"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!
What a wonderful place and experience. Everything has been thought about (even a colander, the lack of which in most accommodation is a standing joke in our house). Nothing was too much trouble, Jane tried to teach me to ride a scooter and offered to come paddle boarding with me.
"The star of Aitutaki"
We were very fortunate to spend 4 nights at the beautiful Etu Moana. It’s exactly as the pictures suggest. International management and local staff have the 8 villa complex looking immaculate and running in perfect order. There’s a friendly feel about the place; everyone is enjoying themselves and we felt very cared for. World class. This is certainly the star of Aitutaki.
It is seldom one experiences genuine hospitality in the day and age, and it was an absolute pleasure to enjoy the benefits of this rare commodity throughout our stay at Etu Moana. Jane, Steve and their Team go out of their way to attend to your every need, and yet very professionally manage to ensure your privacy at the same time.

„The resort is leading the way in Aitutaki. Plus they are one of the few resorts that continue to use natural coconut palms (nikau/kikau) for roofing. Way to go Etu Moana!“
