Cook Islands are one of the best kept secrets of the South Pacific – a place where the stunning white sand beaches and bountiful coral reefs are as unspoiled as its lively Polynesian culture.

Cook Islands consists of 15 islands with a population of only 22,000, spread over 1.85 million square kilometers in the Pacific Ocean, being the centre of Polynesia, with the Kingdom of Tonga and the Samoan islands to the west and Tahiti and French Polynesia to the east. The Cook Islands consist of two groups of islands, - the Northern Group which includes Manihiki, Rakahanga, Penrhyn, Pukapuka, Nassau, Suwarrow and Palmerston - and the Southern Group being Rarotonga, Aitutaki, Atiu, Mitiaro, Mauke, Mangaia, Manuae and Takutea.

This tropical paradise of lush islands and atolls, white sand beaches and blue lagoons, provides the ideal setting for any holiday.

The main island is the gorgeously lush Rarotonga, with its skyline of jagged green mountain peaks, bountiful plains of pawpaw, coconut, taro, pineapple and mango, and brilliant blue lagoon encircled by a protective coral reef.

The island consists of an interior made up of volcanic cloud draped mountains enveloped by dense tropical rain forest and surrounded by a lushly vegetated coastal plain that houses majority of the population and farming land. The main township of Avarua is located in the north east of the island and is the commercial centre, home to most of the government departments, the shipping port and is close to the airport.

Romance is Rarotonga’s middle name – imagine waking to the soft cool tropical breeze sweeping across the protected luminous aqua waters of the lagoon. By day, miles of white sandy beaches to explore, many you will have to yourself. And by night, world class restaurants, bars and nightspots for your wining, dining and dancing pleasure.

Cook Islands climate is hot and sunny all year round with higher rainfall from Dec to April.

The traditional language of the Cook Islands is Maori, however, English is the official language and most widely spoken. The currency is New Zealand dollars.

Cook Islands can be reached through flight connections from Fiji and New Zealand.

Muri Beach Resort is located on the south east corner of Rarotonga, right on stunning Muri Beach overlooking the tropical islet of Ta'akoka in Cook Islands.
