I recently had eight nights on Rarotonga and stayed at The Kia Orana Bungalows. I wanted a simple beach house, at moderate cost, but in a beautiful setting. I knew that I was going to be doing a lot of exploring, and I've never really enjoyed Resort styled holidays. I found Kia Orana Bungalows through Trip Advisor, and decided to take the punt and book.
I could not have asked for better! The bungalow that I was in was right on the beach, it was simply furnished with everything I needed, and was spotlessly clean on my arrival.
There are only four bungalows, and only one other was occupied, but it still felt as if I had total privacy and it was rare to even see any one else using what I came to think of as "My Beach"
The location is ideal, with great restaurants close by, not far from town, and easy access to all the wonderful recreational activities that the island offers.
The Wednesday Night Night Market is two doors down, and offered wonderful, inexpensive food and craft all in a wonderful atmosphere.
If you want affordable, clean, simple accommodation in a breath-takingly beautiful spot I highly recommend this place. It's like having your own little kiwi bach all to yourself.
