"Best holiday ever"
We stayed at Etu Moana for 10 nights. Our stay was truly magical and by far best time of our lives. Hosts Tiffany and Jeff are exceptional and ensured our stay was perfect. All staff were amazing and so kind. We stayed in villa 1 which had best views I'd ever had.
We got married at one foot whilst staying at Etu Moana, the wedding planning, support and relaxed atmosphere was exceptional.
I would recommend everyone should visit Etu Moana in there lifetime,
"Forget mainstream Bora Bora - best Island small resort"
Excellent stay - the best of for islands. We had 2 bungslows. Jeff & Tiffany are great/real hosts. Beautiful setting, incredibly good food (huuuuge portions on the bare-feet dinner), all fresh... could use the buggy all the time... only 3 nights, Could have easily stayed some more...much better than bora bora from an Island perspective...
"A bucket list experience beyond our imagination"
The warm and beautiful greeting we received from Tiffany and Jeff the moment we stepped from our transfer from the airport into the reception lounge is something we will never forget. We were made to feel as though we were truly VIP's and had arrived in a very special place. Sipping on fresh coconuts as Tiffany welcomed us, Jeff whisked our bags from our transport to our beachfront villa. It all seemed so surreal.
"Superb service in a wonderful beachfront location"
We had regular and clear communication prior to our visit, and the in-person service from Jeff and Tiffany was superb - from airport pickup, to arrival, to making bookings for us. And the rest of the staff at breakfast and room-cleaning were also very friendly. Having the electric cart and bikes to tour the island was also great.
Tiffany and Jeff were fantastic hosts who went above and beyond to personalize our experience. Etu Moana is beautifully situated and well resourced to support a couple exploring the island or just enjoying the beach and lagoon out front. Paddle boards were great, the pool is immaculate, staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Thank you T&J, it has been wonderful to meet you and visit Etu Moana.
"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.
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!
