The first and main island in the chain is Rarotonga, with its mountainous peaks of the inner island that are surrounded by the most spectacularly beautiful beaches and stunning lagoons of crystal clear water. It is a great option for people who want not only the privacy of their resort but love to get out and about. Despite only having a 32km circumference, there is so much to see, do and taste in the Cook Islands capital. Our picks here are:
A small luxury property located on the sands of Muri Beach. Nautilus Resort offers Polynesian inspired luxury in their private hotel suites or their 2 & 3 bedroom villas each with their own salt water plunge pool.
