Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort Adults Only

“No artist’s palette could ever conceive of a more perfect, more luminescent turquoise than that of the lagoon of Aitutaki, arguably the most beautiful in the world,” wrote Steve Davey in Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die (BBC Books).

For the ultimate South Seas idyll, the stunning new-look Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort Adults Only offers the only Overwater Bungalows in the Cook Islands from where you can gently slip into the sublime lagoon waters directly from your deck. This exclusive resort is also the only private island resort in the Cook Islands, and the only resort set directly upon the World’s Most Beautiful Lagoon, Aitutaki. Voted in the prestigious Condè Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards as one of the Top 25 Resorts in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific and listed by Islands magazine as one of the World’s 12 Best Private Islands, the resort rests effortlessly on the secluded, private island of Motu Akitua, just a 2-minute ride by private ferry from the main island of Aitutaki.

Be delighted to arrive to the resort’s brand-new complex which includes a grand Polynesian indoor-outdoor lobby, waterfront dining, SpaPolynesia, gift shop, gym and more. Along with a mouthwatering Pina Colada or cold beer, drink in the island’s best views of the world-famous lagoon from the new Infinity Pool Restaurant & Bar.

Just a 45-minute flight from Rarotonga, the capital of the Cook Islands, Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort Adults Only offers stylish new Beachfront Private Infinity Pool Villas along with unique Overwater Bungalows and beautiful Deluxe Beachfront, Premium Beachfront and Beachfront Bungalows complete with refreshing Polynesian-style open-air showers, super-king bed, spacious verandah with sunloungers, air-conditioning and resort-wide Wi-Fi. The sumptuous luxury Royal Honeymoon Pool Villa Princess Te Arau, a favourite with celebrities, offers complete privacy in a lush tropical garden setting, daybed pavilion, swimming pool and a separate kitchen/dining pavilion.

The resort offers a range of memorable dining experiences including a fire dance show at the water’s edge, authentic umukai (earth-oven) feast and private candlelit dining in the Kuriri Point gazebo under a canopy of twinkling stars. Guests can enjoy complimentary use of stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, snorkelling gear and bicycles, along with learning to make a fresh flower ‘ie (lei), dance the ‘ura (hula) and play the ukulele. Heaven sent for couples celebrating a special anniversary, birthday, wedding or honeymoon.
