The owner Mark, put so much effort into making our stay stress free, from picking us up at the airport, arranging scooter hire, giving daily weather and tide reports, ringing to book us in for a snorkelling trip. The accommodation was just what we wanted, right on Amuri Beach and 200 metres from the deep,swimming hole, clean and roomy and... More

Amuri Sands is an excellent place to stay in Atutaki. It is on the beach, which is great for swimming and snorkelling. Mark, our host, was most helpful. He picked us up from the airport, organised scooter hire and lagoon cruises. The room had a queen bed, cooking facilities, fridge and shower. It was clean and roomy. It is good... More

Thanks Mark for making our stay such a pleasure. The best sunsets from the deck! Good clean accomodation and Mark will go out of his way to organise car rentals, boat hire and restaurant advice.You were right Mark, Puffys has the best fish n chips!

Nothing to say except all around amazing deal we got. Extremely good price, great location, Mark was a legend, and the unit was everything you needed. The gardens outside were immaculate, you feel very isolated with dense bush on both sides. I actually would rather keep this place a secret for myself! No TV (why would you need it here)... More

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
