We're already big fans of Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa, a private island resort that sits directly on the Aitutaki Lagoon in the gorgeous Cook Islands. With its great accommodation (including overwater bungalows) and its very own spa, what's not to love? It's the perfect location for honeymooners or couples looking for their perfect island holiday, effortlessly combining luxury and Polynesian charm in a world-class resort.

We've been given even more reason to put the ever-romantic Aitutaki on our 'must visit' list – no doubt you'll agree with us!

A 2-minute ride by small private ferry boat from the main island of Aitutaki, this intimate boutique bungalow resort rests on its own private isle complete with the Cook Islands’ only Overwater Bungalows, NEW Premium Beachfront Bungalows and luxury private pool villa, Royal Honeymoon Pool Villa ‘Te Arau’. That's right, completely private. Whiling away the hours with your honey... romantic bliss, right?

Aitutaki have announced the completion of their enormous makeover – $2 million worth, that's certainly nothing to sneeze at. The making of their new look included the refurbishment of ALL bungalows, upgrades to the Beachfront bungalows (they're now premium!), public areas and kitchens (think even more fabulous food). The already-stunning bathrooms of the Deluxe Beachfront Bungalows got a definite change – they're now triple the size, and also have a separate outdoor shower for the ultimate romantic island experience. WiFi's also available in all bungalows and public areas (and don't check your work emails! Use the WiFi to share stunning pictures of your romantic getaway or honeymoon with your Facebook friends instead). Their SpaPolynesia Aitutaki has also been expanded and revamped, so you definitely need to get some relaxing and rejuvenating couples' treatments done! Last – but certainly not least – the nearby beach and lagoon areas have been given a beautiful refurbishment that we're dying to check out for ourselves.

If you're in the market for a romantic couples escape to the Cook Islands, we would definitely encourage you to give Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa a look. And don't just go to check out their new look – you're there to experience the beauty of the Cook Islands, the culture, and the friendly staff.
