Gina’s Garden Lodges

Your lovely host: Paramount Chief Queen Manarangi Tutai

A friendly, happy woman with a big Polynesian smile is Auntie Tutai, or “The Queen”  who has always lived in Aitutaki.  She is also known as “ Queen of the Sunrise”, because her people are the first on Aitutaki to see the sun when each new day dawns.  Aunty Tutai will welcome you with open arms.
