A reminder to book your clients in for the wonderful festive season activities our team has planned at Pacific Resort Aitutaki and Pacific Resort Rarotonga. Please keep in mind this available for our resident guests only. We hope they will be able to join us.
On Christmas Eve, resident guests at Pacific Resort Aitutaki are invited to join our annual Manager’s Christmas Cocktail Party by the sea from 6pm–7pm at Black Rock. To celebrate the coming of Christmas, our chefs will be presenting a special five course Christmas Eve Dinner with all the trimmings.
Christmas Day will begin with fresh homemade Egg Nog at breakfast. In the evening, our chefs will prepare a spectacular Christmas Night Buffet Dinner where you can feast on a wide variety of international dishes and traditional island specialties complemented by fine wines and tropical cocktails.
Boxing Day is a time to experience the true culture of the Cook Islands. Our team encourage all visitors to head out after breakfast to watch the traditional “Koni Raoni” or ‘Dancing around the Island Parade”. This annual holiday procession follows singers and dancers of one Aitutaki village as they wind their way around the entire island to other villages on Aitutaki. Everyone is welcome to join in the festivities.
On New Year’s Eve, we will welcome 2020 to Aitutaki in grand style with a spectacular five course dinner at our renowned Rapae Bay restaurant. After dinner the thrills begin with a performance by the famous Aitutaki Fire Dancers, a beach bonfire, a spectacular fireworks display and our traditional champagne toast. To help ring in the New Year there will be live music throughout the evening and Black Rock will stay open until the stroke of midnight.
Pacific Resort Rarotonga will be hosting their annual Christmas Day Buffet Lunch in the Garden Marquee, which is an extremely popular event. The Buffet Lunch will also be accompanied by live entertainment, so don’t miss out and get there early for the best seat in the house.
Our New Years Eve Gourmet Buffet dinner, including live entertainment and Polynesian dance show, will be held in the Sandals Beachfront Marquee and will provide the perfect atmosphere to see in the New Year in style. Our talented chefs are currently designing a locally inspired New Years buffet, we are anticipating it to be a true culinary delight!
For those who are looking for a more casual and relaxed evening on New Years Eve look no further than the Family BBQ option held in our Garden Marquee. Perfect for those looking for a relaxing atmosphere with good company.
As a result of the success of our Christmas Day and New Years events, many of our resident guests in past years have missed out due to the events being sold out prior to their arrival into the Cook Islands. Our festive season events are a great highlight for our guests and we highly recommend you pre-book and pre-pay as soon as possible and at least 14 days prior to your arrival (the earlier the better in fact).
