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.

A delicious new drink made from a secret Bacardi recipe and an old favorite reimagined by our bar staff have become the official drinks of Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort. Just in time for your summer imbibing pleasure, we are pleased to introduce the subtly sweet Tahitian Sunset and the zingy zesty Tahitian Mary.
Our partnership with Bacardi has resulted in a drink that captures the tropical essence of Tahiti Village. When you order the Tahitian Sunset, you’re essentially getting Tahiti Village in a glass. 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!
Five years in the making and overflowing with 10 delectable ingredients, the Tahitian Mary – our over-the-top take on the popular Bloody Mary – is more than a match for any Vegas hangover. Garnished with jalapeño peppers pickled in-house and flavored with homemade Bloody Mary mix, the Tahitian Mary will have you feeling like your old self in no time.
The brainchild of our intrepid bar staff at 17˚ South Booze & Bites, the Tahitian Mary is the T-Rex of its species. In addition to the aforementioned jalapeños, it contains house vodka, green olives, lime and lemon wedges, bread and butter pickles, a celery stick, tajin and – as a telling testament to its exquisite excess – bacon! How we manage to get it all in the stylishly salted glass is beyond us.
With its ample spice notes, the Tahitian Mary isn’t a cocktail you would necessarily expect to find at tropical Tahiti Village. All we know is this: you’ll be happy you did!
