There are lots of destinations in the South Pacific that have properties which advertise romance, ambience, atmosphere and the term hideaway, which would indicate that they would be ideal for a special occasion. However, on reaching their destination and having assumed that the description was correct, many couples are utterly disappointed at what they find. Especially when looking for the fulfillment of the terms used above, only to see in their accommodation choice, that there is a half used candle sitting in the middle of the table, and a rocky beachfront which is not ideal for an evening stroll, no sunsets to sit and watch, or sunrises to see coming up. This leaves them feeling completely shortchanged by their “romantic” honeymoon resort.
Some of the most beautiful places to stay in the South Pacific are located in Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Rarotonga has many truly romantic properties, but it is important that research is done correctly. This means delving into the internet and using appropriate keywords to find the right destination. The terms, romance, Rarotonga, Cook Islands, luxury, accommodation, exclusive, villa and private, are all good terms to search under.
When you find a range of choices in the destination area you are searching under, then it pays to look further into each property and see just what is offered to ensure peace of mind in that it lives up to what it says and if it is in fact a romantic honeymoon resort. There are many ways to test this, by firstly asking what inclusions are provided in the rates that only apply to honeymooners and then asking if the property offers things like :- Champagne or bubbly on arrival- Honeymoon cakes- Massages for two- Added bonus tour inclusions- Sunset on the beach dinner hamper for two- Candlelit villa or room on arrival complete with petals or chocolates on the bed at nightThings such as this will indicate that special thought has been given to what is really a very special occasion.
Many properties also have “honeymoon packages” which are tailored to suit these special occasions. These can include the couples massages, or any of the other added bonus inclusions mentioned above and do represent a good choice for a romantic honeymoon resort Rarotonga. Often because these inclusions are absorbed into the rates of the property, they do represent great buying and an opportunity to enjoy this special holiday at a very substantially discounted rate.
It has become very popular now to advertise locations and destinations for special occasion holidays. More and more resorts, boutique villa properties and accommodation places in general are getting into the special occasion holiday setting and giving more and more thought to value added inclusions in their rates. Especially is this the case in the South Pacific including Rarotonga where the name alone conjours up the feeling of romance – tropical palms swaying in the breeze, beautiful sunsets at night and stunning sunrises to enjoy together etc.
Hopefully the above points are helpful in the decisions that are made when choosing a romantic honeymoon resort or boutique luxury villa accommodation property in Rarotonga Cook Islands.
