Pacific Resort Aitutaki only Cook Islands property to make Stellar Stays list


Pacific Resort Hotel Group (PRHG) is delighted to announce that Pacific Resort Aitutaki has been named in HotelsCombined’s inaugural Stellar Stays Awards 2013. These awards have singled out 33 outstanding properties across Asia Pacific with Pacific Resort Aitutaki being the only Cook Islands property to make the cut.

HotelsCombined, the world’s leading hotel discovery and price comparison website, announced its “honour roll” list this week including the crème de la crème of hotels, with eight Australian properties recognised and another 25 from across Asia and the Pacific. Other properties in the region include the prestigious Four Seasons Bora Bora (French Polynesia), InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa (Fiji) and The Langham Auckland (New Zealand).

Kristen McKenzie, Head of PR and Community at HotelsCombined, said, “Judged on detailed criteria, the result is an independent selection of properties that are truly extraordinary on a variety of levels. Not only do these hotels boast a high satisfaction rating amongst both guests and travel industry experts, but they also strive to make a positive difference with dedicated environmental and community initiatives. Conscientious tourism is a subject we take very seriously at HotelsCombined as evidenced by our Green Hotels and Responsible Tourism Initiative. We are delighted to applaud those similarly working towards a more sustainable future for the industry.”

“A fantastic achievement for the group” says Pacific Resort Aitutaki Resort Manager Jason Strickland. “From the team on the ground at Pacific Resort Aitutaki thank you for all the hard work that gets done behind the scenes and at our other properties, past and present, that put us all in the position to achieve such recognition”. “It is a real honour to be named for this list that recognises forward thinking hotels in our region”.
