Akitua Island in the Cook Islands has a lovely private resort, the luxurious 5-star Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa. Lie on sweeping white beaches and wade in the blue-green waters that encircle this small islet. Luxury accommodations and a laid-back South Pacific atmosphere make this an idyllic getaway.
Learn about the legends and movie stars that add to the history of this tropical atoll. The first Polynesians came to Aitutaki through the Ootu Pass where the resort is located. In the 12th century, legend says the famed warrior Ru, his four wives and large family came to the island of Aitutaki through this pass. In the 1950s, John Wayne and Cary Grant traveled to Akitua during the age of Solent flying boats.
Stay in a private bungalow on the water and wake to picturesque views of the azure lagoon. Bathe in an open-air shower, relax in a hammock and shed all remaining tension with a spa and massage treatment.
Spend days on untouched beaches wading in luminous water. Explore Aitutaki Lagoon on a glass-bottom boat, sail to One Foot Island and walk on the ancient sandbar called Nude Island, named for its lack of vegetation. Snorkel or scuba dive in the marine reserve, windsurf, canoe or kayak on the lagoon, explore thick rainforest by day and look out over the Pacific Ocean to the night sky.
The resort offers many in-house activities. Move your hips in Polynesian dance lessons, keep your mind sharp with a game of giant chess or stay agile while crab hunting and crab racing. Make a sun hat from coconut palms and learn to play the ukulele while sitting in the shade under a tree.
As the golden sun sets over the water, sip a cocktail and listen to the sound of gently lapping waves. Akitua is located north of the Aitutaki Lagoon. Access the island by a 2-minute private ferry ride from Aitutaki.

We stayed here for 6 nights, the level of service from the airport pickup onwards was exemplary. With less than 100 guests the resort feels private, the staff know your names and you get the feeling that nothing is too much trouble. The beachfront access straight from the room made the stay extra ...
Paradise is the best way to describe this beautiful serene place. The units have their own slice of beach, and a beautiful pool as well. Wonderful facilities, natural timbers, & stone featured through out the unit. The hosts are fantastic, and having dinner under the stars is just one of the many ...
Our stay of 5 nights was superb. This resort is small and very friendly with quality ! The beachfront bungalow was fantastic. Lounging on the balcony listening to the waves breaking on the reef and watching the humpback whales ....heaven. Pip & Nick are excellent hosts and a great team guarantee ...
The venue is located in a garden setting in the middle of the island. The rooms have a reasonable standard of facilities but have seen better days. The swimming pool has been decommissioned. Take heavy duty mosquito repellent. Being inland we did not get sea breezes so it tended to be hot. We were ...
Too far out and you really need transport. No tv but that didnt really bother me. Not really a nice beach. Hotels dont supply shampoo or cond or soap. Lovely welcome from Ana.
