    This was one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed at. The service and attention to detail was world class. It was the perfect honeymoon getaway. The food at the hotel was also spectacular, we were sad we couldn't try everything on the menu! I highly recommend this hotel.

    Excellent Raro escape.

    Small hotel but by far one of if not the best spots to be on Raro. Updated bathrooms are awesome. Staff is amazing you should stop reviewing and book it. You do have to pay for WiFi but it is strong.

    A wonderful little gem on Rarotonga. The entire staff was very friendly, starting from the warm welcome (at 7am) all the way to departure. The food was outstanding. A perfect place to relax! Complimentary kayaks, paddle boards, fins, masks and snorkels.
