Well, if you want a holiday where you get away from it all, this is the ideal place. The accommodation is first class, along with all the staff who are very friendly and can't do enough for you. Grieg, the manager certainly makes your stay as comfortable and relaxing as can be. You can be as active as you like... More

We spent 3 perfect days at Tamanu Beach. The staff was very pleasant and responsive to any requests. The snorkeling was fantastic. We took a boat cruise with Wet & Wild to some remote spots for snorkeling outside the reef...this is a must. The food at Tamanu was great and so was the service. Our room had a great ocean... More

Tamanu Beach is a great place to experience Aitutaki. Great staff, helpful and available. Beach side pool relaxing and refreshing. Beach area very close to bungalows and plenty of lounge chairs. The palms provide shade or you can be in the sun. You can snorkel right in front of your bungalow or you can walk out to various reef heads... More

We were greeted on our arrival by the manager, Greg, and his staff continued to make us feel welcome during our 3 night visit. The meals were very nice and we enjoyed the Island night complete with dancers on Thursday night. I loved the fresh local flowers on the tables, on the arrival, on departure, on our bed, on the...

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

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.
