"A Personable Resort with Everything you Need"
Great, small resort. Rooms are beautiful, and the bathrooms have a very relaxing and luxurious feel to them. Each villa is standalone, and has a sizeable deck, and an outdoor shower. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Whilst small, there is absolutely everything you need, including SUPs, kayaks and masseurs.
"Outstanding boutique accommodation"
This small resort has well appointed villas with recently renovated bathrooms and fully appointed kitchenettes. The managers Jane and Steve are hugely experienced and it shows. They and the staff work all day and into the evenings to ensure everything is ‘just so’ and all their guests have everything they need.
Etu Moana, Aitutaki is the place to go, to get away from the rest of the world. Such peace and tranquillity - we have never experienced such relaxation. Absolutely everything you need is at hand but somehow it all still feels so simple and uncomplicated. We thought the resort was almost empty the first two days but it was in fact full! That’s how quiet it is. Jane and Steve are amazing - just the icing on Etu Moana’s cake.
"Great Place - 5 out of 5"
Top Place. Really great villas, especially number 1 on the beach. Staff send owners were fantastic. Honesty bar is a great way to operate a bar. Pool is small but you don't need as the sea is perfect.One thing, I would recommend scooter hire, the resort does provide perfectly fine bikes but on hot days they are not suitable - the resort will organise a scooter but probably best to prebook. Will be back.
We loved our stay at Etu Moana , the place had a great vibe and beautiful beach and the accomodation was superb!! Jane and Steve gave us a lot of recommendations that were fantastic. I will def go back!
"It's All About You!"
We arrived at Etu Moana very soon after the bubble opened and it was wonderful. The villas are lovely, each with a very funky bathroom, plus an outside shower, well equipped kitchen and have a traditionally thatched roof. We were in a garden villa for a few nights and then one right on the beachfront. It was so relaxing reading on the outside deck and watching the waves breaking on the reef.
"Etu Moana is a Paradise"
IT is a beautiful location, relaxing, fantastic hosts (Jane & Steve) - nothing is too hard for them. Love the eco friendly nature of the resort. Buzzing around the Island on electric scooters (the top speed limit is 35kms) was a definite highlight. We would definitely come back!
"Beautiful beachfront villas!"
We stayed a week in a beachfront villa. They are right by the water with beautiful views, including of the sunset. The beach and reef were very pretty. We chose Etu Moana for the snorkelling, and it didn't disappoint. It can be quite shallow, so you do have to navigate the coral. Off to the left slightly was a good route out, a bit deeper and less coral.
"BEST RESORT BEST BEACH ON AITUTAKI!"
My husband and I had the most amazing 3 nights here, being well looked after by Jane and Steve. Beautiful comfortable villa, lovely staff and the best sandy beach out of all the resorts on the island! Paddle boards and kayaks are free to use. We felt so welcome. For a romantic and relaxing getaway this is the place to stay!
