Our policy is:

If you test positive for COVID-19 or Government imposed COVID-19 travel restrictions ("COVID-19 events") prevent you from being able to stay with us on the days which you booked you can change your booking dates, free of charge, to any date within 12 months of your booking (subject to availability) with the same accommodation rates and package as you initially booked with us.

As this only applies to COVID-19 events, we recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover other events that may prevent you from traveling to Rarotonga. 

If a positive test for COVID-19 is not required, travelers without COVID-19, but with COVID-19 symptoms which turn out not to be COVID-19 will be able to cancel as they will be unable to travel (and a doctors certificate would no doubt say they had COVID-19 symptoms which are present in most illnesses). Those symptoms include:


Most common symptoms:


•           fever

•           dry cough

•           tiredness



Less common symptoms:


•           aches and pains

•           sore throat

•           diarrhoea

•           conjunctivitis

•           headache

•           loss of taste or smell

•           a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes


Serious symptoms:


•           difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

•           chest pain or pressure
