We stayed at Aitutaki lagoon resort and spa mid May and enjoyed everything. The management and front office staff were happy to attend our requests. Special thanks to Maki Arere at front office, her supervisor Ake Tuakeu and especially to Duty Manager Kristin Makirere. Their friendliness and desire to help made our stay at the resort very enjoyable. We paid... More

It is the location that gives this resort a competitive edge. You're in the lagoon that only few people can reach. You can go snorkelling, kayaking, SUP-boarding and easily get to smaller islands and make a day trip out of it if you pack lunch with you. The lagoon is full of beautiful coral teeming with fish. The bungalows are... More

We have stayed twice. It is winter here now so I'm thinking of the tropics again, funny how we can forget the disappointment of a stay over time. The beach restaurant was very poor, what may have started out as fresh bounty was murdered by over cooking. I notice that the manager requests guests approach her if there are issues,... More

The one thing that really makes this place the best in Aitutaki is the location. You can kayak from the front of your bure out to isolated islands in a very short time. We stayed in a beachfront bure not an overwater one. I couldn't decide between here or Pacific Resort but after going there for dinner one night and... More

We spent a week at this amazing resort on honeymoon and loved every minute! We stayed in both beachfront and overwater bungalows and would highly recommend the overwater bungalows if you can afford, but the others are just as great. Staff were lovely and the private candlelight dinner on the beach is a must! This place is like heaven on... More

Kia Orana Les Thank you for taking the time to post your review. The over-water bungalows on our private island resort are our most popular bungalows and the only over-water bungalows in the Cook Islands. The private candlelit dinner on the beach with a personal waiter is one of the highlights of many of our guests stay with us. We... More

this is a great place, the water is the most beautiful we have ever seen. The resort is spectacular and amenities are fantastic. We stayed in a deluxe beachfront villa and the view and unit were amazing. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The one thing that spoilt the trip was the shuttle ride. The resort is at the...

Truly the most spectacular lagoon we have ever seen. The resort was 5 star in every respect. We arrived to a local chant as we entered the resort off of a short ferry boat ride to get to the private island the resort is located on. Check in service was perfect and we were escorted to our over water bungalow... More
