Thank you so much for our lovely holiday with you. I think it was one of the most enjoyable, interesting, relaxing and remarkable holidays I've ever taken. You certainly made sure every aspect was as perfect as it could have been.

Excellent service for our Cook Islands group trip, even though I had to clean my own teeth, and tie my own shoes - everything else was done!

Dave’s Cook Island bowls tour blog – Day 1

We awoke to the soothing sounds of island life after a relaxing siesta in one of Edgewater Resort’s spacious rooms which look straight out onto a lush garden area littered with a variety of beautiful tropical flora, I’m not sure we could have asked for a better start to our bowls tour!


Following a delicious breakfast, we had an informative and comical orientation with our incredibly knowledgeable guide Tiki who helped get us clued up on the scenic little island we would be calling home for the next eight days and the friendly people who inhabited it.


After our chat with Tiki we all enjoyed a chance to relax and decompress, we spent most of the day soaking up the island vibes and engaging in some quiet downtime at least until happy hour started.


The drinks were soon flowing and we had a chance to chat and enjoy some light-hearted conversation and levity, besides the plentiful supply of alcohol we also got a chance to sample the delicious local delicacies and with the generous portion sizes helped line our bellies to the brim.


It was a very cultural evening too with lots of native dancing, singing and melodic drums which resonated through the night’s cool sea breeze, it was awesome experience and one I’ll never forget, those guys and girls sure know how to move and although my two left feet were somewhat lacking in the rhythm department I sure did have fun.
