Tamanu, your perfect south sea island stay!
Great location, beautiful beach and lovely accomodation. Staff made us feel welcome getting our room ready early and giving us a complimentary late checkout. Weekly island night was fun with great buffet and cultural entertainment. Bikes, paddle boards and kayaks are provided.

Lovely stay!
We spent 6 nights there recently. Great layout of bungalows, we did not have direct beach access but it certainly felt like we had! Recently refurbished bungalows are perfectly summarised by the hotel's motto - casual luxury. I have never had such a feeling that I'm staying in a luxurious hotel yet it feels very casual and laid back. The only thing that could use some improvement is the restaurant - food was good, with attentive service, but is not on par with general high quality feel of the hotel. Finally, reception staff was absolutely amazing taking great care of us. We have not used the day spa, so cannot opine.

The Perfect Retreat
Situated along a beautiful beach on amazing Aitutaki, Tamanu Beach offers a delightful and delicious escape. From the moment you’re greeted by the smiling staff you know your in good hands. Spend the day snorkeling in the crystal clear lagoon and then enjoy the sunset at the beach side restaurant featuring tasty local fare. You can even rent scooters right at the hotel and explore the postcard perfect Aitutaki. It’s Moorea 25 years ago, before the cruise ships, tourist buses, and pricey resorts. Relaxing & rare, the Tamanu Beach is the perfect retreat

Aitutaki is worth the distance.
Aitutaki is a wonderful island and well worth going the distance to visit. Tamanu Beach - Very good food - beautiful spacious room. (some service issues in getting our room hot water repaired and at time of bag pick up) but would definitely stay again if returning to Aitutaki. Had fantastic deep tissue massages in their spa facilities. Great to just swim and snorkel at their beach.

Friendly helpful staff in reception, mixed service however in restaurant. Room renovations only partly complete- much more TLC needed - but would stay again.

Beautiful place to stay, would love to stay again
The beach front unit was wonderful, felt very spoilt. Very spacious, clean and private. Would love to stay here again. Beach was lovely, however not many fish to be seen snorkelling from front of hotel.

Wonderful all too short stay
Great position. Immaculate well appointed room. Excellent restaurant & the morning breakfast buffet was a great start to the day. Very good snorkeling out the front. No hesitation in recommending this place and can see us returning.
