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

Aitutaki is absolulty gorgeous!!! what a great place to spend part of our honeymoon!!! rooms were nice, very much in the Polynesian style with thatched roofs. prices on the island are not cheap so we definitely opted to make a few meals/ snacks ourselves- we had to get a little creative as the rooms don't have anything but a small...

We stayed in the waterfront bungalows and how perfect was out time, PERFECT. I don't have any negative things to say, we had the most amazing relaxing enjoyable holiday. Staff at the resort are very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The CD player in our villa didn't have sound but it was swapped over without any fuss. Sunsets to... More

Aitutaki is incredibly beautiful - it is like being dropped into a postcard. We were exhausted when we arrived and the Tamanu resort is very relaxed - it was the perfect place to recharge our batteries. The villas are well designed - many little things have been considered, e.g. a washing line with pegs to dry towels, a jug of... More

Lovely resort! The beach front rooms are very private and beautifully done. The staff is lovely and food excellent! I has a massage with Susanne ( she runs a buisness called mobile massage) which was excellent. She brings her table, oil etc ....highly recommend her.
