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

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

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

The rooms are large, wonderfully decorated, large bathroom with bonus outdoor shower and mini kitchen. Also a fantastic large balcony where we would enjoy morning... More
