1. Pacific Resort Aitutaki

Welcome to one of Aitutaki’s (and the Cook Island’s) most luxurious resorts. What’s more, it’s exclusively for guests aged 12 years and above. Stay on the absolute beachfront or down any one of the winding garden footpaths with botanical displays and a historical marae. Either way, you’ll get to enjoy the surroundings through endearing features like an outdoor shower and/or glass-panelled garden shower, private deck and more. When you’re not in your stylish island-inspired bungalow or villa, relax at the resort’s infinity pool with a waterfall, make use of the complimentary watersports equipment, or dine in the elevated restaurant overlooking the beach and lagoon.

2. Etu Moana Boutique Beach Villas

Combine an adults-only retreat with sustainable holidaying at Etu Moana Boutique Beach Villas. There are just eight bungalows lining the gardens on their way to the beachfront at this boutique accommodation. Whether you want to self-cater in your bungalow or join your friendly hosts for a toes-in-the-sand barbecue or poolside pizza (depending on what day it is), the choice is yours. You also have the option to explore the island guilt-free on the accommodation’s e-scooters or the lagoon using the SUP boards and kayaks available. Oh, and the stargazing is incredible with Etu Moana’s nighttime illumination kept to a minimum.

3. Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort

The five-star Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort is the only resort in the Cook Islands with overwater bungalows but even its lowest tier of accommodation literally sits on the white sands of the resort’s own private island. There’s easy access to Aitutaki’s main island with a two-minute resort ferry, but we’ll forgive you for feeling that the resort, with its included in-house activities and paid extras including a spa, has everything you need. We also list this accommodation in the 10 Most Romantic Honeymoon Resorts in Aitutaki.

Within walking distance of the dining and watersport hub of Ootu Beach, Tai Roto Bay Beach Villas offers a convenient location yet a world of its own on white sands backed with coconut palms. Your modern beachfront, beach-view or garden bungalow has the self-catering facilities you need to enjoy a quiet night in, while breakfast is included. Also included are watersports gear to make the most of the lagoon on your doorstep. See more options like this in the 10 Best Boutique Resorts on Aitutaki.

5. Aitutaki Escape

An unforgettable experience awaits at the design-driven Aitutaki Escape, consisting of just two blissfully private one-bedroom villas and one two-bedroom villa. The age limit is 12 years old, not that you’ll notice the other guests from your enclosed piece of paradise with a private pool and private access to the beach. Entertain in your own spacious contemporary kitchen or indulge in a private dinner under the stars on a private beachfront deck affectionately known as the “helicopter pad”.

6. Tamanu Beach Resort

While not exclusively an adults-only resort in Aitutaki, Tamanu Beach Resort has its own adults-only space in the Purotu Wing (no 12 years and under). The resort boasts the slogan “casual luxury”, leaning more on the casual side when it comes to service and features. The stylish bathrooms and outdoor showers, however, are truly where the bungalows shine. Of course, all of the usual watersports equipment is at your disposal to make the most of the lagoon.
