrapped forever.

I had ordered my mother some flowers and after reading so many positive reviews about this store, I had to give it a try. My first impression was that this was a designer store with a designer name. But after talking about the flower expertise with the owner of the store, I felt reassured that I was making a wise investment. The guy suggested a rather high priced arrangement but assured me that it would be full of splendid flowers an never carnations, mums or baby's breath. And what a pleasant surprise I got when he sent me a photo of the arrangement and my mother was overwhelmed with the colors and size of her arrangement that she also sent me a photo of it herself! My first impression was that the image I got from the florist was just a stock image but what a pleasant surprise that it was the actual arrangement sent to my mother. She called me the other day and said her arrangement was still lovely and she is was just amazed at how much water the flowers took up. She sent me the photo of the arrangement and it was twice the size I had originally seen and with many surprises blooming. She would tell me that she woke up every morning to find new and different flowers opening in her bouquet. The arrangement started out sort of pink and white and by the time I saw it a week later, it had colors of orange, yellows and multi colored corals and hot fuchsias.
She couldn't stop talking about it that I decided to send her another one just for the heck of it. When was the last time your mother called to praise you for something you did, and she already thanked you twice earlier when she received her flowers. My husband and I now love Rainforest and we will use it for everything we do in flowers in Hawaii. Now I wish they had a branch here cause our flowers here suck big time!

I needed to send flowers to my mother for Mother's Day and I know it was a last minute attempt but we just got back from our European vacation and after all the kids was settled, I decided to try to do the impossible. The first two tries through yelp turned out to be a waste of time. Then I tried Citysearch and came down to three top choices. Of the last of my three choices was Rainforest. A florist with an attractive name. I called and their lines were busy as I got a voice mail, so I said what the heck, I'll leave my name and number and give it a try. I continued to call others on the list but the phone just rang or I got a busy signal. I noticed that my cell had a voice mail and it was a call-back from Rainforest. A gentleman said he could help me out and if I'd call back or email since the phones were very busy that day.
Any way, to make a long story short, we decided to get mom a bouquet of flowers. She received the flowers some two hours after I placed the order and I won't boast that they work that fast, just in my case they were able to come under the wire and do the job right. The gentleman was also kind enough to email me the image of the arrangement and confirmed delivery made and accepted by with a name.
My mom was flabbergasted and full of excitement and joy! She said it was the best arrangement she had ever laid eyes on and said everything looked so grand.
I am writing this not because of these fine qualities but because she just called me today to say her flowers are just gorgeous and is still drinking up gallons of water as she meticulously fills the vase each day.
You better believe that I'll be returning to Rainforest for all my floral needs and her birthday is coming up so she will get another fantastic surprise.
I later read their website and discovered that they are an environmentally conscious establishment with considerations in everything they do. How did I ever luck out! Thanks Citysearch for a great find!

Looking for a florist to give my honey something special was not hard to find. The women at the office all unanimously said RAINFOREST. A client said she only uses RAINFOREST for special occasions. My best friend's daughter said if I had any smarts, I would just go to RAINFOREST.
Upon entering the store, I was greeted by a nice older Asian lady who said hello to me and was busy unpacking flowers in the rear of the store.
Another young lady came out and politely said if I needed anything, please don't hesitate to ask. I said I wanted to order some flowers.
She referred me to this bald gentleman who asked me first off is this for Valentine's Day and I said yes. Then went on to say that they could make a red rose but suggested perhaps something more unique. The unique caught my attention and everyone else in the room smiled. My next question was what her birth sign or birthday was. I said I don't want a birthday arrangement, but something romantic for Valentines. He explained that every sign has colors or flowers that represent romance, happiness, and even death to them and wanted to select a best flower and color to convey that thought.
Wow that already blew me away! I didn't realize that every sign has their own flower and color. I also asked about birth signs for other people (my mother, my sister and even the secretary) each time I was given specific colors and flowers and also shapes and styles for each. That just amazing! So I placed my order, and said I'll be back to get a birthday arrangement for my sister, flowers for my secretary and even something for mom for Mother's Day.
Now when someone asks me where to go, I tell them RAINFOREST!

