There was a time when all you heard about were island resort weddings, but in the past few years, couples getting married in Rarotonga have started looking outside of the big resort package experience and increasingly towards exploring the holiday home offering.
This makes a lot of sense when you’re on an island small enough to get around in less than half an hour!
There’s really no need for an onsite restaurant when there are so many good food options – from the night markets to beachfront cafes and restaurants. You’re never more than a 15-20 minute drive from anywhere on Rarotonga – including the beaches!
Here at the Cook Islands Holiday Villas, we have a range of homes to suit all budgets and group sizes, meaning you can bring the family and a whole bunch of friends to celebrate with you. And of course, we still offer everything you need for a perfect island wedding.
Aere maru… In Cook Islands Maori that means to ‘take it easy’ and that’s exactly how we want our guests to feel when they stay in any one of our well-appointed and comfortable villas.
We have a total of nine villas scattered around the main island of Rarotonga. If you’re travelling with kids in the group, then our four and five bedroom villas can house everyone either on the same property or within close distance of each other. The groom and his mates can take one villa while the bride and her bridesmaids can stay in our absolute beachfront Muri Lagoon Villa the night before the wedding.
Staying in our holiday villas gives you the added advantage of three different beach locations to hold the wedding ceremony and four locations to choose from to hold your wedding reception onsite.
Another great thing about our lush, tropical island setting is the natural beauty, which means there’s no need to go overboard with decorations.
In fact, our whole environment, from the soft warm air, vibrant colours, the smells and chilled vibe, sets the perfect atmosphere for the biggest, most important occasion of your life.
