My stay on Aitutaki was absolute paradise and Gina garden was for me, the garden of Eden on Earth. Des and Tutai, the owners are the most lovable, natural and helpfull persons I ever met. They did all efforts in the world to make me and my spouse to feel at home. I will never forget the time I spent...

If you want to stay in a cheap accomodation, then stay here, the lodges are clean but very very basics, the beds are not good, there is no aircon, everything smells humid. a good backpacker option.

I spent approximately a month on Aitutaki. A total of only a couple of hours on Rarotonga. I just loved everything about Aitutaki. The owner met me at the airport with a warm welcome and several leis, possibly from the Lodges, that smelled exactly like paradise. We stopped by the grocery store to stock up on necessary items and on...

I stayed at Gina´s for about a week with my friends. We were greeted on the airport with amazing leis and brought back to the lodges (picking up motorbikes on our way), where we got two huts instead of one, but for the same price! This great impression stayed for the rest of our time there, we picked coconuts which...

I have been to Gina's twice so I am biased. I know that good reseach is a big part of expectations and the final result. All factors must be balanced as to good and not so good in relation to cost. This is a low cost(pay for what you get) but 5/5 experience.... A must do. Treat Gina's as a...

We are an Irish couple who have just spent 26 days in Gina's Garden Lodges and we absolutely loved it. The lodges are located inland at the southern end of the island and are clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, plenty of living space, a large bathroom & enough beds for a small family. The lodges are cleaned...

Gina's garden lodges are off the beaten path, so if you are expecting a beach view, this isn't for you. The easy availability of motorscooters made that not a problem for us and encouraged us to explore the islands a bit more. The owner, Tutai (aka Gina, aka The Queen) was willing to drop us off and pick us at...

My fiance and I (both British) recently spent two weeks at Gina's Garden Lodges, and loved every minute. The owner, Tutai "The Queen", and her partner Des, were both very welcoming, and did all they could to accommodate our needs during our stay (including airport transfers, motor-scooter hire etc). It was our first time on Aitutaki, and we left our...

Well, my partner and I have just returned from 25 days on Aitutaki. We stayed at Ginas Garden Lodges and at the owners other accomodation called Ginas Beach Lodges on the motu called Akaiami.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gina’s has two properties on Aitutaki Island, Cook Islands. One - Gina's Garden Lodges, is on the main island, and is about 5 minutes walk from the Tautu landing, on the Eastern shores of Aitutaki lagoon. The second, beach side property is situated on one of the reef islands at Akaiami Island - 5 miles across the lagoon. This is Gina's Akaiami Beach Lodge. We are family friendly and welcome children of all ages. Both of these locales offer an environment that is special to Eastern Polynesia, and in their own way give reality to those Pacific dreams which travelers seek, and which cannot be found at Resort Hotels. ... more   less