Truly a unique floral experience. A one of a kind florist combining artistic sense, scientific knowledge, ethnobotany, numerology, astrology and so many more. Imagine everything from this shop with a green emphasis. Recycling, reusable, environmentally thoughtful, natural, ethical, and sound design are just adjectives that describe this florist well ahead of their time. Established in the 80's they thought of being green before the concept of being green was secular.

Flower selection based on numerology, astrological birth dates and birth signs. A new experience in floral gift giving.

My daughter just gave birth to our first grandchild and she received many flowers from so many of our friends and relatives. Out of all the arrangements she received just one stood out. This arrangement came from Rainforest. What a jewel it was. She had a baby boy and the colors were beautifully crafted in deep purples, dark blues and lime green with touches of rust. Even the presentation of it in a clear glass vase said "classy" when you saw it. This arrangement was sent from my daughter's friend from high school and it was the only arrangements next to her bedside as the rest were on teh floor. She had some that looked like sticks of bamboo, others were a sea of baby's breath and so many that were poor attempts of this Rainforest arrangement.
I later also discovered that my daughter received more arrangements at home and one of them, a Rainforest bouquet. It was so different than the first, and you know what, the original was till beautiful with everything fully bloomed out with staying power to last. The other arrangements were all thrown out by that time and she again had more bamboo stick arrangements that made me feel uneasy especially with the baby in the house and all those sharp sticks and daggers protruding out.
I later called to thank the florist for making my daughter so happy. The man on the phone was very happy to know that we loved the flowers and provided us with helpful information of the names of the flowers and where they came from. I was amazed at how much knowledge he shared with me. I will use them from now on and said they were the best flowers I have ever seen.

A friend referred me to this store and although I couldn't find anything on them, I liked the name and decided to give them a try.
My girlfriend travels to Honolulu often and works for long periods of time. Our long distance relationship can be grueling but there's one thing my girl loves is fresh flowers. She used to get them from Florist Grand but after she started getting some from Rainforest she just flipped out of her mind. She would even describe each one and take photos on her iPhone and email them to me telling me that she'd love to get one exactly like that for this day and then when she got another surprise from me, she'd say that this is now her favorite piece. I was amazed how rapidly their deliveries are done, almost VIP in speed, accuracy and design.
After having spent hundreds of dollars from FG, it was more affordable getting flowers from Rainforest. Their minimum is $85 and many looked better than ones I spent a $150 on from other places. The flowers are fresh, sent budded and open up for my girl. She always is surprised how they look differently each day as newer flowers open and become dominant in the piece. She said it was like having the movie Avatar in her office. The colors so brilliant and color combinations so stunning! All her co-workers say how special she must be for getting fresh flowers every few weeks.
I now have to say that this is the florist of choice. If you want something that will make her feel extra special among co-workers then this is the place!

UPDATE: I sent a total of three arrangements to my sweetheart and each time she said it was so different and made her day. She couldn't stop thanking me for doing this from so far away.
This made it all worth it. I recently saw a photo of the last one on her faceBook page and she also got many rave reviews from her friends. That sure got me a lot of mileage out of that order. Now, planning one for her for Valentine's Day!

I called to order flowers for a grand opening store for a friend who opened her shop in a busy area of town. I had read good reviews of this shop on the internet and decided to give it a try. The designer asked many questions before making a suggestion of what he was planning to do. His suggestions all sounded like he knew the store and even the designer, so I left it up to him. I got a call from my friend who received the flowers and she said that the flowers just made the store and she had received about a dozen arrangements from a dozen different florists and they all looked identical to one another, except the one from Rainforest was so outstanding that she used it in place of the flowers she had ordered herself for the store. Everyone who entered the store commented on the display flowers she had in the window and many had asked where it came from.
I also used Rainforest for a birthday for this same person and again he had asked a bunch of questions, most notably what birth sign she was and what day she was born. I thought that it was strange, but since he did such a great job on her grand opening, I would also leave it up to him. I got a phone call not even two hours later and she was again blown away with her flowers and said it was the best flowers she had ever received in her lifetime! Now this woman has lived in Italy, Greenwich Village, Paris and all over and for her to say it was the best, it really must have been something. I now tell everyone who needs flowers in Honolulu where to go and I can't wait to use Rainforest again for another event. I asked them if they would open up a branch in New York so we can enjoy the same talents and beauty here.

