Property Info

Please note Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort is undergoing construction works until approximately 01 July 2023. New facilities include a Reception (including Luggage Room), Gift Shop, Spa, Restaurant, Swimming Pool, Activities Hut and Gym. This construction is taking place in a location separate from the accommodation bungalows, behind extensive screening and a long way from the Flying Boat Beach Bar & Grill, the beach and watersports areas. No effort is spared to reduce the noise and disruption involved.


Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort is island accommodation at its most luxurious. Set in a beautiful secluded islet right on the edge of stunning Aitutaki Lagoon, the resort presents breathtaking views of the lagoon and the surrounding beach and gardens. The resort is the only one directly on Aitutaki Lagoon and offers the Cook Island's only overwater bungalows.

These unique and luxurious bungalows are set among coconut palms and exotic gardens and all accommodation is fitted with platted kikau for roofs, hand-woven pandanus wall matting, coconut hemp rope and locally crafted artefacts.

The onsite dining options offer fine a la carte menu and specialise in local seafood. The resort also features a number of excellent facilities including a boutique, beautifully landscaped swimming pool, twice weekly cultural shows and a wide range of excursions so everything you could possibly need while on holiday in the Cook Islands is never far from your accommodation.

Aitutaki itself is paradise, beautiful weather and picturesque. Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa is also beautiful but VERY expensive. Thank you for the upgrade to the overwater bungalow, it was gorgeous and we felt very spoilt. In saying that the resort is expensive, all of Aitutaki is expensive for accommodation and it is simply something that has to be accepted if you want to visit and stay. Absolutely LOVED the place, staff and everything about it.


lovely resort

We liked everything at the resort: accommodation (stayed in deluxe beachfront - wonderful), service, location, very good food (including fresh salads), very helpful and approachable management.



The location says it all about this resort and the attitude of the staff was another plus. All staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was inviting and other meals of a good standard.

This is a resort I would recommend with confidence.
