At Etu Moana... It is all about indulgence and the joy of life

Feel the wakefulness of all the senses while enjoying the simplicity of life during your Cook Islands holiday.



The Breakfast... sense the good flavours


Fruit tastes better if it comes from the region. We are constantly striving to offer you as many seasonal products from the gardens of Aitutaki as possible. Breakfast is an ever changing event as not all fruits are always available. We continue to find new, sustainable products of good quality from the other islands. For coffee lovers we offer freshly ground coffee roasted in Rarotonga and delivered to Etu Moana by plane. Our bread is baked fresh on Aitutaki and standard breakfast staples include cereals, yoghurts, jams, a variety of cheeses, eggs, waffles and obviously fresh Coconut to drink and eat – taken from the tree and prepared the very same morning.

Please inform us about any dietary requirements when making your reservation.



the Honesty bar… Enjoy a cocktail of your own


Again. It’s all about indulgence. Next to the secluded pool, surrounded by volcanic rocks and lush tropical vegetation is our honesty bar. Contemplate precious moments of the here and now. Take your time.     





One of the simple luxuries we offer at Etu Moana is the pristine, purified, high quality drinking water. Pure and healthy. The rain is filtered by the clean air of the vast Pacific Ocean. Aitutaki drinking water is nature’s present to all of us and it is with great pride that we provide it in every villa!




Contentedness. Warm, crystal clear water gently touches your skin. You look over the reflection in the sea. A romantic treat close to your villa.



The Polynesian In-Villa massage... feel the sustainable effect

Relax and unwind on the privacy of your verandah. During your massage, you will experience healing on an emotional and spiritual level as well as a physical one. Afterwards a balance and a sense of well-being of body, mind and spirit will transpire.



The Activities... gain new physical and mental strength

The lagoon awakens your senses to something you have never seen before and so does this small island.

Water lovers can spend the entire day out exploring Aitutaki’s beautiful lagoon. The turquoise colours are incredible. Snorkeling gear, kayaks and stand-up paddling boards (SUPs) are free. Day cruises or private lagoon charters, diving, deep sea fishing, bone fishing, catamaran sailing and kitesurfing can be organizied. 

Land Lovers will recharge their batteries by discovering Aitutaki’s lush green land with its remote little villages. You have the choice of free Mountain or Cruisers bikes. Cars and scooter rentals are available on request. Walk to Mount Maunga Pu at sunrise, and get rewarded with a breathtaking bird's view over the silhouettes of the island and the lagoon, while observing how time follows the rhythm of night and day.



The culture... See the island's enduring custom 

A vibrant island night is a capturing experience. Sense the hypnotic beating of drums and admire the grace of the talented dancers from Aitutaki breathing life into the old Polynesian stories.
