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.

When the NHRA Nationals pays its biannual visit to Las Vegas, you can count on two things: 1) Terry McMillen sending his 8,000-horsepower dragster down the track at more than 300 miles per hour and 2) Terry staying here at Tahiti Village when he’s through.
As the official resort of Terry and his crew, we’ll be hosting a meet and greet with the top fuel drag racer from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Wednesday, Oct. 25, ahead of his appearance at the NHRA Nationals at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Terry will be chatting with fans, signing autographs and posing for photos next to his Amalie Oil dragster from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. beneath the porte cochere. You may even have the opportunity to sit inside the cockpit!
Terry’s team will unload the dragster at approximately 10 a.m. Refreshments and popcorn will be provided. For more information on Terry, please visit www.terrymcmillen.com. For more information on the race, please go to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway website at www.lvms.com or www.nhra.com, the National Hot Rod Association’s site.
October is a great time to visit Tahiti Village, and not just because of the mild fall weather. Like everywhere else we’re gearing up for Halloween, and here at Las Vegas’ tropical resort retreat that means pumpkins figure prominently in the seasonal celebration.
Throughout the month we’re holding a pumpkin decorating activity every Friday from 12:30-1 p.m. in the Skyview Lounge (Tower 5, 10th floor). Here you can join our activity coordinators for a great time transforming an ordinary pumpkin into a wild creation sparked by your own imagination. Paint, glitter and markers are provided.
We hope to see you here!
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Breed to Tahiti Village general manager. Chris comes to us with a strong hotel and timeshare background, and literally has hospitality in her blood. Both her parents were in the industry, and Chris actually lived in a hotel after her father relocated to open a new property. She has held positions in almost every department except engineering, but launched her career in the housekeeping department at Shell Vacations Club.
Born in Northern California and raised on the big island of Hawaii, Chris moved to Las Vegas to open the Desert Rose Resort. Most recently, she was Nevada Regional Vice President for Wyndham Vacation Ownership. Chris also served on the board of directors for the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association.
We welcome her to Tahiti Village! Be sure to introduce yourself to Chris on your next visit. She is always happy to meet our owners and guests.
Join us at 17˚ South Booze & Bites inside the Tahiti Village main lobby for all the NFL action every Thursday night, Sunday and Monday night!

Select drink purchases are required to receive raffle tickets for the jersey drawing. Please see the bartender for details. Don’t miss a minute of the 2017 season.

Our recently renovated and renamed food and beverage counter, rebranded The Village Café from the informally titled Quickie Wiki, is now serving coffee worthy of the attractive new awning and appealing orange tile.
“We still have the same coffee offerings, but we think they are now much more full and flavorful,” said Barbara Mailhiot, Wiki Wiki operations manager. “The difference is, our new illy brand coffee uses an espresso bean instead of the typical coffee bean.”
Illy is an Italian coffee roasting company that specializes in the production of espresso, according to Wikipedia. The coffee is packaged as whole bean, pre-ground coffee and blended from Arabica beans from multiple sources. The grounds are packaged in steel canisters and pressurized with an inert gas rather than air.
Based on that description, it’s easy to see why illy is found in all MGM and Station Casino properties in Las Vegas. It’s just that good.
Iced tea lovers, fear not. We haven’t forgotten you. We are now serving a new brand of green and black teas and working on a cold brew tea as well.
Be sure to stop by on your next visit to Tahiti Village and try our new and improved caffeinated beverages!
