Itineraries

The best combinations for island hopping

From Rarotonga’s perfect palm-lined beaches to Aitutaki, the most beautiful lagoon in the world, the Cook Islands are what dreams are made of. 

Rarotonga is the largest of the fifteen islands that make up the Cooks, yet it only takes half an hour to circle the island by scooter, the main mode of transport here. Or you can catch the bus on one of just two routes in the entire country, clockwise or counter-clockwise. Such is the charm of the Cook Islands, completely undeveloped and blissfully off the beaten track.

It’s hard to imagine a place more perfect than Aitutaki. You will be captivated as soon as the island comes into view on the 45 minute flight from Rarotonga. Captivation gives way to pure enchantment as you explore the warm turquoise lagoon studded with deserted islets of white sand and lush green palm trees. This is the South Pacific at its very best.

Absolute Relaxation

A week of relaxation on Aitutaki

If you’re looking to completely switch off from the world in your own little corner of paradise, look no further than Aitutaki. With less than 2,000 locals, only a handful of resorts, and plenty of deserted islands and beaches, there’s little to do but relax here!

  • Inclusions

    7 nights' accommodation (7 nights at Pacific Resort Aitutaki including breakfast daily), return flights from Rarotonga to Aitutaki, and return airport transfers.

Family Friendly Rarotonga

Enjoy a family escape on Rarotonga

Rarotonga is perfect for families of all ages. The island is surrounded by a coral reef, meaning the beaches are calm and excellent for snorkelling. The resorts offer a full range of aquatic activities so you can happily spend all day at the beach. And there’s a whole island to explore, from the markets of Avarua to quad biking the forested interior. Finally, no holiday to the Cook Islands would be complete without a day trip to Aitutaki to experience the beautiful lagoon.

  • Inclusions

    7 nights' accommodation (7 nights at Te Manava Luxury Villas and Spa including breakfast daily), day tour to Aitutaki with return flights and lagoon cruise, and return airport transfers.
