BEST FOR FAMILIES

Not many kids can say they’ve won a crab racing competition. Or that they’ve designed their own sarong. Or feasted on ika mata marinated fish made the traditional Cook Islands way. Or gone snorkelling in some of the clearest waters on the planet.

The Edgewater Resort and Spa, set in the sparkling South Pacific, is a family getaway like no other. Enjoy a game of tennis as a family, feast on a traditional buffet at Island Night, watch performances from local dances and the Panara Boys Band.


Why is this holiday great for kids?

DESTINATION

Rarotonga might be the largest of the 15 Cook Islands, but the welcoming locals, unspoiled natural marvels and tiny size make it feel familiar and intimate. Rarotonga is an easy 6-hour flight from Australia and boasts verdant jungle, sandy beaches, volcanic mountains and an abundance of coconut palms. With lots of exploring to be done, and plenty of splashing and snorkelling, you’ll all feel like you’ve been dropped in the middle of a postcard! 

The Edgewater Resort and Spa sits about 10 minutes away from Avarua by bus, and is only 4 kilometres from Rarotonga Airport. It is close to Black Rock Beach and plenty of restaurants should you choose to leave the resort. While you’re there, take a bike tour, boat tour or cultural tour for the day. Or hike the Cross-Island track passing by ‘The Needle’ peak.

Add a an Island Discovery Tour from $65 per adult & $35 per child

RESORT

Enjoy plenty of space and privacy in a two-bedroom apartment at The Edgewater Resort and Spa, with living space and a kitchen. Stretching out across 600 metres of pristine beach, The Edgewater Resort and Spa has a pool, slide, tennis courts and some of the best snorkel spots on the whole island. The delicious array of restaurants include a Brasserie, Spaghetti House and the option to join an Island Night with traditional food and performances.

The free Coconut Kids’ Club included in your package is perfect for children aged 4 to 12. Want to make your own Cook Island costumes, or decorate a coconut? Want to hunt crabs or learn basic Rarotonga greetings and dances? Kids will love the range of activities and grown-ups will enjoy the chance for some time off.

Add extra nights from $310 per family, per night


GROWN UP’S CORNER 

Coconut Kids’ Club for children aged 4 to 12 runs until 9pm at night, so make the most of the chance to have a cheeky date night at Mal’s Bar or one of the onsite restaurants. Grown ups can also indulge in a facial, a massage or other treatments at The Edgewater Spa.
