Over Etu Moana Aitutaki
Uw eigen sfeervolle villa op het strand, in de tropische tuin of aan het zwembad. Het echte eilandgevoel wordt op deze manier eenvoudig gecreëerd. Aitutaki zelf is vrij vlak, herbergt een aantal kleine dorpjes, biedt mooie wandelroutes naar onder andere het op een heuvel gelegen meer Maunga Pu en de bevolking zwaait en lacht alsof hun leven er van afhangt. Etu Moana laat u vrij genieten van dit eiland. In de ochtend kunt u genieten van uw ontbijt bij het zwembad, 's middags wellicht de geweldige onderwaterwereld verkennen tijdens een duikexcursie om vervolgens per fiets Aitutaki te verkennen en eventueel uw avondeten in te slaan, die u in uw romantische villa zelf kunt bereiden. Uiteraard kan het personeel u ook tips geven voor de leukste lokale restaurants van Aitutaki. Een 'laidback' verblijf gegarandeerd!

"Paradise for our 20th wedding anniversary "
What can I say. We stayed in Villa 1 and it was perfect. Kirsty and the staff were fabulous and very helpful. All facilities were great. We were given a bottle of bubbles to celebrate our occasion and for that we say thanks. The bed was comfy, the outside shower was used all the time and the villa just so spacious. The pool was great and the breakfast was light and plentiful. Staff great as well Tips. Take plenty of repellent and be prepared for the goats and roosters making their noise all day. I was able to turn off and ignore it because the view and surrounds were beautiful. Also ensure you get help in booking dinners as it can be difficult finding last minute meals. Overall. We would stay here in a heartbeat and know that if it's the seclusion you want, this is the place. Thanks heaps guys.
"Single traveller paradise"
I arrived on a rainy Saturday evening and was greeted at the airport by Paul. Kirsti took me for a tour of the place upon my arrival at Etu moana, and I was so pleased with my villa (I stayed in Villa 2 for 3 nights, then Villa 8 for my final evening). I had fish and chips from Puffy's just up the road from Etu moana, Paul dropped me off there and I walked home equipped with a flash light and umbrella... I couldn't wait to wake up the next morning, and when finally did I opened my front doors and I was so delighted to see the beautiful beach from my villa. It was exactly as I had pictured! Kirsti is so attentive and made sure to greet everyone every morning at breakfast, which was really lovely. I love the Cook island plunger coffee! And of course the fruit! Just beautiful. The staff were excellent and made suggestions on what I should do while on the island.I was travelling alone so I was keen to do as much as possible! If you are up for an authentic Aitutaki experience, look no further than Punarei Cultural Tours with Ngaa - you can book this through Etu moana. And for your ultimate lagoon adventure, I strongly suggest The Vaka Tours - again, you can book this at Etu moana. Kirsti is a yoga guru and takes yoga class at Etu moana every Sunday at 4pm. I met some wonderful people in this class and ended up becoming very good friends with 2 of the ladies! We ended up going to karaoke that evening at the Boat Shed, was such fun. What more can I say about Etu moana? Apart from I miss this place very much!! Kirsti and Paul are incredible and the accommodation speaks for itself. I look forward to heading back sooner rather than later!
"Quiet Casual Luxury"
We have recently returned from two weeks in the Cook Islands, including 3 nights at Etu Moana, Aitutaki. We arrived late morning from Rarotonga and after a welcome drink around the pool, our villa was ready for check-in ... complete with bubbles on the balcony . We were in VIlla 1 - right on the beach! A perfect start to our Aitutaki interlude. The Villa was spacious, self contained and well appointed. Breakfast around the pool was great - fresh and simple, with good coffee! Given the short length of our stay we chose to 'eat out' for lunch and dinner rather than cook ourselves. We did note there were several good looking delivery options available to assist with self catering. The information in the Villa and the staff were very helpful in making arrangements for dinner and taxi transport. The honesty bar was great for that late afternoon cocktail and cool down in the pool. Bikes were provided for use, as were stand up paddle boards, kayaks and snorkelling gear. We used them all! We also ventured around to Ootu Beach and used the kayaks stored there. We did the Vaka Cruise with pick up and drop off from the Villa's which was a fun day on the lagoon. We didn't hire a car or a scooter ... but we might next time to explore the island a bit more. We loved Etu Moana ... quiet, casual, relaxing luxury. Private and peaceful. A couple of tips : Book a beach front villa - it's worth it! Don't forget your insect repellent and cover up in the evenings - the mosquitoes were fierce! Checkout the Coconut Hut just along the beach for casual 'in the sand' dining and a cocktail. Book a day pass for your final day and a late flight back to Raro. Pack light - you won't need your high heels!
"Best place to relax"
What a special place to celebrate a special occasion! Kirsti, Paul and all the staff are so welcoming and helpful. Drinks on the balcony while enjoying sunsets and the ebb and flow of the tide were the perfect end to days full of snorkelling, kayaking, bike riding and fishing. A short bike ride into town for supplies so we could make best use of the self catering facilities in our villa. Or a short walk along the beach to several relaxed-style restaurants. We even joined the locals at Vaka training one evening - hard work but good fun.
Etu Moana was everything that was promised, and how lucky we were to have Villa 3! The view from our deck was amazing - so much so we spent an entire day just sitting on the lounges gazing out on the lagoon watching the fish jump and hoping to see a whale (we didn't but I heard they were out there) I got bitten only twice in 5 days from mosquitos - we used the coils provided and knew we were going to a tropical island so brought with us insect repellant. It may be worse at other times of the year but the bugs did not bother us that much as others have mentioned. As previous reviews mentioned the swimming is a little difficult at low tide, but we just made use of the pool at those times or ventured around to other parts of the beach where the water is deeper. Breakfast was so good! I loved the musli and yogurt and the local made bread was delicious! And of course the waffles - yum! All the staff are amazing and always smiling (although we didn't come across a single unhappy person that lives on the Cook Islands!) We ventured around the island and in our opinion this is the best place to stay on Aitutaki - it is quiet and secluded and perfect for guests who don't want to share the pool and serenity with too many people, most times we were the only ones on the beach or in the pool. I can only hope we make it back one day to enjoy again! We highly recommend a snorkel cruise (we used TeKing who was awesome) truely the most beautiful experience to appreciate what an amazing island Aitutaki is.
