Tahiti Receptions
In February of this year, we launched the Tahiti Receptions previously known as the Tahiti Workshops. The Tahiti Receptions are being held in 18 cities across the United States. By invitation only, the receptions are a great opportunity for qualifying motivated Travel Advisors to learn more about the destination and become more confident in selling it.


Under The Spotlight This Month: Tetiaroa, Marlon Brando’s Dream
Located a quick 15-minute flight from the island of Tahiti, the small atoll of Tetiaroa is one of natures most amazing creation. Pristine and untouched, it’s no surprise that Marlon Brando fell in love with it during the filming of “Mutiny of the Bounty” in the 1960’s. Within one of nature’s most breathtaking sanctuaries, a large variety of birds, and sea life have found the perfect shelter. In the past, Tetiaroa was the summer hideaway for Tahitian royalty. On July 1st of this year, a few privileged discerning travelers will be able to set foot on Marlon Brando’s “motu” paradise for the ultimate experience in luxury, with the opening of “The Brando” eco-resort.

Excursion Highlight: Tetiaroa
On Tetiaroa, nature’s beauty goes beyond imagination. This sanctuary is home to amazing fauna and offers visitors many ways to be part of the dream by snorkeling among colorful tropical fish and rays, or stand up paddle above the crystal-clear lagoon. Sometimes, it is nice to just relax and reconnect with the wonderful gifts nature has to offer.
