You can find all of the high end 5 star resorts on other websites. Here you'll only find the best of the cheapest accommodation in Rarotonga, giving everyone the opportunity to visit this holiday paradise for less than half the cost. A lot of these are close to if not next door to the high end places but without the high price.
The average price per night is $250+ in Rarotonga. While the 5 star treatment is nice, it's not always practical or needed. If you don't need to feel like royalty being waited on, have breakfast served to you in the morning or have extra services like tour bookings at a front desk, you have the option of finding all you need in the accommodation we've listed.
All accommodation at See Cook Islands is listed at under $200 per night. We have sourced the most affordable of the best located places to stay, with an average price of $100 per night for single/couples and $200 per night for families. These are the best finds and I can personally recommend these to you. They're all perfect places to stay on a budget. Just choose your preferred location, amenities and price to get the best accommodation for your needs while on your holiday.
Rarotonga has it all. Catering to a wide range of tourists. Once you leave your accommodation, you all become one: mixing with other tourists, locals and the beautiful surrounds it has to offer. It's definitely not just about the place you're staying at, but simply being here on the Island experiencing it the same way you would in a 5 star resort. We're all free to roam like the free range Island chickens here in Rarotonga.
