Enjoy an a-maze-ing Halloween at Tahiti Village!

Oct. 28 marks the start of a festive Halloween season at Tahiti Village with the opening of our Haunted Maze, where there’s a friendly fright around every turn. The maze will be open daily in Manihi Isle right through Halloween night, Oct. 31, when we raise the curtain on our third annual Haunted Carnival.

The Carnival is from 5-7 p.m. in the Island Courtyard and includes trick or treating and a costume contest. Please visit the front desk in the main lobby building starting at 4:30 p.m. to pick up trick-or-treat bags, maps, and goodies. The costume contest is slated for 6 p.m. back in the Island Courtyard, where we’ll also have music and games.

Unlike other Halloween attractions that try to stop your heart with terrifying shock tactics, our wholesome Haunted Carnival offers a fun time for the whole family. We hope to see you here!

The hunt for hidden Easter candy commences this Sunday morning at Tahiti Village

Young treasure seekers will scramble for hidden goodies at our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 16. The event goes from 9-10:30 a.m. and will begin with a meetup at the Island Courtyard. Children 12 and under will hunt in Manihi Isle, while those 13 and over will search the lazy river. More than 3,000 candy-filled plastic eggs will be there for the taking. Bags will be provided.

“This is our most well-attended event,” said Tara Steininger, Tahiti Village activities director. “We’re forecasting 350-500 participants this year. We had 375 last year.”

Following the hunt, participants will return to the Island Courtyard for music, crafts, games, and a jelly bean guessing contest. This a wonderful activity for the entire family.

It was “busyness” as usual at Tahiti Village in 2016

We concluded Phase II of our comprehensive guest room accommodations. Looking good!

It has been an eventful year here at Tahiti Village, with numerous projects contributing to the value and beautification of your home resort.

January saw the completion of Phase II of our multimillion-dollar guest unit enhancement. Taken together with Phase I, which brought new flooring, carpeting, and sofa sleepers to all rooms, the addition of new furniture, lamps, bedding, and artwork will have us looking great for years to come.

The first month of 2016 also saw us begin work on our vacant lot beautification project, which resulted most significantly in the May opening of Manihi Isle. The land between the main pool and lazy river, for so long a fenced off stretch of dirt and rock, is now a tranquil gathering spot with green grass, fresh flowers, and lounge chairs.

Fresh coats of paint to all fences, carports, gates, and guest room interiors completed our January tasks.

In March we embarked on a major landscaping refresher and replacement, and in May we installed garage fencing and a fencing extension atop the Manor Suites wall.

Our new online store offers a great selection of Tahiti Village merchandise.

The July launch of our new online store meant you could buy as much Tahiti Village gear as you like, wherever you were.

After a delay, dining room tabletops finally arrived in August and were promptly installed in the Bora Bora units. They can take anything you dish out!

Finally, in November, we installed SALTO lock systems on all exterior gates, including the pool area and lazy river. This state-of-the-art, wire-free Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is much more reliable than the old mag-stripe keycards. Best of all, the key won’t demagnetize if it comes into contact with your cell phone.

Thanks again for being part of the Tahiti Village family. We truly value your ownership and hope to see you in 2017. Happy New Year!

 

How to plan your time off and boost your happiness

If you overlook your vacation time at Tahiti Village, you won't be able to overlook our beautiful tropical beach pool!
If you overlook your vacation time at Tahiti Village, how will you overlook our beautiful tropical beach pool?

Research proves that Americans who take time to plan how they will use their vacation time in the year ahead are happier than those who do not. Simply having something to look forward to – like a trip to Tahiti Village! – improves your happiness. But nearly half of American households fail to take the simple step of planning their time off, a step that can be made much easier by having a timeshare.

Here are some simple steps from our friends at Vacation Better to make sure that you don’t make the mistake of not using all of your vacation time:

First, confirm your paid time off benefits. Don’t take someone else’s word for it, confirm what you have available by asking your manager or HR director. After this is accomplished, the next important step is to review your calendar for the year to see when you could actually take a vacation.

Now, the fun part: this is where your dreams and goals come in. What are you going to cross off your bucket list this year? Where have you been wanting to travel? What are you dying to try? You don’t necessarily need to know what you’ll do with every vacation day—just plan the days off now. Getting it on the calendar is what matters most.

Finally, it is time to talk with your boss and colleagues about your plans to take time off. But don’t be anxious: nearly all senior business leaders believe vacation time benefits their employees – and the company.

It’s time to stop feeling guilty about trying to take a vacation each year and remember there are many health and wellness benefits that come along with an annual vacation. You work hard all year, you deserve to have some well-earned, time off. With a timeshare you are ensuring that you take a vacation each year since it is already prepaid!

Manihi Isle is the newest great place to gather at Tahiti Village

Manihi Isle

We are pleased to report the land between the main pool and lazy river, once a fenced off stretch of forbidding dirt and rock, is now a tranquil gathering place with green grass, fresh flowers and lounge chairs.

We call it Manihi Isle.

The 4,000-square foot space will serve as an attractive venue for a variety of activities and offer a more direct route between our popular aquatic attractions. Visitors going back and forth between the pool and lazy river can access Manihi Isle – pronounced Muh-knee-hee – through new interior gates and reduce their travel time.

To celebrate the grand opening, we’ve scheduled a three-pack of fun for this weekend beginning Friday, May 27, with a happy hour featuring food, music, games and a cash bar from 2-6 p.m.

Saturday, May 28, is movie night. The festivities begin at 4 p.m. and include face painting and games like bocce ball, waterfall fishing and cornhole. The movie will begin at dusk. Popcorn, a variety of other fun food, and a specialty cocktail from our cash bar will be available.

We’ll conclude the Manihi Isle grand opening weekend with a luau brunch from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Sunday, May 29. You’ll listen to authentic Tahitian music as you enjoy a continental-style breakfast with juice.

Be sure to stop in for a look on your visit to Tahiti Village. We think you’ll be impressed.
