You only get one chance to make a first impression and ours was of Esa beaming at us as we came through Rarotonga immigration.

We were welcomed by the owners Esa & Nancy who went above the call and duty of hosts. They were full of information and advise about what to do and see...

I recently returned from a 3 week stay at Ambala Garden Lodge. The hosts, friendly Canadians, arranged airport pick-up and graciously welcomed me even though it was well after midnight when I arrived. My accommodation on the main floor of the Lodge was spacious and clean with a really comfy bed and pillows. I could see the ocean and palms...
