My room was literally 5 coconut trees to the lagoon; a true island get away. Room was clean, owner very helpful; I loved the airport pick up and drop off. Idyllic and relaxing place, the snorkeling was superb, way better than the Bahamas. Again, the Cook Islanders were wonderful people. Don't miss the Tamanu Island night and the marine preserve.

Meitaki Gemma for your review. Also thanks for the chicken meal - it was delicious. I know that you enjoyed yourself plus you relaxed as well which is great and that's what it's all about. You indicated that you may return with the family. I have a lot of guests who take advantage that we only have two units and...

Excellent location, helpful and friendly owner, all the amenities you need. Beautiful views any time of day but sunsets spectacular. We enjoyed our stay and would happily return. Roosters crowing is the call of the Islands and to be expected. Amuri Sands neighbouring properties have roosters, maybe take ear plugs if you think it may bother you or embrace an...

Just spent three weeks at Amuri Sands, this is our second time there and it is a special paradise. Beautiful view, sandy beach and snorkelling right from the beach.

Kia Orana Louise and Mac Always such a pleasure to have you stay. Unfortunately with only two units we couldn't put all the family up but it seems everyone used Amuri Sands as the base which was great. I have no doubt you will have adjusted to those "cool" days in Canada by now - such an extreme to our...

The comfort and privacy of Amuri Sands was just what I needed. Best view with palm trees, oceanfront and sunsets. Mark was very helpful with scooter arrangements and island tips. I went solo but this a perfect spot for couples too. Stayed a full week with snorkel trips every other day. Several wonderful food choices within walking distance or get...

Amuri Sands is situated on the ocean front with a view of coconut palms, a frangapani tree and a breath taking, picture postcard, stunning view of crystal clear water from the veranda. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and user friendly. Mark is a helpful, non-intrusive host who supplied us with rain water and fresh bananas and pawpaws. He...

Kia Orana Kate So glad you enjoyed your stay at Amuri Sands and Aitutaki. You managed to ride the scooter again after a long spell and you seemed to enjoy the experience. The bananas grown in Aitutaki are the best I have had anywhere. Unfortunately I don't have them all the time - the same as the paw paw. But...

Needing some serious down time from work, we stayed at Amuri Sands for 1 week in early October.

Aitutaki was the last step of our 2 years' journey. Hence Amuri Sands was perfect to calm down after travelling a lot and to enjoy the island life. The owner Marc is taking great care about everything. You have a wonderful view from your balcony. Just be aware of falling coconuts if you wanna go down to the beach 😉...

Kia Orana Adrian and Jenny You certainly managed to open the coconuts with ease - well done. Paw paws are in abundant supply at the moment as the current guests can testify to, along with freshly picked bananas from the property. Not to many paw paws when you were here. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and relaxed, especially...

We stayed at Amuri Sands for 8 nights on the recommendation of our friends whom also stayed here recently. The booking process was smooth as the owner (Mark) responds to emails promptly.

Kia Orana Davin and Moi Thank you for that interesting review. It was a pleasure to have you both stay with us and the time just flashed by. Yes you are correct, a scooter is a good idea even though the island is only 7 x 2.5km it can seem quite large, especially when it is warm. Also, ear plugs...
