LOVE A LITTLE PARADISE

T

he locals are warm and friendly, the culture is attractive and engaging, the beaches, lagoons, mountains and forests are pristine, and there is lots to do… or nothing to do! It’s up to you how to ‘love a little paradise’. Importantly, the pace is pleasantly ‘island time!’ Situated in the South Pacific, the Cook Islands is around four hours flying from Auckland, six hours from Sydney, nine and a half hours from Los Angeles, and two and a half hours from Tahiti. Your choice of accommodation

C

hoose from packaged Hotels & Resorts, or more personal Luxury Villas and Self-Catering homes and apartments, or maybe Backpackers and Budget establishments. There is a wonderful variety available, particularly in Rarotonga and Aitutaki.

This symbol on a listing is your assurance of service and hospitality from members of the Cook Islands Tourism Accreditation and Quality Assurance Program. The most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of ‘accredited’ accommodation in the Cook Islands can be found on the website of the Cook Islands Tourism Corporation cookislands.travel in the Accommodation section.
