Last week’s return of CaySea the Mermaid and Acoustics and Ale to the tropical beach pool marked a welcome early start to summer here at family friendly Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’s tropical resort paradise. CaySea will entertain kids of all ages every Saturday from 1-2 p.m. Acoustics and Ale, featuring beer and a revolving cast of acoustic musicians, is every Thursday from 4-7 p.m.
CaySea, wholesome spawn of an unlikely union, made a big splash with Tahiti Village guests last summer, and we are thrilled to have her back this year. Although her origins were unknown and her motives unclear when she arrived unexpectedly at our pool gate last May, asking to be let in, CaySea’s charm and beauty cast a mesmerizing spell on our pool staff – and they had no choice but to acquiesce.
Once inside, she cut through the water like a born descendent of Poseidon, her speckled tail undulating like a piston, and she made a beeline for a group of children frolicking in the shallows near the sandy beach bottom entry. They immediately clustered around her and were instantly captivated by this most unusual creature. CaySea read them “tales” from her mermaid book and engaged in playful games featuring colorful plastic eggs.
To quote Mermaid CaySea herself, it was a “fin-tastic” fun time for all – and will be again!
Acoustics and Ale
When you think about great things that go great together, listening to music and quaffing a cold one has to be high up on anyone’s list. Add to that pairing a peaceful poolside setting and you get Acoustics and Ale, our weekly music and beer mixer featuring an array of eclectic (though not electric) musicians from Nick Mattera Productions. If you haven’t tried a Sierra Nevada Beer yet, be sure to grab one from the Sandbox Bar. You’ll understand why one of the first craft brewers in the nation is still going stronger than ever as you relax poolside listening to great acoustic sounds.
Family friendly Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ tropical resort retreat, is delighted to announce our designation as an RCI Gold Crown Resort for 2019. Only a select number of RCI-affiliated resorts meet RCI’s requirements for recognition and have earned the RCI Gold Crown Resort award. These resorts have attained high levels of excellence in resort accommodations, hospitality and member experience ratings as measured by RCI over the previous 12-month period.
“Setting a standard worthy of an RCI Gold Crown Resort property designation is something we put into practice daily in every area of our organization,” said Chris Breed, Soleil Management Vice President of Nevada operations. “That we’ve been recognized by RCI exchange members for providing excellent accommodations and customer service is a great honor. Continuing to maintain that standard is a great challenge and one we happily accept.”
RCI’s Resort Recognition Program helps ensure that RCI-affiliated resorts adhere to RCI’s standards for quality in accommodations, hospitality and member experience.
Achieving RCI Gold Crown Resort status is dependent almost exclusively on RCI member feedback through post-departure surveys. RCI visitors are asked to rate their experience on a 1 to 5 scale in the following areas:
The fact we’ve been able to consistently earn high marks is testament to our team’s pride and work ethic, and we sincerely thank them for their efforts in helping us achieve this honor.
RCI is the worldwide leader in vacation exchange with more than 4,000 affiliated resorts in approximately 100 countries. RCI pioneered the concept of vacation exchange in 1974, offering members increased flexibility and versatility with their vacation ownership experience. Today, through RCI® Weeks, the traditional week-for-week exchange system, and RCI Points®, the industry’s first global points-based exchange system, RCI provides flexible vacation options to its approximately 3.7 million RCI subscribing members each year.
Are you suffering from Guilty Vacation Syndrome, the nagging urge to cancel or delay vacations due to guilt? Based on the results of a recent family vacation survey, you probably are. It is especially likely if you’re a Millennial, 59 percent of which report feeling ashamed for taking or planning a vacation in a time when vacation-shaming in offices nationwide and around the word is growing at an unprecedented rate.
Of those 59 percent that reported having unused paid vacation days, 40 percent said they left five or more vacation days unused because they did not want to deal with the guilt associated with taking a vacation.
Neither are older individuals immune from the guilt. In the same survey, 41 percent of individuals 35 and older felt the same symptoms of Guilty Vacation Syndrome, or GVS. Symptoms (misplaced emotions, indecisiveness, sadness) often go undetected or are mistaken for other, less serious ailments. GVS can also have the ironic side effect impacting your work productivity.
Recent research also shows that an astounding 55 percent of Americans didn’t use all of their time off in 2015, and 65 percent say that their company discourages, sends mixed messages, or says nothing about taking personal time off.
