We didn't stay at Matriki Beach Huts, so I can't comment on the accommodations, but we did go on the snorkel trip they offer. The snorkel trip was amazing. The day was filled with snorkeling at some amazing spots. The difference with Matriki is that he goes to spots that are not necessarily on the itinerary of the other tour... More

My wife looked at the photos of the huts and said eeek ! your taking me to stay with Robinson Crusoe!. But what a pleasant 9 days it was. The huts are right on the beach which has Coral as good as any on the island 10m offshore. They & the toilets are kept very clean by Tracey & Nga... More

I came to aitutaki to relax, snorkel and have a real Pacific island experience. This was the perfect place for all of it. Simple but clean and homely huts, just on the beach with beautiful snorkeling spots all around. Very helpful and nice hosts giving me tips on the best shops and places to go on the island and helping... More

Staying in matriki is not like staying in a western cocoon of a resort where you experience nothing of island life.... Trevor and Tracey at matriki really made our holiday in aitutaki. We stayed for 8 nights and by the time we left we could feel the pulse of the island. We were truly involved in island life. Trevor and... More

After travelling for a few years, how many hotel suites, motel rooms or backpacker hostels do you really remember ? Probably not many. That said, I wouldn't mind betting that, after a few nights at Matriki Beach Huts, your memories will become indelible and will remain with you for years and years and years . . . Matriki Huts is...

What can we say about matriki beach? The location is perfect. The hut we stayed in was 27 paces from the water at high tide. The picnic bench on the beach could be moved so you sat with your feet in the water. The snorkling off the beach was great, good coral, various fish deep enough at low tide to... More

Matriki is one of the very few places I have visited which just does everything right. The lovely little beach bungalows are so clean and comfortable, yet so simple. The views in the morning over the lagoon are lovely. Trevor and Tracy are great hosts - it felt more like visiting friends more than anything. Highlight was definitely going on... More

Hi Trevor and I have tried to make the place as comfortable as possible and to provide all the little things that make a place special. It is often the small details that are noticed the most and make such a huge difference. Like the lunches you mentioned, we really spend a lot of time and energy in making the... More

I'd like to facetiously thank Trevor, Tracy, Ted and Tiger for ruining our grand vacation. My wife and I just retired and to celebrate we have just begun an nine month vacation. Unfortunately our first stop was Matriki on our way from Los Angeles to Auckland. It was a perfect Paradise. There can be no better hosts than Tracey and... More

When I was on Aitutaki in June, I discovered Matriki, quite by accident. It's one of those places that you immediately know you have to come back to. I was staying in different accommodation at the time, but booked with Tracey and Trevor to stay at Matriki on my next visit. My feelings served me well! I stayed at Matriki... More

Honestly, this is one of the nicest, most beautiful places in the world. Tracey and Trevor have done a tremendous job with Matriki. It's the details that make a difference. The huts are immaculate. They put thought into every little detail, from the curtains to the kitchen equipment. We have absolutely no complaints. If you want a resort with a... More