When you first venture into this quaint little shop, you're greeted with a friendly gesture and they sort of have an intuition of what you're seeking. They quickly express options and have a back floral storage where they keep all their limited and unusual materials for their arrangements. Their front refrigerator had an excellent selection of things like a wide assortment of large headed roses, many of which I have never seen before. They boasted five different kinds (I mean different forms not just colors) of Hydrangeas, fancy lilies, colored callas in a variety of colors, garden roses, peonies (I ended up getting these for Thanksgiving hostess gifts), orchids, gerbera daisies so big they looked artificial, and proteas, and so on. Just coming from Fujikami Florist, Honolulu Florist and Beretania Florist, I was amazed that Rainforest had flowers that neither of these carried, yet all three carried pretty much all the same flowers and looks. Rainforest even carried over twenty different kinds of anthuriums and as many as twenty different kinds of orchids. Their arrangements varied so greatly so as each piece could have come from entirely different florist shops. You just couldn't decide which one to get. The staff helped me decide which ones to get basing their selection on the recipient's birth date (of which I didn't have a clue), then basing it on apparel and designer choice. I was amazed how affluent they were in making a final selection based on dress and fashion sense. Of course the recipient just went ga ga when I brought the flowers to her and the guy was right on top of things when he said that she would just flip over them, and she did. What I was even more suprised is that when I made my selection from the flower box, the guy went in the back and refreshened the water and gave it new flower food and vitamins. They also said that they couldn't see having me give these cold water flowers to someone to have a wet spot when I'd drop them off. I was very amazed and did recall water from perspiration of the cold vase as it adjusted to warm in another floral delivery experience from another florist. Rainforest also boxed it and reminded me to add fresh water daily along with some hints in prolonging their flowers. They even gave me an instruction card (not the generic kind that Safeway has attached with their wraps) but thoroughly thought out solutions and suggestions and even a website describing more concise instructions with pictures showing step by step directions.
I could go on but I think you get the point. The other reviews are very true and with the one exception that they are open on Sundays by appointment or preorders.

When you first venture into this quaint little shop, you're greeted with a friendly gesture and they sort of have an intuition of what you're seeking. They quickly express options and have a back floral storage where they keep all their limited and unusual materials for their arrangements. Their front refrigerator had an excellent selection of things like a wide assortment of large headed roses, many of which I have never seen before. They boasted five different kinds (I mean different forms not just colors) of Hydrangeas, fancy lilies, colored callas in a variety of colors, garden roses, peonies (I ended up getting these for Thanksgiving hostess gifts), orchids, gerbera daisies so big they looked artificial, and proteas, and so on.

Pros: Helpful service, knowledgeable staff, friendly,professional

Cons: Due to their huge following they can sell out quickly

I frequently call Honolulu to order flowers for my mother when she visits there and stays with a friend. A friend here in California suggested that I give Rainforest a try. I really liked the name and just thought of them the next time I needed flowers.
I got the number for their store from the numerous good reviews I saw on this site. They're not easy to find so I had to keep their number in my cell phone for easy retrieval. My mother just loves flowers and all kinds of flowers. I called Rainforest to inquire about their arrangements and was further lead onto their site which had glorious photos of so many flowers that I couldn't imagine that they all came from the same place.
For the first arrangement, I gave my mom a mixed arrangement of orchids, lilies and fancy garden roses. This came to about a hundred dollars. I hesitated for a moment for the price then just did it because I had so much work ahead of me to do. I received a call from my mother expressing how beautiful the arrangement was and that they needed to keep filling the vase with water as they just drank and drank the water. When my mother returned home she said that her friend still had the arrangement and little had died since receiving it almost two weeks ago. The flowers all lasted and everyone opened up.
The next time I sent her flowers I wanted to spend a little more and see what I got for it. When my mother received them, she called immediately and wanted to know where I got the name of the florist as she was even thrilled than the first time I sent her flowers. Again this arrangement lasted well over two weeks and provided fond memories for my mom when she visited her friend in Honolulu.
I have used them for a friend in the hospital, new born baby, and several birthdays and each time I sent an arrangement from there, I got excited recipients and even one telling me that Rainforest is the best florist in all of Honolulu and how she was thrilled that I thought so highly of her for sending a Rainforest bouquet.
I imagine their arrangements must be like their website showing a grand variety of floral selections.
Now I guess I need to visit Honolulu to get one sent to me so I can get thrilled as so many people I sent flowers to have said it to me.
I'm glad I finally found a florist that knows how to design and manage flowers. Truly exceptional work! If you're reading this, please know that I am 101% satisfied and will continue to purchase my flowers from them.

