The initial sight of the aqua coloured water through the lobby blows you away and the experience never wavers from fabulous thereafter. Rooms on the sands of the lagoon a mere hop skip and jump from the crystal clear waters of possibly the world's number one coral atoll. Coral and fish abound and they can be easily accessed from the resort. Pacific Resort offers free masks flippers snorkels kayaks etc for all ages to partake in enjoying the beauty of the lagoon. The units have fans and air-conditioning full minibar services and a view from the main rooms to die for. The rooms are serviced daily and impeccably maintained and the beaches are excellently cared for as well. The restaurants are world class and have an ambience of their own: the main dining room overlooks the lagoon whereas the smaller is poolside. The staff are friendly curteous and helpful in all aspects of guiding their customers to various highlights of the island. One can walk, use a resort bicycle free, hire a motor scooter for a minimal fee or hire a car for longer trips.
The lagoon cruise is not to be missed and there are fishing charters which venture outside the reef looking for Tuna and Mahi mahi. If you catch your fish of a lifetime the resort will prepare it for you gratis with your only expense that night being the incedentals.
The traditional feast is currently Wednesdays and it is an all you can eat smorgasbord of local fresh and delicious foods prepared by the team of international chefs
There is little to no area night life but who needs night life in a place as idyllic as Pacific Resort Aitutaki.
This resort and the island come most highly recommended as a bucket list must.

Room Tip: All rooms have excellent facilities and views. The only difference is size and the number of persons...

We are here for a week to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The location and views are stunning. From our individual well equipped bungalow, we can go directly onto the beach and snorkel around the coral. The fish life is abundant, the water is so clear and we could easily snorkel for hours each day. The staff are extremely helpful and are only too keen to help organise excursions. You can hire scooters or cars at reasonable rates and there are push bikes you can use at any time. The restaurant and bar/cafe are very good. I love sitting in the restaurant which overlooks the ocean. It feels like being in a large tree house. The landscaping and layout takes your breath away. It truely is a tropical paradise.

The staff and facilities at this resort were beyond our expectations. From Adam the resort manager at the time to all the bar, dining and housemaid staff - nothing was a problem and they went out of their way to make us feel so welcome
We would recommend this resort to anyone looking to visit Aitutaki you will not be disappointed

My fiance and I stayed 5 nights and were very impressed by the food and service and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. In some places, the dry season was described as May to Nov and the rainy season Nov to May so it was a toss-up as to what kind of weather we'd experience. Unfortunately, there was 450 mm (about 18 inches of rain) that occurred in a 3-day period so we only got to enjoy the amazing lagoon our first and last day at the resort. We understood this to be very unusual but if we return (and we plan to), it will be in the middle of the dry season. The Wednesday Night "Island Night" buffet is very entertaining and the food is remarkable. There are numerous hiking trails walking distance from the resort with amazing views so good hiking shoes are recommended. There are also some little shops walking distance to the resort with great local food. Food at the resort was reasonably priced and of excellent quality. The hotel has bikes freely available and we had a great time biking around the island which takes about 3 hours. The hotel offers car rental for 6 hours for $45 NZD which is more than enough time to explore every corner of this lush, exotic island.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a lagoon view

On arrival at the airport we were greeted with a beautiful lei garland which smelt Devine, a delicious coconut drink and cooling cloths. We filled in the check in details whilst we waited for our luggage. Private transfer to the resort passing beautiful scenery on the way.
The resort is beautiful and the room has fantastic views with private steps to your own loungers on the beach.
The room had everything you require and more, even a complementary pareo for the lady and a straw hat for the gentleman.
Breakfast has a deliciously varied menu, recommend the salmon eggs Benedict -yum.
Good cocktails at Black rock cafe, but word of warning make sure you “deet up” before, whilst eating a tasty grilled fish the mosquitos were eating me!
Infinity pool is lovely needs a bit of attention re broken tiles and grout.
Dining in the main restaurant is formal but some parts of the menu are available at black rock cafe.
Recommend a lagoon trip to one foot island, OMG like swimming in an aquarium!!
Beautiful sea, sand and swimming.
Also a must is going to church on a Sunday- truly a beautiful experience the people are so friendly and the singing is out of this world.
I would recommend the resort, if you are looking for complete solitude.
Only transport on the Island is private hire of scooter or car, or paying for a taxi or the free bicycles at the resort.
