The Cook Islands consist of 15 islands with a total population of approximately 19,000, scattered over some 2 million square kilometres of the Pacific Ocean. They lie in the centre of the Polynesian Triangle, flanked to the west by The Kingdom of Tonga and the Samoas and to the east by Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia.

The Polynesians are unique and friendly.  They have their own language and government and enjoy a vigorous and diverse culture with significant differences between each island. Despite some 100,000 visitors a year to the capital island, Rarotonga, the Cook Islands are largely unspoiled by tourism. They offer a rare opportunity for people from the cities of the world to experience a lifestyle exuding warmth, happiness and respect.

Guest Testimonial

The Galapagos.  After Mashpi we were somewhat apprehensive and hoping that the luxury and diversity of the Lodge would not deter from the different experience that was awaiting us on the MV Eclipse. Wow!  The whole job lot with the crew, the guides, the food, the other guests and the islands and wildlife . . . .  just blew us away.  An American lady and her husband that we teamed up with on some trips said to us "How are we going to explain to friends and family back home about this place?"  We all agreed that you couldn't!
Thanks for organising the holiday Eleanor and thanks to A&K
