My husband and I chose this property after reading the rave reviews and after our stay we were so happy that we did. The staff are so friendly and hospitable and the entire stay is designed so that you may be self sufficient whilst on a very peaceful island. The villas are very private and spacious. The views from all... More

Wow. What an amazing place! We flew direct from Australia (overnight = no sleep!) and arrived early in the morning, the other guests were all having (what looked to be, and was proven later to be amazing) breakfast around the pool - we saw this during our personalised tour of the property when we arrived. This was just the beginning... More

Very private villas, relaxing, great views, great beach, great for kayaking, great for watching the sunset from the sun bed with cocktail in hand {that you made yourself from the honesty bar} but no restaurant. Do you need one ? No. It would take the atmosphere away. Buffet breakfast at poolside included in tarrif. Service desk is very helpful in... More

We visited Aitutaki in early June and stayed at Etu Moana. It met and exceeded all our expectations, with views from our room of the idyllic white sand beach with turquoise waters and fantastic sunsets. The staff are soooo friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble for them. Lying under a palm tree on the lounges, afternoon naps, "gin"... More

Couldn't have asked for a more private, relaxing place. The location and service is awesome, and villas were perfect. A really good breakfast is provided, for dinner there's a lot of options walking down the beach to other resorts. I love the concept of an honesty help yourself bar, kayaks and bikes, this is the perfect couple retreat!!

From the moment we were picked up at the airport, until the moment we were dropped back, our experience at Etu Moana was incredible. Mieke and all the staff made us feel welcomed and cared for. The decor of our Villa was lovely and it was equipped with everything we could possibly need. Although we did not use it, they... More

We had our honeymoon at Etu Moana and it was the most perfect place. We were in the Absolute beachfront room. The reef was only metres from the room and we'd swim, snorkel and kayak amongst the coral.

We stayed 4 nights at Etu Moana in May 2015 and it was so amazing I feel compelled to write a review. This place is awesome! All you could hope for in a getaway, beautiful scenery, fabulous views, all the facilities you need and at no extra cost and warm friendly people. We were asked by the owners as we... More

This was our second time to Aitutaki and staying at Etu Moana and it was just as amazing as our first time there in 2013! We stayed in villa 8 this time (instead of one of the absolute breachfront ones) and it was just as lovely cause you can still see the lagoon the moment you open your eyes in... More
