Absolutely the best!! From secluded beach, private kayaks, bikes, mopeds, incredibly clean and up-scale rooms, nice pool, honesty bar, everything you could dream of a place to stay and more. But what sets this place apart from all the rest is the staff. Incredibly friendly and helpful, all needs met. If you desire a secluded island vacation with white sand,... More

we stayed in villa 2 from 6 to 14 July as part of our honeymoon we can only echo what's already been said in other reviews about the place. The entire property is stunning and the photos on their website don't do it justice. Everything about the place is spot on...the gardens are beautifully landscaped and very lush, the stretch... More

We stayed in Etu Moana from the 4th to the 13th July – nine days of bliss! Where does one even start with this beautiful accommodation? For me, what sets Etu Moana apart are the people - owners and staff; Jo-anne, Jim, Terresa, Lovey, Parama, the housekeeping ladies, everyone made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Jo-anne... More

Everything that you will read in other reviews is true- we just feel that it is important to continue to show how amazing this paradise is. From the moment you are picked up by Lovey, to when you are dropped back at the airport, you know you have made it to paradise. We stayed 9 days on our honeymoon and... More

Possibly the best place we have ever stayed in Oceania. Stayed in Villa 8 for 4 days and nothing at the resort or the island disappointed. The staff is fantastic. Jim and JoAnne are the nicest host in the world. We have traveled every June for the past ten years to different Pacific islands and this was the best.

We spent 7 nights in Villa 3 at Etu Moana in June07 as the first stop on our Honeymoon. What a wonderful choice!. We were greeted at the airport with flower ei's and recieved beautiful coconut drinks when we arrived at Etu Moana. Our week was spent snorkeling, kayaking with the complimentary kayaks and snorkeling gear and just sitting watching... More

We spent 6 nights at Etu Moana - the best 6 nights we have spent anywhere! Absolutely every detail has been thought of by Jim and Jo-Anne (including removing the coconuts from the tree overhanging the villa to save any midnight surprise landings on the thatched roof!) and their staff are fantastically helpful and friendly. The villas are all superbly... More

We stayed at Etu Moana for 3 nights of our honeymoon in May/June 2007. I'd read all the great reviews, and it did not disapopint! The property and villas are gorgeous, and the beach was great. I loved having the pool (and honesty bar) on site, and the owners are lovely. We wished we could have stayed longer, but they... More

If ever there's a place to exceed your expectations, then this is it! We chose Etu Moana having seen the website and read TripAdvisor reviews. It was far, far better. We were welcomed at the airport by Lovey with beautiful fragrant leis and then at Etu Moana by the owner Joanne with the words "Welcome to Paradise". How right she... More

We read the wonderful reviews on trip advisor and had to experience Etu Moana for ourselves. Yes its all true! This is one fabulous resort with great owners, lovely staff and marvelous lodging, pool and beach. We were well cared for (above and beyond the norm) and made to feel like we were part of a family. Ask yourself, when... More
