Born and raised in Tahiti, French Polynesia, Manoa left his native island in 2006 at the age 19 to study international business at the University Jean Moulin Lyon 3 in France. After obtaining his master’s degree, he couldn’t resist his homeland’s call and decided to call it a day and go back to The Islands of Tahiti. From this moment on, he realized how lucky he was to be born in the most beautiful place in the world. This feeling pushed him to join the Tahiti Tourisme Head Office team in 2013. As part of the specialty markets department, he oversees Tahiti Tourism’s promotion strategy for Nautical Tourism and especially for Superyachts. Today, he is still driven by the love for his Islands, and he does his best to share it with the rest of the world.
