Impossibly blue lagoons, dazzling white sand beaches fringed by postcard palm trees, our islands offer couples the perfect romantic escape. The unspoilt natural beauty of the Cook Islands is a magical setting for celebrating love, anniversaries, milestones, special birthdays or simply a bucket list spot for some well-deserved reconnection.
After Rarotonga, Aitutaki is our second most visited island in the Cook Islands. Secluded and romantic, it holds a compelling allure for honeymooners, many of whom choose this haven for the duration of their stay. You can look forward to languid, leisurely days simply reveling in each other’s company and the jaw-dropping surroundings. Work on your suntan lazing under a coconut palm, relax with a massage or ask for directions to the secret garden.
Recharge in Paradise
Rarotonga and Aitutaki are easy, relaxing and fun destinations for you and your partner. From romance and relaxation, to action and adventure, gourmet dining, arts and culture, there’s something here for every couple on every budget.
Indulge in Pure Beauty
Pamper yourself with spa and beauty treatments and you’ll instantly fall into island time. Your stress and fatigue will melt away as the combination of skilful spa therapists and tropical island paradise work their magic. A luxurious range of treatments from qualified professional therapists are available for men and women from the many health and beauty spas, which are either onsite at resorts or operated independently. You can choose beauty by the beach, the pool, by a waterfall or in private spa facilities.
Enjoy the Island Cuisine
You can’t go wrong wherever you choose to eat. For exceptional Cook Island cuisine, there are some stunning restaurants, several featuring ‘feet in the sand’ dining. The big resorts also offer romantic beachfront dining by candlelight. From fine cuisine to the local favourite of ika mata (raw fish marinated in coconut cream) and mouth-watering tropical fruits, the food is an unexpected pleasure. There are plenty of good, cheaper places to eat and you can always find fresh fish and chips to eat on the beach.
Romance on Rarotonga
Many couples choose just to soak up Rarotonga’s relaxed pleasures, with its stunning blue lagoon surrounded by a protective coral reef, its towering mountain peaks and tropical lush valley floors. A day strolling on the beach, snorkelling, swimming, snoozing, or just admiring the scenery from your hammock, drifts away in no time.
Romance on Aitutaki
If you thought you had slowed down in Rarotonga, just wait till you visit Aitutaki. It’s an exquisite tropical atoll, listed as one of the best beach locations in the world. Often referred to as heaven on earth, it’s where to go to get away from it all and enjoy the ultimate escape together.
