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...

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

we recently stayed at ETU Moana and could not have asked for more. We had a garden view villa, it had a view of water from the verandah. While it wasn't absolute waterfront it was only a 30 second walk to the actual beach, and it was cheaper. It also meant that it was more private for us because the... More

Normally use TA but never seem to find the time to contribute. We are finding time with Etu Mona as it is truly sublime. The location is the best on the the island sand soft with little coral on the sunset coast of which finish off each day with perfection. The villas each feel secluded well designed and furnished the... More

It was our first visit to Aitutaki and we chose to stay at Etu Moana. It is a small and intimate place. Very beautiful. The beach area is amazing too. The receptionists are very helpful. They've booked every meal and tour for us. The hosts are also very friendly. The only thing we would complain about is the rooster crows.... More

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

We stayed in Etu Moana Total Beach Front Villa from the 26.12-02.01.2015. It was so wonderful if we could we would go right back again.
