Travel industry guests were treated to a French Polynesian-inspired lunch of poisson cru (raw fish salad) and poulet fafa(chicken with taro) – a taste of Tahiti at the new Sofitel Darling Harbour on Friday.
Guests were entertained with colourful Tahitian dancing, and a dazzling display of Robert Wan pearls. Updates on the destination included South Pacific Management’s collection of Polynesian hotels, and Air Tahiti Nui revealing its new Dreamliner fleet would feature a three-class cabin configuration including premium economy.
Air Tahiti Nui regional manager Alan Roman, Tahiti Tourisme director Robert Thompson, SPM business development manager Alain Campignon and Atout France director Patrick Benhamou hosted the event, along with representatives from Robert Wan.
All guests who attended the ‘Déjeuner Tahitien’ received a piece of Tahiti to take away with them – a gift from Robert Wan and a bottle of Monoi. Booking.com’s Guillaume Wolf won the lucky door prize of a trip to Tahiti.
