With two huge bedrooms and a spacious lounge/ dining/kitchen, there was more than enough space for the two of us. Would be the perfect place for a family or group of friends to stay. Clean, modern and spacious. Shallow plunge pool is very shallow,... More

We found Apartments Kakera through our travel agent.

Apartments Kakera is the perfect place to stay when visiting Raratonga. We stayed in the "Deluxe Family Apartment Karanga" which was massive in size, boosted tremendous views from both bedrooms out to the ocean, and was full of amazing architectural and interior design features.

“All of the apartments of similar quality only size would really determine which you would choose.”

“If the wind is up, get the room on the street side or turn off the security light to avoid the all night disco light affect.”

“Apartment Pepe is the nicest one but it's next to the road (however it's Rarotonga and not New York...apart from Saturday night it's really quiet). So if you are a light sleeper, you might prefer the other apartments located at the back.”
