Even if you’re a seasoned world traveller, used to the immaculate white sand, warm waters, whispering palms and tropical beauty of castaway islands, Nautilus will take your breath away.
Rarotonga is so South-Pacific-Island beautiful that it doesn’t merely add another set of superlatives to the Robinson Crusoe castaway island cliché – it forces you to revise your list of the most stunning places you’ve ever seen.
So Nautilus Resort has a lot to live up to, and succeeds magnificently. The setting is pure white sand, turquoise lagoon, ultramarine ocean and faraway blue skies; backed by a dark green tropical forest. The resort itself is a worthy inclusion in your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the Cook Islands. Its villas give you direct access to the beach or gardens and the food is exquisite – prepared by world class chefs and reflecting the cultures of the people of the South Pacific.
