Resort Philosophy
We believe it is the people that make the difference. Experience the friendliness of our South Pacific island staff here at Club Raro. We have been happily servicing guests of Rarotonga since 1995. Founded with the same principles of friendliness that exist to this day, we strive to provide the most value for the best possible price. We feel like we captured that spirit with our first guest and we’d like you to feel that we captured it with your visit. There are reasons why over 50% of our guests have been with us before and we know exactly why. When we surveyed returning guests as to what was the major factors in their decision to return, the overwhelming majority said they felt we represented the best “value” in Rarotonga. The second most popular reason was our “friendly Cook Island staff” and third was our “excellent location”. So when it’s all summed up, Club Raro provides value for money, a warm and courteous South Pacific tropical island staff, and is conveniently located next to town and most of Rarotonga’s major events and attractions/ When we say that you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend, thats’s not just a catchy tag line…we look forward to your arrival, we’ll miss you when you leave and we truly can’t wait till you return again.
