The only private island, adults only resort in the Cook Islands. It is the only Cook Islands resort to offer that invention of incurable romantics - the Overwater Bungalow. And it is the only resort on Aitutaki with a truly Polynesian flavour, so you can truly savour what the South Pacific is famous for.

Extremely nice people and very attentive. They would call us by name each day at breakfast and when we saw them walking around he resort. The resort is suffering from the need of some TLC. For example, the over the water huts were very nice inside but the thatch roofs were

Good location, friendly staff, but the place is noticeably old and need a bit of a refresh. Some things needs to be kept in a better shape. For example the door to our bungalow was getting constantly stuck, and the lock was getting jammed to the point where the key broke, needed

First of all - the location: cannot beat it, the lagoon is completely stunning... that's sort of where it ends though. The airport transfer was great but once we saw our room? Not impressed... we ended up upgrading halfway through our stay which was better. But there have been

We were picked up at the airport for our transfer to the resort. Bags were in the room when we arrived. Every bungalow is facing the water and makes this resort unique. Breakfast is perfect but for dinner I would go to the blue lagoon at walking distance and the boat shad around

Please read all the one and two star reviews to really understand what a terrible place this is. We believed their website that promoted this $1,000 per night villa as “secluded and exclusive”. We had visions of our own private island with ocean waves lapping up at the foot of

Kia Orana - the ferry is complimentary between 7 AM and 10 PM. A standard two or three course meal in the evenings in New Zealand dollars not including drinks would be between $30 and $40 per person. Please let us know if we can offer you any further assistance.
