Etu Moana is the nicest place on earth. Villas have everything you need (comfy bed, nice bathroom, TV with pre-loaded movies, filtered water, fridge, mosquito nets, etc.) and are daily cleaned. Honesty bar has more than reasonable prices and SUPs and kayaks on the beach are just calling you for adventure. Breakfast is yum yum. And the staff is great:... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Etu Moana. First of all, the staff are most wonderful people we have met. We were very looked after. The receptionists are keen and eager to help when we needed advice on restaurants or activities. My husband fell ill on the trip and the manager Paul took us to the hospital and back promptly...

Well, I start this review writing it in English, in order to allow people all around the world to appreciate this fantastic Resort located in Aitutaki Cook Islands. I've read the italian review (september 2015) before the one I'm going to write and i found it really misleading and inaccurate. I stayed in this resort for 5 days, with my... More

We spent the most relaxing holiday of our lives in one of the lovely beachfront villas (Villa 10) at Etu Moana in November. Nothing can describe waking up & opening the shutters to look out over the beautiful lagoon each morning, & enjoying a glass of wine whilst watching the sun set from your own beachfront verandah! Oh how we... More

An oasis in the middle of paradise! A mix of beachvillas directly facing the ocean and sunset views and villas facing the amazing garden... You can't really go wrong as all of them are so close to the beach. Beach beds are provided and there is a swimming pool and honesty bar with very reasonable prices (means you can always... More

Wonderful sunsets from the breathteaking beach in front of the resort. Very kind and helpfull personnel contribute to an unforgetable holiday. Given the very dark nights and not illuminated roads it is advisable to be privided with a car or at least a scooter to reach the closest restaurant for dinner.

What a gorgeous property! Friendly staff, great amenities and wonderful location! We thought this was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed on a beach. The island of Aitutaki is wonderfully quiet and low key and the beach in front of this hotel is perfect. We wanted an "absolute beachfront" room and loved ours. Huge deck open to the... More

This is a beautiful place to stay on Aitutaki. It's only 6 rooms, so not crowded or noisy, breakfast is lovely fresh fruits with the usual accompaniments, served by the pool. There are 2 x kayaks and 2 x SUPS sitting on the beach for your use and a mooring buoy out on the reef so you can paddle out,... More

Just went through my summer pictures and found this amazing picture of Etu Moana and it took me right back. Stayed there two weeks with my girlfriend and it was one of the best summers of our lives thanks to Etu Moana and their amazing team. After a very warm welcome with a fresh opened coconut and a tour through... More
