The Cook Islands – Live differently
Tiny and remote, the Cook Islands are a ‘necklace’ of 15 islands scattered across the heart of the South Pacific. Offering turquoise lagoons, lush green landscapes, hidden coves and perfect beaches, they make for some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable.
There are no high-rise hotels and very little hype. Ideal for travellers seeking more than the usual clichés associated with the South Seas, each island has its unique qualities and offers the visitor a special experience.
There's much more to these islands than meets the eye. Picture yourself strolling across the untouched sands of the main island of Rarotonga, bargaining for unique black pearl jewellery in the lively Saturday market, swimming in the surrounding crystal waters, horse riding at sunset or just simply enjoying a meal under the stars on your private deck - the Cook Islands offer that little bit more to those with a thirst for something different!
For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life, the paradise island of Aitutaki offers a perfect retreat. This beautiful atoll is home to some of the most picturesque beaches in the Cook Islands, as well as a number of unique and classic hotels, with prices to suit all tastes and budgets.
