After having been to pretty much every corner of this planet I have to say that Aitutaki is the most beautiful place I have ever seen and Matriki is the perfect place to be in such a paradise.

Our bungalow was a lagoon view one, hammock in front of this. Open top shower under the palm trees is fun. Lisa and Paul are very friendly and helpful, and the bbq nights with them were so good. One of the best snorkeling place in front of the place, so u can hang around and snorkling there all day long.... More

There wasn't availability when we went to Aitutaki, but I could tell from my correspondence with Lisa, that she is a conscientous and fun manager.

We cannot say how much we loved Matriki Beach Huts. Paul and Lisa have the best place on the island because it lacks the pretension that exists in so many resort style accommodation.The snorkelling trips and island hopping was Devine.
