Warm welcome from our lovely hosts set the scene for a wonderful time. Head for the bar to meet Violetta. A woman as warm and beautiful as her island ! Excellent food, welcoming and friendly staff make it the perfect place to relax and leave reality behind for a while. Can't wait to return.

We wanted a low keyed experience after 4 weeks of travel in Australia and New Zealand, and we were not disappointed. This resort is on a small motu a short hop from the main island and the airport is only 5 minutes away. They provide a ferry to get you and your luggage across to the motu, and the owners,...

This place was wonderful and unique. You are right in the lagoon and can swim and walk in the shallows, and kyake to other islands. They provide reef shoes which are helpful in certain parts but if you go to the tip of the island where the cabanas are, there is lots of beautiful soft sand. It is so shallow...

From the moment we arrived at Aitutaki, we began to relax and unwind! Our bungalow was amazing! Plenty of room and great facilities plus we all loved the enormous outside shower with its privacy! And the water was just metres from our front door! The people were amazing and so friendly! A bit of paradise on earth!

Kia Orana GillDan, Thank you for choosing to stay with us on our "Paradise Island" of Akitua.

I was a little concerned about some of the earlier reviews on here, but our whole time at Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa was perfect. It started by being greeted at the airport with a floral ei and drinking coconut, and just got better from there. The location is stunning! We stayed in an overwater bungalow which was amazing -...

We only had two nights at the Resort. The little boat that takes you to the motu (island that the resort is on), is cool. The resort is in a fantastic location right on the large lagoon. Our room was on the estuary side, but ask for a room on the lagoon side. The water is so unbelievably blue. We...

A welcome ei and chilled coconut water was a welcome start to our trip. Followed by a warm welcome at reception and a greeting from the resort managers made us feel like we were important.

Booking, pick up from the airport and check in all worked fine. However, we were given very little information on the resort as we were escorted to our room which is unusual. We had a so called over water bungalow, but actually it is only the balcony that is fully over the water, and the outlook was dominated by a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The only private island, adults only resort in the Cook Islands. It is the only Cook Islands resort to offer that invention of incurable romantics - the Overwater Bungalow. And it is the only resort on Aitutaki with a truly Polynesian flavour, so you can truly savour what the South Pacific is famous for. ... more   less
