We had the best of times at Amuri Sands. Mark and Poppy are super friendly and let us know all we needed about the island. We stayed during Christmas, and it was just perfect for us. This little gem is just like in the pictures, only the garden is more lush with flowers and bushes. I picked passion fruit of... More

First off, Aitutaki is, in our opinion, a must-do option if you happen to be in the Cook Islands. Absolutely beautiful. Peaceful. The options are expensive (700+/nt; includes air con, paddle-boards/kayaks, snorkel gear, limited wifi, better-appointed rooms) and then budget (150ish). Amuri Sands falls in the latter category, and does a perfect job of it. The place is clean, works... More

Just arrived home after a wonderful 4 day stay at Amuri Sands. Beautiful beach front view, great value and very comfortable, could not have wanted anything more. Poppy is lovely and very much added to the enjoyment of our stay with her daily visits laden with fresh fruit and always helpful advice. As Oregon Duck fans, were were so hoping... More

I have to echo what has been said by everyone else on this site. Amuri Sands is excellent value. I spent three nights there in mid-November. Poppy picked me up at the airport and stopped at the local supermarket to allow me to get the basics. There were fresh-picked papayas and passion fruit awaiting me in the room. Poppy was... More

From the moment we were met at the airport by Poppy we knew we were in for a treat. Aitutaki is stunning and Amuri Sands provides excellent, clean, well-priced accomodation. But the real highlight of our stay was Poppy herself. It was like staying with a favourite aunty, one who brought us fresh fruit every day and even baked us... More

Absolutely beach front with a stunning outlook over the lagoon. Set in a lovely garden, is a very tidy and comfortable bungalow. Mark the owner was very helpful and friendly. Very quiet and private, would totally recommend this fantastic accommodation

First of all, I have to say that Mark is an awesome host. Greeting and pick-up at the airport, setting up scooter rental, snorkel tours, water taxi, where to eat, etc. He was around to answer questions, without being intrusive at all. He takes great care with the landscaping and the accommodations are very clean and well enough equipped for... More

We arrived to be greeted by Mark, who gave us both a beautiful neck ei and a free ride to the accommodation, pointing out various locations on the island and giving us tips on what to do, where to eat etc for the next week. On arriving at the cabins the area was very well kept, functional and tidy cabins... More

I recently spent 9 nights at Amuri Sands with 3 friends. We found the accommodation simple, clean and well equipped. The units are set back from the main road and are very private. The view from the deck is something else and the surrounding gardens and beach in front of the units are kept in an immaculate condition. Mark, the... More
