Ok...We are two "honey mooners" and we visited Cook islands in the second part of our trip after visiting Fiji islands. We thought Fiji was pure paradise (and it definitely is!) but Cook islands are the Paradise VIP Lounge! Just mind blowing.
In Rarotonga we stayed at The Little Polynesian. It matched exactly what we were expecting from the Cook islands: white sandy beach literally three steps away from the beachfront bungalow's front door, crystal clear water where you can actually swim (the water is not as shallow as in other areas), delicious food (the Chilean chef Carlos mixes traditional and international ingredients perfectly), a stylish room and least but not last, amazing people. This is what really makes the difference in this place: as soon as you walk in the Little Polynesian you are welcomed with the brightest smiles and a real friendly atmosphere. Here they say (and that would be Billie) that you come as a tourist and you leave as a friend. This is definitely true. We could name them all but we have already written a poem....
There is no internet access for guests but this is not necessarly a bad thing...you can just plug yourself off the real world!
Finally we defo recommend Little Polynesian to all couples!
Ciao a tutti, Massimiliano & RaffaellaMore
