I booked Matriki based on past reviews and wasn't disappointed at all, I can't recommend this place highly enough! Matriki was an incredible place to stay for a holiday to get away from all the stresses of modern day life and enjoy the spectacular Cook Islands. When I booked I did start to worry that I might have booked for...

Kia Orana Richard Thank you for your wonderful and informative review of Matriki. You summed up the Aitutaki atmosphere perfectly. As lovers of this Paradise island, Paul and I understand that the crystal clear warm waters, white coral sands and swaying palm trees are the magical ingredients to a fantastic holiday, but it also takes the spices of welcoming, friendly...

Ahhhh Matriki what a wonderful place to spend our two-week Aitutaki adventure. My husband and I stayed in the Reef Hut and loved every second of it. Matriki’s beachfront location is one of the best on the entire island. The beautiful white sand beach and gorgeous reef are just steps from your door. The beach huts have everything you need...

Kia Orana Guys! Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

Martriki was good, comfortable and have stoves and sink in room, quiet but bathrooms and even the private showers were outside. Tracey and Trevor were very helpful. But Auitaki is good for family and couples. Easy access to the best spot on the beach which it was great for snorkelling.

Staying at Matriki is a very affordable way of experiencing the ultimate paradise! All the huts (except the Garden Hut) are positioned right on the beach!! Why pay the big $$$ and stay further back from the view over the Aitutaki reef? With the cheap price though, you do get the basics. We stayed in the Tree Hut which was...

The huts are simple and sufficient, and delightful for that. No running potable water inside, but access at the palm tree outside, and no heat in the showers. But clean, simple and so relaxed. The real sparkle about this place is the hosts - Tracy and Trevor are superb. From airport pickup on you feel lucky to be with them....

Trevor picked me and my wife up at the airport, and gave us a brief (but thorough) tour of the town as we bought groceries. The room was nicely sized (we stayed in the Garden Unit, which has its own bathroom) and had a nice kitchen area with sink, gas stove, toaster, water heater, and mini-fridge.
