We were very fortunate to spend 4 nights at the beautiful Etu Moana. It’s exactly as the pictures suggest. International management and local staff have the 8 villa complex looking immaculate and running in perfect order. There’s a friendly feel about the place; everyone is enjoying themselves and we felt very cared for. World class. This is certainly the star of Aitutaki.

Meitaki Anna, It was such a pleasure for the team to welcome you to Aitutaki and especially Etu Moana, how lovely to enjoy our Boutique resort in this little paradise all to yourselves... Here's to returning to New Zealand, eventually and passing on the Cook Islands Feel Good Factor to your circle of family and friends. All the very best, Jane

What a great place to stay! We were there when NZ was in lockdown so we were the only guests most of the time! The resort GM, Jane went out of her way to meet all our needs, including personally prepared roast chicken dinner and fish and chip nights! Eturangi brought a beautiful breakfast of fruit, cereals, toast and boiled eggs every morning, that we ate while watching the herons (and cat) fishing for their breakfast. We had sunset dinner on the beach and Jane booked whale watching, snorkelling and massages as we requested. With the honesty bar by the pool it felt like we were in our own luxury villa in paradise. Thanks to Jane, Steve, and all their support staff for making our stay so memorable! Terry & Roseanne

Kia Orana Terry & Roseanne, Thank you for your wonderful review, the pleasure of ensuring your experience in Paradise @etumoana was a memorable one was absolutely enjoyable for us all! You both got out there and very quickly made Aitutaki your own, making the most of what this beautiful Island and the community had to offer. From the schoolchildren to the all the businesses you frequented, I feel you will be remembered for a while to come, THANK YOU! Please do visit again, if you want another experience of Paradise Jane

This small upmarket, adults-only resort is ideal for those seeking a peaceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle and want to enjoy a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere in style. We spent a week on the island and rented two beach front bungalows that had uninterrupted views of the beautiful lagoon. The water temperature was relatively warm due to the shallow depths and we were rewarded with the company of a wide variety of small reef fish, beautiful clams and colourful patches of recovering coral. The ultimate snorkeling experience was Honeymoon Island in the southern part of the lagoon. There are a number of tour operators. We chose T(h)e King and had a fantastic time. Friendly staff and beautiful smiles are the norm for the Cook Islands and this was even more so at Etu Moana. Jane, the manager, was highly attentive to all guests' needs and we couldn't have asked for anything more. A relatively simple breakfast is served in a beautiful garden and pool setting. Food supplies and restaurant options on the island are limited but we think this is a small price to pay for being on this idylic and stunningly beautiful tropical island and staying in luxury at the Etu Moana. Meitaki.

Kia Orana, Thank you for writing this informative review, I trust it adds a small insight on how beautiful Aitutaki is and very much worth that 'Hop-over' flight from Rarotonga. Our aim @etumoana is to delight all the senses, what better place to achieve this? Celebrating with friends beside one of the worlds most stunning lagoons whilst enjoying all natures pleasures from your deck! I would just like to add, thank you for the laughs we got to share, I did look forward to my afternoon visit, if only to vicariously partake in your daily adventures. Enjoy Europe, it would be wonderful to connect with you all again, on your next trip to our little paradise, Stay happy, meitaki, Jane

We had a beach side villa which was well appointed and the view was amazing. Loved Jane's positive vibe, she was so helpful organising what we wanted so not a moment was wasted. Our only downside was that we didn't want to leave
