Aggie Grey’s to call Tahiti home

TAHITI Tourisme has welcomed the news that iconic South Pacific hotel Aggie Grey's will soon call Tahiti home as the new owner of the Le Meridien Tahiti.

As the hotel where author James Michener began writing his Pulitzer-prize winning Tales of the South Pacific, Aggie Grey's Samoa has long been a name synonymous with the Pacific region.

Tahiti Tourisme Australia Director Robert Thompson said the Aggie Grey's name would help lure Australians to French Polynesia as it has been doing for nearly 70 years in Samoa.

"The iconic Aggie Grey's name evokes the magic of a bygone era and when the name is combined with the hotel's reputation for quality service, an already-established management team and the world class facilities and operations offered through Starwood, its charm will prove as irresistible as Tahiti's blue lagoons," Mr Thompson said.

The move to Tahiti will be the first outside of Samoa for Aggie Grey's with Le Meridien Tahiti soon to be known as Aggie Grey's Le Meridien Tahiti.
