Indulge in the Cook Islands,
where your lagoon-side resort awaits
Largely undiscovered by North Americans, the Cook Islands are like Hawai’i was 50 years ago, but with the added benefit of modern conveniences. Located in the heart of Polynesia, the Cooks are made up of 15 islands that exude rustic charm and breathtaking beauty.
Feel right at home in the sky.
Before you know it, you’ll awake to your new paradise.
Upon arrival you’ll discover Rarotonga’s airport is right by the lagoon, so you’ll be in your resort in no time. No need for further travel – you’ll go from customs to cocktails by our tranquil lagoon in under 30 minutes.
Quite simply, the best sleep in the sky. In Business Premier, you'll enjoy a super soft leather seat that transforms into a luxurious lie-flat bed, with a memory foam mattress, two full-size pillows and a cozy duvet. There's also an ottoman footrest that doubles as guest seating. And all lie-flat beds have direct aisle access.
More space, more seat, more luxuries. A premium travel experience at an affordable price. Make yourself at home in a luxuriously soft and roomy leather armchair. Browse the inflight entertainment, catch up on work or relax and enjoy famous Kiwi cuisine. Whatever you need, Air New Zealand flight crew are there to keep you smiling.
One of the Cook Islands’ greatest assets is its natural bounty. You can always find tropical fruits and vegetables, coconut water, and freshly caught fish. You can also choose from a wide variety of fine-dining options and modern cafés. Here, you can indulge in fare from a different part of the world every day of your stay!
Whether you’re seeking adventure or leisure, you’ve come to the right place. View our islands from the air aboard a private airplane or from the sea during a SCUBA certification course. Rent a private boat on what many have called the most beautiful lagoon in the Pacific, golf on a course adjacent to the sea, or take a yoga class on the sand at sunrise. Enjoy the relaxation you deserve during a massage on the beach or a world-class spa treatment. You can also experience the authentic culture of the Cook Islands at an island night or on a jungle trek. Whatever your tastes, we’ve got something for you to do!
