We can only endorse the rave reviews from everyone else - a fabulous place with a wonderful team looking after you !! We were fortunate to stay in Villa 10, right on the beach and the more secluded - sadly only for two nights though (having got there we could have stayed two weeks, if not forever, and would suggest...

We stayed for a few nights recently at Etu Moana and were really impressed. Very peaceful and relaxed style of luxury… which is just what we were looking for. I don’t think I can ever remember commenting about the smell of a hotel before – this place had an incredible fragrance throughout the grounds, coming from the beautiful tropical gardens.... More

This place is just exquisite. Our villa (5) may not have been beachfront but we had a lovely view of the lagoon from our private deck as well as the pool. Mieke and Eric's warmth and their welcoming smiles made our stay even more special and we loved the villa. Spacious, clean and fully self contained with a kitchen, a... More

Etu Moana was everything we had hoped for and more. A lovely property on the beach of Aitutaki. With only 10 villas it felt secluded and very special. The villa's are spacious and decked out with everything you need. The pool bar was a fabulous feature, especially as we had friends with us to share it with. Breakfast was very... More

Ok... so I studied Aitutaki reviews and re-read reviews several times before deciding to spend the big bucks at say at the Etu Moana - Glad we did it. The Islands are deserted hence the prices. Our rooms was absolutely gorgeous, the location is unreal and the ocean is beautiful. Free stand up paddle boards are essential way to explore... More

Having booked Etu Moana knowing it would only be for 2 weeks, I knew when I made the 2 week plan it would have the same amount of tears at departure as arrival. This is the second visit this year and one planned for upcoming Sept/Oct. Believe me trip upcoming number 11 is for ALOT longer than 2 weeks. Went... More

Beautifully located on the edge of the water, with magical Aitutaki lagoon only a few minutes drive (or bike ride) away. Our bungalow was one back from the water's edge, but due to positioning we still had a great view. Lovely breakfast bar beside the pool. Helpful staff who seamlessly go about their business. This place emphasises tranquillity at its... More

Etu Moana is incredible. It really is paradise personified. The staff are so warming and helpful, especially the current manager Meieke, who would do anything for you. The private beach has crystal clear water, and Etu Moana provides free Kayak's and SUP's, as well as snorkelling gear. The breakfast was plentiful, the selection of movies and books just added extras.... More
