The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed everyone’s lives. That doesn’t stop us from doing everything we can to give our guests and owners the best experience and vacation possible. At Tahiti Village Resort, we care deeply about the well-being and safety of our owners and guests and wanted to provide you with an update on the steps we are taking at the resort to ensure your safety!
Just recently, the Governor stated that in order for Nevada to stay safe and remain open during COVID-19 it is mandated to wear face coverings in all public areas. This Declaration of Emergency Directive was announced on June 26, 2020.
With that, all guests must wear face coverings while indoors, while walking around the property outdoors and while at the pool and lazy river areas. This is for not only your safety but for everyone at the resort. If you have further questions about the new directive, please click here.
Nevada entered Phase Two of reopening on May 29, since then there have been many positive changes in regards to what we can have open on property. After careful consideration of the Phase 2 plan and guidance from the CDC and state directives, we were able to make these further changes–
Our pool, lazy river and hot tubs will be open but operating at 50% capacity. Pool admittance will be on a “first come, first served” basis. Wristbands are required to access pool, hot tubs and lazy river.
Our gym will officially be opening for use.
Wristbands are required to access our pool, lazy river and hot tubs for all registered guests except for children less than 5 years of age. Visit Concierge for these!
BBQ area will be open for use.
We are accepting reservations at the resort for guests and owners to come and stay with us. We have taken these additional precautions –
The Front Desk and Concierge areas will be fitted with plexiglass acrylic screens. Social distance markers are on the floor for everyone’s reference.
Keys, lobby access doors, stairway banisters, elevator buttons, desks, door handles, and all other high contact areas will be disinfected regularly by our staff.
In your room, we will be placing “Cleaned and Sanitized” stickers in all high contact areas to let you know we got it.
Room assignments will be done so in a way that will allow for better social distancing.
Enhanced cleaning of the gym.
All employees will be participating in ongoing training to ensure health and safety measures are upheld.
While you are at the resort we recommend you only ride the elevator with people in your party. Please continue to practice social distancing between each other and in all public areas on our property. Such as our walkways, hallways, lobby areas, etc.
We intend to operate as set forth for as long as possible; however, please realize that these are dynamic and rapidly-evolving circumstances that require day-to-day decision making with COVID-19.
If you need to adjust retail reservations, please contact our Reservation Team at 1-855-386-4658. Adjusting a retail reservation made through an online travel agency (OTA) or another third party, please contact them directly.
For those who are taking advantage in our Complimentary Stay offer and need to change your dates or cancel, please contact us at 1-877-751-8444.
Rest assured that we will contact you in the event that we are required to further change course due to updated health and safety guidance. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as our team navigates what is truly new ground. This is a fluid situation with local, state, and federal jurisdictions issuing guidance and/or restrictions continuously.
We understand that your vacations with us are not what any of us are used to and we apologize for that. The new rules and restrictions that have been placed upon us from State of Nevada’s Directive 024 are one’s we need to follow so we can get back to the Vegas everyone loves!

Tahiti Village Resort wants to thank you for your continued support and love as we do everything we can to provide you with the best vacation possible!
This pandemic has been taxing and stressful on everyone, that is no secret. In this time of unknowing, it is nice to shed light on the good happening, as well; especially right here in the Las Vegas community. A beam of light is the creation of Chefs4Vegas.
During the state shut down, there was a surplus of food and products that many chefs and restaurants were sitting on. As a result, many were reaching out to venders and colleagues for advice on where to try and appropriately dispose of the items. Tahiti Village’s Executive Chef, Jason Diaz and other local chefs gathered together on April 18th in a dirt lot off of Tenaya and Warm Springs to find a solution.
After brainstorming, talking, and creating a blue print it was there in that dirt lot that Chefs4Vegas was created. “It even rained on us that day but that didn’t stop us from doing what we felt was right,” said Daiz.
That following week they set up a food bank with the help of other vendors and local chefs, in that day they were able to feed over 300 families in need. “Whenever you can give to your community and provide for them, it is heartwarming,” said Diaz.
This was supposed to be a one-time deal, however the demand grew, the families in need increased and Chefs4Vegas continued helping the community for 10 consecutive weeks. To date, the chefs as a group along with other community partners have provided sustenance to over 10,000 local Las Vegas families.
