Aitutaki is a picture postcard island and Matriki is situated on one of the best beach areas, safe swimming and lovely snorkeling. The huts are small and basic, I would have preferred to have had just the fridge in the room with shared kitchen facilities elsewhere as it felt weird cooking in the bedroom. But It's very good value for... More

Hi Lisa, Bas and family Hope everyone is travelling well. Thank you for taking the time in between your RWT to write this review, we very much appreciate it.

Couldn't recommend more. Lovely spot. Clean and comfortable without losing the rustic charms of a beach hut. Paul and Lisa were great hosts. Highly recommend their boat trips. Small numbers and didn't feel like a commercial tour at all. So glad I didn't go on one of the bigger tour boats. Nice personal experience. Felt like a nice day out... More

When you fly into Aitutaki, you will sense how lucky you are and how impossibly beautiful the location is. Yet when Lisa picks you up and introduces you to the island, you may start to feel the essence of the experience you will have. Lisa and Paul are truly living my dream and they are visibly excited about their surroundings... More

From the warmest welcome to the sad, sad good bye we felt at home. Matriki is all about chilli, unwinding and getting back to nature . Lisa and Paul make you feel like family as soon as the plane touches down. The huts are mini palaces and defiantly an escape from reality .Leave your high heals and suits at home.You... More

I am so happy I chose to stay at Matriki. From the moment I stepped off the plane I felt extremely welcomed by Lisa and Paul. They were so helpful and answered every question I had.

Matriki Beach Huts had everything we needed for a great vacation on Aitutaki. We stayed in the Garden Unit with its own private bathroom. It was a one bedroom studio that suited our needs perfectly: kitchen with gas stove-top for making meals, french press, a hotpot, a toaster, refrigerator and dishware. Everything we wanted was there: the beach was a... More

Staying at Matriki was a really unique experience. The beach huts are small and are located on the beach. You can see the water from your hut. There are so many thoughtful touches, for example a foot bath out the front to wash the sand of your feet. There is a shared bathroom located close to all huts. It is... More
