  TEAL Story      Akaiami Kiteboarding    Lagoon Weddings  

For a number of years I have been welcoming visitors to Aitutaki who have stayed with us at our vacation accommodation on the main island of Aitutaki and the motu ( islet) of Akaiami.I offer  Aitutaki Cook Islands,budget, self contained, family holiday accommodation.

Akaiami Island, hidden deep in the heart of mysterious and beautiful Aitutaki lagoon, reaches out her arms over the vastness of the Pacific Ocean , calling you to come and rest your weary spirit here with us awhile.

Come away to the tranquil land of amethyst and emerald lagoon,the island of roseate dawns and wide open

skies,  to watch and wonder and marvel. Bring with you the most precious luggage that you possess - the

longing to experience such natural beauty carried within your heart.



Our deserted sandy white beaches, awash with the tide and the sparkle of the sea, await your lonely

footprints, whilst the ocean herself, mother of all things and mistress of the tides, beckons you to fulfil

yourself within her mysterious green depths.



Mornings at Gina's Akaiami Beach Lodge begin with the fading of the Eastern stars, whilst the gentle ocean

breeze rustles the curtains of your Lodge, bidding you to arise from the comfort of your bed and feel the

golden morning sun caress your back.




Your days will be filled with the wonder and enchantment that is Akaiami Island  – and the beauty that is

Aitutaki lagoon. The hours will slip by with enchanted grace, and twilight's pale coolness will soon caress your cheek.



 The evening stars will glimmer in the Eastern sky and the birds will seek their homes as

night begins to don her velvet cloak. Your evening at Akaiami beach will be filled with sublime peace and

beauty, the gentle lapping of waves in Akaiami bay.
