My wife and I will never forget our 4 night stay at Escape, and of course the amazingly beautiful island of Aitutake. We are well travelled, but this experience stands out as one of those lifetime events that only occur rarely and unexpectedly. Dion (Vane was away) and the crew deserve special mention for going the extra mile for us...

I really wanted to stay here but it was outside our budget this time around. I called in to see if we could view the property. Theresa was so friendly and very kindly showed us around and made us feel very welcome. We were shown the two bedroom villa which was incredible - very luxurious and private. We definitely plan...

Aitutaki is stunning no matter where you are on the lagoon or on the beach, but Aitutaki Escape is a cut above: by far the best way to experience a special holiday with luxury, space, a sense of privacy, everything you need at your fingertips - and that amazing feeling of having your own personal lagoon to explore on your...

We can only repeat the comments of earlier reviewers. This place is truly spectacular. We have just had 5 nights in villa 3, a one bedroom villa and have had one of the best and most relaxing holidays ever.

Wow - what an amazing villa for 6 nights. We loved the privacy and boutique style of our accommodation. The indoor/outdoor flow was perfect for swimming in our pool with total privacy, as well as the beach front deck for sea swims and stunning evening sunsets. As the villa is self catering - hiring a scooter enabled us to explore...

On our recent stay at Aitutaki Escape we experienced the most outstanding hospitality we have received anywhere in the world. Nothing was too much trouble for Vane and the charming housekeeping ladies.
