We spent a week at Etu Moana. Staff is friendly and will help you to organize your perfect holiday, whether you intend to spend it sleeping in your veranda or exploring the beautiful lagoon. Villas are spacious and well organized. There is a (honesty) pool bar where you can make your own cocktails. Remember to sign the cocktails before drinking...

The hype was mega, and we were prepared for at least a small disappointment. But we were not in any way disappointed - quite the opposite. Etu Moana was everything it was advertised as being, and more. We were in Villa 9 - on the beach, which had an idyllic view of the lagoon, and was beautifully placed within the...

This was a really good choice. I stayed in Villa 8 which is considered a garden view. View of the garden it has. It also had a pretty good view of the reef and Pacific. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had them arrange a motor scooter and private snorkel trip. When the motor scooter didn't want to start...

If you are looking for idyllic paradise then this is the place for you. Stayed in a beachfront villa. Thankyou for the upgrade Kirsty. Really appreciated and kind of you. The rooms had everything you could have wanted and great air conditioning for those hot days. Villa's right on the beach are beautiful and if you can afford them I...

Everything is excellent about Etu Moana from the welcome with a garland and cooled coconut , to a guided tour explaining all the facilities, to the lovely room with outside shower (inside one as well) and balcony and to the staff who are friendly and helpful to deal with all queries and reservations. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast (included) by the...

We stayed at Etu Moana villa 6 during our 7day island visit as part of our honeymoon trip around the Pacific. Stayed the last week of January 2017. Everything from a smooth airport pick up to getting to the property and being greeted with fresh flower necklaces and coconut drinks, to being shown to our bungalow for the first time,...

We stayed for a week just before Christmas, in a beachfront villa. This is not a budget option (it is the most expensive accommodation we have ever stayed in!), but Etu Moana is not overpriced compared to some of the other more expensive options, which I didn't like as much as they were bigger resorts with less privacy. Things we...

This property fronts the beach and no doubt the rooms on the beach are the best. It stands somewhere between good and excellent and the people tip it into the excellent category.All staff have a smile.No doubt the ' island way' must have its challenges when you do the service.But here you do feel that rooms are cleaned well and...

Stayed here for almost 1 week in October with my wife. Based on Tripadvisor we expect a lot....it was even better than expected. The villas are perfect (we stayed in a beach view villa; great views!) with a huge veranda to relax on. Breakfast is simple but very good and service by staff is amazing. There is a relaxed vibe...

There's much that is lovely about Etu Moana. Don't feel you have to get a villa right on the beach as all the villas have a view - some are just set back further, they all face the sea and are staggered outwards in a large V. I thought the ones in the middle near the pool were ideal. We...
