We have been to Etu Moana 4 times now. Every time we go we always think how amazing it would be to get married at the resort with all our friends and family. After months of planing and saving we finally made it happen. If you are thinking about doing an Island wedding I would recommend Etu Moana and Aitutaki... More

We had Room 8 which is one of the Garden villas - in saying that you could still see the lagoon across the pool and through the trees. The staff were just so beautifully friendly and helpful. The villas were spacious and had everything we needed. We did some self catering as well as enjoying a few cafes and restaurants... More

Trip 13 to Etu Moana was great. Crazy to think that a perfectly nice California Summer would be traded for Winter in Aitutaki? Nope..Sunny, peaceful, shades of blue lagoon, little fishes, sunsets and sunrises, pink clouds, the Southern Cross and the Milky Way, falling stars. Top notch staff, tidy bungalows, lovely breakfast, meeting new people from all over the world.... More

The Villa's are just stunning, all with their own unique sea view, we loved our first four nights in Villa 6 overlooking the pool, before upgrading for the last two nights to Villa 4 which just a few steps onto the beach.

Everything you would expect from an upscale boutique resort. Customer service was attentive and excellent. We stayed in Villa 9 right on the beach and could not have been more impressed! Stunning views, all of the mod cons, very clean, and QUIET! Daily breakfast by the pool was a special treat, with delicious fresh fruit and other goodies as well.

Amazing little resort. Location is fabulous, we would recommend hiring a car or scooter to explore the island as it is only very small and there is no real public transport system. Very lovely stay!!!

Etu Moana is a small (just 10 villas), upscale yet simple beachside resort. The villas are absolutely gorgeous....well constructed, beautiful bathroom, galley kitchen, comfortable bed, very well-maintained. Ours had an AC unit, but we didn't use it as the weather was perfect...warm tropical days and cool breezy nights. There is no restaurant on site, but there are several within easy... More
