Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
5.0 of 5 bubbles
Tava'e Resort is boutique and modern but keeping Cook Island charm. The poolside room was spacious and although faced onto the pool and opposite rooms they were private. The beachfront unit looks really special facing out to the lagoon but the poolside rooms are only a few steps back from the beach-front. There were complimentary snorkel sets available, beach towels and fruit in our room.

The bed is big and comfy, gorgeous rainfall shower with lovely toiletries. The aircon was a saviour and the umbrella thoughtful. Filtered tap water in the room was great and there was even a bottle chilling in the fridge when we arrived.

Andrew provided an amazing concierge service and arranged two dinner reservations, a lagoon cruise for the following morning and a rental moped within less than an hour of arrival. Amazing! Ange and Charles were ever-present and always ensuring guests were happy and firmly on island time. All the staff are very warm and friendly.

The resort is within a short walk of Tamanu Beach next door and Pacific Resort slightly further in the other direction for dinner and drinks (definitely make reservations) and having a rental was great for us to explore restaurants further afield. Tava'e would be our only choice for Aitutaki, it has all the amenities of the larger resorts packed up neatly into a more personal experience.

We had a fabulous stay at Resort Tava'e. Everything about this new resort is exceptional. Well laid out with great facilities and grounds, including 2 beautiful pools, kayaks, paddleboards and direct beach access. The room was very spacious, very comfortable bed and lovely decor with so many extra's including cooking facilities.

The service was exceptional as well. Most friendly and helpful staff ever, all were lovely and great first impression of the resort. They were extremely accommodating and allowed us to check in early and then leave our luggage onsite after we checked out.

We would definitely stay again and will be recommending Resort Tava'e to all our friends.

It starts with being greeted on arrival with free transfers, and beautiful lei. The resort is new, like brand new so the facilities are at a high level, and plenty of staff maintaining it on the daily too. The team is very friendly and very accommodating, if you want anything ask them and they will arrange it. It deserves every part of the 5 star review, for cook islands, great WI-FI heaps of TV channels, the amenities in the room has everything you need, even a clothes rack to dry your clothes. The pool(s) are beautiful but right out the front is pure magic, snorkel straight out turn left, some of the best snorkelling on the island, nice soft pillow top bed, If we ever come back we will come here, thanks to everyone at Resort Tava'e for making our stay amazing!

They facilities are brand-new and stylish, a feeling in between minimalist and comfortable. It gets pretty warm, so I spent more time in The room that I expected in between activities. Two pools were warm, and brand-new also.

The massive TV with loads of channels I’ve got to catch up on a few movies and Internet was fully provided.

Hotel staff were fun, generous and helpful. the location was situated between the airport and town. I never expected to be hiring a moped or to feel really comfortable, but I did and it was so much fun to go up and down the street to town. Very safe and slow as were vehicles around me.

It was very quiet, so quiet in fact that when I did hear a few kids on occasion, it was wonderful to hear them splashing in the pool.

There was some construction whilst I was staying, however, it was not affecting me whatsoever. I know that they are building lots of new facilities for the resort, and I wish the resort people all the best for the new facilities.

Absolutely stunning. This is a new resort, with two swimming pools, rooms are located around the pool area and also rooms overlooking the beach. We had a stunning room, with the most amazing view across the beach, a lawned area and palm trees, beautiful. The deck area had sun loungers and was perfect to relax and enjoy the view.
The rooms are finished to a high specification, spacious and light, a wonderful shower room, the attention to detail is exceptional. I cannot recommend a stay here highly enough, Charlie, Angela and the team are so helpful and made our stay extra special. We did not want to leave, the best place to stay on this lovely island......10/1

We have just spent a fantastic 5 days at Resort Tava'e in a beach front unit - amazing location right on the lagoon which was perfect for snorkeling and sitting on the beach (or the balcony) at sunset. Saw moray eels, snake eels, porcupine fish, multiple little creatures and fish in 30 degree water so definitely go out snorkeling! Our unit was fantastic - twin share with my best friend. Amazing amenities for self catering, everything you needed was provided although next door did have a restaurant if you have no transport (Resort Tava'e is currently building their own restaurant opening later this year). Huge bathroom and shower. Airconditioning wonderful. We were met at the airport by resort staff with gorgeous flower leis, and complimentary transfers to/from the resort. Also there was a wonderful touch of a fresh tropical fruit bowl in the room on arrival. All the staff went out of their way to help with anything or any enquiries including booking car for us which was there on our arrival. The staff also booked the lagoon cruise for us and anything else we would have wanted - nothing seemed too much trouble for them!! Having a car (or transport) was very useful and I would fully recommend this. THANK YOU to Charles and his team at Resort Tava'e. You were all totally wonderful and made our holiday so memorable and fun. We will DEFINITELY be back and could not recommend this accommodation more highly. Thank you all.

What a fantastic place to stay in Aitutaki! It’s a new resort, the rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished and the staff are wonderful. We were lucky enough to stay in the lagoon view rooms. Amazing! Just a stone’s throw from the lagoon - what a view to wake up to! I can’t thank the staff enough - they’re all so helpful and happy and so welcoming. My friend and I had the best time and I’m already working on a return visit. There isn’t a restaurant onsite but it’s being built (there was no noise that we heard) and should be ready in May. But it’s not a problem because there’s another resort next door where you can eat or just get a taxi to a restaurant nearby.

This place is simply amazing! We had our wedding on the beach in front of Tava'e. Charles and the team went above and far beyond expectations. They made our experience absolutely amazing. No ask was too big, everything is made possible by the team. The resort is totally new and the amenities are all top-notch. There are kayaks and SUPs available free of charge for guests and the snorkling right in front of the resort is some of the best we've seen (even compared to the lagoon!).

Thanks team!

Our stay at Resort Tava'e was a wonderful 8 days. The pool side room we had was large, cool and well appointed, the bed comfortable and the wifi excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly helping with tour bookings and restaurant reservations. They even found a pair of snorkelling fins big enough to fit my husband's feet! The snorkelling was amazing right at the resort with many coral bommies and large numbers of reef fish, all in waist deep warm water. The resort made our stay on Aitutaki an unforgettable experience.
