Tahiti and her islands were named “Sexiest Romance/Honeymoon Destination - South Pacific” for the 12th consecutive year and “Best Selling Destination - South Pacific” for the 2nd consecutive year in Recommend Magazine’s 15th annual Readers’ Choice Awards.


 “All of us here at Recommend are proud of the participation we have received from our travel agent readers over the 15-year history of our much coveted Readers’ Choice Awards. And the fact that Tahiti has won, for 12 years in a row, in the category of “The Sexiest Romance/Honeymoon Destination” and this year’s win as “The Best Selling Destination for the South Pacific,” is a testament to the value our readers have for the exceptional travel product that is Tahiti,” says Rick Shively, Editor-in Chief of Recommend.


On behalf of the entire team at Tahiti Tourisme North America – we wanted to thank the travel agent community for this great news.  We're extremely pleased to have been voted the sexiest romance and honeymoon destination for 12 years in a row and honored as the best selling destination for the South Pacific,” noted Jonathan Reap, Deputy Director of Tahiti Tourisme North America.


The winners of the awards will be highlighted editorially in the December 2011, Recommend Readers’ Choice Awards Issue.
