Hotels in Atiu: Atiu Villas is located on Atiu Island on the outskirts of the central villages. Atiu Island is one of the three "must visit" islands in the Cook Islands. Air access is easy especially when combined with a visit to the island of Aitutaki. The siting of Atiu Villas provides a quiet and relaxing environment surrounded by an extensive tropical garden, pineapple fields and a view down a jungle clad valley to the ocean. It is only a short walk to the white sandy beaches of the southern coastline. Atiu Villas are unique in that the chalet style villas are made almost entirely of local native timbers and materials and feature the polished woods of mango, coconut, red peanut, acacia, cedar, Java plum and many other tropical trees. Each villa has a private verandah, cooking facilities, separate bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities and a feature not often seen elsewhere, a fully stocked larder which guests can use and pay for what they use on departure. The larders are well-stocked with dairy food, beverages, packaged and tinned food. The villas have varying bedding configurations that can take from 2 to 6 people.
