Big 'mai take' to Lexie, Elaine, Thomas and all the crew at Samade for making our first trip to Aitutaki an unforgettable one! The most important thing for us is the staff making us feel welcome and they did that amazingly well - even with a few renovations happening at the same time! Rooms were clean and tidy. Air-con a...

We spent 8 nights at Samade Resort. This is a beautiful location with a wonderful view right on the lagoon. The swimming is good here as is the kayaking. It is very peaceful at the end of the road, so no traffic. The restaurant was great and we can't say enough about the staff. Lexi, Elaine and the rest of... More

I spent 5 nights at Samade and was very pleased. Service, views and food was all such a great experience. Having a cold beer outside and seeing all that lagoon was unforgettable experience. Will be there again soon!

Wonderful stay, with friendly staff. and great Food cooked by the owner Tomas. The local people were always, pleasant and happy to chat. The sea was so warm to swim in and very clear and clean. Snorkelling areas were easy to access, but the best spots were on the lagoon cruises.

Lovely hosts and fantastic food. Sweet bungalows all beside the world's best Lagoon.Heaven on Earth. This is Polynesian Hospitality at its best and the food was much better than expected. We felt so very warmly welcomed and enjoyed loved our stay.

We have just returned from Aitutaki and had the most wonderful time. We were met by Elaine at the airport for the five minute drive to the resort. Don't be put off that this resort is so close to the airport. The accommodation is not the best and is somewhat tired and dated but what it lacks in luxury is... More

My partner and I recently took our first trip to the Cook Islands before his Australian visa expired as he had seen Aitutaki on a Swedish(go figure) travel show when he was younger and it had been a dream of his ever since to visit this island. We looked at a range of accommodation for Aitutaki and ended up choosing... More

Aitutaki is one of those places you never want to leave, made all the better by Samade's location and staff. You start the trip to Aitutaki with a 50 minute flight culminating in flying right over the lagoon giving you a view of what is to come, the thing you have been dreaming of. Met at the airport by a... More
