We've just been back for the 5th time and found it unchanged and as relaxing and beautiful as other times. Amazingly, despite an apparent increase in visitors to Aitutaki, we still didn't see many people on the beach or in the water. There has been...More

Kia Orana Thank you for those comments and continuing to return to enjoy what Amuri Sands and Aitutaki has to offer. Snorkeling is good with, as you say, plenty of tropical fish to see. You can always visit the Marine Research Centre to see them...More

My room was literally 5 coconut trees to the lagoon; a true island get away. Room was clean, owner very helpful; I loved the airport pick up and drop off. Idyllic and relaxing place, the snorkeling was superb, way better than the Bahamas. Again, the...More

Excellent location, helpful and friendly owner, all the amenities you need. Beautiful views any time of day but sunsets spectacular. We enjoyed our stay and would happily return. Roosters crowing is the call of the Islands and to be expected. Amuri Sands neighbouring properties have...More

Kia Orana Louise and Mac Always such a pleasure to have you stay. Unfortunately with only two units we couldn't put all the family up but it seems everyone used Amuri Sands as the base which was great. I have no doubt you will have...More

The comfort and privacy of Amuri Sands was just what I needed. Best view with palm trees, oceanfront and sunsets. Mark was very helpful with scooter arrangements and island tips. I went solo but this a perfect spot for couples too. Stayed a full week...More

No Island night at Amuri Sands but just along the beach at Tamanu Beach, they have an island night on Thursday with island buffet, dancing and fire show.
