We stayed in No 1, a newly renovated, stylish villa right on the beach 💞 The location was amazing, the bed so comfortable and the villa well equipped. Breakfast was the best ever with tropical fruit, smoothies and more. All the staff are friendly and helpful especially highly organised and charming Cheran, the MD. The lagoon was excellent and safe for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. This is a family run business and they have an excellent vision to provide unique Atutaki accommodation. When each villa is renovated this accommodation will be hard to beat on Atutaki! Easy walk to Koru Cafe and The Boatshed. Highly recommended, much preferred to the large impersonal resorts. Such a shame Covid once again pauses their vision. 💞🏝🌸

It was so exciting when we finally got the opportunity to welcome you guys on arrival with our traditional hand made flower leis and our cheeky island smile that goes with 'Kia Orana".... beauti Thank you so much for your kind words! Your shared experience means the world to us. Happy to hear your hostess Poni, made some helpful suggestions to visit our friendly, local café "Koru Cafe" and exploring around our bay prior to your check in. Fantastic to hear our senior inhouse Puna did a great job in upkeeping a squeaky clean villa for you. We hand picked the fresh flowers from our garden onsite to have it sit right next to your bed for you... Your excellent at noticing the details we provided for you. From your bathroom amenities to your room décor and facilities. The last thing we would want you to think about is the bare essentials for your room. Your only thought when staying with us should be …,"Yayyyy!, Finally!... We're here:) ! Oh, and the king bed... Its so great you found it comfortable, the sheep must have fell off by the count of one:). It's so awesome you were able to do fun activities and at the same time relax with us. Having the kayaks onsite means, you'll have the opportunity to paddle out to one of our tiny remote islands with your packed picnic lunch to enjoy on the beach after snorkeling with the little fish. It's like, having a private island to yourself for the day! Pretty sneaky right?! :) . Our reclining sun loungers you relaxed on, makes it easy to get into "please do not disturb", (I'm on beach mode) state of mind. The Vaka cruise has a great string band onboard, did those island boys get you up and dancing when you were cruising across our lagoon :) ... Fun times! @beauti it was a pure delight to host you here at Tai Roto Bay. Thank you so much for visiting our shores and we can't wait to receive you again! Meitaki Ranuinui!-Cheran

We live on a beach, so we are tough to please. We love Aitutaki and now have a new fave, Tai Roto Bay Resort for the genuine warm welcome at the airport and hospitality. Thank you for making my husband's birthday so special. Unbelievable night sky for star gazing and saw 7 shooting stars for good luck. We have stayed at Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort, Tamanu Beach, Pacific Resort the past 3 years but they were not available, so we were fortunate Tai Roto Bay Resort accepted our booking for one night, until we could get our over-the-water bungalow at Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort. One third of the price but three times better! It’s difficult to select a resort for one week stay unseen but we recommend Tai Roto Bay after our stay and hope to return in October. We immediately jumped into the sea for a sunset swim and enjoyed cold beer in the fridge afterwards. The swimming is the best of any properties we stayed on Aitutaki, dug in the lagoon like a swimming hole. Lovely fresh breakfast tray delivered with a smile. Great set up for self-catering but great restaurants (Boat Shed Cafe for dinner and Koru Café for lunch) within walking distance and a shop for provisions down the road toward the airport. Great to have use of kayaks, paddleboards and snorkeling gear. The room is spacious and well appointed with a comfortable bed for sweet dreams. Brief overview from our experiences the past 3 years – we love Aitutaki, people and water activities on the lagoon. • Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort – only stay in one of the over-the-water bungalows though they are expensive yet same price as Pacific Resort. • Tamanu Beach – best full service resort with warm hospitality, great food (many diners come over from Pacific Resort) and convenience. • Pacific Resort – overpriced and rooms are too dark, we prefer more natural light in a room. The common areas always seem to be too close because we prefer more privacy.

Oh wow, Tai Roto. What a perfect little slice of paradise. Everything you want in a bundled/secluded part of the island. The rooms are in tip top condition, the owners/staff are incredibly nice to talk to as well. We took the free to use SUPs out to the middle of the lagoon and had turtles all around us:) Breakfast is 10/10 too.

Wow we were very happy from start to finish, my partner myself and our grandfather stayed at Tai Roto Aitutaki for 5 days. Poni picked us up from the airport complementary transfers to and from. Greeted us with beautiful leis apon arrival Yes we had arrived, just a short trip to our hut/ villa Beach front location, we were very happy with what we had. All the little touches made the difference to our stay. A fully equipped kitchenette with salt pepper, oil, tea coffee, sugar, milk and even mixes for our drinks made such a difference. This place is wonderful location for relaxation but they also have stand up paddle boards, snorkle gear, bikes, and kayaks avaliable for you to use The staff are very friendly and go the extra mile to make you feel welcomed , delightful to come home to replenished amenities a clean floor, fresh towels and rubbish taken just to name a few things they do. This is the place if you want to stay somewhere nice but still have the flexibility to do your own thing. Can't Rave enough about it. One more thing was the continental breakfast daily. We enjoyed the fresh papaya, local fruits every morning. Thankyou to everyone at Tai Roto Aitutaki 💜

Awwwww inthemovies love seeing your smiling faces outside your Absolute Beachfront balcony in the awesome photos you have posted!. Thank you, thank you for your wonderful comments regarding your stay with us!. It really pleases us to hear and see the pure enjoyment you received during your holiday in Aitutaki!. That breathtaking sunset you captured from your villa is like a dream!. Except, this was your reality! What a blessing!. Being self catering and having those extras items available in the kitchen for you, means you spend less time shopping for provisions and more time spent at the beach for reading, swimming and simply relaxing..(The important stuff that really matters). Happy to know our senior in house Puna maintained your villa for you with clean floors, fresh towels and your mini bar topped up by Poni for your drinks to enjoy-Wohooo! . Can't forget about breakfast, the fresh papaya and local fruits you enjoyed, we will let our local growers know how yummy it was for you! We love providing organic, local fruits from tree branch to your breakfast basket:). Thank you so much for visiting us and it was so delightful to host you here at Tai Roto Bay!.. Take care and we cant wait to see you again!- Meitaki- Cheran
