Accommodation in Cook Islands

If your version of paradise is white-sand beaches, turquoise oceans, and palm trees swaying in a gentle breeze, then take your next holiday on the remote Cook Islands. Spread out over 2.2 million square kilometres, this volcanic archipelago includes 15 inhabited islands. Tourists mostly flock to the two most populated islands, Aitutaki and the capital island, Rarotonga.

Both islands offer magnificent beaches and crystal-clear water, just begging for scuba divers and snorkellers. The islands are also a popular snowboarding destination. Rarotonga and Aitutaki are home to large resorts with many amenities, but tourists can also wander off the beaten path to explore local villages filled with clucking chickens and welcoming locals.

Cook Island Accommodation

There are strict regulations about allowing tourists on the island, so make your Cook Islands accommodation reservations in advance of your trip. Rarotonga and Aitutaki offer the most accommodation options, including large, full-service resorts with beautiful beach or lagoon views. Travellers can also find more reasonable villas or back packer options to stay in budget.

Getting to the Cook Islands

By air, you’ll fly into the Rarotonga International Airport, which receives direct flights from Auckland, Sydney, Fiji, and Los Angeles. You can also take a boat into the island chain through one of five designated ports of entry. Once you make it to Rarotonga, you can travel to other islands by plane or island freighter. On more populated islands, you can usually take advantage of the local bus service or rent a car or scooter.

Saving on Your Trip to the Cook Islands

You have many Cook Islands resorts to choose from, so visit Expedia.co.nz to make sure you get the best deal on your flights, hotels in Rarotonga, and rental cars. Expedia allows you to compare prices, so you can save time and money on your island holiday getaway.
