Decided to try out Vaikoa because of all the great reviews. And yet we were greatly surprised by what an amazing place this is!
The lodge is run by Mama and Junior, who are literally ready to help and assist with ANYTHING and are super generous (Junior heard we were planning on buying some fresh fish, so he gave us a half kilo of freshly caught tuna. And didn't accept anything in return! Also, my flip-flop ripped just before arriving to Aitutaki, but instead of buying a new pair Mama just found me a pair in her house).
Staying here was an amazing experience as we really had the opportunity to feel the authentic side of the island, living next to the family. I can't stress how much of a added bonus this is, but when we left after 6 days, we felt like we were saying goodbye to long time friends.
The lodge itself is a great budget option, with on of the best snorkel spots literally 10 metres from your front door. 2 kayaks are also available for no extra cost, at any time of day.
Suitable for all types of travellers,
this is THE place to stay in Aitutaki.More
