What’s happening this summer? A lot – and it’ll be hot!

What’s happening this summer? A lot – and it’ll be hot!

The Tahiti Village pool awaits your arrival.

Summer will be here before you know it. At Tahiti Village that means our activities schedule will heat up with an abundance of fun things to do in or near the water, including our popular luau starting May 5. We have already gotten a jump on the season with our popular Dive-In Movie, which we recently reintroduced.  It will run through summer (and perhaps into fall, weather permitting).

Summer is by far our busiest season, and we want you to enjoy your time with us safely and to the fullest. To that end you will see an increased staff presence effective April 1 at the entrances to our main pool and Lazy River. In the past we have experienced incursions of guests from other properties who wish to experience the unique features of our aquatic areas. We ask that you remember to always bring your room key with you to the pool and Lazy River.

The extra staff will also be better able to enforce our existing rule prohibiting the transportation of outside food, beverages and coolers into the pool area and Lazy River. We are bound by Nevada Administrative Code 444.288, which forbids food or drinks in public bathing or swimming facilities except in areas that have been approved by the health department. Recently the Clark County Health Department has stepped up its enforcement of this code, imposing stiff fines on properties found in violation.

The exception to this code is food and beverages prepared and served by the host facility, in our case Tahiti Joe’s, our licensed onsite restaurant and tiki bar. We are happy to announce an expansion of our food and beverage options from Tahiti Joe’s will be available for purchase and can be enjoyed poolside or at the Lazy River.

We are looking forward to a great and safe summer season at Tahiti Village and can’t wait to see you! We think our focus on the existing safety policies will ensure you have the best possible time during your stay.

    Thank you for the info and thank you for keeping owners informed.

  • Richard J. Chavez

    Does this ordnance include water and other snacks I.e., bagged chips, nuts and candy?

  • Wanda Hightower

    This looks great thanks for sending it to me. It’s good to keep up with what’s going on. What did you mean by Dive in Movie? We’ve been coming for a long time to Tahiti and I must have missed this?

  • Michelle Harris

    When is owners night this year 2012?

  • Thank you for asking, Michelle. Owners Night is every Thursday from 6-9 p.m. Stop by Tahiti Joe’s the next time you’re here and check out our new entertainer, singer-songwriter Jeremy James (http://www.jeremyjameslv.com). We look forward to seeing you.

  • Hello, Wanda. We introduced the Dive-In Movie on a limited trial basis last year, and it proved popular enough to warrant bringing back. The Dive-In Movie allows you to swim and watch a movie at the same time. We screen an aquatic-themed movie at the main pool once a week (6 p.m. Wednesdays) and serve free popcorn and lemonade. We change out the movie once a month. We will also show a family-themed movie poolside every Friday at 6 p.m. Thank you for writing.

  • Roger Finch

    Glad to hear you are keeping those who do not belong at Tahiti Village out of the pool and the Lazy River!
    I think it would be fun if you would show the movie “Jaws ” and see how many people remain in the pool. Ha!

  • miriam cortes

    What is owners night? would like to know because this year i am going vacation at the resort.

  • Gloria Taber

    I just read your article on the whats happening this summer. I am glad to see the activities for owners expanding however, I am concerned about the ability to bring my own water into the pool for me and my family. I have been an owner for over 5 years and while I know when I travel most places do not allow outside food and drinks, we got used to bringing down our own cooler with beverages for the kids and the adults. The pool is a major attraction for us. Please clarify on what our options are for water.

  • Tahiti Village

    Hi Gloria, thank you for writing. We have received a number of comments about our enforcement of Nevada Administrative Code 444.288, which prohibits outside food and beverages in public swimming facilities.

    We are concerned our previous level of enforcement did not comply with the code to the letter. The Clark County Health Department is now stepping up enforcement of the code and heavily fining or, in certain cases, shutting down offenders. This new fervor, with its potential to greatly impact our pool, understandably compels us to follow suit with other resorts and take a literal interpretation of the code. That means we can no longer allow the transportation of outside food and beverages into our pool area and Lazy River.

    It is not our intention to limit your access to water. In addition to our existing water fountains, we are also providing complimentary ice water and cups at water stations inside the pool area and Lazy River.

    While it would be nice to allow you to bring in your own alcoholic beverages, we risk jeopardizing our resort’s liquor license if we are found in violation of the code.

    We hope you will find the adjustments we are making reasonable in light of the current enforcement climate and eventually come to appreciate our endeavors to keep your resort compliant.

  • Tahiti Village

    Nice one, Roger. “I think we are going to need a bigger boat”. We think your fellow owners will appreciate your humor. We just checked and discovered the rating is PG. This may make for a great Dive-In Movie. Last one out of the pool gets a free tuna sandwich? Thanks for the feedback.

  • Tahiti Village

    Yes Richard, in order to comply with the ordinance we must restrict all outside food and beverages. With regards to water, in addition to our existing water fountains we are providing complimentary ice water and cups at water stations inside the pool area and Lazy River. Thank you for asking.

  • Tahiti Village

    Thank you Patrick and Martha for continuing to participate in the Blog. We appreciate your ownership. Stay tuned for a great summer.

  • Hello, Miriam. Owners Night is a weekly celebration of your timeshare ownership at Tahiti Village. There’s live music, drink and food specials, and an atmosphere of camaraderie. It is every Thursday from 6-9 p.m. at Tahiti Joe’s, our onsite restaurant and tiki bar. Please stop by and join in the fun on your next visit. Thank you for writing.

  • John Krallmamn

    Thank you for the update. We are looking forward to a Tahiti week this year.

  • Cynthia C

    What about baby bottles are they limited to rooms only or can they be at the pool?

  • Lloyd Simpson

    Are you going to monitor the kids in the hot tub that don’t have parents in the hot tub with them? It seems more like a kiddie pool at times.
    I was told that the area between the pool and the lazy river was going to be finished and there would be more grills and an adult only hot tub.
    Can you tell us what is happening with this area? Any other construction updates?
    Thank you, LS

  • Tahiti Village

    Hi Cynthia,

    Baby botttles will be allowed at the pool. Thank you for asking.

  • Tahiti Village

    Thank you John. We look forward to seeing you here.

  • Shelley

    Can you tell us what activities you will have for the 4th of July and during the summer? Will there be music, activities for kids etc?

  • Thank you for asking, Shelley. Ashlie Williams, our director of aquatics here at Tahiti Village, tells us there will indeed be music and multiple activities for the kids on the 4th of July. We hope you have a great visit.

  • Mary Kilpo

    So glad to see that Ashlie is still there! She is really great and “knows her stuff”. My husband and I appreciated all her help a few years ago.

  • Thank you for writing, Mary. We’re happy to report that Ashlie, our pool activities director, is still on staff. You’re right, she really does know her stuff and is instrumental in planning and implementing all our activities. Look for an article on Ashlie in our upcoming spring newsletter, out soon!
