We had a great stay at aututaki escape. We had a choice between this and the Pacific resort and decided to opt for the escape. Good thing we did. We avoided the crowds and had a beautiful private view and access to the beach. Thomas, Lizzie, and Mene also provide a personal touch

A beautiful place with fantastic views and staff/owners that go the extra mile! Even when their renovations interfered with the kitchen they sent us to a local cafe for a free breakfast. We stayed 5 nights and loved every minute of it.

We are spending our honeymoon in January 2017 at Aitutaki Escape. We're hoping to get some info. Regarding money exchange. Is it recommended we do this prior to arrival or is it easy enough to do this after we arrive? Do we need adapters for the electrical outlets. We are traveling from the U.S and I realize the plugs are different. Any tips on things we should be sure and pack or things we shouldn't miss out on would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any advice you have!
Kia Orana Sarah . On the money exchange , if your plans include time in Rarotonga, you will get a better exchange rate if you do this after arrival there . Otherwise , exchange before you arrive with your bank in the U.S. You can exchange with our bank here in Aitutaki as well. We are on 240v here as far as electricity so we suggest you bring adapters for the outlets . We highly suggest you pre-book some of your excursions , like lagoon cruise. island night dinners & scuba diving. If you can email us direct we also can plan to provide any special items you may wish stocked in your villa . We are a small island and then to run out of things many times , so send us a list of grocery items and you can pay for those on arrival ... Just bring sun lotion and mosquito protection...other than that we look forward to your visit with us very soon ... Kind regards, Tumai .
