DESTINATION

The Cook Islands are located in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of New Zealand. There are 15 islands spread over 2.2 million square kilometres of South Pacific Ocean. Rarotonga is the capital and the most thriving island, and home to the international airport. Only six hours from Australia by plane, the Cook Islands are blessed with warm weather all year round, white sandy beaches and stunning island resorts. A perfect playground for kids, The Cook Islands offers families an idyllic tropical retreat that is bathed in chilled-out charm and natural beauty. Along with its craggy volcanic mountains, dense green jungle, swaying palm trees and glorious bone-white beaches, the Cook Islands is surrounded by startlingly blue coral-stuffed lagoons, which are perfect for the kids to explore.


RESORT 

Moana Sands Beachfront Hotel and Villas are both located on Rarotonga’s stunning southern coast. The hotel, directly overlooking the idyllic Titikaveka Beach, features a variety of studios with stunning beachfront views. Evenings can be spent at Sands Restaurant & Bar and our popular Sunday night beach BBQ.


OTHER 

With a marine protected lagoon that offers swimming at all hours of the day, the lagoon is perfect for splashing about and snorkelling. A short walk down the beach will take you to the popular “Fruits of Rarotonga,” well known as one of the best spots on the island for snorkelling, where you will experience an abundant variety of colourful marine life.

Should you wish to venture out of the resort for a bite to eat, you will find there is a handful of great local café’s located nearby. Don’t forget to try the traditional Cook Island dish Ika Mata, a delicious marinated raw fish salad and refreshing Nu (drinking coconut).
