1. Save Money – Traditional wedding can cost several times the amount of a destination wedding 

2. Do Something Different – Forgo a typical wedding in favor of a unique and memorable experience 

3. Have the Best of Both Worlds – Combine your wedding and honeymoon into one beautifully planned celebration 

4. Crowd Control – Bring along the whole family for a fun celebration, or make it just the two of you 

5. Stress-Free Planning – Your Travel Consultant will work directly with the resort’s wedding coordinators 

6.  Perfect for Second Marriages – Scale it down the second time around and go somewhere special to wed 

7. Neutral Setting – Instead of getting involved in potential family drama, choose a neutral setting 

8. So Much to See and Do – With the many on-site activities at resorts, plus off-site fun, your guests will keep busy 

9. Celebrate Longer – Traditional weddings last 5 hours while a destination wedding fun can go much longer 

10. Expand on a Theme – Incorporate your love of the beach, the snow, your heritage, or something else special to you

Cook Islands

Cook Islands

Only about 20,000 people are permanent residents across this collection of 15 islands spread over 90 square miles, but more than four times that many travel here each year to experience an authentic, refined, and joyful Polynesian culture.

The main island Rarotonga, is the most visited destination.

It’s also the largest and most populated, and the gateway to the rest of the islands. Jungles and volcanic landscapes characterize the inland, while the coasts are filled with palm-fringed, white-sand beaches.

An enormous reef encircles the island, forming a lagoon that extends several hundred yards for excellent snorkeling and swimming, particularly on the southeast shores.

Despite being the second most-visited of the Cook Islands, Aitutaki manages to remain nearly completely untouched by the modern world.

Gorgeous beaches, a spectacular turquoise lagoon, and the coral islets that dot its eastern coast entice travelers who conscientiously take only pictures, and leave only footprints.

The heart of Polynesia rewards visitors with an exquisite, exotic experience that remains largely unchanged, even amidst a growing popularity as a vacation destination.

Come to the Cook Islands and live differently for a while.

Some of our suggestions:

* Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa

* Muri Beach Club

* Pacific Resort Rarotonga

* Sea Change Villas
