Chill-axing Raro Style
Ping” … the fasten seatbelt sign turns off, people start moving about the aircraft cabin, the door opens and you immediately know you’ve arrived. The warm tropical air penetrates the previously air-conditioned interior, sun streams through every window, and the smiling faces of the airport crew welcome you to a holiday idyll.
If it’s non-stop action, vast shopping malls and casinos you’re after, skip Rarotonga. If, like me, you want a totally stress-free holiday, indulging in tall, cool cocktails (at any time of the day) and great island cuisine, then you’ve found heaven. If you enjoy listening to the waves breaking on an ancient reef just metres from your beachfront accommodation … then Raro’s your kind of place.
