Posted on August 7, 2019

Kia Orana from the Cook Islands,

Pacific Resort Hotel Group is committed to continually upgrading its facilities and improving its service delivery in
order to deliver on its promise of ‘absolute guest satisfaction’. To this end, there are a number of renovation and improvement projects scheduled for completion during the quieter time of our business year at Pacific Resort Rarotonga and Little Polynesian Resort.

We are sending you this letter to create awareness amongst your team for any bookings made at these properties during the specified timeframes in the attached and we wish to provide you with adequate notice to advise your agents and any new clients wishing to book at either resort during these periods of renovation to avoid disappointment and allow them to seek alternative dates.

We will advise all current bookings held at Pacific Resort Rarotonga or Little Polynesian Resort of these changes separately by advising the wholesaler/agent who placed the booking with us. Please see the attached file that outline the details. If a booking is received during the dates it will be accepted as having been advised at agent end and accepted by your client during this time about the potential disruptions to their stay.

Outlined below are the specific project and the dates refurbishment work will be undertaken.

We have also attached a map of both Pacific Resort Rarotonga and Little Polynesian Resort where we have highlighted the areas where the work will be completed. Click here to view.
