We stayed here for 3 nights in April this year to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary, towards the end of a 3 month world trip staying in a variety of accommodation in many different countries. This is an experience like no other and very difficult to write up. You feel instantly part of the family as you arrive by speedboat...

Akaiami Paradise is, in our opinion, not just the most beautiful, but also the most exclusive place to stay in Aitutaki. Located on a remote motu in the lagoon, Akaiami is the site where the coral route flights had a short stopover in the 1950s. The Marsters family has rebuilt the lodge on the site of the coral route terminal,...

After our 4-day stay at Akaiami Paradise, my heart ached at the thought of leaving. I wish we could have skipped the Pacific Resort in Raro and spend another week at Akaiami instead. If you're the Four Seasons type who travel to wallow in luxury, then this place is not for you. But if you detest group tours, if you...

We were at the Akaimi Lodge for one week as part of our honeymoon in 2006. I will not write a long review because it isn't necessary. The place is absolutely fantastic!

Aikaimi is a little motu in the Aitutaki Lagoon, Cook Islands. It is a paradise.
