The warm and beautiful greeting we received from Tiffany and Jeff the moment we stepped from our transfer from the airport into the reception lounge is something we will never forget. We were made to feel as though we were truly VIP's and had arrived in a very special place. Sipping on fresh coconuts as Tiffany welcomed us, Jeff whisked our bags from our transport to our beachfront villa. It all seemed so surreal.
After our relaxing welcome, Tiffany led us through the beautiful landscaped gardens, past the pool to our villa and what can only be described as breathtaking views of the lagoon.
Our hosts explained that they had only taken over management 8 weeks prior and their warmth and enthusiasm will ensure that Etu Moana is a bucket list destination.
Breakfast served by the pool daily by the friendly staff was a hit, as were the themed dinner nights.
I had also informed Tiffany prior to arriving that I'd planned a secret wedding proposal during our stay and she was super excited to help in any way. Tiffany offered suggestions and with her local knowledge booked us private lagoon cruise (which is a must for any visit to Aitutaki) and had Prosecco on ice when we returned from our perfect morning.
Etu Moana has truly embraced an Eco ethos and has invested in electric golf carts and scooters for guest use around the island while reducing the carbon footprint on the beautiful environment and surroundings.
Unfortunately, our timing in Aitutaki weather wise meant that we didn't get to fully experience the island at it's best but that didn't deter us from having the time of our lives. It just made us keen to come back again !
That you again for your super hospitality and keep doing what you do so well.

Room tip: Bring your own snorkel gear and Lagoon cruises are a must.

We had regular and clear communication prior to our visit, and the in-person service from Jeff and Tiffany was superb - from airport pickup, to arrival, to making bookings for us. And the rest of the staff at breakfast and room-cleaning were also very friendly. Having the electric cart and bikes to tour the island was also great.

We spent 6 days at Etu Moana and had the feeling to be in Paradise. Lovely quiet place, beautiful beach and garden, only 8 villas, nice breakfast. 3 times a week they offer nicely prepared dinner. The staff was very friendly. The hosts Tiffany and Jeff were very helpful and made our stay so enjoyable. Highly recommended place if you want to relax! Nice balinese massage at the resort. For activities ask Tiffany, she will provide you with information and do the booking for you. The lagoon cruise booked by Tiffany was awesome. Beautiful sunsets from this place!

Excellent stay - the best of for islands. E had 2 bungslows. Jeff & Tiffany are great/real hosts.
Beautiful setting, incredibly good food (huuuuge portions on the bare-feet dinner), all fresh... could use the buggy all the time... only 3 nights, Could have easily stayed some more...much better than bora bora from an Island perspective...

Kia Orana Thomas,

We could not agree more! Etu Moana ,and Aitutaki as a whole, offer a truly unique, less-trafficked experience . We are so happy you and your group enjoyed your time celebrating and filling each day with all that our piece of paradise has to offer! We hope to welcome you again in the future.
