Tamanu Beach Resort

Tamanu Beach Resort is owned and operated by the Henry Family of Aitutaki. Nestled among tropical gardens are 23 Polynesian style bungalows - all no more than a stone’s throw from the beach. From the moment you arrive you will feel the warmth of Aitutaki, as Aunty Nane welcomes you at the airport with flowers and their natural island greeting of “Kia Orana”. The lagoon in front of the resort is a snorkellers paradise. The beachside restaurant exudes a casual open-air feel with stunning sunset views and the menu provides a taste of Aitutaki in every dish, with fresh locally caught fish a “must try” during your visit. Take home some treasured memories of Aitutaki.

From the moment you are fetched at the airport you are made to feel welcome ! The hotel is stylishly homely. The room we were in (101) was newly renovated. Outdoor shower, indoor shower, double basins, huge bedroom, dressing room/kitchenette, patio with table and chairs. We were right next to the beautiful pool and a stones throw from the beach. The food was fantastic with wonderful BBQ and Cultural evenings.

The good things about Tamanu Beach: the bungalows are realy spacious with a beautiful verandah. The beach is one of the best on the west coast of the island. The entertainment on Thursday's island night was delightful and the suckling pig at the buffet was divine. It is a lovely place for total relaxation and enjoying what Aitutaki is rightfully famous for. I would come back there any time!

Just had our second stay here and once again did not disappoint. The lovely Nane greeted us at the airport and made us feel like we were coming home again. Our room was ready early and we were welcomed by the reception and also by Nick the hotel manager. I have looked at the other resorts on the island and sure there are others that do certain things as well or better. There are resorts that are more lavish but unfortunately overstated, and there are wonderfully traditional resorts that don't provide enough luxury, but you will not find a better complete package than Tamanu beach resort.

Wir waren 5 Tage auf Aitutaki im Tamanu Beach. Das Resort & Aitutaki waren für meine Frau und mich ein gelebter Traum. Die Anlage ist absolut Top, das Personal super freundlich und stets um den Gast bemüht. Man fühlt sich einfach nur wohl und vor allem willkommen. Die Wärme der Insel hat sich offensichtlich auf das Gemüt seiner Bewohner gelegt. Die Lagune, direkt vor unserem Beachfront-Bungalow lässt einfach alles um sich herum vergessen, genauso wie man sich das von den Postkarten her vorstellt. Man geht in das Wasser und schon kann man bunte Fische und sonstiges Getier beobachten. An Land muss man das Atoll auf jeden Fall mittels Scooter erkunden, einfach nur schön. Auf keinen Fall verpassen darf man die Inselnacht im Resort, wo es ein temperamentvolles polynesisches Programm gibt, was einfach nur Spaß macht. Das Restaurant/Küche sind sehr gut. Alles was wir gegessen haben war super. Einzig an das tropische Frühstück muss man sich als Mitteleuropäer gewöhnen .
