We recently returned from our honeymoon to the Cook Islands and I just had to write a review for Etu Moana. The place is perfect for honeymoons/couples wanting a relaxed and comfortable trip.

After our first trip to Etu Moana we were unsure about returning to Aitutaki because of the beach beyond of Etu Moana and mosquitos. However Joanne and Jim were such great hosts we couldn't resist the urge to return and we are glad we did. Etu Moana is taking huge steps in mosquito control. Last year we couldn't enjoy our...

This is definitely the best place we've ever stayed. Aitutaki itself is paradise already, but Etu Moana makes it even better. The nice and very friendly staff make you feel at home, it's quiet and intimate, the villas are romantic and spacious, the view from the villa (we were in #7) is great. We especially liked all the details in...

Arrived here a wk after the cyclone and the island was a bit of a mess but Etu Moana was still looking great. The gardens were getting cleared up. Our room was fantastic and the staff were excellent. All very friendly and Jo the owner was the best. Made us feel very welcome and helped us out with things.
