Tiki Village is a reproduction of an authentic Polynesian village on the island of Moorea. It is an exceptionally romantic place to have your wedding. A Polynesian priest will conduct the ceremony, to the soft singing of a traditional Polynesian choir. The ceremony can be tailor-made to suit the desires of the wedding couple. For example, you can both be given a tattoo and a traditional massage, and there’s even the possibility of a royal procession.
