Pacific Resort Aitutaki Earns Conde Nast Traveller’s Recognition

Aitutaki, Cook Islands –(– There was more good news for Cook Islands tourism, when US readers of the world’s most prestigious travel magazine, Condé Nast Traveller, recently included Pacific Resort Aitutaki in their list of the Top 20 Resorts in Australia and The Pacific.

The 21st Annual “Reader’s Choice Awards” were announced at a gala function at the New York Public Library last month. The Condé Nast ‘Traveller’s Readers Choice Survey’ is the largest independent poll of consumers ‘preferences’ in the U.S. with over 32,663 readers voting in 2008.

Pacific Resort Aitutaki has been consistently recognized as one of the regions leading resorts winning many awards and accolades, acknowledging their pre eminence as a luxury resort.

“Naturally we are thrilled to gain the publicity this sort of award brings us” said Greg Stanaway, Pacific Resort CEO “it also recognizes the efforts of our people in Aitutaki and helps position the Cook Islands and Aitutaki as a quality destination. Given the relatively low number of North Americans visiting Aitutaki at this stage compared to other destinations voted on this list, we feel very proud of this ranking.”

Pacific Resort Aitutaki’s latest success follows on from recent accolades, when in October, it was named the best “Luxury Island Resort” in the world at the World Luxury Hotel Travel Awards and earlier, in June this year, when it was voted “Australasia’s Leading Boutique Resort” at the World Travel Awards.
