Our 200sqm polynesean style Villa, one of only three, was waiting for us with own pool, huge separate living room with large flat screen for DVD (available for free; no TV, no mobile roaming and no broad-band internet on this island), designer furniture, long runway to the private beach and two kajaks. No other hotels or homes nearby - absolutely... More

We stayed at Aitutaki Escape in Villa 2 for 5 nights end of May. The highlight was our private pool area where we spent a great deal of time. The villa was beautiful, especially the water wall and the glass enclosed bathroom and shower. The gardens were absolutely stunning. Vane was great. He sorted us out with a private boat... More

We stayed 4 nights at Aitutaki Escape and were absolutely blown away by the impeccably high standard of the villa as well as the service from Vane and the team.

I would say Vane (on site manager) is part of the reason why Aitutaki Escape has so many good reviews. He is Aitutakian and genuine person. I have been to many luxury resorts in the South Pacific and other countries and have never met anyone like him. The villas are very nicely maintained. When you arrive here you immediately feel...

We stayed 4 nights at Aitutaki Escape for our honeymoon and WOW what an unforgettable stay. Our villa was so spacious, private, clean and comfy. We swam in the pool every day after spending most of the day swimming in the lagoon and laying around on the deck. Breakfast was delivered each day and the fresh watermelon and pawpaw was... More

My wife and I stayed at Aitutaki Escape for 3 nights following a similar stay in Rarotonga. What an unforgettable experience. But where to begin to describe it? Vane is an incredibly thoughtful, genuine and personable host who made us feel welcome immediately. He is thoroughly dedicated to making his guests feel at home and totally catered for. The villa...

All the glowing reports you read about Aitutaki Escape and Vane are true. We visited for 4 nights in April. This was our second time in Aitutaki but first at Escape. We are a middle aged couple with no kids, who like our privacy. We have high expectations with regard to luxury/quality accommodation, preferably with own pool, and customer focused... More

Initially I looked at a couple of the "luxury" resorts on Aitutaki for a short stopover during our longer stay at Rarotonga but so pleased I overcame the brochure hype and carefully framed photos (as well as the lack of apparent availability on accomodation search sites) to settle here. Only regret was that we did not spend more time at... More
