Flights to Rarotonga via Tahiti
Traveling to the Cook Islands outside of New Zealand and Australia?
We have great news for you! Our local airline Air Rarotonga with the support of the Cook Islands Government, Air Tahiti Nui, & the Government of French Polynesia, is very proud to announce the commencement of our first scheduled Pacific regional flight. We now have weekly flights from Tahiti to Rarotonga. If you are travelling to our shores you will now be able to transit through Papeete, Tahiti. This is a small step to start with one flight a week, but we hope this will grow into an important connection to our North America and European guest.

This is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa located in the village of Arorangi in Rarotonga.

Long Term Rentals
Our Blue Lagoon 5 Bedroom Villa and Blue Lagoon 1 Bedroom Villa are now on the long term rental market.

These villas were loved by many guests and we enjoyed seeing each of you enjoy our properties!
Whale Season in Rarotonga
Our big sea friends are back! Here in the Cook Islands we are blessed with 4 months of whale sightings from July right through to October. Their migration patterns vary year on year depending on ocean temperatures, but you generally see them during this period. These watching spots make for a fantastic whale watching experience where you can see the whales at play, up close and personal, from the shore line.
