Two weeks in paradise (Aitutaki) booked to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

Visiting Aitutaki in the Cook Islands (deep in the South Pacific) back in 2010 on our honeymoon was one of the most incredible weeks of our lives. Being located in New Zealand and so much closer to this wonderful place we have decided to return to the beautiful island of Aitutaki to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary in August. Things book up ridiculously quickly in Aitutaki because it is such a tiny island and flights and accommodation are quite limited. So we have decided to get in early and have booked both our flights and accommodation.

Drinks overlooking the lagoonWe depart on Saturday 3rd August and arrive on Friday 2nd August – as we cross the international date line!! We are then staying for 2 weeks and return on Friday 16th August.

We have booked to stay in a wonderful holiday house (pictured below) called Are Kapakapa where the hosts Miles and Emma have already been incredibly lovely and helpful via email. Last time around we stayed in a small villa resort (which was very pricey!) but this time around we know the island a bit more and have chosen a more spacious and private holiday house.

Have a look at Wiki’s travel guide for more info on Aitutaki if you are interested. Aitutaki has a population of just over 2,000 people and is only just under 7 square miles!  Visiting really is like going back in time to an untouched and unspoiled world, and it is exactly like the picture postcards of paradise. We can’t wait for our return to paradise!