With vacation-shaming growing in offices across the world, there has been a surge in diagnoses of GVS. Many feel that despite wanting a vacation, they shouldn’t take one.
Proven remedies for GVS include:
Realizing that vacations are a necessity and not a luxury.
Commit to an annual vacation—a recipe for stronger ties with families and friends, less stress and better health.
Learning from those that have never suffered from this malady (specifically, timeshare owners who have continued to make vacations a priority).
It’s proven that one to two weeks away from the daily routine leads to better job performance and productivity—perhaps helping to make your job even more secure when you return to it.
Our advice? Book a visit to Tahiti Village as soon as you can. Las Vegas is a number-one doctor-recommended cure for GVS. You certain to feel like a new you!

Frequent Tahiti Village guests Todd Wienke and Oshia Collins-Waters are getting married in Las Vegas on the one-year anniversary of the 1 October tragedy and holding their reception at our resort.
“We are turning the memory of this day from a negative to a positive in the hopes that all survivors do the same,” said Todd, who was shot three times. “Together we will heal with each other’s help and prove that love will always prevail.”
Country music fans from California, Todd and Oshia were staying at Tahiti Village for the Route 91 Harvest festival. Todd was shot once in the left lower back shielding Oshia as they lay on the ground; once in the left arm as they fled their location near the stage; and once more on the left side during their desperate dash for cover.
Oshia survived without a physical scratch but Todd has shrapnel imbedded, perhaps permanently, on his left side from the shoulder to lower back. The pain he endures is a constant reminder of the senseless tragedy that changed their lives forever but also brought them closer together.
The outpouring of support Tahiti Village, a Somerpointe Resort, has received from its vendors eager to lend their services for the wedding and reception has been nothing short of overwhelming.
“With each phone call our banquets team made our vendors made it very clear they wanted to be a part of this love story,” said Nader Mossavi, Tahiti Village Food and Beverage Director.
What follows are some of the amazing examples of generosity exhibited by our vendors:
Cake Azure has discounted a $3,500 cake down to just its costs.
Lamb Weston, North America’s premier potato provider, has donated all the starch products.
Bacardi, Johnson Brothers and Patron have donated enough alcohol to make the reception a party the couple won’t forget.
US Foods has donated some of the food for the main course.
Good Vibrations has discounted its normal fee to keep the music flowing.
A’kaya Party Rentals has donated the linen to make the event the perfect “policeman blue.”
One of the biggest and most special donations of all has come from Las Vegas country music star Sam Riddle. Our bride heard his song “Vegas Strong,” which embodies all that is amazing about the people and the city we love so much, and knew immediately she wanted it played after Todd’s speech honoring the 58 innocent victims taken that night.
Angela Gimmellie, Somerpointe Resorts’ Director of Project Management, sent Sam a Facebook message with Oshia’s request. She received a reply within minutes. “He never hesitated once,” Angela said. “He immediately wanted to be a part of what he knows will be an amazing night. All he said was `count me in’.”
For the honeymoon, Somerpointe Resorts and exchange partner RCI will donate a week’s stay anywhere in the world RCI has a resort. We can’t think of two more deserving individuals than Todd an Oshia to experience the wedding and reception of a lifetime. Vegas Stronger!
With the first triple digit temperatures of the year arriving this week with the fury of a vengeful blowtorch, sending guests scurrying to the tropical beach pool and lazy river for instant cooling relief, it’s safe to say the summer season is upon us at Tahiti Village even if it’s still officially spring. The onset of May also augurs the return of our famous Summer Sunday Luau – just weeks away from its traditional Memorial Day weekend start – and now, as a sunny supplement to that popular event, we’re presenting Acoustics & Ale poolside every Thursday at 6 p.m. throughout the summer.
You can quench your parched palate with a selection of enticing beers from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company while you kick back and listen to a revolving roster of talented musical artists from Nick Mattera Productions. Yes, that Nick Mattera, the popular acoustic guitarist who performs at our weekly Owners Night inside 17˚ South Booze & Bites.
If you haven’t tried a Sierra Nevada beer yet, be sure to grab an original Pale Ale, a Hazy Little Thing IPA or a Tropical Torpedo IPA from the Sandbox Bar. You’ll understand why one of the first craft brewers in the nation is still going stronger than ever as you relax poolside listening to great acoustic sounds. We’re also giving away Sierra Nevada swag, including T-shirts and bottle openers.
