relaxing around the resort at Raro

We normally have quite adventurous holidays on the go racing around to see everything possible, but as we have been to Rarotonga twice before we decided to have a few days peaceful relaxation just lazing around the Resort. We have a lovely garden unit on ground floor with 2 sun loungers right outside the door; we made good use of them, lying in the sunshine reading our books, drinking coffee  and every now and again going for a nice walk along the sandy beach.

 We did plan to swim  frequently but the weather was not as warm as we expected so we only had a few swims. We also took the outrigger canoe out for a lovely paddle around the lagoon, slowly so we could watch the small fish playing around in the clear shallow water.

We lounged around the pool too, I did go in but the water was cooler than the ocean so mainly we swam there. I liked the beach cubanas nice to sit in a shady place when it got too hot on the beach under the Coconut palms.

Gosh that sounds wonderful Glennis, I'm actually beginning to look forward to summer again and it hasn't really been all that cold a winter :)

This sounds so wonderful! When I was still able to travel, I was not as adventurous as you---but reading about this place and the lovely people, I wish I had been!
Wonderful pictures! LOVE the idea that you can just grab a Banana off a tree on your way for a walk....!
Thanks for coming by!