I called last minute for a special wrist corsage for my daughter's last minute notice event. She needed to have a purple and green flower color and I knew Rainforest would be able to do it.
I discussed the possibilities with the designer, Michael over the phone and after he suggested over ten options, I just left it up to him. When I picked up the wrist corsage, I was amazed how beautiful he made it.
Just as I was about to view his other arrangements, I soon was choking to death. Michael gave me a bottled water and after drinking it, I was back to normal. He refused to accept money for the water as I offered to pay for it.
He saved my daughter's life as well as mine. Now that is a super florist!

I am a regular flower buyer and always try and keep fresh flowers in my home. I have purchased flowers from KCC open market with big disappointments. Anthuriums only lasting a few days. Rainforest anthuriums arrive fresh weekly and I have kept them lasting for three weeks! I have purchased gerbera daisies, roses and assorted flowers from Whole Foods only to be disappointed by having them last less than two days. Until I shopped at Rainforest, I didn't realize these flowers could last so long. I used to believe that flowers lasted for just two days or less. Now I buy everything from Rainforest and have been amazed at how long they can last. Gerbera daisies lasting well over two weekends, roses lasting as long as fifteen days, mixed flower bouquets lasting close to three weeks. I have read that their arrangements are to die for. I don't know of anywhere else where you can select from so many varieties of flowers than at Rainforest. They seem to carry all of the colors that are unusual and different. I have selected from over thirty different kinds of anthuriums, so many colors of roses I do t know what to get, and gerbera daisy colors I didn't know existed. They have a large selection of orchids and so many novelty flowers. If you're seeking to get a specific flower or color, I suggest you shop here first.
I once needed a mixed bouquet of flowers to take to a friend's wedding shower and her colors were lime green. I became the hit of the party when I walked in with my mixed bouquet of so many kinds of green flowers. The bride didn't even realize this place existed until I passed my card to her. She said the only green flower she could get was green spider mums, but I had brought green spiders, green roses, green orchids, green lilies, green berries, plus an assortment of variegated leaves and green pods.
Try them and you'll never regret it. Just because we live in Hawaii, doesn't mean we have to make sacrifices for pretty flowers!

I'm the kind of shopper that don't know what I want. Walking into Rainforest was a sensory experience. It smelled lovely and visually stunning. Interesting photography on the walls, well designed and functional florist. Staff is friendly and easy going, with a goal to please.
Talk about a "green" store, Rainforest is the greenest of them all. Recycled boxes converted into art forms for you to carry out your arrangements safely and without spillage in your car. I've never seen anyone else wrap a lei and roses in ti leaf like they do. When I gave my flowers to my recipient, she was thrilled after receiving many numerous cello wrapped roses and sported lots of leis. In the end, she carried my ti leaf wrapped roses leaving all the cello wrapped ones on the table. I was thrilled.
They also start early and I have used them when needing that special small arrangement for my secretary at 7 in the morning. They will also custom create a look based on the recipient's birth sign/date. I was amazed how on it they were when they suggested what they would like based on a birth sign. Try them for a visually breath taking experience.

I would like to add that I recently received flowers from Rainforest that were the most beautifully arranged and with each day passing, newer buds opened up revealing interesting colors and shapes. After two weeks of vase life I finally started to remove some of the faded flowers and kept refilling the vase with water as the long lasting flowers finally gave out. All in all, I kept the arrangement looking good for about seven weeks. I still have one lingering rose still in a bud vase still doing well. How's that for money well spent!

Pros: Always something different

Cons: Closed on Sundays

I needed a special flower arrangement for my mom for Mother's Day. The usual florist which I have been doing business with for the past ten years said they no longer do Mother's Day any more. Being stunned from their stand not to do Mother's Day, I frantically called several florists until I came across the nice reviews I read here. All of them said they could not help me, but Rainforest said they could but would charge more for having extra delivery people on that day. I said my mother was worth it and I decided to go with them spending about $50 more than I would normally spend.
To my surprise, my mom called me early Sunday to say she received the flowers and she loved the composition of the piece. She just sounded really thrilled. I was so glad that she was happy.
About four days later, I got an email from her with a photo of the arrangement she had gotten and it showed every flower in full bloom. I was amazed how large the arrangement was since her arrangements in the past hadn't looked so full as this one.
She just couldn't stop thanking me for such a beautiful arrangement and went onto to say that all of her friends were jealous that her arrangement was prettier than what they received. She also told me that she was going to take more photos and make Christmas cards out of them. Boy that $50 difference in price was sure worth it. I later called Rainforest to thank them and asked what they used and discovered that they used imported tulips, fancy garden roses, peonies, lilacs, bearded iris, and a bunch of other things I can't recall, but emphasized that no carnations, baby's breath and carnations were used in the making of this bouquet.
Even under holiday stresses, this florist came through in shining colors!

Pros: Answered phone, returned my phone message, prompt, courteous

Cons: None that I can think of

Finding a good flower shop these days is difficult. With so many shops being succumb to mass flower sales in super markets, open markets and trucking vendors, it is ice to know that when you visit Rainforest you can always get something different that doesn't make you look like you dropped into Safeway and get a generic bunch of flowers. Their packaging is unique and always draws attention when I'm walking with them, they have a good set up with excellent parking and easy location.
Not your florist if you are just wanting carnations and baby's breath, but chocolate roses, calla lilies, fragrant gardenias, exotic tropicals and much more. Plus they have ready to go arrangements from $25 and up. They will pack them for safe car travel and provide free enclosure cards and envelopes. Check out their website so full of useful information and photos: rainforesthawaii.
Can't say enough good things about them. They speak English as their first language, no translation mix-ups/issues like some other florists, they can do so much. They should advertise or mention that they do stunning weddings, and parties are their specialty. Each visit I learn new things that I pass along to my friends and clients when I give them their flowers.

Pros: Environmentally conscious florist with good communication

Cons: none

.

After speaking with several florists on the phone, I had experienced poor communication skills, kept me holding for more than five minutes, or couldn't understand basic English until I called Rainforest. I was surprised at how familiar they were with their stock on hand. It wasn't just a dozen varieties but dozens of varieties in each category, some much more. They had flowers I have never heard about. I was so bedazzled that I just left it up to them.
When the recipient called to thank me, she told me that she had received over fifteen arrangements and she only kept two of them in her office. The two arrangements both came from Rainforest and were so different from one another, unlike another large florist that sent two identical arrangements to her from two different senders. She had already told her receptionist that they will be using Rainforest exclusively from now on. She also called the florist to thank them and was further educated about their business and how they are really into saving the planet, beginning with Hawaii and then onwards. Thus, having been called Rainforest, not only because it sounds exotic, but because they are environmentally aware and makes their customers aware as well.
It is such a nice gesture to receive a thank you card with the photo of the arrangement I sent her with high acclaim handwritten in it. Most people can't get her autograph, I got a handwritten note with her photo with the flowers taken with her.
As you can tell, I was blown away and have used them many times since and every person receiving flowers had said it was their most breathtaking bouquet that they have ever seen.

This is the first time I have written a review. I have ordered flowers delivered many times from different vendors, and the people at Rainforest do an exceptionally good job. The flower arrangements are creatively designed, promptly delivered, and last a long time. Their customer service is excellent - they send a picture of the arrangement in email and fax the receipt. They are really friendly and helpful. Love them!