On June 16th, Chefs4Vegas was awarded a Proclamation from the City of Las Vegas for helping the local community in time of crisis. Chefs4Vegas has now been granted a 501C3, which acknowledges them as a full-fledged nonprofit organization.
“I grew up with not a whole bunch and I relied on food pantries. I know how much that means to a community and I know how much that means to a lot of people. If I could give back and do that, try to do right for them, that’s all this is really about,” said Diaz.
June 24th was another big day for Chefs4Vegas as they traveled to McGill, Nevada to set up a food pantry for that community. “This pandemic really hit hard in that area and there were lots of reports of people not having a lot to survive on. It is very sad times we are in,” said Diaz.
In the midst of all of the sadness, it is heartwarming to know that there are good people in our community that care and are willing to go the extra mile to make sure that everyone has what is necessary during these times.
“The thank you’s and the social media posts from some of these people that really, really needed it is amazing. There is no better feeling then to give back to your community,” said Diaz.
Be sure to give Chef Jason a social distanced high-five or say hello the next time you see him. He and many others have done so much for Las Vegas in such a short amount of time. We are extremely proud of our Chef and all that he has done and continues to do every day.
We would also like to say thank you to the other chefs and some of the vendors involved in Chefs4Vegas!

The Arturo’s Village Pizza story begins with a boy from Brooklyn; a boy who never forgot the sights, the sounds and especially the pizza. There was something about the elusiveness in the flavor he could never shake, but it seemed to exist to greater or lesser degrees in every family-owned pizza joint running the length of Coney Island Ave.
He was a regular at their storefronts for years, but the pie-tossing proprietors never knew his name and never once bothered to ask if it was Tony or Joey or Frankie or, more to the fact, Artie. The boy’s name is Artie Spector.
Artie always knew what he wanted and that was two slices, always for the road. One of the built-in benefits of Brooklyn pizza is its portability and pliability. Artie had perfected the famous double stack at a young age. An ingenious 2-for-1 intake method in which consumers place one slice on top of the other, allowing them to eat twice as much pizza in half the time.
These are the memories Artie took with him when he eventually left his hometown to pave his way in the world, a decision that took him far from his city roots. He started out and found his calling in Hawaii, by converting condominium units into deluxe timeshare resorts. It was the vacation ownership industry that led him to Las Vegas.
When Artie moved to Las Vegas he built what we know today as Tahiti Village Resort and Spa. Over the years he furnished it with all kinds of desirable amenities, including a restaurant, spa, and lazy river. Although, his dream since boyhood was to have his very own Brooklyn-style pizzeria and that is where Arturo’s Village Pizza was created.
Arturo’s Village Pizza has been entrusted to our very own Executive Chef, Jason Diaz, “One of my very first promotions was taking over a pizzeria and pizza has always held a special place in my heart. I’ve been fortune enough to have good people teach me how to make good pizza.”
The dough is the foundation of any pizza and Chef Jason has given everyone at Arturo’s Village Pizza nothing but the best. “The dough recipe is mine. I reached out to a vendor to help in making the dough and they are making it and shipping it to me, fresh from Los Angeles,” said Diaz.
Everyone has heard of Brooklyn style pizza, but not a lot have tasted the real deal. Here at Arturo’s Village Pizza we have specifically picked certain pizzas that are true to Artie’s past.
“We wanted to stay as authentic as possible to what Brooklyn style pizza is. If you take a look at what they do, a lot of what we do is mimicked. I just wanted to try and carry on that tradition and make it so it is New York style,” said Diaz.
All of the pizzas on the menu mean something to Chef Jason and they all have something he likes. He can’t choose just one favorite because he loves them all just the same! However, he did mention that the fan favorite has been the Brooklyn Meat Pie; with Italian sausage, Pepperoni, Bacon and Ham, it is the ultimate pie for a meat lover.
“I know it means something to the owner and all we want is for Arturo’s to succeed. I know he wouldn’t have trusted me with what he did if he didn’t think we could pull it off,” said Diaz. We want everyone to know what Arturo’s is and stands for. No one at Tahiti Village should leave without trying real, Brooklyn style pizza.
“I’m looking forward to what we might be able to do further on. The feedback and reviews from everyone coming in has been amazing… it is a cool ride to be on right now,” said Diaz.
