|Set opposite Aitutaki's beautiful turquoise lagoon, Vaiorea Beach House boasts beautiful ocean views and direct beach access.|
The over water bungalow. The perfection of the island (is like a fantasy island from your imagination). It's so gorgeous, like heaven on earth!
Not much really :)
The location is stunning. This has to be the best spot on the island location wise. We swam every day in the lagoon and the resort pool and had a wonderful rest lazing under the coconut trees. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food and cocktails went down easily.
We enjoyed everything about our stay.
FOOD ETC TO EXPENSIVE NOT VALUE FOR MONEY COST FROM AIRPORT SHOULD BE FREE CAR INTO TOWN SHOULD BE FREE
Enjoyed being right on the lagoon, and the availability of kayaks, and paddle boards.
Wish they had more of a bar type atmosphere to eat casually at instead of the Restaurant. Staff a little unfriendly, like they almost didn't want to be there. Or maybe we were the wrong age bracket for the place.
Beautiful resort with over water bungalows.
Food is a bit pricey
Great location, stunning views, attentive staff, complementary events (fire show, fish feeding, welcome apero etc.)
Quite expensive, but worth it
This resort in our opinion was in the best location in Aitutaki, surrounded by the beautiful lagoon. The Beachfront bungalow was amazing, good breakfast, great range of water sports gear for free use. Nice people and overall very relaxing
Don't get trapped by the airport transfers, although there's no other option. But they pick you up and drop you off with no mention of the fee, and a sneaky $55 pp appears on your bill.
The resort is located in a lovely part of Aitutaki. The waters surrounding the island are an amazing colour and you can easily walk between many of the islands in the lagoon.
We arrived by car as we had stayed at another resort on Aitutaki. When we unloaded all our luggage the ferry driver and another staff member completely ignored us... They didn't help or even great us. When you are paying top prices you expect good service. The accommodation is average and I believe overpriced.
Could have expected a bit more for 5 star. Had money go missing from room.
Overwater bungalow was perfect! ... staff were courteous, friendly and helpful... grounds were well maintained... 'adults only' location for our honeymoon was perfect!
it rained part if the time... service for 6-course candlelight dinner took too long..
The private island is an awesome place. The room is generally nice.
Poorly managed, this place just tries to nickel and dime you. Most expensive food on Aitutaki and subpar at best, take the ferry off the island and go anywhere else that locals go. Facilities on resort therefore felt dead/empty as most smart people got outta there for food. Resort charges you fee if you take ferry (40 ft mind you) after 11pm, so you are hostage or you get nickeled and dimed. Resort is only place on Aitutaki that charged a service fee (4%) for using credit card. Front desk didn't give info on how resort operated, hours, and rooms lack a binder or any organized info on their facilities. How can you bill yourself as a 5-star resort with these short-comings?
Made our once in a lifetime experience just fabulous. Great location, amazing views, fabulous accomodation & oh so friendly staff.
We loved the location it is on a stunning lagoon.
The family felt the staff wern't as friendly or as helpfull as they should have been. I was really shocked at the terrible linen , the towels were dreadful infact my dogs towels are in better condition. the bed lined also had seen better days,very worn. The other annoyance was the breakfast didn't include a hot breakfast , this you had to pay for ! I feel when you are paying in excess of $500.00 a night these are important requirements.
Staff were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating in every way. We will definitely be back.
Restaurant could have had more fresh seafood
Loved our beachfront bungalow even though it was the cheapest option. Outdoor shower with view over the water amazing. Would choose the same next visit, don't see the need to pay extra for deluxe or overwater bungalows. Resort is the best place for swimming on Aitutaki
Food in restaurant average, wine list was poor and over priced. Having to pay expensive transfer ($55 for 2 for a 2km journey one way) to airport over the top considering the room rate at this resort and the fact that many other cheaper resorts on the island provide this service complimentary. Some staff excellent while others did not seem to want to be there and let them down.
The beautiful setting, quiet & relaxing.
The menu in the evenings was rather "heavey" lighter meal options would have been nice.
Can't beat the location
A bit on the expensive side but it is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean so you have to expect that
- absolutely stunning location
- majority of staff including front desk manager with terrible customer service for an accomodation of that price level - they were trying to charge 55 dollars for a five minute airport transfer
Beautiful accommodation on the beach.
Very corny music, meant to be romantic, but didn't work for me or my partner during our only dinner in Bounty Restaurant.
The resort is on the best lagoon and the hammocks and resort was lovely.
It was very expensive for what it was and the transfers were very expensive.
