Interaction with guests
We live on site and are here to answer any questions or help or advice with what to do, where to go, what to eat etc. but we are also happy to let you have your own space as you need it. We like to share travelling stories with our guests and normally have a shared dinner ( local UMU style) or BBQ after a
paddle board on the lagoon.

We moved from NZ to Raro in 2014, Kave ( or KT as he likes to be known) is from Cook Island parents, and Julie (or Jules ) is originally from the UK, and we are now lucky to call Rarotonga home. We have both travelled the world and stayed in a variety of accommodation and we hope these experiences have helped us provide a spectacular place to stay and experience our beautiful Island, we are here to help you as much as we can.
KT is a kiteboarding instructor and can teach you all you need to know to be riding our beautiful lagoon. We also offer night lagoon tours on our stand up paddle boards, sea scooter lagoon or Ocean tours, glass bottom kayak and SUP fitness classes and we also have cafe in Muri where we specialise in Cold Brew Coffee and barista coffees and specials, all our tours and activities and coffee is discounted to our guests. Jules is a qualified Podiatrist and Massage Therapist, offering massage which you can also enjoy in your studio. We have a dog called Tama who enjoys sitting on our paddle boards and trying to catch (unsuccessfully) the fish in the lagoon! We love sharing stories with our guests and encourage them to join us sharing our delicious cocktail, named after, of course, Tama!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Jules and KT oh and Tama!
