6. Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort

The adults-only Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort might be the only resort in the Cook Islands with overwater bungalows but even its lowest tier of bungalow literally sits on the white sands of the resort’s own private island. For couples looking for a villa with its own pool, choose the “Royal Honeymoon Pool Villa”, but any bungalow has the “wow” effect at this five-star resort.

10.  Popoara Ocean Breeze Villas

Located where most of the lagoon action is at, Ootu Beach, Popoara Ocean Breeze Villas is well worth considering if you’re on a budget. Their spacious garden villas rival those of the mid-range villas available on the island in terms of presentation, yet also have the added convenience of vehicle rentals on-site, as well as the popular Boat Shed bar. Nestled among gardens away from the bar, however, you won’t hear a peep from the karaoke nights. See more options like this in the 8 Best Budget Accommodations on Aitutaki.
