1. Aitutaki Lagoon Private Island Resort
The five-star 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 accommodation literally sits on the white sands of the resort’s private island. There’s easy access to Aitutaki’s main island with a short resort ferry but we’ll forgive you for feeling that the resort, with its included in-house activities and paid extras such as the spa, has everything you need for your honeymoon or romantic getaway. The resort also offers wedding services should you want to tie the knot here – find out more in the 7 Best Wedding Venues on Aitutaki.

2. Etu Moana Boutique Beach Villas
Combine a boutique accommodation setting 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 couples’ accommodation exclusively for adults. 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. See more sustainable stays in the 10 Best Eco Resorts in the Cook Islands.

3. Pacific Resort Aitutaki
Impeccably presented, design and service-driven, Pacific Resort Aitutaki is an easy option for couples looking for five-star luxury. Stay on the absolute beachfront or down any one of the winding garden footpaths with botanical displays and a historical marae. Either way, your bungalow will capture the breathtaking 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, and dine in the elevated restaurant overlooking the beach and lagoon.

4. Tai Marino
There are just two bungalows on the beachfront of this locally-owned accommodation, so tranquillity is all part of the parcel for couples lucky enough to stay here. What’s more, Tai Marino is significantly more affordable than the Aitutaki honeymoon accommodations that have appeared on this list so far. That’s not without losing a stunning beachfront location, access to kayaks and your own lounging space with hammocks under the palm trees. The bungalows are highly functional with self-catering facilities should you want to prepare your own romantic dinners.

5. Abera’s Aitutaki Villas
Two modern poolside villas await at Abera’s Aitutaki Villas. Either cool off in the pool that you share with only one other couple or head down to the beach to make use of the complimentary SUP boards and kayaks. That’s not all that is included to make your entire honeymoon/romantic getaway a breeze; scooters, a barbecue and cooking facilities are all included with your bungalow. What’s more, you’re just moments away from the Pacific Resort and Amuri should you want to dine out.

7. Aitutaki Village
In the heart of the dining and lagoon cruise hub of Ootu Beach, Aitutaki Village offers bungalows, as well as a surprisingly diverse wedding service where you can get married on one of three uninhabited lagoon motu or a sandbank (wink-wink). But we digress. Couples have a choice of a standard or premium bungalow at this three-star accommodation with the premium set a little closer to the beach (but you still need to cross the road to get the to accommodation’s sunloungers and restaurant). A continental breakfast is included in your stay.
