My wife and I visited Aitutaki for a few weeks in February for our honeymoon and we stayed in two properties on the island, the second half of our stay was in one of the villas at Aitutaki Escape. We stayed in villa 3, one of the two 1 bedroom villas on the property - there is also a 2... More

It is not too often that I am compelled to write my expressions toward a product or service, (unless it has moved me deeply), and in this case, I wish to sing my praises for my recent experience... My wife Adelie and I have returned from the holiday of a lifetime. It was only weeks before arriving in the Cook... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and also got married on the beach in front of our villa. Our wedding was arranged by Aitutaki Escape and the whole experience was tremendous. It was a gorgeous setting under a coconut tree, with flower petals scattered along the sand, a beautifully decorated arch and (thanks Vane!) the brilliant recommendation to have live... More

After visiting the Cook Islands earlier this year (2014), and loving Rarotonga, we decided to go back again, but this time spending half of our time on Aitutaki. We stayed at Aitutaki Escape, which is located right on the beachfront. The villas were fantastic, with a fully fitted kitchen, private swimming pool and spa. Vane, the owner, looked after us...

This is a lovely secluded place if you're looking for a romantic getaway. We stayed on our honeymoon, and it was perfect. Each villa (of only 3) has a private pool, as well as your own jetty & access to the lagoon beach, kayaks included. Staff are lovely. Airport transfers all included, and they will organise just about anything else... More

Stayed there for the second time a couple of weeks ago with my fiance and we absolutely love the place. Aitutaki Escape has every thing you need for a romantic getaway. I also can't imagine going to the Cook Islands without spending time on Aitutaki and spending a day out on the Lagoon or as I call it the Worlds... More

We stayed here from November 1 2014 for our honeymoon and all we can say is WOW. Fantastic accommodation, fantastic service and fantastic people. It is Paradise here and you cannot go wrong if you stay here when you go to Aitutaki. The Villa itself is the best on the island with a gorgeous view and luxurious interior with a... More

My wife and I will never forget our 4 night stay at Escape, and of course the amazingly beautiful island of Aitutake. We are well travelled, but this experience stands out as one of those lifetime events that only occur rarely and unexpectedly. Dion (Vane was away) and the crew deserve special mention for going the extra mile for us... More

I really wanted to stay here but it was outside our budget this time around. I called in to see if we could view the property. Theresa was so friendly and very kindly showed us around and made us feel very welcome. We were shown the two bedroom villa which was incredible - very luxurious and private. We definitely plan...

Aitutaki is stunning no matter where you are on the lagoon or on the beach, but Aitutaki Escape is a cut above: by far the best way to experience a special holiday with luxury, space, a sense of privacy, everything you need at your fingertips - and that amazing feeling of having your own personal lagoon to explore on your...
