US$ 972

Escape to the Cook Islands to experience the beauty of its two major islands. On this Cook Islands vacation you'll visit both Rarotonga and Aitutaki, where you'll stay in comfortable beachside accommodations and be free to explore the picturesque lagoons and beaches of this South Pacific nation.


This 6-day Cook Islands vacation takes you to accommodations on Rarotonga and Aitutaki.

Your Cook Islands vacation begins on Rarontonga at Castaway Beach Resort, an adults-only resort located on the west coast. This boutique island resort is inspired by castaway stories from Robinson Crusoe to the Tom Hanks-starring film, Cast Away. At Castaway Beach Resort, you'll stay in one of 12 units and have the freedom to take advantage of the sandy beaches or snorkel the lagoon in search of tropical fish. After a day's adventure, head to Wilson's Beach Bar to grab a drink alongside Wilson the Volleyball, or enjoy a fine Cuban cigar on the beach. While at Castaway Beach Resort, you'll head on a Circle Island Tour to learn about the history and culture of Rarotonga in the company of an expert guide.

From Rarotonga, continue your Cook Islands vacation by heading to Aitutaki and Tamanu Beach Hotel, where you'll be able to enjoy superb sunset views and explore the lagoon of Aitutaki, often considered the most-beautiful lagoon in the world. Tamanu Beach Hotel offers 35 spacious rooms with great views amidst long stretches of white-sand beach bordering Aitutaki's stunning lagoon. Whether you spend your time kayaking through the lagoon, enjoying cocktails in the restaurant and bar, or relaxing on the beach to enjoy the good weather, you'll experience casual luxury at Tamanu Beach Hotel. During your time at Tamanu Beach Hotel, you'll head on a cruise across the lagoon to experience this world treasure first-hand. On your cruise, you'll visit the Motu of Akajami to snorkel or fish and One Foot Island, where you'll enjoy a lunch of fresh BBQ fish and local produce.

This Cook Islands vacation promises warm weather and an even warmer welcome on two tropical island paradises.
