Grilling at Tahiti Village just got a whole lot easier with the opening of our new barbecue area. Located on a plot of vacant land behind the Lazy River, the new 10,000-square foot barbecue area has 13 stainless steel grills, increasing the number on property from five to 18. Their addition will greatly accelerate your steak to grill time during peak barbecuing hours. The pavilion will also include numerous new tables (umbrellas to come!) and chairs where you can sit and enjoy your meal.
The new barbecue area is part of a larger expansion that includes an elevated stage for planned musical events and a proposed new adult-only hot tub. The new spa will have seating for 17, about double that of the original hot tub off the main pool. It will hold approximately 4,500 gallons and have two sloped entrances, with tiki torches on either side of a rock waterfall that flows directly into the spa. The hot tub is currently under construction and expected to open within the next 60 days. “We think this will greatly enhance the vacation experience of our owners,” said Mike Rounds, Tahiti Village general manager.
Great news about the new BBQ area!
We’re glad you approve, Ronn. Once the spa is up and running we think the new barbecue pavilion will rival the Lazy River and pool area as a prime gathering spot to meet, eat and relax. Thank you for writing.
We will definitely be taking advantage of the grilling pavilion! Only disappointed the adult spa won’t be ready for our anniversary trip mid August. But I know our 3 little ones will have a blast at the pool! We had a great time at the Tahiti 2 years ago & are really looking forward to the Tahiti Village trip!
Thank you for writing, Suzi. We too wish the adult spa would be ready for your visit. If everything goes accordingly, we are expecting a Labor Day opening. As you know, the new barbecue pavilion adds 13 new grills to the property, increasing the number resort-wide to 18. We think you’ll be impressed. Our sand-entry beach pool and Lazy River are still here for you and your family to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you in August. Thanks again for your interest.
As a long time Tahiti owner the new BBQ area is a great addition. I usually BBQ 3-4 days while there, but can never sit and enjoy as the previous sitting area was small. Wondering though, in addition to this new area, what happened with the volleyball section plans and the minature golf area?
Thank you for writing, Damian. We think you’ll enjoy our new 10,000-square foot barbecue area. Thirteen new grills increases the number to 18 resort-wide and greatly decreases burger to mouth wait time. Plans for the volleyball section and miniature golf area took a backseat to the new barbecue area and adult-only spa (coming soon), which owners have been requesting now for some time. We will keep you updated on plans for new attractions as they become available. Once again, thank you for writing. We appreciate your ownership.
I just wanted to say to everyone at Tahiti Village, Great Job for adding the new grilling area and the new adult hot tub. I think that Tahiti Village is doing everything to make owners very happy. We love it there and cannot wait to come back for another vacation.
I also cannot wait to see yall add the minature golf section, a great idea for the whole familt to use.
One sugestion is to extend the hours of the shuttle to town.
Again GREAT JOB Tahiti,
Rodney and Kathy
Thank you for writing, Rodney and Kathy. The new barbecue area is drawing lots of compliments and plenty of chefs putting the 13 new grills to good use. We hope you will do likewise on your next visit, by which time we should have the adult-only spa up and running. We appreciate your ownership and look forward to seeing you both again soon.
We are heading back to Tahiti Village late October and looking forward to grilling in the new area. Just what was needed for those of us without an oven/stove in our unit. On our owner’s wish list is at least one tennis court, but miniature golf would be fun too.
Keep up the good work!
Hello, Joy and Bill. We think you will really like the new barbecue area, now called the Island Courtyard. We hosted our first Owners Night there yesterday and think it could become an occasional alternative to Tahiti Joe’s when weather permits. Last night was ideal. The decision to move forward with a new barbecue area and adult spa was dictated by owner requests and took precedent over other projects. We are always looking for additional activities and appreciate your suggestion. Thank you for writing. We look forward to seeing you in October, a great time to come to Las Vegas.
Very excited about the courtyard, and like the Fruen’s, still hoping a lighted tennis court is in our future…
Thank you for writing, Catherine. The new Island Courtyard is receiving excellent reviews, with 13 new barbecue grills, an adult spa and a performance stage within its 10,000 square feet. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to stop by on your next visit. As far as tennis courts go, we are always looking for ways to improve your vacation ownership experience. Budgetary considerations often dictate what we’re able to do in a given year, but we will definitely discuss the tennis topic.