What Artie learned and tasted back in Brooklyn, has been brought back to Tahiti Village, and now – quite ironically – a South Pacific-themed resort is the one and true purveyor of authentic Brooklyn-style pizza in Las Vegas.
Don’t forget to stop into Arturo’s Village Pizza the next time you are at the resort and see how Artie’s dream came true!
Lots of people think of our tropical resort paradise as a little slice of heaven. Beginning this summer, with the anticipated grand opening of our new Arturo’s Village Pizza, they’ll be eating a little slice of heaven.
Construction is set to begin in early February on the pizzeria, which will be located on the first floor of the Tahiti Village lobby building. Thematically, Arturo’s Village Pizza will project a casual, New York City-style vibe. Visitors can either eat in or grab and go. The main entrance will be located outside the main lobby building opposite 17˚ South Booze & Bites, our onsite bar and restaurant. There will also be an exterior patio entrance near Tower 1 on the north side of the property.
“People can expect the pizza in Arturo’s Pizzeria to have the highest quality ingredients,” said Chad Nelson, Tahiti Village Director Food and Beverage. “We are excited to use the best cheeses, dough, and ingredients to create an amazing product. Arturo’s will be a great addition to our resort and will round out our food and beverage amenities available to our guests at Tahiti Village.”
Arturo’s sauce will be made in-house daily and includes San Marzano tomato, garlic, herbs, and Grana Padano cheese. Visitors can choose from five different pizzas on the menu and two prepared salads. Pizza can be ordered by the slice or by the full pie.
The renderings below are a representation of what you can expect, but is subject to change. We at family friendly Tahiti Village Resort & Spa on the south end of the world famous Las Vegas Strip are excited to bring this project to fruition and will communicate our progress over the course of the construction.

Tahiti Village Resort in Las Vegas is pleased to serve our new official fall drink, the Fall Fashion! Created by executive chef Jason Diaz, the Fall Fashion is a delicious variation on the Old Fashioned and includes bourbon and simple syrup.
Enjoy the Fall Fashion throughout the fall and winter seasons exclusively at 17˚ South Booze & Bites, Tahiti Village’s onsite bar and restaurant. Be sure to book a fall visit to sample Jason’s creative twist on his favorite drink. Or you can easily make the Fall Fashion in the comfort of your home.
Here’s how, courtesy of Jason himself.
“I start out by making the simple syrup. I use brown sugar instead of white sugar because it has a deeper flavor, then add cinnamon sticks, whole clove, peppercorns, cherry and orange zest. I let this mixture steep for about 15 minutes. This allows the flavors to release and creates a solid base full of warm, fall-inspired flavors.”
“I muddle the cherry and orange slice in a glass, add the simple syrup, bitters and two ounces of bourbon, stir until well incorporated, and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass.”
The Fall Fashion is the latest in our line of official Tahiti Village drinks. You will also enjoy the zesty Tahitian Mary and the subtly sweet Tahitian Sunset.
This delightful drink captures the tropical essence of Tahiti Village. Featuring refreshing Bacardi Lime rum and a mix of proprietary ingredients, the Tahitian Sunset is the perfect drink to enjoy by the pool, at the lazy river, on your balcony – or anywhere!
The Tahitian Mary is more than a match for any Vegas hangover. It contains house vodka, green olives, lime and lemon wedges, bread and butter pickles, a celery stick, tajin and bacon. Yes, bacon! It is garnished with jalapeño peppers pickled in-house and flavored with homemade Bloody Mary mix. How we manage to get it all in the stylishly salted glass is beyond us.
Try them all on your next visit to family friendly Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort paradise!
Family friendly Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort paradise, is home to 50,000 happy vacation owners who return year after year to enjoy our relaxing lazy river, tropical beach pool, two 24-hour hot tubs, condo-style accommodations, convenient amenities, numerous onsite activities, and tempting menu choices at 17˚ South Booze & Bites.
In our new monthly feature on the Tahiti Village blog, you will meet a Tahiti Village owner who has embraced vacation ownership and discover the reasons our Polynesian-styled resort on the south end of the world famous Las Vegas Strip is like a second home. We’re sure you’ll relate!
For this, our premier owner profile, we present Saundra Dexter , an original Tahiti Village owner from Minnesota.
