Hotels with twin beds?

Hi,

I am taking my 25 year old daughter to Aitutaki next year - can anyone tell me which hotels etc. have 2 single beds in their rooms?

Also, any suggestions for a not too romantic hotel - we don't want t be the only non-honeymoon couple there :)

Thanks... Stevo

Kia Orana Stevo, and welcome to our Cook Islands forum.

For Aitutaki accommodation I suggest you consider some of the accommodation properties that have larger room space, or separate bedrooms even providing plenty of room space to spread out.

Have a look at Rino's Motel which is situated next to the lagoon nearer to the main town centre. Rino's has spacious self catering units, yet handy enough to island dining options. onsite rental vehicles.

Tamanu Resort on the newer side has 1 bedroom units. Their super kingsize beds may be able to be separated into two singles. Onsite licenced dining, regular island nites with fire dancing, 2 swim pools - www.tamanubeach.com.

Paradise Cove has twin bed units, in adddition to other bedding configurations. Units are compact, pretty beachfront, licenced restaurant next door. The lagoon view units have more space for families - www.paradisecove.co.ck

Inano Beach has a family unit. This property is located in Ootu where there are a number of dining options and lagoon-based activiites. This would be a good option - www.inanobeach.com

Are Tai villas are on the northern side of Puffy's (one property away from Paradise Cove - stand alone 2 br self catering villas with all the mod cons and kayaks - www.aretaibeachvillas.com

Samade Resort has a unit with twin beds. Samade is also located at Ootu and is fully licenced. Breakfast provided, kayaks, absolute lagoon-side relaxation. Their villas are set in a private landscaped garden, across road from bar-restaurant.

All these properties cater to a wide range of visitors and are neither exclusively nor necessarily aimed at the honeymoon market.

Aitutaki is a particularly beautiful island. You'll both gain much enjoyment from your stay with a pleasant range of lagoon and land based activities, a well as endless relaxation spots to enjoy peace and tranquilty. The island nites, and the fishing club, are the places to be to meet many friendly locals and socialise!

Kia Orana Frangipani,

I thought I'd let you know that we have booked at Tamanu Beach from 12th July to 18th July. We can't wait and wish it was next month instead!

Thanks again for your advice.

Just in case anyone is looking for this information in future, we stayed for a week in bungalow #101 at Tamanu Beach Resort, we ended up with 1 king bed and 1 single bed which my daughter said was quite comfortable in, as if she had a choice!

So the bungalows there are OK for 1 adult with an adult child, 2 parents with 1 child, or even 3 adults if you don't mind sharing 1 sleeping area and 1 bathroom.

There were 3 or 4 plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, but only 2 bar stools and 2 outside chairs on the deck so they are really designed for 2 people.

I know that people search these forums so I wanted to record the information for others to see in future, is it a problem RBB?

I use TA a lot for research and I like to give something back with reviews etc.

Aitutaki is a fantastic place and I will try to get there again, and TA helped us have a better holiday so I want to share the information for others to use.

No problem Stevo. Any and all information will be useful someday for someone. TA is a very useful tool for trip planning. Some people just don't know how to use it sometimes!!

I would also like to point out how useful it was that you reported back after your trip. Those of us who are very regular TA users really need this sort of information. So thanks for the very useful posts.
