Hotel Review – Aitutaki – Pacific Resort Hotel

Posted on June 23, 2013



Pacific Resort Aitutaki consists of just 27 luxurious beachfront suites and bungalows – all within steps of the Pacific Ocean. It is the winner of “World’s Leading Boutique Island Resort” in the World Travel Awards of 2008, 2009 and 2010. They are the Cook Islands’ only member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection.

It has a swimming pool and free use of canoes for guests. The breakfast was outstanding and still rates as our no.1 breakfast to date!


Well everything is close in Aitutaki as it’s a pretty small island! You will want a car if you want to get out and explore. The beaches outside of the bungalows are just breathtaking and we were the only ones on them every time we went for a wander.

Up to 3 in each bungalow or you can get a 2 bedroom villa for up to 6.

The best bits:

Where to start? This is proper luxury and you feel like you’re in paradise from the minute you get there. Would I go back? In a heartbeat!

Worth bearing in mind:
I honestly can’t think of any negatives. My only advice would be that 7 days here without leaving may get a bit much – even paradise could do with a break sometimes! So I would definitely advise car rental to enjoy some of the other local restaurants and to see a bit more of the island.

Child Friendly:

There is no children’s menu but they go out of the way to accommodate children. They sorted out some avocado one day for our little boy and we regularly took eggs and bread from breakfast for an easy lunch for him.

The staff made us feel totally welcome, greeting our son each morning and stopping to talk to him if they saw us in the daytime. They even bought a baby bath we could use as our 2 year old didn’t like showers.
