Our week at Tamanu was the trip of a life time. A real paradise. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the bungalows clean and roomy, the pool refreshing and well maintained. The open air restaurant was just a short walk along the beach. The food was excellent although there was a shortage of fresh vegetables at times. The waters just... More

The Tamanu Beach resort lives up to all the hype. Anything we needed was immediately provided. The Resort was quiet, very well maintained and the staff was there to provide service promptly and efficiently. Very friendly. The general manager introduced himself to us upon arrival and checked in with us several times during our stay. The restaurant was two minutes... More

Whether you would rate Aitutaki in the Cook Islands as a One Star or a Five Star vacation, depends on your expectations. If you are expecting the Polynesian Resort at Disney World or the Hilton Hawaiian Village, then you would rate it as a One. But, if your expectation is The Swiss Family Robinson or a Quiet desert island near... More

Our garden bungalow, breakfasts, meals (including Cultural Night and BBQ night, service and experiences at Tamanu Beach Resort were all top shelf! I have read a few of the reviews below and cannot for the life of me believe some of the comments. You are no more than a two minute walk to the restaurant from anywhere in the resort.... More

Spent 5 nights in Feb, 2014. This is the low season and the place was only about 1/3 occupied which was very good for us as the rest of the island was also very empty. The island itself is the attraction, beautiful beaches, friendly people, great snorkeling, good diving absolutely no crowd, we would love to return and would definitely... More

We spent 3 nights at Tamanu in a beach front villa, it was wonderful. Although it was very quiet there as it was their slow season, it was a great time for relaxation. If it is night life you are looking for then I don't think this is the place. The room was clean and the staff were very accomodating.... More

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at the resort, they make your stay so comfortable. The beach bungalows are perfect and offer just the right amount of simple luxury. The location really is the winner though, what an amazing place, memories of this island will last with me forever. If you have an opportunity to visit here I... More

This hotel is quite central in Aitutaki. The bungalows are separate and there is plenty of room. The beach is awesome and the restaurant is stunning overlooking the beach.The staff are very friendly. A very nice place to be based and close to other resorts.

Myself and my husband went here for the last few days of our honeymoon. We had spent the previous 12 nights in Rarotonga and wished we had stayed there! Upon arrival, we were told to have a look around as our rooms weren't quite ready, so we strolled around the pool area and looked at the beach, beautiful. We then... More
