“Lead by setting an example, enthused with passion, fun, kindness and a huge smile promoting exceptional services, alongside a willing and happy local community team on a remote luxury Island in paradise”.

Steve and I have been travelling whilst working globally for the past 20 years, 7 years as a International resort groups operations director, building a small village in Sri Lanka after 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami to clearing a jungle track in Borneo, and so much more in the mix. I love to work my professional magic in ensuring that all experiences are piqued and memories created are exceptional in every way. Steve’s naturally practical and organized with an artistic flair and a highly zoned attention to detail, plus an abundance of ‘Common-Sense’ Fused by our strength and diversity, we promise to deliver the very best luxury holiday experience ever!

What’s on your bucket list, we would love to help create your dreams.

The Etu Moana Photos

Outstanding photos make the intangible tangible. You will immediately feel that they communicate with you, touch your heart and some might even leave you a changed person for having seen it. 

Those photos capture the view of someone, who deeply knows and loves Etu Moana. Someone who is attached to the island of Aitutaki and its people. His name is Paul Knight, and most of the photos you see on this website are from him.
