Resort style Aitutaki
Aitutaki is the quintessential tropical island escape with sandy beaches, turquoise waters and one of the world's most beautiful coral lagoons. The majority of the available hotels ideally positioned on the waterfront, offering travellers the opportunity to absorb the beautiful views and that laidback island lifestyle.
Luxury accommodation is readily available with a number of small resort-style hotels providing premium comfort at the water's edge. The Aitutaki Escape is an extra exclusive stay, offering just three villas with private courtyards and pools. The Pacific Resort Aitutaki also offers luxury accommodation with an inviting infinity edge pool overlooking the ocean.
Aitutaki hospitality with low costs
Experiencing the beauty of the island doesn't have to mean breaking the bank. There are a number of hotels and local inns with quality service, fantastic beachfront locations and reasonable prices. The Paradise Beach Lodges are charming bungalows on the waterfront with mid range pricing and easy access to swimming and snorkelling. Scooter rentals are also available to zip around the island.
If lower costs are your priority, accommodation such as the Amuri Guesthouse offer room rentals at great rates. Providing friendly, personalised service, this guesthouse is close to the beach as well as a number of other local facilities. This includes general stores and cafes.
A short stay in Aitutaki
Don't worry if you only have a night or two to spend in Aitutaki as it is easy to get the most out of your time here. The island is small and easily navigated, which means you can quickly take in all the land-based sites, leaving more time for fun below the surface of the water.
Accommodation along the north-western portion of the water is best for snorkelling. This also happens to be close to the airport for quick getaways. Etu Moana is a 3.5-star stay on this side of the island, providing waterfront villas with ocean views. Snorkelling equipment is available as are airport transfers.
