TripAdvisor honours Pacific Resort Aitutaki as best of the South Pacific


20/01/2011 Cook Islands:

Pacific Resort Aitutaki has been chosen as one of the Top 10 Luxury Resorts in the South Pacific and Top 10 Resorts for Romance in the South Pacific by TripAdvisor® in its 2011 Travelers' Choice awards.

TripAdvisor®, the world's largest travel site, today announced the winners of its 2011 Travelers' Choice® awards. This year 676 establishments were recognized in the ninth year of the competition. Unlike any other hotel honors, TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice winners are based on millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions from travelers around the world.

"Based on reviews from millions of travelers around the globe, TripAdvisor is able to recognize the world's most outstanding hotels for the ninth year of the Travelers' Choice Awards," said Karen Drake, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. "Outstanding service, great value and top quality are hallmarks of our Travelers' Choice winners."

"We are absolutely delighted and honored to receive these prestigious awards", says Greg Stanaway, chief executive officer for Pacific Resort Hotel Group – Cook Islands. "we are thankful to Michael Shah, Resort General Manager, and his team for underpinning the excellence of what is today known as one of the World's Leading Island Resorts. Pacific Resort Aitutaki will continue to build on its high standards in all the areas that awarded us this great recognition."

Cause for further celebration for the Cook Islands and Pacific Resort is Air New Zealand's announcement earlier this month that it will operate direct services between Sydney and the Cook Islands from July 2011, making it the only airline to operate direct services between the two nations. Flights will operate once a week from July 4, 2011 until March 2014.
