Great villas all distanced from each other with fab views. Well appointed and maintained. Aircon of course.

All made so perfect by the wonderful management team of Jane & Steve and their very friendly and attentive staff.

Very near good restaurants nearby and dining on site Mondays & Wednesday.

There is an honesty bar poolside with a good range of beers, liquor & wines.

WiFi and electric scooters available.

Room tip: You can be literally on the beach or poolside but all have great views.

This was our second stay at Etu Moana. We have stayed at several other nice accommodations in Aitutaki, but Etu Moana reigns supreme!
We were greeted warmly and treated with genuine kindness and hospitality during both visits. The management and staff are fantastic.
The grounds of the property are gorgeous, and the spacious villas are casually elegant, truly comfortable, and immaculate. So many thoughtful extras too…
Their exquisite location on the lagoon is perfect for a snorkel, or take advantage of their kayaks and stand up paddle-boards. We also loved the poolside honor bar and delicious island breakfast.
Simply put, Etu Moana is that dreamy paradise you’ve been looking for. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Thank you so much for your support, Etu Moana is in my heart the very best, but we are slightly bias...

When our wonderful guests take their time to write such glowing reviews, it certainly is beneficial, especially as getting to Aitutaki is another flight to everyone's vacation budget. Ensuring that the experience is totally memorable from all deliverables is most important to our team.

Have you booked for next year?

Top Place. Really great villas, especially number 1 on the beach. Staff send owners were fantastic. Honesty bar is a great way to operate a bar. Pool is small but you don't need as the sea is perfect.One thing, I would recommend scooter hire, the resort does provide perfectly fine bikes but on hot days they are not suitable - the resort will organise a scooter but probably best to prebook. Will be back.

Room tip: Pre- book a scooter

Kia orana,
Thank you so much for your review, the lagoon is so perfect and most enjoyable.
Thank you also for your recommendation on hiring a scooter, which is such a benefit for taking a tour around beautiful Aitutaki.
Etu Moana does have it's own E-Scooters for our guests to utilize during their stay, at a minimal charge, these have been enjoyed by many of our guests, did you not get a chance to experience them during your stay.
On your next visit, we will definitely make this happen!

We arrived at Etu Moana very soon after the bubble opened and it was wonderful. The villas are lovely, each with a very funky bathroom, plus an outside shower, well equipped kitchen and have a traditionally thatched roof. We were in a garden villa for a few nights and then one right on the beachfront. It was so relaxing reading on the outside deck and watching the waves breaking on the reef. A lot of work had gone in to making the gardens extremely pretty. The staff were lovely and welcoming and looked gorgeous in their blue resort dresses. Jane went out of her way to enable you to do whatever you wanted to - even coming to pick us up when we were climbing Maungapu so we wouldn't be late going out of the resort for dinner! The best part of the breakfasts were the beautiful fruits, freshly baked breads and homemade preserves. We enjoyed fish and chips and bbq nights at the resort and had pizza and salad delivered to our room one night. I rode one of the E-scooters - after never having ridden one before - and they were super fun and easy to master. We had some wild weather while we were there but enjoyed swimming in the pool in the rain and resting up while watching the elements. So a fantastic trip and I would definitely recommend Etu Moana and visit again.

Room tip: Beachfront if possible but all villas have the same layout and the garden ones are probably more private

Kia orana
Thank you so much:)
Boutique resorts are always 'about you' our wonderful guests' I feel we are here simply to create memorable experiences for you to enjoy and share.
It did make me chuckle when you eventually rode our E-Scooters, mastering the art of having maximum fun is such a challenge worth conquering...
Thank you for the detail, I'm sure your review will be so helpful to our guests, especially now that the Cook Islands are opening up to the 'Rest of The World'
Have a wonderful year ahead, we do hope to see you both back in 'our little paradise' one day soon
