From the moment we were so warmly greeted we knew that our stay at Etu Moana would not be long enough. After a wonderful wedding in Rarotonga, we spent 4 nights in Aitutaki at Etu Moana for our honeymoon. This wasn't long enough! We stayed in Villa 4 which was set just back from the beach, and although it is...

There's not much to say about Etu Moana that hasn't already been said before really! But we had such a fantastic time, we'll give it a rave review anyway! We also stayed in villa 7 and agree about not being concerned about having got a beach front bungalow - we had a beautiful view across the gardens, as well and...

Etu Moana is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. If you think the website and reviews look and sound wonderful, expect something 100 times better. This place is GORGEOUS. Yes, Etu Moana is perched on the perfect lagoon, with glistening crystal clear water, with 8 romantic secluded villas (all decorated the same) with perfect colourful gardens and pool....

This was our second trip to Aitutaki and second stay at Etu Moana. Everything was just as we remembered and even a bit better. The staff and Jim and JoAnne were beyond helpful and welcoming. We've booked again for next year.

ETU MOANA ticks all the boxes, rings all the right bells! It starts with the professional and welcoming email correspondence, ends with a genuine and reluctant farewell at Aitutaki Airport. After 25 years of travel to about 73 countries Etu Moana effortlessly makes our Best list, joining such accommodation and/or locations as Hayman on the Great Barrier Reef Australia, Lake...
