Paradise

Aitutaki itself is paradise, beautiful weather and picturesque. Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa is also beautiful but VERY expensive. Thank you for the upgrade to the overwater bungalow, it was gorgeous and we felt very spoilt. In saying that the resort is expensive, all of Aitutaki is expensive for accommodation and it is simply something that has to be accepted if you want to visit and stay. Absolutely LOVED the place, staff and everything about it.
