Pacific Island paradise holiday resort

With travel between New Zealand and the Cook Islands likely to reopen soon, we’ve created a plan for keeping our guests and Cook Island residents safe from Coronavirus. The Cook Islands hasn’t had a single case of Coronavirus so we look forward to welcoming our Kiwi guests back to our safe little paradise very soon!

We have signed up to the Cook Islands Promise: The Cook Islands Promise is a joint commitment between hosts and guests to safeguard the health of our island communities and our visitors. The actions of our promise will endeavour to keep the Cook Islands safe from Covid-19.

We will be registered for contact tracing: CookSafe is the contact tracing system that has been approved by Te Marae Ora/Ministry of Health. Motu has signed up to this in order to keep our guests and staff safe.

Pragmatic physical distancing: We will be avoiding crowded places, close contact settings and confined or enclosed spaces, and we recommend our guests do the same. If within two metres of people outside your bubble, avoid direct contact, especially those who are vulnerable.

Good Hygiene: We will be washing our hands regularly. Masks are encouraged if someone has a cough or if physical distancing is not possible.

Disinfection: Avoid unnecessary touching of items in stores or surfaces.

Reception: Be prepared for minimal contact at check in and check out.

Luggage: To avoid unnecessary physical contact, your luggage may be delivered directly to your door.

Servicing of Rooms: We encourage contactless servicing of rooms and ask for your assistance to vacate the room during room servicing hours.

Food and Beverage: We encourage you to make the most of your villa kitchenette in order to avoid busy eateries and bars.
