    Where to Stay 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 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.

    Great staff, best location, love the beach. The BBQ nights are great, the sunsets amazing. Smaller, quiet hotel, without that big-resort feel. Kayaks and paddle boards included.

    "10th Wedding Anniversary"
    We arrived late at night to a very nice, modern little bungalow with everything but a T.V. When we awoke in the morning the views from our room over the Muri lagoon were spectacular. We had a wonderful, relaxing week on Rarotonga at the Muri Beachcomber Resort. I'm glad there was no T.V. in the room as it made our stay more relaxing. We read and talked and sat outside in the evenings instead of laying in the room watching T.V. My only gripe was that we had a 10:00am check out and our flight didn't leave until 10:00pm so we had to leave our luggage in the lounge area and wait all day. We offered to pay for extra time but were told that the resort was fully booked, which was understandable. It just made it a very long trip home.

    "Wonderful views, good value, comfortable."
    When dining it's very hard to get good value for the money you pay. The barbeque at Paradise Cove was exceptionally good value and finger lickin great. I would highly recommend it. Great cooking plenty to eat, great variety of salads and vegetable dishes, Fish pork, chicken. Food is expensive at Cook islands as food gets freighted from New Zealand. Fresh tuna is plenty though $16kg, eggs $10 dozen, bottle of tomato sauce $10. Frozen veg $7. for 750grams. At times some of the shops wouldn't have groceries. People own their own fruit trees and sometimes bring some food to the shops.My recommendation bring some of your own food. The owner of Paradise Cove also owns the main supermarket and has an orchard so these guys do a good breakfast without running out of milk, plenty of fruit, bread jam honey, cereal and on sunday we had great pancakes. Tavi one of the breakfast staff invited us to local dance practice in the evening for the cook islands 50th celebrations. Jaw dropping dancing. Oropa the night time cook showed me how to shop for food in Cook islands,that was fun. I loved staying at Paradise Cove and would recommend it. Theres OK snorkelling in front of Paradise Cove and you dont need to go out that far, 10metres or so. However the best snorkelling is around other islands nearby and to get to these you could hire someone to take you out with their boat $40pp or go on a $100 tour which we did this was fantastic.
