Meri Kiritimiti from the Cook Islands!

Posted on December 15, 2020

Here in the Cook Islands, its not ‘Happy Holidays’ or ‘Merry Christmas’, but ‘Meri Kiritimiti’!

This time of the year is special, a time for family and friends to enjoy each others company, and to celebrate all things we hold dear and close, especially after this year we have had.  It is also a time for sharing a meal, and while we cannot always share in person with you all, we would like to bring a little Cook Islands cheer to your day.

“The holiday season in the Cook Islands is special, when friends and family come together to give thanks for all they are grateful for, and to spend time with those we love. Our households will have a large lunch as the main meal of the day, centered around family favourites with plenty of music and good cheer!”
– Head Chef, Luther Zainey
Pacific Resort Rarotonga
