Cook Islands - an unspoiled paradise

Posted by Tania Verscharen on Nov 20, 2004 Add a Comment 0

image1.jsp.jpgIn November 2003, I was fortunate enough to be asked to attend a Venture Holidays familiarization tour to The Cook Islands where it was my chance to discover the beauty of Rarotonga and what it has to offer. Nine glorious days in The Cook Islands, 7 days in Rarotonga and 2 days on the magical Island of Aitutaki. Flying Ex Melbourne, we flew Air New Zealand via Auckland with a two hour transit in Auckland. The Flying time in total is 7 hours 30 minutes. I really enjoyed the service with Air New Zealand, their planes were immaculate and the in-flight service and choice of films were great. Be prepared to eat lunch before you board the Melbourne to Auckland flight as only a snack is served and I was starving. At 00:50 we arrived into Rarotonga and you could feel the warmth as soon as we stepped off the aircraft....

Breathtaking Cook Islands

Posted by Maria Viloria on Mar 15, 2005 Add a Comment 0

image0.jsp.jpgIn March 2005 Reho Travel offered me the chance to visit the beautiful Cook islands to go on a familiarization tour hosted and organized by Tal Pacific Holidays. I was fortunate enough to visit and stay on the main island Rarotonga for 6 magnificent days and 1 glorious night on the Island of Aitutaki. The Air New Zealand flight Ex Sydney took 2 hours to New Zealand. We had a 30 minute stop over in Christchurch and then another 5 hour flight to the Cook Islands. Therefore a total of 7 hours and 30 minutes until we arrived to the the main island Rarotonga. It was 22:00 when we landed. As we arrived we were greeted with frangipani leis by the Tourism Representative Papatua Papatua and then transferred by RaroTours, meeting our friendly driver for the week 'John' where he drove us to our Accommodation for check-in at the...

Noumea - Hisako Seo

Posted by Hisako Seo on Apr 19, 2007 Add a Comment 0

noumea.jpgIn April, I went on my second famil since starting at Reho Travel. The famil was organised by New Caledonia Tourism. My famil started early in the morning we had to be at the airport at around 0600 - flight turned out to be a Qantas aircraft. Due to the early hours in the morning I don't remember much of the flight journey to New Caledonia. Once we arrived at Noumea, we were stuck at the airport for ages as there was only one line for Foreigners, and there were about 80 other Australian travel consultants. Out of the airport, we boarded our bus according to where we were staying for the night. My group ended up staying at the Le Surf Hotel. We checked in and quickly got changed and met in the restaurant for some yummy seafood buffet. After lunch we headed to the cultural centre. The cultural centre Tjibaou is definitely...

Driving above the clouds - Hayley Thomas

Posted by Hayley Thomas on Jun 22, 2009 Add a Comment 0

Hayley_nz.jpgI was lucky enough to have entry into the Emirates lounge in Sydney airport. It was early morning so a full breakfast was being served. Our aircraft arrived early morning from Dubai via Bangkok, which then continues onto Christchurch. We flew in on Emirates EK 418 in economy class. I found the aircraft really spacious, pleasant staff and meal was decent and with the amazing entertainment they have to offer the 3-hour flight felt like an hour. On arrival into Christchurch we were interviewed by the local news crew as they were celebrating the 1 millionth Aussie to visit the city! We then picked up an Avis rental car a 4WD as we have some Km's ahead of us. A 6 hour drive to Queenstown and back and forth to the ski mountains each day! Our flight arrived at 3pm and after stopping a couple of times...

Flying Emirates to Auckland - Erin Berry

Posted by Erin Berry on Aug 19, 2010 Add a Comment 0

erin_emirates.jpgWe started bright and early on Friday morning, checking in at 6am for our flight to Auckland aboard the A380. The lady at the Emirates check in was very friendly and efficient which is good to see, especially at 6am. We visited the Emirates Business and First Class lounge. The lounge was very stylish and comfortable. The food was great with an array of hot and cold dishes. We pre boarded the flight and got to see the Emirates first class cabin, which was amazing! Emirates A380 offer a bathroom with a shower which would be a welcome luxury during a long flight. The flight over in Economy class was very comfortable. I enjoyed the ICE entertainment system, it offered a large variety of movies and TV shows. The sound was great and the system was easy to use. They served a tasty breakfast and the eggs...

lisa_wellington.jpgI was lucky to be invited to WOW (world of wearable Arts) Award show by Air New Zealand. This was a quick trip to Wellington but a great one. I meet the rest of the group at Melbourne airport where we met Sue Burgess from Air New Zealand who would be joining us on this trip. We then got to go to the Air Zealand Lounge where we go to relax to our flight took off. I was very impressed with the Air New Zealand lounge the food was great and had a very relaxed feel. The flight was three and half hours long just enough time to watch a movie and have a nap before we landed in Wellington, very smooth flight. We arrived at our hotel which was the Bolton Hotel, this was a late arrival so we went straight to bed to get ready for our early start. I loved this hotel, 5 star and close to everything. Modern...

