Kia Orana,

 

It gives us immense pleasure to convey our thanks to you for our stay in Cook Islands last month. We really had a great time while in Aitutaki and Rarotonga. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa (staying in an Overwater Bungalow was the highlight of the trip!) and The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa (our Beachfront Suite - in what is now your new adults-only resort, Sanctuary Rarotonga - was superb!). The team at both places was warm and friendly, and the food was lovely. We will cherish the memorable moments we had, and it truly has been a unique experience.

 

We feel pleasure recommending both places to our friends and relations and the excellent facilities available. We will be back in Dec’10/Jan’11 with extended family and we’ll definitely be staying at Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa and The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa.  

 

Thank you once again!

 

Warmest Regards

Nischint & Lokpreet Sadana, February 2010
