Kia Orana & Greetings from Etu Moana on Aitutaki, Cook Islands

We have temporarily suspended Etu Moana operations. For inquires or reservations, please CONTACT us any time! We are happy to assist you with your questions. For official information, please check COOK ISLANDS GOVERNMENT.

The challenges we all face with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be alleviated by a sense of care, knowledge in your safety and maximum flexibility. We are here to support you and your travel plans to Aitutaki, and we are fortunate to be currently free of the virus on our shores.

Travel Safety at Etu Moana Beach Villas

We understand your health and safety is in our hands when you visit us. While this remains our main concern, Etu Moana carefully integrates the new regulations into its processes in order to continue to offer you a truly unique experience.

With our new offer of a private Etu Moana On-Veranda-Breakfast we may even go beyond our past and your expectations!

We have always paid great attention to maintain highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene within the resort.
We have implemented further proactive measures related to COVID-19 to promote a secure environment and ensure on going safety and wellbeing for our guests and staff.


Those include:

  • We have intensified our cleaning programs and introduced more rigorous use of disinfectant and sanitizing products. Our small team are involved in these updated protocols and procedures. All measures also include our vehicles, grounds, gardens, beach fronts and all physical profiles.
  • Opportunely, as an intimate property with just 10 villas, we can personalise your stay with specific concerns. We have natural social distancing by our design, we can vary the desired level of Housekeeping, offer you breakfast either in-villa or pool-side, and so on.
  • We will have hand sanitizer in our two ‘public areas’ and recommend their use. We will place sanitising wipes in each villa for guests who wish to disinfect anything themselves additionally.
  • If you do not have your own masks and snorkel, we will have a new snorkel for your use. Masks and other equipment such as paddleboards will be sanitized.
  • In-villa literature will be available via your audio-visual entertainment screen.
  • The traditional welcoming ‘ei’ (flower garland) will continue to be presented to each guest, however our friendly island hug or kiss must be replaced with a ‘meaningful nod and smile’.
  • Our personal airport transfers will be organized that no more than one couple is in the car at one time.

Our Personal Recommendation for Your Planned Travel

If your travel is planned for some time in the future, we would recommend waiting until closer to the departure date to make any decisions, rather than changing plans now.

Whenever it will be that you will grace our little island paradise, the Etu Moana team will be ready with the Aitutaki spirit that will ensure the warmest welcome.

Kia manuia and warm regards
Team Etu Moana
