We stayed in Villa 1 for three nights on our way to Aitutaki and absolutely loved it. With the private swimming pool on one side and the ocean on the other it was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped should you wish to self cater. We liked the fact that villas are not serviced

Kia Orana PGtravellers. Thank you for your questions. Reef shoes are indeed supplied, along with flippers and snorkelling gear. The closest convenience store is an easy 10 minute walk away, and the more substantial supermarket is a 15 minute drive away. We would recommend boiling water before drinking, although we do have a filtered water station on site for your use. We hope this information helps, and we look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Cook Islands. Meitaki Ma'ata (thank you) Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa
