Large spacious private luxury villa on the lagoon

Pros: The villa's privacy, private pool and location. Handy to all island activities if you have own transport. Most will pick you up from the villa if not.
Cons: Not much to improve except the villas are starting to show a little wear and tear in certain areas. Incessant mosquitoes are a pain.
Location: Airport is three minutes away. Shops are three to five minute drive. Lagoon cruises and fishing trips can be booked from your room.
The Aitutaki Escape villas are found in a stunningly beautiful South Pacific island location set among the palms on the edge of the lagoon. It is a couples only luxury retreat. The villas each has its own private coral-walled pool on one side and the Aitutaki lagoon on the other. The wood frame and palm roofed villa has that rustic island charm everyone looks for and, whilst showing a little wear hear and there, is well-maintained and importantly is cleaned and tidied every day (except for Sundays). The villa is very roomy with all the mod-con appliances you will need in a serviced apartment. Thankfully, air-conditioning is available in the lounge and bedroom for those hot days or when you need to retreat from the mosquitoes. Breakfast is served in-room everyday (including Sundays) and is all you'd need to start your day. The Escape operates a small restaurant on-site around the reception but booking well in advance is a must as it can be closed if no bookings are made. The menu served is simply first class. The staff were always incredibly friendly and helpful on everything. On top of the great villa, the best things were the view, the pool, the location and ultimately the privacy - perfect for couples.

lacked fresh air flow. Thousands of mosquitoes.

Pros: the staff
Cons: Air flow and mosquito eradication
Because of the mosquito problem we had to keep the doors closed as there were no fly screens on them.
