Aitutaki, Cook Islands.

Kia Orana

Inano Beach Bungalows is a beachfront property catering for a growing "Eco Tourism" sector with our seven self catering stand alone units, one absolute beachfront and five Partial lagoon-view garden bungalows and one garden family two bedroom bungalow. The Partial lagoon-view garden bungalows are laid out in a semi-circle to provide some views of the Aitutaki natural marine reserve and world class eco tourist attraction, the Aitutaki lagoon right on our door step.

We are on the southern tip of Aitutaki on the sheltered inland side of the lagoon, facing west with stunning views looking across the turquoise waters of the lagoon towards the main bulk of Aitutaki Island. Inano Beach is a white sandy all tide swimming beach and is a Cook Islands Tourism Accredited property.

Inano Beach is locally owned and built by us, the landowners. We live on site to help you enjoy your holiday. Our bungalows offer peace and privacy and are ideal for honeymooners or those seeking an intimate location with their loved ones.

There are three excellent restaurants within walking distance (300 metres).”

Our Thoughts on Inano Beach Bungalows Aitutaki
Inano Beach Bungalows self-rates at 3 Star.  Whilst we are normally reticent to offer 3 Star-rated properties, we are more than happy to make Inano available as an option for our customers due to its location and its good value for money on Aitutaki.  The property is located right on a white-sand beach, facing west and overlooking the magnificent Aitutaki inner lagoon towards the raised land on the other side of the lagoon.

Some of the family members, who own the property, live on-site and provide the guest services which include tour reservations and room servicing daily (excluding Sunday) and they are always available to assist their guests.  The property has shaded sun-loungers on the beach and a feature of the beach in this location is that it is swimmable at all tides due to a large swimming hole which extends the entire length of the beach at this point. Kayaks are available and this is a fantastic spot to launch a kayak and explore the lagoon.

Guests staying at Inano Beach Bungalows can walk a pleasant 200 metres along the road or the beach to the beachfront Aitutaki Village  Resort Restaurant or 300 metres along to the Boatshed Bar & Grill or 400 metres to the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort Restaurants.  Several of the other Aitutaki restaurants offer pickup/drop-off service.  The departure point for Aitutaki’s terrific Lagoon Cruises is just around the point, well within walking distance. Naturally you will want to explore the rest of the island and scooter and/or car hire can be easily arranged.

Consider Inano Beach Bungalows if you are seeking a laid-back and well-priced beachfront property with basic but comfortable bungalows and a self-catering facility from which to explore and enjoy this magnificent island and its lagoon.

Your Accommodation Options
The entire property comprises 1 Beachfront Bungalow, 5 Lagoon View/Garden Bungalows and 1 Garden Family Bungalow.  All are spacious and open-plan with a kitchen and a bathroom.  The accommodation is not air-conditioned as this is not really necessary in this location which catches the prevailing breezes; every Bungalow has a ceiling fan and good flow-through ventilation.  The open-plan kitchens are equipped with an electric cook-top, under-counter size fridge, microwave oven, tea and coffee making facilities and a good range of kitchen utensils. Each Bungalow has a small dining table and chairs and a sofa together with the Queen Bed.  The décor is pleasant with light-coloured tile flooring, a vaulted ceiling and restful woven bamboo wall panels.  There is a nice covered and furnished patio with a timber plank floor out front.  Bungalows are raised up a little off the ground to enable the breezes to flow beneath the living/patio areas.
