Aloha and Kia Orana!
I have just returned from a wonderful week in the Cook Islands. My daughter Rachel and I had a great time together enjoying two of the beautiful islands. We spent our first five days on the main island of Rarotonga. A drop dead gorgeous white sand beach circles this entire island. You can walk for miles barefoot on this silky white sand and not encounter more than a handful of people! Sunrise and sunset views here are breathtaking. There are several small and intimate resorts to choose from.
We loved our stay at the Crown Beach Resort where we had a spacious 1 bdrm Beach bungalow just a few steps from the clear aqua blue water. We had our own private Jacuzzi tub on the deck which was the perfect way to enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset! The service is consistently excellent throughout the island, and the people are friendly and warm. There is a nice selection of restaraunts, most within walking distance, and the food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced.
After Rarotonga, we took a short and scenic flight over to the island of Aitutaki. There are some very nice resorts to choose from here also. Our favorite was the Pacific Resort Aitutaki. Their Beach Bungalows are richly furnished in solid mahogany, with many nice amenities and the ocean view from our deck was absolutely stunning.
Never have we seen more beautiful water than in Aitutaki! Our all day snorkel trip on the Bishop's Aitutaki Lagoon Cuise was definitely a highlight. We spent the day swimming, kayaking and snorkelling and were served a delicious barbeque lunch on "One Foot Island" (an adorable little island on the lagoon.. you can even get your passport officially stamped here!)
It was hard to say goodbye to all the friends we made in the "Cooks" and yet we are confident that we will be drawn back to this very special place again.
If you are looking for a spot that offers beautiful beaches, pristine clear water, total peace and quiet with excellent accommodations and great food... the Cook Islands are definitely a "must do".
