“Paradise in Paradise”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Wonderful facilities in the most stunning location. Intimate resort where personal relationships are built with fellow guests and super-friendly hosts, Lucile & Tim. Perfect for a romantic getaway - fully detached & segregated villas for as much privacy as you want. Loved the honesty bar by the pool!

Room Tip: Book early for the 3 totally beachfront villas, but all 10 have varying views of the beach/lagoon/oc...

This is my favorit in the south pacific. Ideal for relaxing, biking, snorkeling and to kayak.
I can highly recommend this cottage and would spend more time there....
Lucille & Tim are doing a great job, congratulations!

Gracious welcome. Wonderful pool villa, which we enjoyed more than the beach villa we would normally book. Very roomy and comfortable. Good A/C and plenty of hot water. We thought this pool villa (there are only 10 total vills at the resort), afforded us the privacy we sought. Several honeymooning couples, so if you want a place good for kids, look elsewhere. We loved the quiet, simple elegance.
Service was very good
Only complaint, breakfast, the only meal provided. It is skimpy and repetitive and needs work
Great for romance and snorkeling. Fringing coral, right off the beach, was remarkable

Room Tip: Aitutaki is very quiet, which we sought. If you're searching for lively nightlife, look to a dif...

My husband and I had a fabulous stay here for four days for our honeymoon. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the honesty bar was so refreshing, great breakfast and blissfully relaxing. The cottages are simply gorgeous, I highly recommend this property

We very much enjoyed our stay in this resort (19.- 26.9.13). Tim an Lucille together with their team do an excellent job to keep their guests happy and are available whenever needed. The lagoon and the sunsets are outstanding. A excellent location for people that love a quiet place. It is definitely its money's worth.

Our Honeymoon at Etu Moana and at Aitutaki was perfect...we were in Paradise. Here all is perfect and the staff very very kind!!the lagoon sea is magic and also snorkeling in front of Etu Moana beach is very beautiful because you can see a lot of fish in a very simple way.We also suggest the lagoon cruise at One Foot Island:here we felt like Tom Hanks in "Cast Away"..Thanks a lot to feel us at home.Kiss and Hugs Roberta & Marco

The Etu Moana facilities are top notch, the staff are excellent and the managers do all of the little things just right. The costs per night might be somewhat higher than available elsewhere on the island but the expenditure here is worth every penny for a once in a lifetime experience.This was our second visit and we look forward to returning again soon.
