Staying at Etu Moana was a breathtaking experience to end our Cook Islands holiday.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Aug 2023
What a 'wonderful' place to stay.
The electric cart pick and drop off had an awesome character to the whole experience.
Hospitality could not be faulted and the room was perfect.
Not having full restaurant facilities was not an issue as plenty of options close by to experience which most visitors would do anyway.
Definitely we will be going back there for our next visit to Aitutaki.

    This is a wonderful place to stay, it quiet & it really is a boutique hotel. There are only 8 rooms that are well appointed & very comfortable. Tiffany was very helpful with getting us a rental car for a day. She was also helpful with places to eat & things to do. Highly recommend a stay here as it has an amazing beach & great snorkeling.

    Etu Moana is a wonderful place to stay in the beautiful island of Aitutaki. From the first greetings of Jeff and Tiffany, everything is done perfectly to ensure a relaxing stay and nothing is too much trouble. The villas are all perfectly situated so even the non sea front units get views of the lagoon. The rooms are a great size and have everything you need. The staff are so friendly from the lovely breakfasts poolside to the gardeners. Great beach toys and loungers and we loved the e-scooters. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Words can't always explain Paradise. Etu Moana is just that. My wife and I arrived to the most spectacular vision and most comfortable villa. The atmosphere is tranquil. We met like minded guests at the self service luxury pool and bar. Once you have arrived you will never want to leave. Sadly we are back into the throws of work back in Australia. We will be back to Etu Moana and Aitutaki. Thanks Tiffany and Jeff and all your remarkable team.

    From the moment we arrived at the airport Etu Moana had our transfer arranged and our welcome drinks were served as soon as we stepped out of the Taxi. Tiffany and Jeff gave us a kind and friendly welcome, and Jeff had our bags in the villas very promptly. Our villa was amazing, lovely pool, great local beer and the sunset was spectacular. Breakfast was also fantastic. Tiffany and Jeff couldn’t have been more helpful during our stay. The only negative is that we only booked 3 nights, need at least 5, but that’s our fault. Thanks again for a 5 star stay. Sharon & Col
