We loved the access and ownership of Akaiami which Gina's Beach Lodge offered us. While the accommodations are very much camp style or 80's fishing lodge, we were able to get a good night’s sleep and while mosquitos were present, they actually weren't that bad. The best part is not the accommodations but rather the setting and access to your...

Wow, this place is awesome. A true desert island experience! We stayed here for 3 days (2 nights) and it was everything we could have asked for. Des and Tutai were wonderful hosts, Tutai picked us up from our hotel on the mainland and took us shopping for supplies before we went to the boat. We really appreciated Des and...

Wow! What a fabulous place to stay, we only regret we only booked for 3 nights and not more. Tutai picked us up from the airport the day before and let us stay for free in her garden lodge accommodation as we arrived on the late plane and it would have been too dark to boat across that day. She...

This place is great chilled out, easy self catering accommodation, there is only one other accommodation on the island so it's like it's yours! And Tutai and Des will pick you up from the airport, take you to the shops to get your supplies and boat you over to the island so this is easy! The accommodation works using an...

Loved this place!!! I spent 4 nights there on my own and it was marvellous. The reef may not be as abundant as Aitutaki main island but if you hang around you will see pretty much all the same stuff. Its also a good paddle to 1ft island which makes for a great day. You also have unobstructed views of...

We traveled to Aitutaki for 8 days in October, 4 of those days we spent on Akaiami – a little, beautiful island (motu) which is uninhabited. Both Aitutaki and Akaiami are beautiful places. It is the ideal place for busy people looking to rest, relax, unwind and “recharge the batteries” - particularly Akaiami where the owners, Des and Tutai, offer...

Staying (largely) alone on a small tropical island in a turquoise lagoon is a dream that comes true here. Queen Tutai and Des, the owners, will take you to their island and, if you're lucky, share their knowledge of this paradise's past and present with you. The place's beauty is hard to describe. You can use a cayak to explore...

Back again! This time was even better and before. You "own" motu Akaiami is only standing there for you. Snorkelig in the crystal blue water og kajacking in the lagoon. You find it all on and around Akaiami. Tutai and Des is now our pasific friends. You have not been in Cook Island before you have been some nights on...

Forget the hassle of crowdy tourist destinations. Go for the unique once in a lifetime experience. If you travel to Aitutaki (of the Cook Islands) and accommodate yourselves at Ginas Beach Lodge, you find yourself in Paradise. It is situated on a tiny coral island -motu- called Akaiami - by the beautiful lagoon of Aitutaki. Since here is only one...

There are several reasons I returned to Tutai and Desmond Clarke's paradise on Akaiami motu in the huge lagoon of Aitutaki six years after my first visit. The hosts is one reason. True Pacific hospitality, and they give excellent service. Other reasons are the place itself, with fully equipped kitchen, WC, shower and 3 bedrooms. At a nice price of...
