This place is amazing and worth paying the extra $$. Vane and Lily have thought of everything. We are well traveled and we know what we like ... we like Escape and we will surely be back. The one-bed villas are extremely spacious. Everything is awesome and I have nothing to suggest as an improvement. We have stayed for 5... More

We arrived here after a few days in Muri, and were welcomed warmly by Lily and Vane, who then continued to make our stay relaxed, enjoyable and special. There are plans to expand, it seems, but at present the three villa units are special for being so quiet and private. (Well, quiet is a relative term and assumes that you... More

So private! we loved the luxury of having our own pool and hot pool completely hidden from the outside world. fully self-contained, absolute beach-front, friendly hosts, beautiful breakfasts delivered to our door. this was a real treat for two weary travellers on our way home from a work trip in the USA.

Aitutaki Escape was amazing. The entire staff were so welcoming and accommodating with everything we needed. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was the best it could be. The one bedroom Villa was outstanding with its own personal spa, pool and deck with beach access. The villa itself was beautifully designed and extremely comfortable with everything... More

The villas are beautiful and spacious and the location right on the beach cannot be beat. But, what makes this place truly special are the people. Everyone working there was so friendly, and the owners, Lily and Vane, treated us like family. Vane even invited us to go paddling with his canoe club! Lily and Vane know everybody on Aitutaki...
