The Cooks Oasis is located with the ideal mix of convenience and seclusion. Only steps away from a beautiful section of quiet beach and clear blue lagoon, our villas are situated on the sheltered west coast of the island, in the village of Arorangi, home to picture perfect sunsets and mild breezes. Known as the quiet side of the island, we also have the best chance of spotting a whale between July & October. A true oasis of tropical tranquility, it is difficult to believe we are a mere ten-minute drive from the airport and fifteen minutes from the main township of Avarua. Within easy walking distance are a great selection of restaurants, and the best bakery on the island is just across the road.
On the island of Rarotonga there is no free “shuttle” service to and from the airport. Asking us to arrange your airport transfers is nice and easy, as we work with two Transfer Operators on the island. Transfers can be reserved with your booking at a rate of $25 per person, one way. If you are interested in a rental car, we can book this for you at a very competitive rate and have the car ready and waiting at The Cooks Oasis or at the airport for your arrival.
Public Transport buses do run during the day and limited hours in the evening, it is possible to take your luggage on the bus – be prepared for an extra charge for your bags. Grab yourself a 10 trip concession card from the bus driver if you are planning to use the bus for a few trips on Rarotonga, this works out to be quite cost effective!
