Dreamy

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Jun 2023
Heaven on earth! Picked up personally by Jeff and delivered to Tiffany who was waiting for us with a refreshingly cold hand towel and coconut drinks. Our bags were whisked into our villa and we were shown around the grounds learning that the canoe/paddle board/flippers and life jackets were ready for our use. Moving off the groomed white sand beach past the sun loungers we were shown the pool area where breakfast was served (dinner too) and the honesty bar could be accessed anytime so we could recreate some of our favourite cocktails. We made full use of the electric buggy and motorbikes to get around. However the best of all was the beautiful calm and relaxing villa, super comfy bed and my fav the gorgeous bathroom. Our only regret was the short stay and are already looking at next years dates to return for a much longer stay.
ALL of the staff were beautiful people happy to help and advise us on their hotspots to visit whilst on the island. To all of you, thank you :)

    We stayed at Etu Moana for 10 nights. Our stay was truly magical and by far best time of our lives. Hosts Tiffany and Jeff are exceptional and ensured our stay was perfect. All staff were amazing and so kind. Rooms are 100%. We stayed in villa 1 which had best views I'd ever had. Room was perfectly cleaned daily and was equiped with everything you need.

    We got married at one foot whilst staying at Etu Moana, the wedding planning, support and relaxed atmosphere was exceptional. A meal was also arranged which was fantastic touch for our wedding celebrations to continue.

    I would recommend everyone should visit Etu Moana in there lifetime, its an extremely exceptional experience, from location, hospitality. Everyone we met at this boutique wished they had booked more days.

    Electic buggys and scooters are provided FOC, which was fantastic, everday we would nip.out on buggy, for lunch or popping to shops. Brilliant idea.

    Aitutaki is the most beautiful island on this planet, crystal clear sea, lagoons.

    A must return to Etu Moana.

    Thankyou for our amazing stay.

    Highly recommended accommodation in Aitutaki ..
    We stayed there for 4 days . From the beginning we were welcomed by Tiffany and Jeff .
    Their friendliness and professionalism shone through on our stay . Always a friendly smile and greeting . They went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience. We were able to use the buggy to scoot around the island which was a bonus!
    The kitchen staff and room attendants were also very kind and friendly. Food was of the highest standard and rooms were kept pristine at all times !
    If you are looking for a personalized friendly professional experience Etu Moana is the best you will get !
    Thank you so much for having us and for your caring support and customer service! Hope to return one day soon .

    Lovely new friendly, welcoming and informative managers, large comfortable well-equipped Are (room), great staff, delicious breakfasts...and loved the free use of the brand new golf carts (as well as bicycles and scooters) to get around the island. A great play to stay, highly recommended.

    Tiffany and Jeff were fantastic hosts who went above and beyond to personalize our experience. Etu Moana is beautifully situated and well resourced to support a couple exploring the island or just enjoying the beach and lagoon out front. Paddle boards were great, the pool is immaculate, staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Stunning location for a peaceful and low-key couple of days away. Thank you T&J, it has been wonderful to meet you and visit Etu Moana. Ka kite!
