AITUTAKI ESCAPE
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Aitutaki Escape, Amuri Beach, Aitutaki
Aitutaki Escape is a unique property on Aitutaki with its up-market beachfront one and two bedroom villas, each one offering a private swimming pool in a walled and private courtyard, an unparalleled beachfront location, a full kitchen for those occasions when guests decide to self-cater as well as on-site Rumours Café all topped-off with exceptional staff and management. 

Luxurious Aitutaki Escape is located near the northern tip of Aitutaki only 2 minutes-drive from the airport. Facing north-west over Aitutaki’s outer lagoon and capturing the wonderful sunsets, the 3 spacious villas front a long white-sand beach. Aitutaki Escape provides high quality beach-front accommodation and privacy in a secluded setting.

From the moment you arrive at Aitutaki Escape, you realise that you are in for a very special experience.  The entrance to each individual villa is through a private gate into the high-walled courtyard of the villa. The wooden-decked courtyard seamlessly flows into the villa proper with its big open-plan living area and separate bedroom/s.  From the living area, each villa opens to the beach via another deck which becomes a boardwalk out over the beach ending almost at the water’s edge.

This whole beachfront deck and boardwalk set-up is, to us, a great example of how well everything about Aitutaki Escape has been planned with the comfort and convenience of guests in mind.  In the afternoon or evening, after a dip in your private swimming pool or spa pool, or having showered prior to dining out, you can wander barefoot out over the beach via your individual beach boardwalk, watch the sunset, cocktail in hand, from your own over-beach deck, then after the sunset display is over, return to your private villa without a grain of sand on your feet! (unless you step off the deck or boardwalk of course).

One of the many recent improvements made at Aitutaki Escape is the opening of a terrific little exclusive air-conditioned café/restaurant on-site known as “Rumours.” Rumours is open to Aitutaki Escape guests as well as the general public:
Breakfast: Daily excluding Sunday at 8:00am
Lunch: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 11:30am
Dinner: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday 6:30 to 8:00pm.
The Continental Breakfast delivered to your Villa each day, may be substituted for breakfast at Rumours if preferred. 
The Café offers a personal dining experience by only allowing up to a maximum of 12 guests at any one time. Should any in-house guest wish to order from the café outside normal operating days, (for example, dinner on a Tuesday), guests can pre-arrange this with the café in advance, and meals will be prepared and delivered to your villa.

Meal Plans Offered:
Half Board: Cooked breakfast and lunch
Full Board: Cooked breakfast and lunch with a choice of either a 2-course or a 3-course dinner.  The Meal Plans can be pre-purchased through Our Specialists as part of your complete Cook Islands holiday package.
