This was the most amazing location we ever stayed at! Even it was back in December 2009 we still remember this holiday as one of our best! Mama was so kind and our kids (6 months and 2,5 years) just loved her! She is a most giving person and the place is so much more private and beautiful than the... More

Set within immaculate grounds of native palms and fruit trees Aretai Beach Villas are an absolute treasure. We stayed in Beachfront Villa 3, a beautiful space where we could step off our balcony straight onto the white sandy beach. Mama is the most amazing hostess, providing fresh fruit from the garden daily... We hired a scooter to get around, went... More

We stayed 7 nights at Aretai Beach Villas and had the most relaxing holiday ever. We had done our homework and knew what to take and to expect from this type of holiday. It was like having your very own beach house on a tropical island and we like the option of self catering and totally pleasing ourselves. Everything is... More

if you really want to lay back & relax this is the place to be. No fancy restaurants or engineered entertainment just a lovely beach with lovely people & perfect to relax & re-charge. The beach is tidal but has an all tide swimming lane of around 200m. Quiet with lovely sunsets. Kayaks free & available to explore the lagoon.

Beautiful location only afew miles from the airport in a very tranquil part of the island. Not many tell you that a villa right on the beach on the west coast of Aitutaki can be very hot in the afternoon when the sun hits... It is not the case of Aretai beach villas. The two front units are shadowed by... More

The cottege are large and spacious, well furnished and some by the sea. They have a well-equipped kitchen and hot and cold... More

We stayed in the beachfront villa for 5 nights at the end of July/early August and were very happy with the standard and location. The villa is roomy and modern with everything you need for a self contained holiday, but handy to some good eating places if you want to stroll along for a meal out. The beach area in... More

I loved staying at Aretai Beach Villas, it was not a hotel but more like a home (without the clutter) Driving into the property through the lush bush, you enter an oasis of tropical gardens with fibrant tropical color and aroma .... there is even a ylang ylang bush ! If you arrive on the evening flight you do not... More

Wonderful villas right by the beach. Location handy to both ends of the island and to two resorts with restaurants. Had everything you could possibly need in the house as well as lovely fruit :-) Kayaks made for an easy trip out to the reef to snorkel and a good swimming hole has been dug out nearby on the beach....
