We spent our 48th wedding anniversary at this idyllic place, and couldn't have wished for a happier day! Our wonderful hosts, Lucile and Tim, delivered a beautiful greetings card and a bottle of Champagne to our beach-front villa. Nothing was EVER too much trouble for them.
We met and made friends with other guests from far and wide, breakfasting round the pool every morning. The breakfast menu might have been a little more varied, but being on a remote island, we couldn't possibly expect the same as a five-star hotel in London or Sydney.
The whole atmosphere was one of casualness. Sleep when you want, swim, kayak, or take a day tour on the amazing lagoon to one-foot island.
Relaxation was the name of the game, and although we hired a car for a couple of days, we also borrowed Etu Moana's bikes to cycle along the road for lunch or dinner. Great fun!
This island is very special, and Etu Moana is even more special. - right from the moment you step down from the plane, to the moment you watch it disappear ruefully at the end of your stay.
But, we will be back...
