Anyone that's looking to step back, relax and ditch their watch for a week. This is the place. From the day we arrived to the minute we left all our needs were catered for. The staff made sure all meals and tour bookings were perfect with special mention to the GM and his wife who gave it their personal touch... More

Over all , the accommodation was lovely , meals were great, staff were friendly. the bungalows were very attractive with everything there. The pool was great , and so close to the beach. A beautiful environment and super people. Staff/reception was only too happy to make bookings. On the down side, attention could/should have been given more to maintenance of... More

We stayed at Tamanu beach for our wedding anniversary. Staff were relatively helpful and quite friendly. There were amazing water views from our garden bungalow and great snorkeling, and we recommend the giant clam trip however improvements could be made with the basics such as the room cleaning (ie topping up toilet rolls) and replacing towels with holes. We were... More

Stayed here in April for our honeymoon. The place was perfect for us. The room was very spacious, clean and had a good view of the lagoon. Staff were all helpful when we needed any help with places to eat, tours to go on or any other general enquiries. Bicycles on site which were helpful during the day (no street... More

My wife and I stayed 10 days at Tamanu Beach, located in Aitutaki Island. The island is beautiful, especially the lagoon. The resort was good, but we tried to spend as much as possible time around the island. The resort facilities are neat, but it has two sections separated and from where we stayed there was a longer walk through... More

Our stay, split the journey from New Zealand to New York. What an idyllic island, larger than we first imagined, but having all the indigenous qualities of the Polynesian culture .Friendship and peace, exude from the Tamanu beach resort, set on the shores of a gin clear turquoise lagoon. Our home for the duration of our stay,a beach front bungalow,... More

My wife and I had a three night stay and we enjoyed every minute from, sitting on the the deck watching the sun set to Kayaking or just laying on the beach chairs and doing nothing. The food choice for the evening meal was good and breakfast just what we like. Staff were eager to please and always with a... More

We stopped for a drink at the restaurant here on a couple of occasions and lunch on another. It was the end of March, the very end of the low season, and a quiet time of year - we were the only people in the restaurant on two of the three occasions. It's a very pretty spot overlooking the sandy... More

Not pretentious, but quite comfortable, on great section of beach. We were there during quiet off season time and usually had the beautiful beach to ourselves. Good snorkeling right out our door. Kayaks for sunset watching (or...) a nice plus. Current manager, Greg, went out of his way to provide personal service to us.....plus he's just a genuinely nice guy.... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Tamanu Beach, and it was in a beautiful location. The room was spacious with a large bedroom, a sitting area inside and out, and 30 seconds to the beach. Rooms were clean, and I felt I had all to myself for miles gorgeous beach on the lagoon that provided excellent snorkeling and... More
