On our recent stay at Aitutaki Escape we experienced the most outstanding hospitality we have received anywhere in the world. Nothing was too much trouble for Vane and the charming housekeeping ladies. Our party had booked all three villas for our daughter's wedding and with Vane's help the wedding arrangements ran smoothly. Extra touches like scattering frangipani petals and making...

I would say Vane (on site manager) is part of the reason why Aitutaki Escape has so many good reviews. He is Aitutakian and genuine person. I have been to many luxury resorts in the South Pacific and other countries and have never met anyone like him. The villas are very nicely maintained. When you arrive here you immediately feel...

All the glowing reports you read about Aitutaki Escape and Vane are true. We visited for 4 nights in April. This was our second time in Aitutaki but first at Escape.
