Visited Etu Moana for five nights as part of our March 2011 honeymoon in the Cook Islands. This was by far the best place we stayed. It was beautiful and private, literally on the beach and the staff were wonderful and friendly. I can't say enough good things about everything about the whole place.

My wife and I just returned from our 4th stay at Etu Moana. 3-weeks long and not a day too long. As before, Etu Moana was beautiful and very personal. Managers Tim and Lucile and the rest of the crew will make you feel special every morning and every day. We love the islands, the stunning lagoon, the friendly people... More

The rooms are large, wonderfully decorated, large bathroom with bonus outdoor shower and mini kitchen. Also a fantastic large balcony where we would enjoy morning... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in October 2013. We had a room on the beach. Great location. Great staff. Great service. We just loved it. Really close to walk to restaurants. The honesty bar is fabulous. Can't wait till we can go back!

We had a very relaxing stay for 10days. The day bed was very comfy to watch the world going by (during the windy and rainy weather) truly relaxing. Great to catch the whales breaching, 5 siting's. Our villa was very comfortable with everything that we needed. Close by Puffys was fabulous for Fish and Chip, with island salad, dinner, and... More

There was a very warm welcome from all of the staff at Etu Moana. The Villas are perfectly situated either in the garde area or directly in front of the lagoon. The pool area where we also had a wonderful Tropical breakfast with lovely bread specialities is beautiful. You can also use the mountainbikes from Etu Moana to explore the... More
