What a great place to stay, stayed in a Deluxe Beach-side Bungalow - had everything you needed. Fantastic outdoor shower, Deck by the lagoon, loungers and other things. Location was fantastic, food was great, staff were friendly and efficient.

Resort is right on the lagoon. View is spectacular. Really enjoyed the time here and met some lovely people. Room was nice and all rooms look out to some water but beachfront is the best looking at that amazing lagoon. Resort is starting to look a bit tired and they do not use that front bar over lagoon enough. I... More

Amazing place from the minute we crossed to the resort on the little ferry, to departing 3 days later. The scenery was stunning, the lunch and dinners delicious, staff were friendly, the room was clean and beautifully done, flowers decorated the room and we loved the outdoor shower. We were given a complimentary late check out which was really appreciated.... More

We rocked up to the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort Spa after spending 4 days in Rarotonga and were just gob smacked. We were welcomed by the staff and management, they were very professional and friendly at the same time. The rooms were luxurious, and had beautiful flowers all thru the room, and had an outside shower. The beachfront location was just... More

This place is spectacular and so surreal. The sand bars are incredible and vast. This is such an amazing place, everyone was impressively nice and helpful. Even the conch guy who welcomed us to the island by blowing the conch shell. Food was delicious. Our room was very comfortable and quaint. Love the outdoor shower, it's out first time experiencing...

We just returned from a relaxing week in the Cooks Island. We have been to all the South Pacific nations and now understand the allure of the Cooks with spectacular scenery and delicious fresh food from the sea and land. The snorkelling was brilliant, just as we stepped out our door at both properties we stayed, The Sanctuary Resort (room... More

My husband and I arrived on Aitutaki on Sat Feb 28/2015. I think it was the 11:00am flight out. Air Raro flight took 45 minutes and was quick and comfortable. It was getting cloudy so did not get a good view of the lagoon from the air. When we landed we went into the small open air terminal and went... More

I was a little worried about booking the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa due to a few not so good reviews, however we were very pleasantly surprised by our stay. The resort definitely has the most picturesque location on the island, and the lagoon took our breath away. We stayed in an overwater bungalow, and being able to wake up... More
