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!

Kia Orana, welkom op Aitutaki. Het eiland Aitutaki staat bekend om zijn prachtige lagune, waarvan wordt gezegd dat het de mooiste van de Cook Islands en zelfs van de hele South Pacific is! Aitutaki is zeer geschikt voor wie op zoek is naar rust en ontspanning en in de watten gelegd wil worden door uiterst gastvrije en vriendelijke mensen. Als u hier niet volledig tot rust kunt komen, dan zal u dit nergens ter wereld lukken!
Etu Moana is the highest rated accommodation in Aitutaki for a reason. While this is not a 5 star establishment, you have everything you could want to be comfortable there. Paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel gear, reef boots and bikes are free to use. There is a also an honesty bar where you can make yourself a cocktail or grab a snack any time of day. The location is perfect, only a few minutes on a scooter to town and located on a beautiful and well maintained beach. Beds and rooms are comfortable and well equiped. We especially loved that our tv had a hard-drive attached with loads of movies to watch on the rainy days - so thoughtful when there's no channels on the island! What makes Etu Moana really special are the managers Kirsti and Paul who go out of her way to make sure you have a fantastic stay stay. During our stay there was an annual kayak race that many locals on the island were involved in. Kirsti and Paul were so generous to pay our fees to be involved in this race and dinner. Thank you for a wonderful stay, I would highly recommend Etu Moana to any of my friends!
"Heaven on earth"
The moment you arrive, you feel welcome and assured that you will be provided with anything you might need for the duration of your stay. Incredibly generous with extras and amenities, the accomodation provides bikes, snorkelling gear, kayaks, paddle boards, breakfast, and a well-stocked honesty bar, among many other things. After staying for five nights, it is my opinion that Etu Moana has the prime location on the island; it lies in comfortable proximity to the shops, restaurants and other facilities that are available closer to the main township of Arutanga, and yet is also an easy bike ride away from the gorgeous swimming/water sport playground that is Ootu Beach. It is obvious that Etu Moana prioritises paying homage to the rich culture and practices of the Cook Islands in their design of the villas and landscape, all while seamlessly incorporating familiar Western comforts to provide a high level of luxury for their guests. The area is so beautifully designed so that each traditional villa has its own privacy and unique charm, but also so that you feel a kind of unity with the people staying around you. The poolside tropical breakfast, overflowing with delicious and varying options, provides you with an opportunity to meet new guests, and to chat happily with those you have already met. You get the sense that no one at Etu Moana would ever have a reason to be in a bad mood; everyone inevitably begins to slow down to island time. The villas are decked out with anything you could possibly need. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a fridge and a freezer, filtered water supply and easy-to-use gas stovetop, and so it allows you to eat in as little or as often as you desire. The bathroom provides you with a gorgeous outside shower, as well as the option to shower inside if you prefer, and all the towels in the world! The bed is king-size (perfect for sharing with nighttime feline visitors if youâ€™re a solo traveller like me) and the television has a hard drive with so many movies that it can be hard to convince yourself to not just stay inside all day. I love the idea of the honesty bar, which completely negates any necessity to buy refreshments from the grocery stores - itâ€™s all provided for you. I want to thank the staff at Etu Moana for everything they did to make my visit to Aitutaki special - complimentary transfers, daily housekeeping services, and even something as simple as a smile and a friendly â€œKia Oranaâ€ whenever they saw me. I have to extend my gratitude to Kirsti in particular, who checked in with me every morning over breakfast to provide guidance, answer any questions I might have, and generally chat about anything. In lieu of dogs for obvious reasons, I hope she always keeps at least four cats on the property! She and Paul are genuinely lovely people, and it is really quite unique to Etu Moana how involved the owners are on the property - from helping their staff to tend the grounds to a high standard each day, to personally making dinner reservations for their guests. I also must thank Paul for the fresh niuâ€™s he sourced for me, I really appreciated the gesture! I was very sad to leave Etu Moana, but I know that I will carry fond memories of my time there, and look forward to when I can visit again. I hope Aitutaki always remains an untouched paradise on earth. Thank you again, Ellie (Australia) P.S. you have my email if you ever open that restaurant onsite and need to enlist a waitress :)
"I Can Hear Something"
Each time we travel to Etu Moana I can hear the Planet breathe. Simple beauty in the lovely grounds. Flowers.Quiet whisper of the edge of the lagoon as it comes and goes with the tide. Coconut palm fronds blowing in the breeze. Sunset gathering of most of the guests as we all look at the end of the day. A staff and managers smiling and eager to fulfill requests. Perhaps a massage on the deck of your Villa. Fresh fruit and nicely planned breakfast by the pool each morning. A true sense of peace. We truly love Etu Moana and cannot wait to return for trip 18.
All that has been said about the serenity, beauty and welcoming spirit of all the staff is true. Every detail from the airport pickup, guest welcome, orientation with Kirsti, facilities in the villa, honesty bar, breakfast, booking of tours has been carefully orchestrated to provide the perfect getaway in paradise. We stayed in Villa 9 which has a stunning beach view, spent most evening watching sunset from our lawn chair and made use of the BBQ a couple of night by ordering in the BBQ pack. Kirsti and all of the staff work hard to create a personalized experience for each of the guests. I appreciate that she'd take the time to say good morning and offer suggestions and answer any questions we had. Can't recommend Etu Moana highly enough and can't wait to be back!
