This really is paradise. We stayed in a beach bungalow for our honeymoon. From the moment you are greeted at the boat you know you are in for something special. This resort is located on the most beautiful part of Aitutaki. There is so much to do if you can tear yourself away from the amazing views. Nothing is a... More

From the moment you arrive and have to jump on a boat to access the resort you know you have found somewhere special. The over water bungalow was outstanding. If you can't relax to the sounds of water lapping under your room or the views out over your balcony you are too hard to please. The outdoor shower was a... More

We recently stayed in one of the Overwater Bungalows during our honeymoon. We had a fantastic time here and I would thoroughly recommend the resort. The island is beautiful and feels still quite natural as there are actually only a handful of bungalows. The views of the turquoise lagoon and the neighboring islands from the overwater balcony are stunning. The... More
