To the Etu Moana family:
Thank you for making our honeymoon a wonderful memory that we will cherish for years to come. We would especially like to thank Jo-Ann, Jim, Steve, Amanda, Tere, Cecilia, and all of the staff for making our stay here truly a home away from home.
Aitutaki's beauty and charm is really centred around the warmth and love of the people who reside here. We definitely felt this with as soon as we arrived. And as we prepare to depart for home, we are already missing some of the local experiences that made this trip extra special to us.
As avid foodies, nothing on the island or in Rarotonga made our bellies as happy as Sonja's (of Tauono's Garden Cafe) coconut cake. She also makes a mean breadfruit lasagna and gave us master chef tips on how we could recreate the dishes when we got home. Her intuitive style of cooking is packed with flavour and many local-grown ingredients; garden-to-plate dining that is down to earth. Quite literally.
To work off Sonja's culinary creations, we chose to embark on Aitutaki Adventures' yellow boat lagoon cruise. Puna and his wife were excellent hosts. Puna's sense of humour and laid back personality allowed us the freedom to see and snorkel in some of the most beautiful spots of the island without feeling the need to rush. And let's not forget the lunch prepared by his wife--simple, homestyle, and oh-so-flavourful.
Thank you again for the heartwarming hospitality and being so kind to us when we needed to see a friendly face.
Meitaki and kia orana!
