Cook Islands the Gem of the Pacific Ocean comprises of 15 islands scattered over 2.2. million square kilometres of sparkling Turquoise Waters. Spend 5 nights exploring this Polynesian haven before spending 2 nights in the ‘Hip’ Santa Monica area of Los Angeles.


Depart London Heathrow on award winning Air New Zealand to Rarotonga via Los Angeles, on arrival there is a Fresh Flower Lei greeting at Rarotonga International Airport. Your transfer is a shared coach journey to the Muri Beachcomber Resort for five spectacular nights including a tropical breakfast daily.

Nestled between Muri Beach and the mountain slopes in lush tropical gardens, this relaxed resort has a choice of villas with either garden or sea views.

Rarotonga is one of the easiest islands to explore, there are two buses, which travel round this small Island clockwise or counter clockwise, stopping at hotels and resorts along the way for you to jump on or off to discover one of the friendliest Islands. Hire a scooter or car or even cycle around the 32 kilometre circumference. The main town is Avarua with several restaurants, shops and boutiques, do visit the Saturday morning market where you can purchase tropical fruits, clothes and local crafts, do look out for Black Pearls in the Jewellery shops which are indigenous to this region and quite inexpensive. Experience eclectic tropical cuisine in either the seaside restaurants or resorts which welcome guests who are not staying at their hotel, included in your holiday are four dining vouchers to the value of NZ£50 per person per day.

The Island is circled by a coral reef forming a peaceful blue lagoon making it quite safe for swimming, explore the underwater world and snorkel through the turquoise waters. Head South West for some fantastic beaches and protected marine reserve, there are local diving schools for lagoon diving for beginners, or complete your PADI qualification for open diving and really explore this underwater paradise.

During your stay, we have arranged a complimentary Island Discovery Tour along with a Highland Paradise Sunset Island dinner.

After 5 spectacular nights in this tropical paradise, there is a coach transfer back to the airport for your Air New Zealand flight back to Los Angeles.
