Aitutaki is about as far away as you can get from our home without starting to come back again and I expected and enjoyed the remoteness while being comforted by the luxury and excellent service. This hotel is the best on the island, it has a small number of luxury bungalows right on the beach (shame the roofs are plastic). The lagoon offers easy snorkeling (kit provided by the hotel) easy kayaking and even easy walking (specialist shoes provided by the hotel). The setting is beautiful North West facing, so good sunsets. The beach is long and the parts beyond the hotel boundary full of interesting things to see. Venture farther afield to the local town for local life and color. There are bikes to use if it's not too hot. The pool is well designed and the pool bar/cafe provides all the refreshment you could want. Things are expensive but you are a long way from everywhere so it's not surprising. The restaurant is excellent with some tables directly above the beach and/or pool. Island night was a hoot but some of the local dishes were best avoided (I'll let you decide which). The staff are wonderful; always smiling, friendly, helpful and skillful. Island time does dictate the pace though so be aware.
Don't want to end on a negative but on the day we left we had paid for 'day use' as our flight was not until 18:00. We were asked if we would move rooms as ours was needed for a new arrival. Inexplicable in a hotel selling itself as world class. It isn't that but it is very good. We didn't move by the way.
