One last honeymoon night in Rarotonga

One last honeymoon night in Rarotonga

We'll be spending two weeks in the Cook Islands for honeymoon in late August/early September. We'll be coming back to Rarotonga from Aitutaki around 9 am on Friday and then our flight home to LAX is at midnight on Saturday night--so we have almost two full days in Rarongtona.

I'm looking for suggestions for a place to stay for the last night of our honeymoon. We want to stay somewhere on the nicer end, but I'm having some trouble finding places that don't require three night minimums. Any recommendations? Also, would you recommend booking a place for two nights so that we have a base for Saturday during the day? Or is there anywhere that lets your rent a "day room"?

Kia Orana Ryan, welcome to the forum.

Congratulations on your forthcoming honeymoon.

Many accommodators require a minimum stay. It will be a matter of searching to find somewhere that has a a soft option in your situation. As far as having a base over Saturday until check-in, I suggest you do retain your room if you can. Otherwise your day could be spent finding somewhere to sit it out for quite a few hours. But you should be able to store your luggage at your accommodation, or at the airport lockers.

I do know that the Aquarius is set up to cater for short-term occupants, with much of their trade emanating from people in transit. Is there anything on www.wotif.com that provides for a 2 night stay? Sanctuary on the Beach (adults only) may have a less restrictive minimum night policy?

All the best. Kia manuia.

Kia Orana Ryan, have you checked whether or not the accommodation where you are staying in Aitutaki has a sister accommodation in Rarotonga? If so, you should be able to arrange something with them. Even if they don't, they may be able to arrange something for you.

You couldn't have picked a better place for your honeymoon. Best of luck
