Absolute paradise couldn't recommend more highly
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Oct 2023
We recently had the most glorious 5 nights at Etu Moana in a Beach View villa - it was beyond our expectations in every way. The location, the view and proximity to the lagoon and beach, our beautiful bure with a lovely spacious deck to sit out on. Hosts Tiffany and Jeff were so welcoming and helpful and have excellent suggestions on places to eat and things to do. Having access to the electric golf buggy or scooters an added bonus. A delicious breakfast pool side every morning, lovely friendly staff. It's a private, tranquil piece of paradise. I also had an amazing spa treatment based on site, lots of choice re massages and treatments.

    If you are looking for elegance, a sense of intimacy, attention to detail, glorious views of the lagoon, then look no further. Staff are outstanding and are focused on making your experience full of wonderful memories. From the minute you are collected from the airport, the pampering does not stop. Breakfast is provided every day with meals offered on certain nights as well. However, we took advantage of the golf carts that allowed us very easy access to the two closest resorts nearby. An amazingly outstanding experience!

    Visiting Aitutaki has been on our bucket list for awhile now, so finally getting there was fantastic! From the moment we were greeted at the airport by Tiffany and Jeff to our farewell, everything was superb. The setting was beautiful, the gardens lush and well manicured, the villa wonderfully spacious and private, the lagoon and pool area amazing and all the staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly. We had a very enjoyable few days, loved the peace and quiet, and would have loved to have stayed longer, maybe next time.
    p.s. having use of the bikes, e-scooters and buggy was just the icing on the cake!! Thank you Tiffany and Jeff.

    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.
