Additionally twenty-five wholesalers and travel agents were lucky enough to bring a guest to help celebrate as guests of Tahiti Tourisme.
“Tahiti is one of the world’s most idyllic, romantic and aspirational destinations,” said Air Tahiti Nui’s regional director Australia, Craig Lee.
“This new movie once again showcases the beauty of our island home, and reinforces the popular description of Tahiti as heaven on earth.”
Tahiti Tourisme regional director Australia-New Zealand, Robert Thompson said stars like Vince Vaughan and Kristin Davis had given Tahiti a huge tick in the movie, which was mainly filmed in a luxury resort on the beautiful island of Bora Bora.
