Meet The Tahitians: Meet Torea


This past month we were invited over to the Islands of Tahiti by our good friends at Tahiti Tourisme so that we could learn exactly what the experience is like for visitors during the low season period.

It may have been the rainy season, but we only saw rain on 2 days and to be honest, it was a refreshing welcome from the warmth of the Tahitian Summer.

The islands of Tahiti are arguably among the most stunningly beautiful in the world. Formed from the demise of 3 volcanoes, these islands not only have an incredible natural beauty, but they have an ancient, rich and diverse cultural heritage which remains strong to this day.

In this series, We seek to learn more about the traditions, beliefs, culture and heritage as We set out to discover the true essence of Tahiti when we ‘Meet the Tahitians’…

Episode 1 – Torea Colas

Torea is the Marketing and Communications Director for Air Tahiti Nui, the national carrier of French Polynesia and he has the role of ensuring that the essence of Tahiti is captured and felt whenever anyone first sets foot aboard the national carrier of Tahiti. 

In this first episode, recorded in the Air Tahiti Nui head office on our first full day in Tahiti, we asked Torea to help us to understand what “Mana” is and how Air Tahiti Nui brings the “Mana” to their flights.