When you live in the coldest city in the contiguous United States, as Saundra Dexter does, visiting tropical Tahiti Village Resort & Spa in sunny Las Vegas is like going from an icebox to an oasis.
Saundra is one of the 6,000 or so inhabitants of International Falls, Minn., the so-called “Icebox of the Nation” where the temperature dips below freezing more than 100 days a year.
So it always time to rejoice when she and her husband, Sandy, pay their twice yearly visits to family friendly Tahiti Village in Las Vegas.
Out Of The Cold
“We absolutely love it here,” Saundra says of Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort paradise. “It’s just beautiful. Everyone’s so kind, and I like being away from everything yet having access to it all. We met a guy on the shuttle last night. He was staying at another resort and said he hadn’t slept in three nights. I said, `Honey, trust me. You’ll sleep here.’ That’s what I like about Tahiti Village. It’s peaceful; you can go into Vegas if you want to and still get away from the hustle and bustle. It’s like being away from everything yet having access to everything.”
Original Tahiti Village owners, the Dexters bought into vacation ownership here at Tahiti Village in 2003, three years before our grand opening. “It was just a lot of gravel,” Saundra says. She, Sandy and their two children were visiting Las Vegas and staying at Circus-Circus when they came across a vacation ownership booth in the casino.
“They asked us to take a tour. We said, `Sure, who not?’”
The following day they visited Club de Soleil, a sister Somerpointe Resorts property that had an architectural model of the proposed Tahiti Village property.
“They showed us where it would be,” Saundra says, “and we bought the Bora Bora sight unseen. Later on we bought a second Bora because we have two children, and when we pass each of them could have their own. Then we made it two Royal Tahitians to get the most out of our time. With two Royals we can do a week in a Moorea and a week in a Bora. I could have four weeks if I wanted.”
For the Dexters, it has been nothing but good times ever since. Before they became Tahiti Village Vacation Club members, they rarely if ever left International Falls. As owners of Sandy’s Place, a 38-seat mom and pop restaurant, time away was almost nonexistent.
“When you own a restaurant you don’t take vacations,” Saundra says, citing all the responsibilities on her plate. “I cook, I waitress, I do the books.” If she doesn’t do it, it may not get done.
After years of staying close to home, Sandy made a corporate decision for the both of them. “He finally said, `We are buying a condo so it will force you to go on vacation’.”
And it worked, Saundra says. “If I have the weeks to use I’m not going to lose them. We’re definitely going!”
The Dexters typically split sides with their two grown children, who take the Moorea while mom and pop get dibs on the larger Bora Bora.
“That way we can all be together yet still have our own space,” says Saundra, who brought the entire Sandy’s Place staff to Tahiti Village as a Christmas bonus (“they had so much fun”) and her mother and sister on another visit. It was not only their first trip to Las Vegas, but her sister’s first time on an airplane.
“It’s very nice to be able to bring your family and friends to Las Vegas without it costing a huge amount,” she says.
Outdoor Dining at 17° South
As a restaurant owner, Saundra naturally compares other eating establishments to her own. She enjoys the tropical ambiance and spacious patio dining at 17° South Booze & Bites, Tahiti Village’s popular onsite restaurant.
“I love that it opens up to the outside, especially when we’re here over the holidays and the temperature is in the 50s or 60s,” she says. “We can’t eat outside at home in December, so it’s a nice treat.”
As original owners, the Dexters have witnessed numerous positive additions to the property over the years, including 17˚ South, an adults-only hot tub, comprehensive room renovations, a complete lobby remodel, a coffee and snack bar addition to the Wiki Wiki gift shop, and most recently an all-new game arcade in Tower 1.
“We’re always excited to see what they’ve done since the last time we were here,” Saundra says. “It’s one of the things that keep us coming back, in addition to the resort staff and management. Everyone is so nice.”
Sandy, a former U.S. Marine who served in Vietnam, plays golf when he comes to Las Vegas, and the Dexters always see the sights, including the Fremont Street Experience, the Bellagio Fountains and Red Rock Canyon.
“We always have to go to Fremont Street to see the lights.”
But mainly, Saundra says, “we like to kick back and relax. It’s just so peaceful.”
Thank you, Saundra! We truly value your ownership.
