I loved this place! It's small, quiet and only provides breakfast. Two evenings a week you have the option to eat in - one night is fish and chips - which were delicious, and the second night was a choice of local dishes.

It's within walking distance of a dew restaurants and it's easy to get a taxi to others, as long as you order in advance.

Breakfast was simple and tasty and they have a honesty bar which is extensive - I was pleasantly surprised with the range.

You can only get wifi in the reception/lobby area unless you pay extra. this worked for me and encourages you to digitally detox!

Close to the airport and marina

Room tip: Make sure you take bug spray! Fins are available for snorkelling and you have to buy your mask. Kayaks reef shoes were available.

Kia Orana,

Thank you for your lovely review! We are so happy you enjoyed the quiet serenity and ease of Etu Moana. The ability to choose between our varied in-house dining delights or taking a stroll to local restuarants is a great way to experience even more of what Aitutaki has to offer. How wonderful that you took some time to digitally detox and take in our beautiful surrounds! We are glad you loved it and we would love to welcome you back some day!

From the moment we were greeted by managers Tiffany and Jeff at the airport, we felt relaxed and welcomed at Etu Moana. The location is stunning and the facilities are excellent. We enjoyed SUPing and canoeing in the lagoon, as well as chatting to other guests on the beach while having drinks and watching the magical sunsets. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Speaking to other regular Aitutaki visitors who knew the other accommodation options, I was told this was one of the best places to stay on the island. Breakfasts are provided every day and were of good quality. We chose not to use the self catering option but the kitchen had enough equipment to allow that if needed. We also chose to rent our own scooters but there are electric scooters available at Etu Moana for guest use. A car or scooter is necessary in Aitutaki if you want to get out and about on the island. We would happily recommend Etu Moana for anyone looking for a boutique and personal place to stay on Aitutaki.

Room tip: Best to ask about lunch and dinner options ahead of time. The island has limited options on different nights and bookings are essential.

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.
