What an amazing place. We stayed in one of the beach villas No 10. Beautiful rooms with all the usual, air con, indoor and outdoor showers. A small kitchen and a lovely balcony to watch the amazing sunsets. It's set right in front of the sea which is fairly shallow all the way out to the reef. Kayaking and snorkelling... More

What can we say...it's probably a good thing that we can't think of much to write about Etu Moana itself on our fourth visit to this wonderful place. That means it hasn't changed, and we wouldn't want it to! Etu Moana is still the same charming residence we remember. This time we stayed in Villa 4, one of the beachfront... More

Every detail of this hotel has been thoroughly thought out. The space is designed so that all the villas can see the sea. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very good. The pool and bar area is lovely. It can rain at this time of year but each room has a DVD player and reception has a... More

This was our third visit to Etu Moana and by far our best yet. We loved the manager Mieke and her team, they went out of their way to make us feel at home. We'd also like to thank Parana who organized all our activities and helped us plan our stay. Definitely book fishing and snorkeling tours while you are... More

The beachfront villas are well worth it - I think my favorite place on the whole island was on the day bed just watching the sunset. The staff are really friendly and hit the perfect balance between looking after you and leaving you to relax. Having visited some of the other higher end resorts on the island Etu Moana just...

Do you want the truth about Aitutaki? It's a little bland. I'm just being honest. Etu Moana took this holiday from being mediocre and turned it into near on perfection. On Aitutaki there isn't really that much to do. There's half a dozen restaurants, one walking trail you can finish in half an hour and a few churches and that's... More

It was wonderful , as always...back again soon. It was our ninth visit and we were fortunate enough to time our stay at Etu Moana and be a very small part of one of the Esther Honey Foundation Aitutaki "Vet Treks". We had the honor of helping the feral and domestic cat population and made many new friends. This will... More

My husband and I spent 9 days of our honeymoon in Villa 10 and were blown away. The villas are beautifully maintained, staff was excellent, and you cannot ask for a better view of the lagoon or prettier grounds. The staff also helped make all of our off-site activities easy - from renting scooters to restaurant and market directions to... More

Had a fabulous birthday stay. Mika and her staff made our stay all the more memorable. The snorkelling was wonderful, we also enjoyed kayaking, cycling and our church visit. Would love to return .. Oh and also met some of the loveliest local people .beach
