Normally use TA but never seem to find the time to contribute. We are finding time with Etu Mona as it is truly sublime. The location is the best on the the island sand soft with little coral on the sunset coast of which finish off each day with perfection. The villas each feel secluded well designed and furnished the... More

It was our first visit to Aitutaki and we chose to stay at Etu Moana. It is a small and intimate place. Very beautiful. The beach area is amazing too. The receptionists are very helpful. They've booked every meal and tour for us. The hosts are also very friendly. The only thing we would complain about is the rooster crows.... More

This was our second holiday at Etu Moana and our 5th trip to Aitutaki. This resort is very special. Beautiful spot on the lagoon and bungalows that are spacious and well appointed. Easy to walk along the shore in either direction to find restaurants of great quality. As well as eating out we tried the delivered BBQ pack from Koru... More

What a charming spot! We stopped there on our way from the US to New Zealand and it was a great way to deal with jet lag. So relaxing, Tim and Lucile are wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, all in all a great experience. Try to get a villa directly overlooking the beach, make sure... More

I stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. Snorkeling gear, reef shoes, bicycles, kayaks etc all available for the guests. Excellent breakfast and BREAD. I haven't eaten anything like that in a long time. It reminded me of the fresh polish bread baked at home. It was amazing to have it for a breakfast during Christmas. Beach... More

A wonderful mix where man and nature live together in a wonderful environment. Well constructed facilities, both when it comes to details and design. We felt like a part of the Etu Moana family thanks to all kind and smiling people in the staff. A dream destination.

My son and I have just spent six days in the Cook Islands, two of them staying at Étu Moana - and we loved it, and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff are so helpful, and friendly, as was the owner. The villa was gorgeous, looking over the beach, and with everything - and more - that you... More

My wife and I just returned from our 4th stay at Etu Moana. 3-weeks long and not a day too long. As before, Etu Moana was beautiful and very personal. Managers Tim and Lucile and the rest of the crew will make you feel special every morning and every day. We love the islands, the stunning lagoon, the friendly people... More

We stayed at Etu Moana for a week for our proposal and for my fiance's birthday. The entire experience was incredibly special. The hotel staff and Lucile and Tim do a fantastic job of making you feel welcome and comfortable. The property is very clean and maintains a perfect balance between feeling tropical and luxurious at the same time. If... More