Island Escape North Island Famil to Fiji

Posted by Jessica Chorley on May 31, 2011 Add a Comment 0

Jess_fiji.jpgAir Pacific: For our international flights we flew with Air Pacific. Super friendly staff is the best benefit of flying with Air Pacific. The food, airplane, times all ran smoothly. Pacific Sun: For our domestic flight within Fiji, we flew with Pacific Sun. Our flight from Nadi to Suva was on time, but the connecting flight to Savusavu was delayed by 2.5 hours...a little disappointing but all part of the experience. The planes themselves were tired looking, and the experience of flying is a 10 seater plane with the pilot and cabin right there (no door) was exhilarating! Stunning scenery to been seen from the sky. Novotel Nadi: I was extremely impressed with the service, d?r and layout of Novotel. ...

Norfolk Island

Posted by Erin Berry on Sep 17, 2011 Add a Comment 0

Norfolk Island is a beautiful Island just a short flight from Australia or New Zealand. From its rugged coastline to its green rolling hills Norfolk truly is a remarkable place. Norfolk Air operates flights out of Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Newcastle. Flights aren't daily so you have to plan your length of stay around the flight schedule. We enjoyed our flights with Norfolk Air the staff were extremely friendly, the seats were comfortable and the food was surprisingly good for aeroplane food! An added bonus with travelling to Norfolk is that it is classed as an International flight therefore you depart from the international terminal which means duty free shopping! We arrived into Norfolk at night and were met by a member of staff from the Broad Leaf Villas where we were staying for the first 2 nights; most accommodation offers complimentary airport transfers by mini bus. Broad Leaf Villas is in a great location about 5-10 minute walk from the main...

Mrs Brown does The South Seas - Marilyn Brown

Posted by Marilyn Brown on Dec 19, 2011 Add a Comment 0

Matamanoa_Island_Resort.jpgBula..... After a delayed take off from Sydney due to mechanical problems, notably very well handled by the staff on Air Pacific, with plenty of 'peanuts' and drinks as well a movies while we waited, we arrived into Nadi well after 9pm. Finally transferred through to our first night of accommodation at the Shangrila Fijian with a very late supper around midnight amongst some very 'happy' wedding parties. Lovely property... an old favourite and an excellent choice for families and couples alike. Lovely wedding chapel and many options for weddings, on the beach, garden or the chapel. Both lagoon view and ocean view rooms are the same configurations just location determining costs etc. and lagoon view rooms are equally as good. Notabley though the lagoon...

Vanuatu - a close encounter with a Volcano

Posted by Susanna DaSilva on Dec 31, 2011 Add a Comment 0

TannaVolcano.jpgVanuatu - a close encounter with a Volcano When you think of Vanuatu -what springs to mind? I suspect the usual sun, surf and sea plus maybe you are aware that the diving/snorkelling there is amazing! But I am pretty sure that you don't realise that it is possible to visit an active volcano, climb all the way to the rim and watch it breathe like a dragon ready to pounce on you. Air Vanuatu operates direct flights both from Brisbane (2.5hrs) and Sydney (3.5hrs) to Port Vila, so it's easy to get there and when I arrived did not even need to change my watch. So no problems with jetlag at all, which makes a nice change. My favourite destinations tend to be at least 10 hours and 3 time zones away and it usually takes me ages to get "acclimatised" I caught the late flight to Port Vila on...

Tanna is a remote island in the Southern part of Vanuatu, only a short 45 minute flight from its capital Port Vila. This small island will enthrall you with its fascinating culture and capture you with its amazing rainforests and stunning beach scenery. We stayed at the White Grass Ocean Resort, which is considered to be one of the most luxurious resorts on the island.

After many years of using New Zealand as a transit point, when offered the chance to head to “The land of the long white cloud” to experience 2 of over 28 luxury lodges I was more than happy to oblige. Waiting in Sydney airport I was ready to embark on all the scenery from “The Hobbit” rolling greenery, remarkable scenery, blue skies combined with the All Blacks, Maori culture and the endless offerings that New Zealand had to offer me. Stepping on board the Air New Zealand’s A320 I was welcomed with “Kia Ora” from the friendly crew and a smiles this set the standard to a great flight. Travelling on the Works Deluxe which gave me the baggage allowance (needed this for the warm jacket); “On demand” inflight entertainment and a...
