It is our local staff’s authentic dedication and pride that form the heart and soul of Etu Moana.
You can notice this throughout the resort. Sense their Polynesian happiness and the genuine hospitality. Listen to their singing while they clean the villas in the morning.
And take the opportunity to experience a mutually beneficial interaction between them and yourself.
For over fifteen years we have worked together in several exotic and astonishing locations and are blessed to find ourselves managing another truly spectacular property. Our time in private yachting plus managing boutique and unique lodges and resorts within the South Pacific region attest to our passion for guest hospitality.
We are drawn to the culture, heritage, climate and cuisine of the Pacific and we look forward to sharing the best of Aitutaki and the Cook Islands with you. Etu Moana is the epitome of ‘paradise’ and we are its passionate Hosts, so let our experiences and aspirations, and those of our local team, ensure you have the very best experience here.
Kia Orana & Aera Ra - May you live long & safe travels
Nick & Pip Goodhew, General Managers
We like to Call it The Big Five:
Enjoy the privilege of exclusivity and personal Polynesian hospitality, with only 14 guests on average Indulge in romance, tranquillity and privacy under a natural coconut palm roof that otherwise is longer kept alive on Aitutaki.
Experience the priceless beauty of nature and our philosophy for a sustainable tomorrow. Barefoot luxury for adults only.
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.
