Thanks to our friends at ABC 13, if you find yourself at the resort during the end of October or October 31st, here is what there is to do in Vegas to celebrate the festivities.
Our Front Desk Staff are such a huge part of the resort and we could not be more thankful for everything that they do every day for our guests and owners. Some of you may have met Jayne Hirschi when checking in or checking out of the resort; she has been such an amazing member of our Tahiti Village family and we wanted to introduce her to you!
Jayne Hirschi has been a part of our team for almost 3 years and has worked in the Hospitality industry for 10 years. She graduated with a Bachelor in Hospitality Management from her home country in the Philippines.
Hirschi has worked in many different areas of Tourism and provides a wide range of knowledge and understanding. She has worked with airline, travel agencies, and hotels both in her home country, the Middle East, and in the United States.
“When I migrated from the Philippines way back 2010, I worked in the Central Reservations Department for Ritz-Carlton for 4 years,” said Hirschi.
Hirschi is a people person through and through and loves being able to interact with guests and owners from all over the world and being able to learn other cultures.
“Jayne always brings a cheerful and welcoming attitude to share with her coworkers and guests every day! On special occasions, she will even bake a sweet treat or savory surprise for her colleagues to enjoy. She has a great knack for remembering birthdays and makes everyone feel special to brighten up their day!” said Jose Ramirez-Quant, Guest Service Manager.
Being in the industry for 10 years now, Hirschi says that working the Front Desk takes a lot of love, love for people, guests, co-workers, and love for the industry. Strength and focus are two key traits that Hirschi claims every Front Desk person needs.
“Jayne checked us in at the front desk. She was really great! Provided recommendations and wanted to make sure we had a great experience,” said a Tahiti Village guest.
Hirschi is always putting her best foot forward and making sure that guest’s first experiences at the resort are one’s to remember. Her happy and cheerful personality draws people to her and creates such a warm and welcoming environment.
“Always look at the bright side of life, let’s all give love and respect to one another,” said Hirshci.
We are so thankful to have Jayne as part of the Tahiti Village family!
Are you looking to take the family on a scenic experience in Las Vegas, but don’t know good hiking trails that will be fun for all? We have you covered! Right in Vegas’ backyard are some of the most beautiful and picturesque sights to experience with an outdoor aspect for everyone.
Las Vegas has several different places for families to go, one of the most popular being Red Rock Canyon. People go to see the infamous “red rocks” and to hike or take an evening drive around the scenic loop. Another gorgeous experience is Mount Charleston is, especially for those visiting Vegas in the winter months. The snow and winter activities that can be done on the mountain are unbelievable. Lastly The Valley of Fire is worth the drive as it is full of rich and beautiful history.
Red Rock Canyon has 13 miles of a beautiful scenic drive to admire the amazing canyons and peaks. A Visitor Center is located just past the entrance for guest’s convenience. It includes indoor and outdoor exhibits, plants throughout the canyon, wildlife to expect, and desert tortoise habitats. You can also bike, climb, and horseback ride as well. The daily entrance fee for a car/truck is $15 per vehicle. All entrance fees go towards upkeep to the canyon.
Easy/Moderate – Calico Tanks Trail

Mahana Spa has been such a beautiful and relaxing part of our tropical resort for years and we are so happy to introduce our new massage therapist, Ava Gomez. Gomez has been in the massage therapy industry for over 10 years and has had the pleasure of working in some really amazing places such as The Ritz-Carlton, The Waldorf Astoria, and many more before joining the Mahana Spa team.
Gomez attended and completed the massage therapy program from Kingston University in 2008, has been a licensed message therapist since 2010 and a licensed esthetician since 2015. Her experience and knowledge is diverse and focused on a more holistic approach to treatment.
Being a massage therapist means that it does not matter how long you are in the industry, there is always something new to learn. With different cultures, specializations and teachings, the knowledge is vastly open to new realizations.
Gomez recalls whenever she was sick as a child, her mother rubbing vapor rub on her back, chest and feet or her grandmother’s scalp massage accompanied with a prayer to feel better. It was these experiences that drove the initial love of massage therapy.
“Massage therapy has allowed me to fill a void of cultural identity. In Mexico and various Latin American villages they often had a healer who treated various conditions. These special individuals were called a “Curandero(a)” many of whom specialized in massage therapy or some type of bodywork who they identified as a “Sobador(a)”. Similarly, the Polynesian culture has a vast history of massage techniques and traditional healing practices that I hope to implement into our spa menu at Mahana Spa,” Gomez said.
Gomez likes to take her guests on a sensory journey during their chosen service and specializes in making memories. Engaging guests in senses from the aroma of the essential oils to the sound of the music, it is meant to make them feel better not only physically but also giving them a chance to connect with themselves mentally and spiritually, which provides for a one of a kind experience.
The question is almost always asked of which massage service is recommended. Gomez would recommend that everyone try the Island Blend. It is a great service for those who can’t decide between a relaxing massage, deep tissue massage, and hot stone treatment. It allows the guest to pick two of the modalities and blend them into one.
Mahana Spa is Gomez’s sanctuary and plans on researching the different healing practices and traditions of the indigenous Polynesians as well as the indigenous Native Americans of Nevada to incorporate into services.
“In some ways it feels like I was always destined to be a healer, I love that I can pull ideas from various schools of thought to treat one individual but also can connect with the how they used to treat people back then,” said Gomez.
Ava Gomez is certainly an amazing individual and addition to our family at the resort. We are so excited to learn more from her, her wisdom, knowledge and connections with guests and owners!

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! We are doing everything we can to comply with these rules while still maintaining the level of enjoyment that you have grown to expect. With your help, we can navigate through these unchartered territories together and shed those masks! We would like to thank our owners, guests and employees that have been so understanding and cooperative during these times so we can be the Tahiti Village we all want!
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!

One of our most popular attractions at family friendly Tahiti Village Resort & Spa is the lazy river. Featuring a scenic palm tree island and four waterfall features at fixed points along its route, the 185,000-gallon lazy river is an eighth-of-a-mile of pure floating pleasure. Just how popular is it? It’s so popular that it inspired at least one person to write a song and post the performance to YouTube. We think it’s a great song, if we do say so ourselves, and are pleased to present it below for your viewing and listening pleasure.
Chillin’ to the max!
The heated lazy river here at Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ tropical resort paradise, is open year-round for your floating pleasure. So grab an inner tube on your next visit and experience the true meaning of relaxation. Situated at the south end of the world famous Strip, Tahiti Village offers a welcome respite in a gorgeous island setting.
Tahiti Village is the place to be
With three residential guest towers surrounding a lushly landscaped courtyard, Tahiti Village has numerous desirable amenities and attractions. Guests can lounge by our sand-entry beach pool or unwind in guest suites offering uncommon space, convenience and privacy. Each of Tahiti Village’s three unit configurations has separate bedrooms, with the one-bedroom Bora Bora and two-bedroom Royal Tahitian featuring full kitchens, washer-dryers, steam showers, jetted tubs and private balconies. The Bora Bora and one-bedroom Moorea can accommodate four people, while the deluxe Royal Tahitian – a combination of the two – can sleep eight.
Tiki torches and more!
Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical paradise, also features the following:
An onsite bar and bistro (17° South Booze & Bites)
A convenience store-gift shop with an adjacent food and beverage counter (the Wiki Wiki Stop)
A fitness center
A new family arcade (Tiki Cove)
And, coming this summer, Arturo’s Village Pizza
Whether you’re staying for a week or a weekend, Tahiti Village has everything you need for the time of your life.
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.
Take a bite out of summer with a visit to Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort paradise! Dining in Las Vegas never tasted better.
