Not Just for Honeymooners – Millennials and Babyboomers Take On Tahiti

October 31, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

No longer just the ultimate honeymoon destination, Tahiti’s latest visitor figures show that babyboomers and millennials account for the lion’s share of visitors to the islands.

In the first five months of the year, young travellers (15-34) and those aged around the babyboomer bracket (55-74) each accounted for around a third of visitors to the Islands of Tahiti. Meanwhile the month of May saw a 26 per cent year-on-year increase among 15 to 24-year-old travellers.

While the destination’s overwater bungalows are still a big drawcard for couples, Air Tahiti Nui Regional Manager Australia New Zealand Alan Roman said the freedom and value afforded by rental homes and family-run pensions was attracting different markets to the Islands.

“Tahiti is an incredibly diverse destination, combining stunning natural beauty with a year-round tropical climate, an ancient culture and myriad activities on land and at sea. What we’re seeing is groups of friends hire out homes and rent a car so they can see the islands DIY-style, as well as babyboomers totally immersing in the destination at rustic B&B type accommodation,” Mr Roman said.

“Young Aussie travellers are also realising that the ultimate getaway is closer than they think with Tahiti only a hop and a skip across the Pacific – about the same travel time as other millennial hot spots such as Hawaii and Thailand.”

In conjunction with Tahiti Travel Connection, Air Tahiti Nui is offering pension packages starting from $1999* per person including return economy airfares and five nights in a pension on Tahiti. For more information visit:

Mr Roman said that combined air and accommodation packages still presented a great value way to sell Tahiti, but until November 30, 2017, Air Tahiti Nui was also offering return economy flights from Australia from $1219* enabling millennials and babyboomers the chance to take advantage of a more flexible itinerary.

To book, visit or see a travel agent. 

*Subject to availability. Terms and conditions apply. Airfare is on sale until November 30, 2017.
