When mom and dad need a romantic getaway and something different from a family travel trip, the Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort provides them with the perfect couple’s retreat. Located in the Southern Cook Islands, Aitutaki offers the ultimate escape, with breathtaking natural beauty, exciting adventure and endless romance. With an entire island at their fingertips, guests are free to unwind and let the worries and responsibilities of life melt away while recharging and reconnecting with themselves and their surroundings.

 

Beachfront bungalows and villas, decorated with beautiful Polynesian themes, give every guest a front row seat to beautiful views of Aitutaki Lagoon’s crystal-clear waters, letting guests jump in and go for a swim whenever they like. With the only overwater bungalows in the Cook Islands, complimentary access to paddleboards, kayaks and bicycles are included, allowing guests to explore the island and its surrounding waters at their leisure.

 

Unwind with a massage at the resort’s spa, SpaPolynesia Aitutaki, which offers traditional Polynesian massages like a full-body Romi Romi massage; a Toka Vera Polynesian hot stone massage; or an assortment of skin treatments, like a coconut sugar body scrub or a tropical fresh fruit body wrap. Dining at the resort always provides an incredible experience, whether it is a candlelit dinner on the beach or a refreshing lunch of fresh fish and tropical fruit.

 

The private island lies only minutes from the larger island of Aitutaki and is easy to reach by a short ferry. The resort offers a variety of activities like island drumming and dancing lessons, ukulele lessons and lei-making lessons. While the Cook Islands are beautiful year-round, the best time to visit is from April through November.
