Absolutely best experience of our trip to Cook Islands!!! Awesome location, great rooms, nice restaurant right in front of the lagoon👍 We loved the beach, also a trip to one foot island included in the package. Quiet rooms in a beautiful garden. Easy access to scooter rentals Try the boat shed restaurant, walking distance 5 min from the hotel. Even though the hotels restaurant Blue Lagoon is very nice as well!

When I booked our flights (my husband and I) I read about Aitutaki and knew we had to go. Now, most people go for only a few nights but I was so glad we stayed for the majority of our trip there! The weather was fabulous (even when it rained or was cloudy, it didn’t last long and was still very comfortable. The staff there was so friendly and helpful, and even though it is off the beaten track as far as town goes, the restaurant was nice, Koru Cafe is a short walk and soooo worth it and the Boat Shed is close by to rent scooters/cars and have a nice meal (also nice for sunrise viewing) The room: beds are comfortable, our AC worked the whole time we were there, the shower was hot and had good pressure, the room was clean and they stocked our coffee/milk whoever we asked! Also,

After being met at the plane and taken on a 5 min drive we were there! Silence!! Flat clear water of the lagoon ruffled only by a wading Bone fisherman and a stand up paddle boarder you just wonder where the rest of the world went. Warm welcome by the friendly staff as we checked in before heading to our chalets. Great swim followed by drinks on the waters edge before a scrumptious dinner. Plans for snorkelling and a visit to 'One Foot ' Island the next day were set and it was time to enjoy our first night on Aitutaki. A wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life (even in Raro?) but all too soon we were heading out but we will be back again. Man many thanks to the whole team.

This is what you hope the South Pacific would look like: a beautiful, peaceful lagoon, barely a wave upon it, just endless differing shades of blue. The rooms are very expensive for what you are getting: they are basic wooden structures and are of inconsistent quality. The room my wife and I were in was fine, though the draining board next to the sink had not been cleaned; the one my kids were in had a lot of things missing, among them the insect net over the bed, a fly screen on the door, and any doors at all on their cupboards. Normally if you were paying this amount (I think about NZ$350 per bungalow per night) it would be outrageous. But, you're not paying for the quality of the room. You are paying for its location, and that is just incredible. The bungalows are in two

We were met upon arrival at the airport with fresh aromatic leis. We went to the property and our room was generously decorated with fresh flowers on the bed, on the counters etc, The facility was exactly as advertised. It was in a seperate bungalow. There was no tv, radio or telephone. If you are not content to sit on the beach or take a snorkeling cruise, this is not the island for you. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, this would be an excellent choice. Do not confuse this island with the Paris Ritz, but it is a wonderful;. quiet,peaceful place to relax and regroup.
