After researching places to stay on Aitutaki for several weeks I found Etu Moana and had my heart set on staying here from the first time I saw the beautiful pictures on their website!!
The location, rooms, layout of the resort, attention to detail (incredible!) and the wonderfuly friendly owners Jo and Jim and their fantastic staff (Theresa and Lovey) made us feel like old friends right from the moment we arrived.
Everyone on Aitutaki was so friendly that it is very easy to slip into island time, let out that final breath and fall into a state of true relaxation.
Even our minibus driver (Chloe) who we really only met twice during our stay gave us a hug on our final night - this was after she serenaded us on the ferry back from the Aitutaki resort where we had dinner!!
Aitutaki and Etu Moana are a truely fantastic experience and we were so sad to leave that we were nearly crying at the Aitutaki airport!
Our only regret is that we didn't stay here longer! 4 nights was nowhere near enough and we are already talking about when we can come back again.
Thankyou Jo-anne and Jim for creating a magical place! We are so glad we chose to have our 15th anniversary at Etu Moana.
