My wife and I recently stayed at Kings Beach and it is truly a paradise. You have a golden sand beach and a turquoise lagoon only feet from your doorstep. You have an island you can wade out to at low tide tosnorkel and kayak. The unit itself has a seperate bedroom, a full kitchen, is well appointed and was spotlessly clean.
That being said, this report is more about the special care we received from the manager there, Ina Tuatai. My wife became seriously ill while there. We phoned Ina to enquire about a taxi...she would not have any of that and showed up immediately and took my wife and I to the medical clinic in town. My wife was then taken to hospital by ambulance with me at her side. A couple hours later, Ina showed up at the hospital with a huge goody bag of coffee, blankets, fish and chips and everything I would need to spend the night at my wifes side. There are no visitor services at the hospital, no cafeteria etc, so the care package was most welcome. Ina never asked for a penny for the things she brought me. My wife was in the hospital 6 days, as was I, as the hospital allowed me to sleep in the adjacent empty bed. Ina even offered to spend the night with my wife to give me a break....what a thoughtful angel. She then helped me, at my request, to rent a car and she then did the legwork for that so all I had to do was sign for the car. She offered me the use of her home computer so that I could cancel or alter our plans in Australia, and her daughter did much of the typing and formatting for me as she is skilled at that. Once I got my replies from the cancellations, Ina neatly packaged them and delivered them to me. My wife fortuneately recovered, but Inas work was not yet done. She phoned her friend at New Zealand air and arranged for my very frail wife to use the executive lounge at the airport prior to our departure where free cold drinks were offered. She also had her friend deliver a wheelchair to the lounge.
Ina and her daughter made a very difficult situation for my wife and I a much easier ordeal to handle. Ina and her daughter are the definition of Cook Island hospitality, and anyone staying there Im sure will be afforded the same incredible hospitality. My wife and I look forward to returning there to finish our beach holiday .
