Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa


The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa rests effortlessly on its own secluded, private island of Motu Akitua – the only private island resort in the Cook Islands. Just a 2 minute ride from the main island of Aitutaki by small private ferry, the isle of Motu Akitua is surrounded by broad, expansive beaches the color of champagne. From here, you as our guest are able to enjoy the only resort facing directly onto the world’s most beautiful lagoon, and from here, you can drink in spell-binding views of one of the Wonders of the World to your heart’s deep content.
Nothing will prepare you for the intensity, the vibrancy, the omniscience, of the lagoon’s blue expanse. So intense, so expansive, it is not just a color you see, it is a blue you feel with every fiber of your being.
This is the reason you have journeyed all the way across the oceans, to see, to feel, to truly experience the world’s most beautiful lagoon.
