Summer may be on the way, but let’s face it; Summer in the UK isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be! So you have two options; you can take a chance, stay home and hope you can wear your bikini at least once this summer. Or you can admit defeat and get on a plane for your summer vacation. And if you’re going to choose option B, why not treat yourself to a little bit of paradise in the form of the stunning island of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands?
Aitutaki is an island of breathtaking beauty with its crystal clear waters and endless white sand beaches. It is less than an hour’s flight from Rarotonga and Air Rarotonga has regular flights to the island up to four or five times a day.
Legend has it that Maungapu, the highest hill on Aitutaki, once stood atop Raemaru Peak on Rarotonga and was carried to Aitutaki by victorious warriors after a fierce battle. Fortunately, the warriors are long gone and now the only thing you will find in great numbers are the many colorful fish that fill the lagoon surrounded by Maungapu.
Aitutaki has a wide range of accommodation, but if you’re on one of the most luxurious islands in the world, why settle for anything less than the best? The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa offers a variety of island living options and features individual private bungalows: seven exclusive and luxurious overwater bungalows (the only overwater bungalows in the Cook Islands), five luxury waterfront bungalows the beach, nine beachfront bungalows and 16 garden bungalows.
For the perfect honeymoon try the Overwater Bungalows which are situated on the lagoon. The stunning bungalows include a private outdoor garden shower for the ultimate in romance.
And while you enjoy the stunning views and picture-perfect beaches, you can think of those who decided to take a chance on the British weather.
