We loved our stay at Aroa Kainga. Tricia was most helpful with organising our booking and was quick and efficient at communicating weeks out from our arrival. We arrived and met Sandy who was wonderful and full of knowledge and smiles. Sandy offered her help with anything multiple times a day, gave us great advice on the best restaurants, shops and other things to do, and continually made sure we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Mata was also very friendly and helpful with organising the payment of our bill. And who could forget Pumpkin the cat?!
The bungalows are perfect with pretty much everything you need during your stay. They're light, airy, and have such a friendly and comfortable atmosphere, it was that hard to leave. Fresh fruit, cereal, coffee, tea, milk, plus a full-sized fridge, bbq, 2-element stove, iron, ironing board, tv, dvd player, radio, snorkelling gear, reef shoes, vacuum cleaner, towels, toilet paper....the list goes on and on!
We loved the privacy of the rear deck and gardens, the bed was comfortable and the modern bathroom and kitchen were both extremely tidy and in good working order.
The bungalows are close to all of the important things - vehicle rental shop, dairy, scuba, coco putt, T's Tattoos, and of course the beach!
The only negative thing we could think of is if Aroa Kainga gets too popular and will be booked out for our next trip...this place is a hidden gem and when we return to Rarotonga, no doubt we will be checking Aroa Kainga first for availability.
We can't stop talking about Aroa Kainga and we much preferred it when we went to Little Polynesian afterwards (which was extremely disappointing and a huge ripoff in comparison).
Kiaorana to Sandy, Tricia and Mata. Thanks for the lovely stay. Aroa Kainga sits at 100% on our scale of awesomeness!
