Discussing :: Escape Showcase: Rarotonga

Think Rarotonga and you think palm trees, white sand and coconut cocktails.  Right, now think The Feelers, Jake the Ukelele player who hasn’t missed serenading a flight in 25 years and a wedding planner with over 200 weddings a year on his books.

Escape Showcase: Rarotonga

Ahh yes, the island where dreams come true. Well almost. I have very fond memories of Rarotonga, including a random night out in a small bar hidden away next to the main bus stop. We ended up missing three buses, opting instead for 750ml beers with the locals as they had run out of smaller beers and wine. Ended up making friends with bar staff from the Rarotongan Resort where we went the next night. We were well reembered and were treated with a 'special' fish bowl cocktail! Yes, like many people have already mentioned, this is an ideal place for a wedding and honeymoon. In fact we may be planning ours there in the future! Gotta love the relaxed lifestyle and beautiful scenery!
