Most luxury resorts in Cook Islands have a pool. Ocean Escape Resort & Spa has Rarotonga’s only fresh ocean lagoon pool, while each villa at Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa comes with its own private pool. For stunning beachfront views poolside, look to Little Polynesian Resort or Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas, both in Rarotonga.
It all depends on what type of holiday you’d like to have. There are both budget and high-end accommodation options, and you can choose to eat out at market stalls or luxury restaurants. Generally, groceries are quite expensive as most items are imported. If you travel in off-season, you can expect reduced rates.
Rarotonga’s north coast is closest to the airport and the capital, Avarua, where you’ll find shops, museums and outdoor markets. The south of Rarotonga is home to the best beaches on the island, with deep lagoons perfect for snorkelling and non-motorised watersports.
