""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."

""Genuine Hospitality"
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!“
