The Cook Islands

The Cook Islands are the secret of the South Pacific. The 15 Cook Islands lie halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii. No chain restaurants or brand hotels. It’s a place preserved in time yet still blessed with all the modern amenities of today like 5-star properties, wi-fi, and gourmet restaurant options. In the Cooks, adventures are everywhere if you’re looking for it, but total relaxation is always with you.

A mix of coral atolls and volcanic islands – a good few of the nine Southern islands of the Cooks could be listed as “must see before I die”. An idyllic climate, stunning scenery, warm-hearted people and a desirable way of life where “hurry” has not been coined, make them irresistible. Bush clad volcanic peaks descend to glistening white sands and the inevitable palm-fringed blue lagoons: The Cook Islands is an Island Paradise. Rarotonga – the main island – and Aitutaki – breathtakingly beautiful – dominate the call of the conch. Six of these beautiful Cook Islands lie to the north. Described as “the stuff that dreams are made of”, their remote appeal pulls at the hearts of explorers, adventurers, authors and artists. Each island is unique.
