Very Comfortable chalet with stunning location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Nov 17, 2019
Stayed 8 nights and it was not long enough. Mark is a brilliant host with a wealth of information and daily help with bookings. The beach has great snorkeling and is right there! Wonderful to sit on the porch and watch the waves. Mark’s recommended lagoon trips were amazing with a huge variety of fish and birds. Swimming with large Giant Trevally and a monster Hump Headed Wrass ( called The Emperor) was awesome. Also saw Eagle Rays and a huge Moray Eel.
Loved the lively singing at the Christian Church on Sunday.
Zipping around on a scooter was easy transport.
Thanks to Mark for enhancing our visit.

Kia Orana David and Mary,
Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your time with us. The scooter certainly wasn't a norton but you still had fun.
The lagoon certainly is an amazing place.
When you want to escape Vancover then you know where to come.

Thank you, Mark, for helping to make our stay at beautiful Amuri Sands just perfect. We had a 5 night stay, but how I wish we had decided to spend longer on beautiful Aitutaki at Amuri Sands. Nothing can compare to the serenity and beauty of this place. There are two self-contained units, located on their very own immaculate and private beach, studded by tall coconut palms, with stunning views across the Lagoon to the reef. It's just heaven on earth. The units are spotlessly clean, and have everything you need. Mark is the perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble and he helped us on a daily basis, booking Lagoon trips, arranging for scooter hire, and very kindly taking us to the local shops when we first arrived. It really was a memorable stay and we will be back. Thank you so much Mark and see you again, next year we hope!

Room tip: Both units are equally good

Thank you for your review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us.
Most travellers wish that they had stayed longer here and shorter in Rarotonga, as long as those people prefer the relaxed atmosphere that Aitutaki has to offer.
Hopefully see you next year.

A big thank you to Mark at Amuri Sands for making out family holiday amazing. His 2 x units where perfect for our needs, clean and tidy with an outstanding view out over the lagoon. Mark was very helpful with advice about Aitutaki, booking tours for us, getting our scooters sorted. He went out of his way and nothing was a problem. We had the most relaxing time ever and are already planning our next trip. Thanks again Mark, we will be in touch about staying at Amuri Sands on our next trip.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review - always appreciated. So glad the spear fishing was a success for you and young Joe getting a parrot fish. The two units work well for family and friends as you have the place to yourself.
Look forward to seeing you again.
Take care Hagan, Haley, Joe and Millie

We spent 5 lovely days at Amuri Sands.
What a fantastic spot, the view is amazing!
The units are cute and wonderfully clean and tidy.
Mark is a fantastic host, he helped with scooter hire and gave great advice on tours and where to eat. This was super helpful as it was our first time to beautiful Aitutaki.
The units are lovely, though I would say that the beds are perfect for people who enjoy a firm supportive mattress.
Everything was great in the unit...Good cooking facilities, nice shower, good drinking water, table and chairs on the deck to enjoy the view... Perfect for a lovely break in paradise
Thank you Mark for a lovely time at your beautiful spot on an amazing island

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review.

After several visits to Rarotonga you decided to take the plunge and see our little paradise, as do a lot of people, and I gather it won't be your last.

So glad you enjoyed your stay, even though the weather was against you on some days.



Until next time Kia Manuia

We had a wonderful time at Amuri Sands during our world trip with 3 children. Mark is a great host, always available for questions, helpful and very sympathetic. Everything is uncomplicated. The cottages are great, equipped with everything you need and really big enough. The price is much cheaper than in the hotels nearby, but Mark has the same beach :-) The ocean is directly in front of the door, nobody in front of you and it is simply wonderful. We absolutely recommend staying there. It is worth every hour and every dollar. Thank you :-)

It was a pleasure having you all stay with us and thank you for your review.
It certainly is relaxing having the lagoon at your doorstep and the sound of the reef in the distance - a good way to unwind.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday before returning back to Germany and work.

I had a wonderful time in Aitutaki. I only stayed for three nights but Mark helped me to make the most of it: He organised a bike for me, my diving session and a lagoon tour. Moreover, he gave recommendations about places to eat and other activities to do on the island.
The unit and its surrounding is carfefully maintained. The unit itself is very clean, spacious and well equipped.
Thank you again Mark for your help! I left Aitutaki with nothing but the best memories!

Thank you for your review.

You certainly made the most of your short stay with us. You managed to get in a dive, lagoon trip and go to the local church on Sunday. Also watched a rugby league match between Aitutaki and Rarotonga.

Enjoy your trip back to Switzerland.
