This Cook Islands Overwater Bungalow Vacation was created for a honeymoon couple from Tampa, Florida. They wanted the privacy of their own overwater bungalow, but also wanted to get out and explore. The Cook Islands are a hidden gem of the South Pacific, where you can find the true essence of paradise.

They started their Cook Islands Overwater Bungalow Vacation on the main island of Rarotonga, where they rented scooters to get around this lush tropical island and explored the nightlife. They stayed in the luxurious Little Polynesian Resort. Little Polynesian is about total relaxation, intimacy, and enjoying the quiet yet spiritual environment that surrounds you. They enjoyed the romance of the gorgeous beach and colorful lagoon setting in their beachfront bungalow. 

Continuing their Cook Islands Overwater Bungalow Vacation, they flew to the island of Aitutaki to stay in an overwater bungalow for 3 nights. At Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa, they enjoyed the ultimate privacy, relaxation, and romance in their overwater bungalow, situated on one of the world’s most breathtaking lagoons. Here’s how author Steve Davey (Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die) described it: “No artist’s palette could ever conceive of a more perfect, more luminescent turquoise than that of the lagoon of Aitutaki, arguably the most beautiful in the world.”

In this truly heavenly setting, they whiled away the remainder of their honeymoon in complete bliss. Paddle boarding in the vibrant lagoon, private picnics on deserted islands, rejuvenating treatments in the spa, dipping their feet in the water and watching the sunset from their overwater home—each day was simply magical.

At last, it was time for them to say goodbye to their paradise in the Cook Islands. They flew back to Rarotonga to board their connecting flight home, filled with blissful memories from their Cook Islands Overwater Bungalow Vacation.
