PACIFIC RESORT AITUTAKI
Aitutaki, Cook Islands

Temporary Full Closure of Resort
for Swimming Pool & Restaurant Refurbishment
26 January to 02 February 2019

Pacific Resort Aitutaki will be closed for bookings 26 January to 02 February 2019 for refurbishment of Public Area, Swimming Pool & Restaurant.

Our Thoughts on Pacific Resort Aitutaki
Many years ago, when Cook Islands tourism was in its infancy, a very modest, government-owned hotel was built on Aitutaki.  With a full choice of all locations on this picture-perfect island, the Rapae Hotel was built on the best site available.  After seeing service for some considerable time, the old Rapae Hotel was ultimately removed and now the Pacific Resort Aitutaki occupies an area which takes in much of that wonderful site. The name of the original hotel lives on at Pacific Resort Aitutaki in the resort’s signature “Rapae Bay Restaurant”.

What makes the site of Pacific Resort Aitutaki so special is the location on a small, west-facing promontory marking the turning point of the kilometres long beach which ends at the northern point of the island in one direction near the airport and at the town of Arutanga, an equal distance away in the other direction. With half the beachfront bungalows on each side of the point, guests have the option of a bungalow facing the wide beach on one side of the point or a bungalow on the other side of the point with a narrower beach and the lagoon only a few steps away. From every part of the resort, the view of the lagoon with the reef and the ocean beyond and the sunset over the lagoon is breath-taking.

Pacific Resort Aitutaki rates 5 Star.  The Resort continues to win international awards year after year and once you have experienced Pacific Resort Aitutaki, it is easy to see why.  The experience starts the minute you enter the terminal at Aitutaki Airport where Pacific Resort Aitutaki guests are shown to a private meeting area and welcomed by Resort Staff.  A short, 10-minute drive later guests enter the Resort’s beautiful entrance lobby and what a relaxing space this is, with its water features, its Polynesian style and relaxed luxurious ambience.   

There are 2 restaurants – The Rapae Bay and the Black Rock Café and Bar, gift shops, a spa and a magical horizon swimming pool; and all this servicing only 27 bungalows and villas.  We know that most people visiting Aitutaki arrive with the intention of enjoying dinners at the many restaurants and cafes on the island, but we also know that many guests at Pacific Resort Aitutaki never actually dine outside the Resort. The dining experience at the Resort’s Rapae Bay Restaurant, or on their bungalow’s private veranda, or in a private, romantic Bedouin-style beach tent at sunset is so completely satisfying that, somehow, plans for dining out seem to get forgotten. Meal Plans are offered for pre-purchase.

Pacific Resort Aitutaki includes full a la carte cooked breakfasts at their Rapae Bay Restaurant in their normal year-round tariff.

Included in the tariff:
● Full cooked a la carte breakfast served in the
    Rapae Bay Restaurant
● Complimentary use of kayaks
● Flower garland on arrival at Aitutaki Airport
● Return Aitutaki airport transfers
● Complimentary use of Bicycles
● Complimentary use of snorkelling gear, beach towels
     and sun loungers
● Fresh Coconut drink on arrival at Resort lobby.

What Pacific Resort Aitutaki Say About Themselves
“Secluded Luxury

The island of Aitutaki is an idyllic paradise, an atoll of lush tropical foliage and white sand beaches ringed by a stunningly beautiful lagoon of turquoise water. One of the most beautiful of the Cook Islands, it is home to Pacific Resort Aitutaki – a place where time passes slowly and the delights of island life are presented to you in luxurious surroundings.

You will be greeted each morning by a spectacular view of Aitutaki’s world famous lagoon, thanks to the private sundeck and absolute beachfront location of each of the resort’s 27 spacious and airconditioned beachfront bungalows, villas and suites. Each is beautifully decorated and appointed with high quality luxury amenities that illustrate exactly why Pacific Resort Aitutaki is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.”
