My wife and I first visited here in 2015 to celebrate a major anniversary. Before we left that year we agreed that we MUST return. This year we did and we are resolved to return as often as possible. Travel directly to Rarotonga from the U.S. is not especially convenient, but we consider it worth whatever inconvenience is involved.
The hotel staff, although it has evolved a bit, is still exemplary for graciousness, good cheer, and overall service. An included photo shows the card they left on the bed when we checked in to our room. The ground floor beachfront room is convenient to the beach, the courtyard, and the restaurant. Same goes for the restaurant staff. Offering vegan meals seemed to be no special effort to them, although we know otherwise.
Since the hotel is on the east side of the island, sunsets are not a major attraction at the hotel. However the spectacular sunrises compensate. We made it a point to be up before sunrise to chat with the man who raked the sand beach and to enjoy the view.
One person who lives on the island referred to it as “Paradise” in conversation. We can’t disagree.
