RANGINUI’S SUNSET AITUTAKI
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Ranginui’s Sunset, Aitutaki
A delightfully different little budget property, ideal for those seeking a simpler style of accommodation experience on delightful Aitutaki. The location is close to the northern tip of the island facing north-west ever the outer lagoon with the circling reef and ocean beyond.  Staying here you will be approximately halfway between the main township Arutanga and the various resorts dotted along the road between Ranginui’s Sunset and the town and the other main tourist area around Ootu Beach and island peninsular. 

The beach at this point of the coast outside Ranginui’s Sunset is pearly white and mainly deserted.  Guests at Ranginui’s Sunset enjoy the filtered view of the outer lagoon, the ocean and the beach through the beachfront palms and the beach sand comes right up to your balcony steps.  Even though you will enjoy the relative isolation from the crowds this property offers, you are not alone, as the owner/managers of the property live right next door and are always available for friendship, advice and assistance.  Furthermore, the sister property down at Ootu – Ranginui’s Retreat, welcomes guests to use their facilities anytime, including their swimming pool.   

Nothing on Aitutaki is too far away from Ranginui’s Sunset, but we do advise you (as we do when staying at most Aitutaki resorts and properties) to have pre-arranged transport to guarantee the best holiday ever on Aitutaki. A scooter-bike is a popular choice for locals and visitors and enables you to get around cheaply and comfortably vising the sights and shops during the day as well as providing you with a light at night when returning from a café or restaurant.

Stay for a week or two and REALLY unwind!

Minimum Stay Policy

Your Accommodation Options
Ranginui’s Sunset offers 3 clean and simple accommodation units.  Each is a stand-alone bungalow featuring a pleasant little roofed balcony deck raised up 3 steps from the sand to allow cooling breezes to circulate beneath. Each balcony has 2 steamer chair-style sun loungers facing the sunsets.  The bungalows are built in a row beside each other and screens on each balcony ensure privacy. There isn’t a huge difference in tariff between the two styles, but the two more expensive One Bedroom Bungalows do offer a better living experience, being equipped with a standing fridge/freezer in the kitchenette, a separate bedroom and a bigger lounge seating area with TV.  All three bungalows are fan cooled but a portable air-conditioning unit can be hired at reasonable charge, although the need for air-conditioning is mainly during the heat of the summer season December through March and then, mainly for periods when the sea breezes are not providing sufficient cooling.
