Paradise is the best way to describe this beautiful serene place. The units have their own slice of beach, and a beautiful pool as well. Wonderful facilities, natural timbers, & stone featured through out the unit. The hosts are fantastic, and having dinner under the stars is just one of the many things they are most willing to arrange for you, nothing is too much trouble. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Simply bliss.

Large spacious private luxury villa on the lagoon
The Aitutaki Escape villas are found in a stunningly beautiful South Pacific island location set among the palms on the edge of the lagoon. It is a couples only luxury retreat. The villas each has its own private coral-walled pool on one side and the Aitutaki lagoon on the other. The wood frame and palm roofed villa has that rustic island charm everyone looks for and, whilst showing a little wear hear and there, is well-maintained and importantly is cleaned and tidied every day (except for Sundays). The villa is very roomy with all the mod-con appliances you will need in a serviced apartment. Thankfully, air-conditioning is available in the lounge and bedroom for those hot days or when you need to retreat from the mosquitoes. Breakfast is served in-room everyday (including Sundays) and is all you'd need to start your day. The Escape operates a small restaurant on-site around the reception but booking well in advance is a must as it can be closed if no bookings are made. The menu served is simply first class. The staff were always incredibly friendly and helpful on everything. On top of the great villa, the best things were the view, the pool, the location and ultimately the privacy - perfect for couples.

Perfect location, luxury accommodation
We stayed at Aitutaki Escape for 4 nights in September 2017. The location is very private, and the accommodation was perfect. We've stayed in many beach villas across the Pacific, and Aitutaki Escape is probably our favorite, mainly because of it's stunning location, the 100% privacy, the sunsets, and the standard of accommodation. Our hosts (Thomas and his family) were there to answer any of our questions, and provide guidance when we needed it, but at the same time providing us with privacy.

lacked fresh air flow. Thousands of mosquitoes.
Because of the mosquito problem we had to keep the doors closed as there were no fly screens on them.
