.We were here for three nights. The resort is excellent, and the restaurant very good. It is a lovely setting, with a great beach. We enjoyed snorkelling, even close to the shore there were lots of little fish and some coral.

Quiet peaceful and comfortable. Everything you want in a tropical beachfront holiday. The only downside was that the bedding was really quite hard... not just firm, but hard. Nothing a mattress topper couldn't fix

Tamanu beach has a beachside 60 seat Bar & Restaurant. We are open for breakfast lunch and dinner with a simple Island style menu. Our feature Island Nights every Thursday are a highlight of Aitutaki dining. Sunday is a relaxed family bbq buffet. The specials menu changes regularly with the freshest catch and seasonal fruits. We do pretty good coffee (getting better every day!) and our sunset cocktails are very tempting.
