First the niggly bits: My mother in law and I bought $20 of internet date to enable us to be in contact with my husband, who was overseas. It was definitely not worth it as the 8nternet did not work for most of the time, something the staff at reception who sold it to us was well aware. At the...

Kia Orana, Firstly let me apologise for the management of your check out process - this certainly could have been handled better - while our policy is to check out at 10am - we should have checked with housekeeping to ensure they can turn rooms around for next guests. With regard to internet access we have had issues for the...

We loved our bungalow with its deep verandah and view to the sea. It was spotlessly clean and we found all the staff very helpful and friendly. The free foot treatment was wonderful and my husband decided to have a back massage as a result which was great. Our scooters and lagoon trip were arranged efficiently and quickly. The food...

What a wonderful resort, helpful, smiling and sincere staff. Beautiful, clean, stylish accommodation. Great food at the restaurant. We stayed as a group for a yoga retreat and I'm still pinching myself I was even on the paradise island.

Just had our second stay here and once again did not disappoint. The lovely Nane greeted us at the airport and made us feel like we were coming home again. Our room was ready early and we were welcomed by the reception and also by Nick the hotel manager. A nice touch when we got to our room was the...

Ok we stayed 18 days, yes 18 days on a single island, It was great diving snorkelling getting to know the locals and understand how people on the island live. The staff at Tamanu were exceptional, Nick's front of house staff were always helpful and made accommodations to any request we had (i.e. some funky ways to pay the bill)...

If you're looking for an exciting time don't go to Aitutaki however if you want a peaceful, relaxing time then this is the place for you. Our welcome at Aitutaki airport was very warming and we loved the leis. As we were early we luckily didn't have to wait long for our beach front unit. Our unit was spacious and...

Aitutaki was the most beautiful place I've visited in my life, hence the title of the review- I feel like I could have stayed in a shack and still had a wonderful time. Luckily, Tamanu Beach was a fantastic experience. To get one thing out of the way right away- yeah, from a US perspective at least, the room is...

We booked before leaving home on the internet the Sunday barbecue & sunset night and Thursday Island night and received an email from Tamanu confirming our bookings.

We had already stayed at Tamanu in February 2016, so coming back again, I was slightly apprehensive about just how special Aitutaki would feel again. Happy to report that the "wow " factor was still there. The views from the resort beach of the lagoon are still breath taking and the lagoon day trip to the smaller islands was as...
