We stayed here for 3 nights in April this year to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary, towards the end of a 3 month world trip staying in a variety of accommodation in many different countries. This is an experience like no other and very difficult to write up. You feel instantly part of the family as you arrive by speedboat...

We would like to thank Pa, Mamaru and Dorn for making our dream wedding come true at Akaiami Paradise. Married under the palm tree arch made by Dorn and petfectly decorated by Mamaru while the sun shone couldn't have been any more idyllic for us. Also the wedding buffet was incredible. The lodge and it's history is incredible, candle lit...

Akaiami Paradise is, in our opinion, not just the most beautiful, but also the most exclusive place to stay in Aitutaki. Located on a remote motu in the lagoon, Akaiami is the site where the coral route flights had a short stopover in the 1950s. The Marsters family has rebuilt the lodge on the site of the coral route terminal,...

After our 4-day stay at Akaiami Paradise, my heart ached at the thought of leaving. I wish we could have skipped the Pacific Resort in Raro and spend another week at Akaiami instead. If you're the Four Seasons type who travel to wallow in luxury, then this place is not for you. But if you detest group tours, if you...

We stayed on AP for 3 nights from 11 September 2012. From the moment that owner Mama Ru Ru picked us up from Aitutaki Beach Villas - welcoming us with beautiful fresh gardenia laes from her own lush garden we were in heaven.

We were at the Akaimi Lodge for one week as part of our honeymoon in 2006. I will not write a long review because it isn't necessary. The place is absolutely fantastic! We were on our own for three days, only in the company of the inconspicuous Pare (the Island's keeper), and sporadic visits from his son sidney. They were...

Ok, I've been to Aitutaki SEVEN TIMES, so I know a bit about the place! Akaiami Paradise is absolutely unique. It is situated on the breathtakingly beautiful Akaiami motu (island), and is a 5 minute boat ride from the mainland across the amazing Aitutaki lagoon. I am literally going to struggle to describe it's beauty, so I'll try and sum...

Aikaimi is a little motu in the Aitutaki Lagoon, Cook Islands. It is a paradise. The beach is spectacular and the water is a still, warm bath with a friendly resident puffer fish who comes to visit from time to time. The accommodation is rustic and comprises a large lodge (on the site of the former TEAL Lodge), which has...
