About us

For people looking for peace and tranquility

The Atupa Orchid Units, Rarotonga, offer comfortable accommodation at affordable prices. These spick and span, self-contained bungalows are in a beautiful garden setting surrounded by trees, orchids and tropical plants. This quiet, secluded area lies just one kilometre west of Avarua, Rarotonga's main town. We also offer a pick-up service from the airport and can welcome you in English, German and Dutch.

The Atupa Orchid Units are handy to shops, restaurants and other facilities. The round-the-island bus service stops outside the gate. The owner, Ingrid Caffery and her son, Mario, speak and write English, German and Dutch as well as some French. Both also are experienced guides and conduct tours of Rarotonga by car and bus. Telephone, fax and email services are available.

TOUR 1 lasts three and a half hours and TOUR 4 is four hours. On these tours you will travel the ancient back road -- the Ara Metua -- and will be introduced to the fauna and flora of the island. Tours stop at the Sailing Club, Muri Beach and at Ngatangiia harbor, the historical starting point for the Polynesian migrations to New Zealand.

The tours carry on to Avarua, stopping at the Arai-Te-Tonga, the court and meeting place of ancient peoples, old churches and Pa Ariki's Marae.

We are also the second closest Motel to the airport, although close to the airport we are still situated in a very still and quiet area.

You'll love the quiet seclusion and tropical garden environment. Each bungalow has its own verandah -- you can enjoy the shade and the friendly atmosphere.

These very clean, self-contained units are serviced regularly and have hot and cold showers.

Each unit has a fully-equipped kitchen and refrigerator. There is an outside barbecue area.

Interiors are cool and colorful. Radios and hairdryers are standard and there is a free paperback library.

We look forward welcoming you to our bungalows.
