What an incredible place! From the flight in, to the transfer with the famous TU, into the fantastic little bungalow spot. We were great by the lively marea, got a book and a beer and relaxed for the afternoon, finished with delicious dinner Marea and get staff were awesome, and the next day we did the day cruise ( highly recommended ) a sneaky little tour with the maestro TU and a great pork belly to finish. Thank you so much for your awesome hospitality and next time we'll be there longer. 😁😁😁
We stayed here with a small party of family and friends for our daughter's wedding. The "big day" and our stay were absolutely wonderful. They went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect and really looked after us all. Great people, great place, great food, great amenities. I totally recommend Aitutaki Village!
Our 4-night stay at the Aitutaki Village was magical. The location, right on the lagoon’s edge at Ootu Beach, was truly amazing. Although the location is a bit isolated from the main part of the island and the town (you’ll need transport of some kind), it is within easy walking distance were several restaurants, tour agencies, and rental agency. It was a great experience to just be able to step into the placid lagoon right from the property. Our unit, a free-standing bungalow, was one of 12 in the complex, surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens. It was roomy and airy with plenty of windows, all screened against the insects. We had a fridge and coffee making area as well as an AC (which we didn’t use.) There was no TV but I noted that the Vodafone Wifi hotspot coverage extended to our unit. There was also excellent 3G data coverage. The shower was great – plenty of hot water 24/7. Our host, Maria, was fantastic, organizing various tours and rentals and making us really feel at home there. The onsite restaurant was great, located right on the water’s edge. We ate all our breakfasts there which were basic but adequate – buffet style fruit, toast, yogurt, and muesli. For dinner, there was a limited menu, but all options were delicious and good value. There were a couple of kayaks and paddle boards there, free for guest use, and magical to take them onto the lagoon. Although free bicycle use was advertised, this is no longer the case and a bit of a disappointment, as we had to hire bicycles from Rinos over in town. Another disappointment was that although there were outdoor showers advertised for the units, only 2 of the units actually had outdoor showers. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend it to other travelers. We would stay here again without hesitation.…
The location was stunning. The staff were amazing - they went above and beyond helping us. Great having the restaurant/bar right there, kayaks and SUP to use and cruises leaving from the area. Very convenient.
Amazing hosts, went over and above to help us out and make our stay amazing. Perfect spot right on the beach. Really friendly and helpful staff - even delivered our restaurant dinner to us when a storm blew in! The restaurant has the most beautiful outlook onto the water so you can watch fish jumping, sunsets and all the activity on the water. Would definitely come back here to stay. We also did the Bishops day cruise associated with this accommodation which was pretty faultless - great crew who played live cook island music, good food, beautiful island visits and snorkelling.
