New Adults-Only Resort in Cook Islands

Rarotonga in the Cook Islands will welcome a new adults-only beachfront resort, Sanctuary Rarotonga on the Beach, on Valentine's Day.

Sanctuary Rarotonga is a full-service deluxe resort for guests aged 16 and up, set on Rarotonga's white-sand shores of Aroa Lagoon Marine Reserve on the island's southwest coast. (Great for snorkeling!)

The property has 48 luxury Beachfront Suites and the Beach Pavilion restaurant offers views of both Aroa Beach and the swimming pool, allowing guests to dine poolside under the pergola or beachfront with their toes in the sand. Daily changing menus showcase the freshest seasonal tropical ingredients with the accent on fine Pacific cuisine.

Sanctuary Rarotonga offers two spa therapy centers: SpaPolynesia Honeymoon for his-and-hers pampering, or SpaPolynesia Luxe @ Lime Blossom Villa. SpaPolynesia Luxe features three spacious treatment rooms, a Couple's Sauna, Blue Bathhouse, open-air spa and poolside massage in the thatched pavilion.

Guests of Sanctuary Rarotonga can use all of the facilities of neighboring sister resort, The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa, located west along Aroa Beach. Families can stay at The Rarotongan (which features the Cook Islands' only Kids Club, with Kids Stay & Play Free, plus new Banana Beach Playland for infants and new Teen Zone), while adults within the group can relax at adults-only Sanctuary Rarotonga.

The resort is offering the following special offer to celebrate its grand opening:

• Special discounted nightly rates
• Complimentary his-and-her one-hour hydrotherapy package
• Complimentary bottle of New Zealand wine
