From the moment we stepped off the plane in Aitutaki we were greeted with warm smiles - especially from our host Tumai who was there to greet us at the airport. Arriving at Aitutaki Escape we were greeted by the lovely Thomas who proudly gave us the grand tour of our beautiful private villa. He made us feel very special... More

My husband, two sons (22 and 17) and I stayed in the 2 bedroom bungalow. Thomas, Lizzie, and Tumai were extremely kind and took very good care of us, picking us up at the airport; driving us into town for provisions; providing sumptuous breakfasts with delicious (still hot) homemade pastries and fresh fruits; providing helpful information and assistance booking activities;...

Had a great stay, beautiful property and views. The staff were brilliant and I would highly recommend the private chefs dinner. Everything we requested to be organised prior to our stay was done and the lagoon tour was really fun

My partner and I stayed at Aitutaki Escape for 9 days. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of Thomas and his crew. The breakfasts each morning were a highlight, always fresh, different and so so tasty. The villas have the best private(quiet) beach and are well maintained along with air-con.

There aren't that many sit down restaurants in Aitutaki. And the restaurants that do exist are often associated with hotels. The Aitutaki Escape has only 3 total units, so there is no adjacent restaurant. That meant that each night we went out to eat, we went to other hotels. We went to the PACIFIC RESORT, the AITUTAKI LAGOON RESORT, the... More
