Pacific Resort Aitutaki Powers Into 2010 with More Top Awards
Aitutaki, Cook Islands, January 26, 2010 --( 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 2010 Travelers’ Choice awards. Now in its eighth year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best – real travelers.

Unlike any other hotel awards programs in the world, TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice® winners are based on the millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on™ and content from across the web.

“Inspired by the millions of trusted traveler reviews and opinions on, the Travelers’ Choice awards have once again highlighted the finest hotels in the world,” said Christine Petersen, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “From remarkable bargains to the trendiest hotels, travelers worldwide are recognizing more than 700 hotels for their outstanding service, value and quality.”

Pacific Resort chief executive officer Greg Stanaway says this award further consolidates Pacific Resort Aitutaki’s position as one of the world’s leading luxury resorts.

The Cook Islands and Pacific Resort anticipate 2010 will be a strong year for visitor arrivals underpinned by Air New Zealand’s announcement last month that it will operate direct services between Sydney and the Cook Islands in 2010, making it the only airline to operate direct services between the two nations. Flights will operate once a week for a four month trial period during the peak holiday season of July to October 2010.
