Is the water safe to drink at your Rarotonga Accommodation?

Water quality and safety in Rarotonga is something to look out for. There are many different types (and pricing) of Rarotonga accommodation and you need to take care and check whether the water is filtered on the property. Check also that the water is UV filtered – not just an inexpensive tap filter, which may not give you good drinking water. You may want to be aware of this when looking for accommodation as you could end up buying water every day.

At Makayla Palms Rarotonga accommodation all the villas have UV filtered water and you will find lovely, cold filtered water in your fridge on arrival. All water going into the villas is filtered so that if you are showering, doing your washing or washing the dishes you can rest assured that you have a good filtered supply of water.
