If you have a dream to really, truly, deeply experience the very essence of the South Pacific, then it is here - in the very heart of the South Seas - that your dream will be most truly realised.
The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is not just located in the heart of the South Pacific, it truly captures its unique, exotic, unpretentious heart.
Here you can experience the sweeping romance of your own private island, afloat, almost adrift, in the South Seas. The incredible charm of your own thatched bungalow perched atop the champagne sands. Swaying in a hammock under the cool green of a nodding palm tree, the blue, serene expanse of legendary Aitutaki Lagoon revealed before you. And by night, you can thrill to the pounding rhythm of the Aitutaki drums as the grass-skirted dancers shimmy and shake on the sands traced by a moonlit sea.
Everyone should journey to the very heart of the South Seas, at least once in their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone will have the opportunity to live - at least for a while - right at the edge of the world's most beautiful lagoon
Ode to Blue
This is where Mother Nature decided to write her most sublime, most intense Ode to Blue. A poem of surreal, super-natural power. To come here is to enter into the blueness, into the endlessness of omnipresent blue. Heaven, you will discover, is undoubtedly blue.
The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa rests on its own private isle named Motu Akitua, and is the only resort located directly on world-famous Aitutaki Lagoon.
It is from here that so many of the most stunning shots of Aitutaki Lagoon have been taken, because Motu Akitua affords the best views of this legendary lagoon. Panoramic, majestic, spellbinding views to die for.
Have you ever seen a masterpiece in an art book, and then been lucky enough to come upon it in life? A masterpiece perhaps such as the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, or a massive Kandinsky or Chagall canvas. You think you know what the real thing will look like, yet nothing prepares you for the power of scale, the power of something bigger than yourself.
The scale of the scene
You will have seen wonderful, dreamy, inspiring images of Aitutaki Lagoon. Gorgeous little photos in magazines, brochures or the internet. You will believe you know what it really looks like. And yet nothing will prepare you for the power of being there, for the vastness of the scene, for becoming one with blue. These will become moments apart.
Once you have left, you will forever be able to close your eyes and re-enter this portal, a portal to the poetry, to the power, of blue, the blueness of Heaven.
So why go to the effort and expense of journeying all the way to the heart of the South Pacific, to the shores of Aitutaki Lagoon, to The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa? Because no one should have to live life without at least once visiting Heaven while they're still on Earth.
The best lagoon views on Earth
The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is:
. The only resort located directly on Aitutaki Lagoon, a true Wonder of the World. That's 'location, location, location' for you. A good map will show this to you clearly.
. Because of this world-beating location, guests of The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa are the only resort guests to enjoy views of Aitutaki Lagoon, directly into the majesty, the heart of the lagoon. Expansive, panoramic views which are truly to die for. The best lagoon views on Earth, of Earth's most beautiful lagoon. See this for yourself and you'll realise it is no exaggeration. If anything, it fails to truly convey the grandeur of the experience.
. Located on charming Motu Akitua, The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is the only resort in the Cook Islands located on its own private island. To the prosaic this will mean little. To the poetic, this will mean everything. The luxury, the deep peace of your own truly private piece of paradise is indescribable.
. Yet even the romantics have a practical side. So the fact that this delightful little island is just a 2 minute ride by small private ferry from the main island of Aitutaki means that you have the absolute best of both - the convenience of quick and easy access combined with the exclusivity and tranquillity of privacy.
. The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is the only resort in the Cook Islands with Overwater Bungalows. Until you've stayed in an Overwater Bungalow you believe they're overrated, once you have, you're spoilt for life. Not even staying right at the water's edge quite compares to the sense of freedom and uplift of spirit that you feel in an Overwater Bungalow, afloat on a blue blue lagoon.
. The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is an all-bungalow resort, with the charming thatched bungalows well spaced for privacy. Here again, something unique.
. The warmth of the genuine Aitutaki welcome which you will receive at The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is something truly special and memorable. So many of our guests tell us that the stunning natural beauty of the setting was made complete for them by the friendly and obliging hospitality and service which they received; and so often it's the reason they come back again and again.
. The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa is authentic Aitutaki. Yet again, something unique. Staying here is not like staying in a cookie-cutter chain hotel, it is not like staying in a nicely-decorated but could-be-Asia or could-be-anywhere resort or collection of bungalows. The Aitutaki Resort is locally-owned, it is light, airy, breezy and . . . unashamedly Aitutakian.
. Staying in a fully-serviced resort has its advantages, actually, it has its many, many advantages. Time is precious to you, and you want to savour every moment to the fullest. By staying at a fully-serviced resort such as The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa, you ensure that no precious time is wasted on anything other than maximum enjoyment of the moment, and each other. Whether you require wedding services, tips on the best places to snorkel, lessons on how to windsurf, help with booking your MX5 sports car or a cruise of Aitutaki Lagoon, or you need to place a room service order for a candlelit dinner, it's all right here for you at The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa. Your truly private piece of paradise.
