Our 4 nights at Atiu Villas was a highlight of our 2 week vacation in the Cook Islands. The accommodation is excellent and the island is a step back in time - no resorts, no souvenir shops, no restaurants or bars ( except Kura's Kitchen at the Villas).
We think we have seen the REAL Cook Islands here. Not as stunningly beautiful as Aitutaki, but very interesting, relaxing and a great place to have a beach to yourself.
Roger organised an island tour with Birdman George, a cave tour with Marshall, reef fishing with Andrew and a coffee tour with Mata - all great experiences.
The island night at Kura's kitchen was fabulous, with an excellent performance by the local villagers and delicious buffet dinner. We attended an island night at a resort on Aitutaki which was twice the price and half as entertaining.
We are privileged to have had the opportunity to visit Atiu while it is still an unspoilt island paradise.
