A special getaway
Fantastic property to spend our 25th anniversary at. Very relaxing and on a great beach. Tim and Lucille are fantastic managers as were all that worked there. If you are looking for a special getaway on Rorotonga..this is the place. Note...if you are staying on Raro for a while, I suggest a scooter or car to get around. We got around on the public bus and the free e-bikes at Royals Takituma. Fantastic property!
