Pacific Resort Aitutaki5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
As people that travel quite frequently, I must say that the Island of Aitutaki and more specifically, Pacific Resort Aitutaki is without doubt the most spectacular tropical destination we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Our beach villa was beautifully appointed and very comfortable with a view to die for. All the Resort staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. From lazing in the hammock to kayaking the incredible lagoon to learning how to make Ika Mata, there is something for everyone. The food in the restaurant is top notch, delicious fresh produce and awesome seafood. I can't recommend this little piece of paradise highly enough!
i am so glad that we had the opportunity to stay at this resort! The staff are brilliant, the attention to detail means as a customer everything is seamless, and you get to have the perfect experience. The rooms are very spacious, with everything that you could want at hand. The balcony means you can have a quiet space to enjoy the sunset. The bathrooms are lavish with great water pressure. I highly recommend the spa, Erena is fabulous! At his place was a true gem! Thanks David for running a very tight ship! Your hard work was very much appreciated!
The location of our individual beach hut at the Pacific Resort was fabulous with just a few short steps from our verandah to swimming with tropical fish Everything was provided including snorkle,goggles. lots of towels and mosquito repellent just in case the rooms were large and well appointed Our verandah was large and undercover from the tropical sun However for sun worshipers we had two beach lounges in front of our hut which could used in the sun or shade We also had our own double hammock Staff were friendly and helpful in my case this was very welcome as they had to organise a trip to hospital on day one following a knee injury . Without any fuss they organised a doctor to see me then provided a car to drive me to hospital and a wheelchair from the vehicle to the emergency room and for the duration of my stay. On NYE they presented a degustation meal and the Canadian chef excelled himself with a five star meal and matching beverages and at a reasonable price We were greeted at the airport with a lei of flowers and then at Reception in the hotel by GM David he was also there to farewell us.. This resort is well run with wonderful food and surroundings It would be a place I'd recommend to anyone interested in a Pacific Island holiday We arent usually into Cultural Nights but this one an exception....lots of fun and drums with dancing and again a menu to match Aitatuki is indeed a piece of paradise
My husband & I stayed at The Pacific Resort - Aitutaki in November 2016. Due to ill health last year I am only just getting around to writing this review. I would just like to advise that this resort is truly amazing, from the time we arrived and were greeted at reception and until we left we were treated like royalty. Attention to detail and full guest service was met every day. The resort manager Dave at the time was very attentive and always greeted and chatted to all guests. It is a very relaxed atmosphere here, The food was amazing, and very well presented whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We stayed in an ultimate beach front bungalow and couldn't be happier with the room, cleanliness and position of our room. On our arrival they had named a cocktail of the day after us. It is a nice touch that they welcome each and every guest on their daily news letter and also farewell them on their departure. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was attended to promptly and without a hiccup. Like I said, i cannot fault this resort on anything and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to travel to Aitutaki that being couples and families.
What a wonderful place! Beautiful resort on a lovely beach with excellent snorkelling just off the beach. Take reef walking shoes. Well run, well kept and nothing was too much trouble. Nice breakfast and good menu selections. Villas are spacious, comfortable and private. Direct beach access (with hammock). Lots of activities and wonderful staff to help with them. Well kept gardens and nice pool area. There are cultural activities daily, which are a nice touch, and not over done (cooking classes, making floral headdresses, dancing etc.) The lagoon is stunning, and a day trip (organised through the resort) is a must. Scuba diving not highly rated (Big groups, not well run). Also, a word of caution; if you go up to the lookout on the mountain take plenty of mosquito repellent! They were everywhere!! View well worth it, though. Thankfully not the same problem in this beautiful resort. Thanks to David, Jessica, Moira, the cats and all the team for a wonderful stay. We will return!
We absolutely loved this place! Everything about it was wonderful! The staff, room, food, drinks, pool and the overall feel of the entire resort is amazing. We were spoiled from the minute we arrived. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!
We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Aitutaki with family. This was a wonderful vacation, and Pacific Resort is now our favorite overall getaway in the world (taking overall from Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, which was our previous favorite... reasons why below). The staff was super friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help us out. The rooms were absolutely fantastic... we had a premium two bedroom suite, which had plenty of space for the four of us and wonderful access to the great beach. The rooms were well-appointed and clean, with up to date amenities and excellent housekeeping. Internet was available for a fee. Speeds were okay; typical for the Cook Islands... not great, but reasonable for email and some web browsing. The property amenities and location were good. The beach was fantastic, with live coral, lots of fish, and excellent snorkeling. Free kayaks, paddleboards, snorkeling gear, etc. were provided. There was a very nice pool. The restaurant was good and the chef made us a great custom meal (we are vegetarians). The included breakfast was good... food options were very tasty, though the selection was limited over 5 days. For a luxury property, it would be nice to see a great selection of food. Overall, a wonderful stay at a great property. This is now our new favorite. Our favorite used to be Soneva Fushi in The Maldives. Both have a similar vibe. Soneva has more to do on the island and has much better food options, but the beach and sea at Aitutaki are much better than the Maldives (no Coral bleaching). If the food options could be increased at Pacific Resort, this would blow away the competition, in our book. Despite that one shortcoming, this is still a new favorite and I'm sure we'll be back!
We stayed for 8 nights over Christmas and had an amazing experience. The dining is excellent, both in the restaurant and in the more casual cafe. Our accommodation was first class, we felt as though we had our own villa on a private island, it is so private and secluded. if you want to escape the crowds and get away from it all, this is the place! So peaceful and luxurious, we can't wait to come back. Even the snorkeling in the lagoon out front is amazing. Staff are all lovely and the service is great. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed our stay here. The accommodations are excellent. The manager David goes out of his way to ensure guests are looked after and any problems are sorted out. Island night buffet was a highlight. Great staff we particularly loved Robyn, Baldwin and especially Rose .
A beautiful place to be. Accommodation, Food, Staff all excellent. As a boutique hotel (27 Rooms) the Pacific Resort Aitutaki is a quiet, easy going place with plenty of space. Our Rooms were well appointed, situated on the beach, and serviced daily. Nothing was too much trouble. It was your choice to do a lot or nothing or whatever. We have been to many islands over the years this was one of the best.
