We started in villa 4 which was great with a view of the sea and then stayed in villa 10 which is absolute beachfront and it was perfect . All villas are the same but the absolute beachfront ones are the best, you have a great... More

In march we spent 2 weeks at Etu Moana and it was simply a dream! There are only 10 very beautiful self-contained bungalows with spacious terraces and fully equipped kitchens, located at a breathtaking beach. Etu Moana is managed by Lucile and her husband Tim, a very friendly and extremely helpful couple, who organized everything we wished and helped us... More

The nicest beach location on Aitutaki and I think the best looking of the beach accommodation in the area. It was a wonderful relaxing holiday, the view from the beachside villas is incredible and I could spend hours laying on the beach reading with such beautiful surroundings. Etu Moana have really gone the extra mile and added the little things... More

We spent our 48th wedding anniversary at this idyllic place, and couldn't have wished for a happier day! Our wonderful hosts, Lucile and Tim, delivered a beautiful greetings card and a bottle of Champagne to our beach-front villa. Nothing was EVER too much trouble for them. We met and made friends with other guests from far and wide, breakfasting round... More

Etu Moana is our home away from home. The staff and management are beyond helpful and nothing is too much to ask. On was our 7th visit. We experienced Cyclone Mike and some "normal" humid weather. The Etu Moana managers and staff made every guest feel safe and Samade fed us in our villas as we rode out the cyclone.... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and couldn't recommend it enough! We had spent hours online looking for the best place to go and we could not have chosen better. The managers Tim and Lucille were so welcoming, and we felt like we were staying with friends rather than at a resort. The breakfasts were delicious, and the honesty bar... More

We recently stayed at Etu Moana for our honeymoon and absolutely loved every minute. The staff are wonderful and very welcoming and the villas are just gorgeous. The location of the resort is close to a great range of restaurants (both casual dining and more upmarket) and we certainly took full advantage of the bicycles that are available for guests... More

It has taken so long for us to write a review on our wedding at Etu Moana as we really could not find the words to do it justice, but we shall try. We first went to Etu Moana in 2010, so when we decided to get married there was not a second thought on going anywhere else. But back... More

A peaceful ,relaxing and very private boutique resort, where we very much felt that we were the only people lucky enough to enjoy this place. At low tide you can walk along miles of beach, and when it rained we saw the unique sight of a complete rainbow from end to end. In January it was rather too hot to... More
