A wonderful place to stay. Our one bedroom villa was very spacious, comfortable bed with all conveniences. No kitchen, but a small fridge, electric jug only. Lovely outdoor area to sit and relax with a view to the lagoon. Beautiful flowers in room on arrival. Staff were very obliging and we loved the laid back atmosphere and being close by... More

We have just returned from the beautiful island Aitutaki. This was our first visit here and what you see in the travel brochures is what you get, pure beauty. We stayed here 4 nights in a lagoon view room. Liked it but would suggest the beach front rooms are best you get to see the whales and sunsets better. Only... More

Can't fault Tamanu. The service we received was fantastic and the staff made us feel right at home. I also need to thank them for bringing my passport back from the airport and also dropping off my partners hand bag back to her when we were about to leave. I spend a lot of time comparing resorts and feel that... More

Front staff was very friendly. The cottage accommodation was neat and comfortable. The restaurant was over priced and restaurant staff was less than slick. The place is near the beach and has good views of the lagoon.

A beautiful place to stay, the bungalow was very comfortable and the pool was nice to relax in. Staff wre very pleasant and friendly and the only thing missing was somewhere in the shower to put the toiletries.

Stayed here during my wedding (wedding held offsite at another location) and the staff were extremely helpful in providing assistance to my bridal party on the day as well as rearranging things to fit my timeframes of the stay. The only downfall is there was nothing to play music with, luckily we had a portable speaker to provide some nice... More

Been a lifetime wish to visit Aitutaki since reading of its seaplane history as a boy. Managed to visit this month (September) and wish I'd made the trip ages ago. Travel agent booked us in to Tamanu Beach and turned out to be an excellent choice. Bure right on edge of reef lagoon, front door snorkelling at high tide! Units... More

Beautiful spot right on the beach with spacious bungalows, lovely garden and beach front setting and helpful staff. Freshwater pools are small but nice after spending time in the lagoon snorkelling, swimming and kayaking. Nice and quiet and a great place to chill out. Restaurant supplies a nice island breakfast and other great meals. We would love to go back... More

We went to stay here because we hear it was good. We were not disappointed, picked up at the airport and arriving at the hotel to a warm welcome from Greg Ewen General Manager and his team. Really friendly and helpful staff throughout resort. Beautiful garden bure style separate self contained rooms which had their own deck and a gorgeous... More

Very secluded beach and beautiful bures. Fantastic diving and snorkeling. Huge hump head napolian wrasse and giant clams. We hired scooters to get around the island which worked well. the water was clear for diving and snorkeling with amazing coral and coloured fish
