Cook Islands' Romantic Holidays
Bunk Down In An Overwater Bungalow
Trade in the stock-standard room for an overwater bungalow sitting on the world-renowned Aitutaki Blue Lagoon. If you’re the type of person who dreams of water views and the water at your doorstep, you won’t be disappointed by the overwater bungalow’s uninterrupted panoramic view of the lagoon, and the front steps that lead straight down to the blue surface.
It’s not just the environment that’s luxurious, as all the bungalows come with creature comforts such as outdoor showers, a deck with sun lounges and in-room services.
Tranquility In An Overbeach Bungalow
An overbeach bungalow removes one wall of your room and replaces it with exquisite luxury in the form of a picturesque Cook Islands beachfront, private gazebo, daybeds, outdoor shower and spa, and the soft white sand only metres away. It’s all about finding paradise in the little things, whether you’re walking barefoot along mahogany floors or gazing out at the ocean from your king-size bed.
Enjoy The Intamacy Of A Private Islet
A big part of Muri Lagoon’s beauty comes from the islets that dot its bright blue water. Although Muri Lagoon can often be busy with families and other visitors, the islets are a great place to find privacy on Rarotonga. With enough space to comfortably accommodate small groups of people, the islets allow you that feeling of being away from the rest of the world while you swim and sunbathe.
Indulge In Island Spa Treatments
It’s never too hard to relax on an island paradise, but if you want to take the pampering to a whole nother level, try a specialised Cook Islands spa treatment on Rarotonga or Aitutaki. These two islands are home to multiple award-winning day spas, which have expert masseuses who are adept at removing all stress using various techniques.
Beach-side Cocktails At Sunset
Arorangi is home to a variety of bars situated right on the beach, possessing a romantic atmosphere that peaks during sunset. Picture the soft glow of a setting sun over the azure water while you and that special someone sit back in comfortable seats with a specialty cocktail by your side. The service at the bars helps you feel right at home amongst the tropical surrounds, while the delicious drinks will have you ordering more than just one round.
Set Sail On A Sunset Cruise
You can experience romance on the waves with a sunset cruise around Rarotonga on a 17-metre yacht that lets you bring your own bottle of champagne or other alcohol onboard. The only thing better than watching the sun set over the ocean is being right out on the water while the sun dips below the horizon.
With an experienced captain driving the boat, you and your partner can lay back and relax to the sound of water lapping at the sides. If you’re visiting during whale season, you may be fortunate enough to see a memorable show out in the ocean.
