Captain Cook Hotel Wikipedia
Captain Cook Hotel is a hotel in Kiribati. It was the first hotel to be built on the island of Kiritimati and was named after Captain James Cook who discovered the island on Christmas Eve 1777. The hotel was built in 1975 on a former British military base and has been continuously owned by the Government of Kiribati.
The hotel has 24 rooms and the showers are heated using solar energy. All of the rooms are situated on the ground floor of the two wings of the hotel and open onto a courtyard overlooking the ocean beach.
There are also 20 standalone bungalow units, separate from the main buildings, although not all are currently in use (2015).
