4. Muri Beach Resort
An intimate resort on the shores of Muri Beach, Muri Beach Resort offers 20 self-contained villas and apartments scattered among spacious gardens.

The central pool, barbecue area and beachfront deck, however, are always there for get-togethers. Muri Beach Resort is also an eco-resort, operating completely off the grid.

5. Etu Moana Boutique Beach Villas
An adults-only boutique resort with a sustainable ethos, no wonder Etu Moana Boutique Beach Villas is one of Aitutaki’s most-sought resorts. Another part of the appeal might also be the 500Mb of free WiFi available for guests. What we think you might be more attracted to, however, are other inclusions, such as self-catering facilities, a swimming pool, beach access and dining options on-site. You can also explore the island guilt-free on the accommodation’s e-scooters or the lagoon using the SUP boards and kayaks available.

Other inclusions are the complimentary transfers, a fruit basket on arrival, a starter pack for breakfast and a “starter voucher for the WiFi”.
