Top 5 Resorts In The Cook Islands

Little Polynesia Cook Islands

Anyone who has visited the Cook Islands can tell you that it's one of the most stunningly beautiful group of islands on the planet.

The dramatic jungle covered mountain tops, jolly locals, and of course the incredible lagoons of Rarotonga and Aitutaki, are just a few of the things that bring travelers to the Cook Islands. Another perk of these seemingly perfect islands are the charming resorts that line it's beaches. You won't find towering mega-hotels, like you see in Hawaii and Mexico. The uncrowded Cook Islands are home to an array of small boutique properties that offer private bungalows and villas. Adorned in traditional Polynesian style, most resorts give you a sense of the Cook Island culture, while offering modern luxuries including five star dining and private plunge pools.

There are so many wonderful resorts that it's hard to just pick five, but we narrowed it down by choosing resorts that offer the best locations, accommodations, service, restaurants, and overall value. Here are our top 5 resorts in the Cook Islands.
