We spent 8 nights at Etu Moana and would definately put it on the list of best places to stay. Tim and Lucille were great hosts and the staff were helpful and friendly. The villas were perfect and the view just like the brochure. we will be returning.

The accommodation was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. The view from our balcony was off a postcard or a movie, possibly the prettiest place we've ever seen. After staying... More

The lagoon cruise they recommend with Panu was our favorite day of the trip. The Villas were private, spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The beach was stunning with great snorkeling and gorgeous sunsets.... More

We stayed at Etu Moana for 3 days at the beginning of July. From the moment Lucile and Tim greeted us, to our farewell at the airport our holiday was perfect! They offered suggestions for restaurants, organised bookings, pick-ups and suggested a lagoon cruise on our last day, which was a highlight of our holiday. Our beachfront unit had a... More

We stayed at Etu Moana for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. The staff were brilliant, the bungalows fantastic with full kitchen, massive comfy bed, veranda looking out to the beach and private outdoor shower for that rinse off after beach time. It small, only 8 bungalows, and that makes it quiet and relaxing. If you're looking for... More
