THINGS TO SEE AND DO WITH LITTLE ONES IN OUR LITTLE PARADISE!

What is there to do with kids in the Cook Islands? SO MUCH!….
Family is a significant part of Cook Islands culture, our resort teams will warmly welcome you, and you will leave feeling as though you are very much a part of our family.

TOP THINGS TO DO WITH KIDS IN RAROTONGA…

Explore our underwater paradise. Muri lagoon is the perfect spot for families to enjoy a beautiful, safe lagoon for swimming with lots to see while snorkelling, kayaking or  paddle boarding.
Experience Island night – ask our resort team to book you in for one of the cultural nights available on the island and experience a traditional umu (earth oven),  Cook Island drumming, music and dancing.
Indulge in great food! – fresh fruit and fish, drinking nu (baby coconut), and island fries are a hit with the kids!
Visit the markets – the vibrant Punanga Nui market on a Saturday is a must do. The Muri night markets are just a short walk from Pacific Resort Rarotonga, offering a relaxed island vibe.
Cultural experiences – learn how to make a flower ei, explore the tropical flora, play a few strums on a ukulele or beat the drum.
Our ‘Kids Club’ offers a range of interactive cultural and beach focused activities and is complimentary for Pacific Resort Rarotonga and Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa guests aged from 6 to 12 years old.  Children under six years are also welcome with supervision of a caregiver.

Kids stay, play and eat breakfast for free with us during their stay. (does not apply outside of standard occupancies when additional charges apply for 3rd person)

 

OUR PACKING TIPS FOR A STRESS – FREE HOLIDAY…

Sweet dreams – ask in advance about what you may need in your room (e.g. Porta-cots are available to hire, so you don’t need to bring your own). Also, bring some home comforts to make evening routines easier.
On the move – if you’re an active adventurer, make sure to bring your buggy or carry pack with you. Car seats can be pre-booked with your car rental on the island.
Sun smart – reef safe sunblock, hooded towels and rash shirts as the kids are bound to spend tons of time in the sun.  Also, bring reef shoes for rock hopping adventures and pack a snorkel too.
First aid – your own first aid kit is always handy, including antihistamines and plasters.
