Shuttle costs

Has anybody stayed at the Sanctuary Rarotonga - on the beach? How much do they charge for return airport shuttle?

Kia Orana Jess,welcome to the Cook Islands forum.

Ask the resort if their shuttle service is compulsory. Some resorts have a contract in place for airport transfers, and require guests use that service.

If you are open to using other transfer services, get a quote from one of the taxi companies that are domiciled in the Arorangi area. I know that Price Taxis operate from Arorangi - pricetaxis.cookislands@gmail.com

Kia manuia.

Hi Jess

Unfortunately you don't tell us where you live.

But there are freephone numbers to the resort.

From NZ 0800 727 686

From Australia 1800 272 768

Hope this helps - assuming you live in NZ or Australia.

Hi again

Thought I'd see if the 0800 number from NZ worked.

It did and the cost is $30 per person each way, half price for children aged 2-11. It isn't compulsory to use their transfer service.

Hope this helps.

$30 per person sounds very expensive. A taxi only costs $20 per person.

We stayed at the Sanctuary 4 years ago and caught the round-the-island bus to the resort! No obligation to use their transfers then.
