Luxury beach resorts, Cook Islands

Combining Rarotonga and Aitutaki is the perfect beach holiday!

Rarotonga , the hub of the Cook Islands has so much to do and see yet remains completely unspoilt. Epic jungle clad mountains cascade into sparkling lagoons where you can safely swim, snorkel or enjoy a myriad of water sports. Rarotonga is like one big resort, it is easy to get around and explore, hire a moped or take the bus that circles the island on every hour.

Aitutaki is paradise and only a short 45-minute flight from Rarotonga. Secluded and romantic, 15 motus (islets) are sprinkled across this huge turquoise, sunlit lagoon. Discover countless varieties of brilliantly colored tropical fish and marine life in the impossible blue of the lagoon.
Take a day cruise or charter a boat for a secluded picnic on an uninhabited motu. With an even more relaxed lifestyle and warm locals, this destination is the top of any bucket list in the South Pacific.

We are delighted to introduce our 6 Nights Two Island Combo Special for staying at our award winning Pacific Resort Aitutaki, and Rarotonga’s premiere boutique resort, Little Polynesian Resort.

Little Polynesian Resort Rarotonga | Pacific Resort Aitutaki

At the Little Polynesian, gentle waves lap against the sand. The scent of tropical flowers drifts through the gardens. Palm trees frame endless views of the deep blue Pacific. At Little Polynesian Resort, it’s time to forget the cares of the everyday and let your senses take the lead.

The exclusive bungalows and studios at this boutique escape have Polynesian craftsmanship at their core. High, vaulted ceilings of traditional ‘Are’ bungalows create a light, soothing atmosphere – look out for hand carved symbols on the wooden fixtures. Beach front Bungalows are just steps from the sand, while Garden Studios are immersed in botanical beauty. If you’re in the mood to relax, pick out a hammock on the private beach or a shaded lounger beside the infinity pool. The hotel restaurant will keep you topped up with cold drinks and light bites throughout the day. While the evening menu stretches from the Pacific flavors of the Cook Islands to the Mediterranean.

Secluded Luxury … The multi-award winning, five-star Pacific Resort Aitutaki, surrounded by the breathtaking, tranquil turquoise waters of the Aitutaki lagoon, offers an intimate collection of only 27 luxuriously appointed bungalows and villas. Each air-conditioned room offers uninterrupted views across the lagoon from your very own private sun-deck.

Sip on a poolside cocktail at Black Rock Bar. Take in the panoramic view whilst dining at Rapae Bay Restaurant. Indulge at our on-site Tiare Spa. For a truly special evening, enjoy private dining in a Bedouin style tent on the beach.
