We stayed 4 nights in during August at these beautiful villas (except for mosquitoes). The villas are lovely,thatched roof and a good sized verandah overlooking the lovely gardens and a seaview. The beach is just a stroll down the path, it has white sand, turquoise water and coconut trees. The villas have a microwave, fridge and a cooktop. Good sized... More

Amazing location right on the lagoon and the villas were wonderful. However, for the price I would expect much better amenities i.e. better breakfast, free internet, better opening hours for reception, and more attentive service all round. So although it's a great resort, the value for money is poor.

Everything that everyone else has written is true. The resort is peaceful (apart from the roosters which are all over the island), the villas are huge with great facilities, the honesty bar is a bonus and the breakfasts are a showcase for the island produce. However the most wonderful moments come from the staff. Kirsty and Paul have great advice... More

Stayed during Oct 2015 for our honeymoon. We stayed in Villa 6. It felt like our own little home away from home! Such a relaxed setting and wonderful accommodation. Self serve bar and casual breakfast. Spent most of our time at the beach. Would highly recommend Etu Moana, especially if you need to unwind!

A good time had by all at Etu Moana. Excellent accommodation - comfy beds, gorgeous bathroom and great deck over looking the ocean. Made great use of the pool and self-service bar. And when we got sick of that ventured into the ocean for some swimming and snorkeling. Our hosts Paul and Kirsti were so hospitable and full of local... More

Etu Moana is a small, friendly and luxurious retreat away from all the hustle and bustle and we would recommend it to friends and family in a heartbeat. Their villas are perfectly presented, very private (the villas are very well spaced out on the property) and the resort is beautifully landscaped throughout. A lot of effort was clearly put into...
