Anyone who knows LFW knows about our annual pilgrimage to Rarotonga—16 years and still going strong! Last year we checked out luxury accommodation, and on our most recent visit we checked out our favourite eating places. Now these are not ultra-fancy or fine dining (read expensive), they just offer great food, service, excellent location, and value for money. So if you’re thinking of visiting this tiny tropical island paradise—check out these places! By Aine Dowling.
I’ve been visiting Rarotonga every year for the past 15 years or so and apart from the beautiful beaches and lagoon, the never-ending sunshine and tropical beauty, and the friendly people, there are also great places to stay. You can choose from luxury resorts, bungalows on the beach, family resorts, holiday rental homes, backpacker dorms, and beach houses and apartments. Earlier this year I explored the luxury end of accommodation and was fortunate enough to visit four top-end resorts on the island. Check them out for your little touch of Pacific paradise!
