Queen was very friendly but the place needed a good clean as felt a bit grimy in places - no bugs to report apart from some friendly geckos! Didn't fancy the pots and pans. Garden's were nice but the disused swimming pool suggests this place needs a face-lift to restore it's former beauty

The Queen was amazing - so friendly. The bungalows were spacious and fine for a few days, but a clean here and there would have made all the difference. didn't fancy using any of the plates or pans. table, floor and surfaces were a bit sticky although not sure whether that was because it was rainy season. No bugs to...

I travelled to Aitutaki as part of a research project in May of 2015. I lived there for one month, which is a considerably long time for any traveler as the island is very local, small, and remote. Tutai, the owner of Gina's Garden Lodges (named after her daughter, short for Georgina) is a perfectly pleasant lady and helpful resource...

Gina's Garden Lodges are a good alternative to the resort setting and offer an glamping experience. The 4 cabins are each located at the end of a quiet dirt road in a rural area of Aitutaki and offer tranquility and peace. While we are travelers who tend to stay in independent, budget, small, family run properties, there were some items...

I'm really sad to see that this lodge is so low in the ranking. Certainly the bungalows are a little bit dated but they are huge and with everything you need, including a very spacious kitchen. The huge garden is magnificent and the absolute quiet, sheltered from all the other structures and the center gave us a peaceful sleep for...

Traveling all around the world, you would hope that you can barging with people about staying in one place for an extended amount of time. I stayed with Queen Tutai and Des for 22 days and they were the only place on Aitutaki that would give me a deal for the time of stay. Starting off with a most warm...

We were collected from the airport by our friendly host and driven to the shops to pick up supplies. The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable with a beautiful verandah in s tropical garden. It is very close to Tupuna's restertaunt which does great dinners.

In planning a trip to Aitutaki I needed a place to stay for myself and two colleagues. We travel on a budget, but like to find self catering properties that are tidy and comfortable. Gina's Garden Lodges are located on an isolated inland section, and while it feels like a bit of jungle surrounds you, the grounds and well kept...

This is basic, functional accommodation. Compared to many of the Beach front accommodation this is by far one of the cheapest at $150 NZD a night and even though there was only two of us, our unit had 5 beds so I would say it is good for families. It is self catering but Tupuna's restaurant is within easy walking...

Lovely host who picked me up at airport with gardenias but disappointed I wasn't told at time of booking that the pool was empty with green stuff floating around and looked like hadn't been in use for a while as this would definitely have changed my mind about staying there. It's also quite a distance from anywhere so transport a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gina’s has two properties on Aitutaki Island, Cook Islands. One - Gina's Garden Lodges, is on the main island, and is about 5 minutes walk from the Tautu landing, on the Eastern shores of Aitutaki lagoon. The second, beach side property is situated on one of the reef islands at Akaiami Island - 5 miles across the lagoon. This is Gina's Akaiami Beach Lodge. We are family friendly and welcome children of all ages. Both of these locales offer an environment that is special to Eastern Polynesia, and in their own way give reality to those Pacific dreams which travelers seek, and which cannot be found at Resort Hotels. ... more   less
