The service from the staff was above and beyond anything I could imagine. That combined with a million dollar view of the lagoon from out veranda made for a perfectly relaxing vacation. The complimentary breakfast there offered more than just fruit and cereal.

The Tamanu Beach was an great place to spend our first trip to Aitutaki. The bungalow's porch, with relaxing views of Aitutaki's western lagoon and reef, welcomed us as nicely as the staff had. The porch was a great place to nap between activities and meals. The short walk to the beach added to our experience. The bungalow was large... More

We spent Christmas at Tamanu Beach. Beautiful location,accommodations and helpful staff. As a part of our package we received a 2 hour giant clam snorkel; don't miss this! Fabulous! This trip was part of a Costco package. It was well organized with nonstop air travel and transfers. There were a few complementary meals also. Wonderful!

We had the opportunity to stay at this magical place over the Christmas period. We stayed in the older part (it is in 2 sections) in the Beachfront unit - 112. All we can say is WOW! Ok, the room isn't 5 star, but on Aitutaki you don't want that. You want a beautiful bungalow on the beach that you... More

My wife, a friend and I stayed for two nights and had a great experience. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the accommodation is very tidy and clean, and the restaurant, beach and swimming pools are all top quality. We all started our day with a complementary breakfast containing an assortment of delicious fresh fruit, cereals and pastries. The... More

Tamanu Beach was a very special place with a gorgeous white sand beah, lovely restaurant, and the perfect place to unwind. The unit was very clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The restaurant was also very good. The best place to stay while you enjoy this special island.

This was a great place to stay and relax. Our cottage was very nice, the restaurant on site was very good, the beach was great and a great spot to swim and snorkel, we also had free use of kayaks. It was really relaxing and the staff was attentive. We will definitely stay here again.

Free kayaks, bikes for rent, and an excellent Island night. I would recommend this hotel. This is a luxury resort, but more reasonably priced than Pacific Resort or Lagoon Resort. Friendly staff, and clean rooms.

We loved this place with the beach just a hop away. We had a hut type room as they all are. Was very clean and cozy. No tv and no radio which was nice allowing you to totally escape and relax. We snorkelled every day and loved the lagoon type beach with it's white coral sand and scenery of the... More

After an extremely busy and challenging year, we desperately needed somewhere to simply 'stop'. Upon arrival to Rarotonga and then the quick flight to Aitutaki, we could feel ourselves starting to wind down. Once we settled into our beachfront bungalow, a nap on the deck was the first order of business! AAAHHH... We were looking to get away from it... More
