Etu Moana is a little paradise of its own on the beautiful island of Aitutaki and we knew it was going to be a very special place when we found out that some of the villas were already booked 10 months in advance!! We thought we had booked the perfect honeymoon when we chose to spend it in Aitutaki but Etu Moana made it even more perfect than we could have ever imagined. It is not possible to fault this place in any way!!! - and we are extremely fussy about our accommodation abroad!! All the amazing reviews you read on Tripadvisor about this place are all true!! From the moment you meet Cecilia when she picks you up at the airport, you'll know you've chosen a wonderful place to spend your time on Aitutaki. All the staff are so lovely and friendly and will go out of their way to help you, so it soon feels like a home from home. Etu Moana is designed in such a way that each villa is very private, so although there are 8 villas on site, you can feel like you are the only ones there! The beach will feel like your own private beach too because you'll often not see anyone for the whole day, after having had breakfast by the pool. Etu Moana most definitely has the best sunsets on the island, which is a must see from your villa front or on the beach and is the perfect end to another perfect day on Aitutaki. The villas are modern and beautifully designed with so much attention to detail and are the ultimate in luxury on this small idyllic island.There is a pool bar, known as the honesty bar where you can help yourself to drinks when you want and make the various cocktails listed in the cocktails recipe book if you're feeling adventurous! There is snorkelling equipment, kayaks and reef shoes available for guests to use (for free) and the lagoon by the Etu Moana beach is simply incredible- look out for the amazing blue starfish!! Make sure you ask the advice of Jeff, Janine, Lovey or any of the other girls before you make any bookings for tours or restaurants- they will guide you to the best things you should try and there's also files at reception with all the tours available on the island and a list of all the restaurants/cafes, which they'll happily look through with you. After our first day in Aitutaki we thought our 12 night stay might be a bit long, but staying at Etu Moana enables you to totally relax and unwind and feel like you are in your own private paradise on the most perfect honeymoon imaginable, so our 12 night stay went by too fast and we will deifinitely be returning one day soon and of course, we will be staying at Etu Moana.

We have just returned from 6 nights at Etu Moana. The terrific reviews of Etu Moana on Tripadvisor persuaded me to book this resort, as we had never been to the Cook Islands and did not know what to expect.
Etu Moana was all that we wanted, gorgeous villas, Impeccable gardens. Excellent service and the nicest of hosts/managers, Jeff & Janine.
This is the perfect place for couples, whether older (like us) or honeymooners, with whom it is quite popular. If you like a peaceful, gorgeous place, this is for you!

Our 3rd visit to Etu Moana and we had a wonderful time. It always lives up to our expectations. Plenty to do or just relax. The staff and hosts were great. Went on "Yellow Boat" snorkel twice during our 3 week stay, Wonderful! The more often we go the more we love Aitutaki. Koru cafe ! Great food and lovely people. "Local Style" Island night at Puffy's was great fun and good food. Rent a scooter and just cruise around. We'll be back next Fall.

My wife and I stayed at the Etu Moana for a week in August, 2010, and would without hesitation recommend it . The manager and his wife were extremely friendly and helpful, and they have organized a staff that was just great. If they can keep the resort in current shape going forward, there is not a better place to stay on Aitutaki.

We have just arrived home from a week at Etu Moana and it was the best holiday we have ever had Jeff and Janine are the kindest most helpfull people you will ever meet, nothing is to much trouble the rooms and grounds are amazing and the staff are happy whilst we were there we had a chance to check out some of the other hotels and nothing even compared even if they charged twice or sometimes three times as much per night, do your self a favour and book early we booked 7 months in advance and it was worth the wait, its all the little things about this place that you wont find anywhere else service like this has been lost but not at Etu Moana
