I have decided this (what do you think?)

Next year in my honeymoon I have decided this:

I will be in new zealand 15 days in capervan and after that in 4 of april I will go to total relax to Rarotonga Beach Bungalows, I have this questions about rarotonga beach bungalows:

-The first week of april how will be the water? (cold?) and the temperatures? Because I am from North of spain and here I am all the year with low temperatures and rain, and I don´t want more.

-Is there white sand and turquoise water?

-I want to desconect and to have total relax, is that place ideal for that?

Thank you for your help

We visited Raro for a long weekend from NZ a while back and it was very relaxing. We had 4 days and wanted more. The water was beautiful and blue.

We satyed at Muri beach hideaway http://www.muribeachhideaway.com/ in a water front bungalow - beautiful decor and you could look straigh out the glass front at the water. It was very quiet and relaxing. The owner operator was soooo friendly and helpful. The only disadvantage was being a small place it had no resturant, but there were plenty of other around.

There are also plently of larger resorts you can stay at if that what your after that have larger pools and resturants.

Raro beach bungalows was full when we were there.

Have just returned, would suggest looking at Apartments kakera.

Check out their website, we found this truly accomodating and met our needs.

Depends if you want the resort thing or the quiet honeymoon!.

Own plunge pool, private beach access, 15 minute walk to Muri (east side) well appointed villas.

Didn't see this poster earler, so sorry it's late. Hope you still see it.

1) Water temps are at their peak around April so you can expect temps of about 80 F/27 C and possibly even a couple of degrees warmer (very nice).

2) Yes

3) Yes

Hi buddy hope I'm not too late for this one, but , we've just come back from our honeymoon on an RTW, (vegas, Cooks, OZ, NZ, Tokyo) for five weeks and stayed at the Palm Grove on the south of the Island, it was fab. We chose a beach bungalow (hut on stilts on the beach...let me know if you want some pictures) It was a good prce and was more the of the real Raro...and it was all booked over the net even better. They pick you up from the airport the lot.

Raro Beach Bungalows looked very nice and are on a great snorkeling/kayaking beach. Its a very small property (I think 5 bungalows) but is directly next door to Moana Sands which is a 3/4 story hotel with a good restaurant. It looks like a perfect spot to relax!
