Akaiami Paradise is, in our opinion, not just the most beautiful, but also the most exclusive place to stay in Aitutaki. Located on a remote motu in the lagoon, Akaiami is the site where the coral route flights had a short stopover in the 1950s. The Marsters family has rebuilt the lodge on the site of the coral route terminal,... More

After our 4-day stay at Akaiami Paradise, my heart ached at the thought of leaving. I wish we could have skipped the Pacific Resort in Raro and spend another week at Akaiami instead. If you're the Four Seasons type who travel to wallow in luxury, then this place is not for you. But if you detest group tours, if you... More

We stayed on AP for 3 nights from 11 September 2012. From the moment that owner Mama Ru Ru picked us up from Aitutaki Beach Villas - welcoming us with beautiful fresh gardenia laes from her own lush garden we were in heaven. Sydney, a wonderful host and son to Mama, piloted the family boat over to one of the... More

We were at the Akaimi Lodge for one week as part of our honeymoon in 2006. I will not write a long review because it isn't necessary. The place is absolutely fantastic! We were on our own for three days, only in the company of the inconspicuous Pare (the Island's keeper), and sporadic visits from his son sidney. They were... More

Ok, I've been to Aitutaki SEVEN TIMES, so I know a bit about the place! Akaiami Paradise is absolutely unique. It is situated on the breathtakingly beautiful Akaiami motu (island), and is a 5 minute boat ride from the mainland across the amazing Aitutaki lagoon. I am literally going to struggle to describe it's beauty, so I'll try and sum... More

Aikaimi is a little motu in the Aitutaki Lagoon, Cook Islands. It is a paradise. The beach is spectacular and the water is a still, warm bath with a friendly resident puffer fish who comes to visit from time to time. The accommodation is rustic and comprises a large lodge (on the site of the former TEAL Lodge), which has... More
