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...

What a perfect getaway to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary! Arriving at Aitutaki Escape, we stayed in the 2 bedroom Villa for 6 nights. So much room in this amazing Villa for the two of us, with pool in the front courtyard and hot tub on the back deck overlooking the Lagoon where we watched some incredible sunsets. The comfort...

Wow! Perfect in every way. My husband and I enjoyed our stay here so much we are already talking about returning. We rarely go back to the same place in effort to see more of the world but Aitutaki is wonderful and staying at Aitutaki Escape just makes it even more special. We stayed in Villa #2, a one bedroom... More

You do not get better, more friendly service then what you will get here! Beautiful, luxury, rooms looking straight out on the beach. Staff were more then happy to assist us with anything that we needed, whether that was a reservation for dinner or advice on what we should do. Simply fantastic.

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...
