I’ve been meaning to write this review for months now, but Matriki Beach huts was amazing! I stayed for 5 nights in September 2014 and wish I had stayed longer! The accommodation excelled all my expectations and was excellent value for money! I stayed in the Beach Hut and it had everything that I needed, including an outside shower, which... More

My son thinks Matriki is the "best place ever!" and we agree! We stayed at Matriki for 3 weeks with our two children (aged 9 and 11) and absolutely loved it! Beautiful location, amazing snorkeling, fantastic people...Tracey and Trevor are incredible and made us feel really welcome. They went out of their way to make it a special holiday -... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matriki without writing a novel! Not only is it an affordable slice of an otherwise expensive destination, it is also the best slice! Close to everything, lovely charming hut accommodation, amusing critters, cats, chickens, hermit crabs galore, and a perfect groomed beach which has world class snorkeling right out of your door, not...

We stayed at Matriki for six nights and we loved the beach hut right at the beach! Yes, the hut was small and basic, but realy, how much time do you spend there when you are on a bounty island with the beach starting right at your doorstep. With (beach) towels and a mozzie net provided, all you realy need... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Matriki Beach Huts. This little piece of paradise is just bursting with character and ambiance. The huts are rustic which in a way adds to the whole Robinson Crusoesque deserted island vibe enhanced by the fact that there are only 5 huts/rooms in total. The rooms are basic however - just a step above... More

Don't miss Matriki if you are looking for the place to be for not a lot of money in Aitutaki. You have everything you need there, from your own beach bungalow, very unique and an amazing view. Scooters, snorkel gear, your hosts have everything for you to rent if you need. We did the sorkeling day trip with them, and... More

We stayed 12 nights with Tracy and Trevor at the Matriki Beach Huts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The two of them try to do everything to make your holiday something special. The huts are really clean, as well the toilets and they clean up the beach every morning (even the 5 star resorts next to Matriki don't... More

We returned a week ago after a 6 day stay with only positives to report. This place was worth the three flights from Adelaide. Others had far longer journeys and this indicates they thought it worth the effort. Comments here show that the management has changed and Tracey and Trevor work flat out to make improvements and keep visitors happy.... More

We rented the entire Tree House which was ideal for a family of four - our teenage girls loved being on their own downstairs! Being able to snorkel right outside the hut was amazing and I highly recommend Trevor's snorkelling trips - and the lunch (especially the coconut pie!) We also went on a whale watching trip with Trevor and... More

We did not stay in the Matriki house but we had heard very possitive reviews about the lagoon tours with Trevor and Tracey. And we were not dissapointed! The whole family of five had a fantastic day in the lagoon with superb snorkeling. Great lunch spot on one of the islands. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a... More
