What a delight, great spot and so relaxing. The villa was very spacious and had all we required - just the two of us but would be fabulous for families! Comfortable beds and great shower. Enjoyed the use of the kayaks - Lawton and Marie were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Short walk along the beach to the... More

The villas are only steps from the beach, via a grove of shady coconut palms. They offer comfortable spacious self catering living, with all mod cons. The large covered decks are a great design feature - just made for family gatherings or a quiet read and snooze. This is really a little slice of warm, peaceful tropical heaven...providing a memorable... More

A group of close family and friends stayed for a week and had an absolutely wonderful, relaxing time. The villas are all perfectly appointed, comfy beds and balconies all with superb ocean and sunset views. Kayaks are on site for use as well as sun loungers. We had the pleasure of Mama's fresh scones, Laughton's coconut husking demo and lesson.... More

Aretai Beach Villas are perfectly situated in every way. A perfect tropical island, a perfect climate, a perfect beach front location, and perfectly central to everything a visitor might need. The villas were spacious, quite modern and well equipped. Ceiling fans, insect screens, fantastic breeze flow - all made for a comfortable climate during warmer days. Beds were comfortable (very...

This was the most amazing location we ever stayed at! Even it was back in December 2009 we still remember this holiday as one of our best! Mama was so kind and our kids (6 months and 2,5 years) just loved her! She is a most giving person and the place is so much more private and beautiful than the... More

Set within immaculate grounds of native palms and fruit trees Aretai Beach Villas are an absolute treasure. We stayed in Beachfront Villa 3, a beautiful space where we could step off our balcony straight onto the white sandy beach. Mama is the most amazing hostess, providing fresh fruit from the garden daily... We hired a scooter to get around, went... More

We stayed 7 nights at Aretai Beach Villas and had the most relaxing holiday ever. We had done our homework and knew what to take and to expect from this type of holiday. It was like having your very own beach house on a tropical island and we like the option of self catering and totally pleasing ourselves. Everything is... More

if you really want to lay back & relax this is the place to be. No fancy restaurants or engineered entertainment just a lovely beach with lovely people & perfect to relax & re-charge. The beach is tidal but has an all tide swimming lane of around 200m. Quiet with lovely sunsets. Kayaks free & available to explore the lagoon.

Beautiful location only afew miles from the airport in a very tranquil part of the island. Not many tell you that a villa right on the beach on the west coast of Aitutaki can be very hot in the afternoon when the sun hits... It is not the case of Aretai beach villas. The two front units are shadowed by... More
