Weddings & Events

Antipodes is owned and run by a female executive chef, who not only delights in creating the perfect day for aspiring newly-weds but also have more than 30 years’ international experience in the management of Banqueting, Weddings and Events. After having lived and worked on Rarotonga for some 6 years, she decided to purchase the perfect property on the Island to accommodate a specialist Weddings and Events Business.


Larger events [30+] are catered for with dramatic and beautifully decorated buffets, with smaller events being catered for with pre-selected menus. A set menu may be requested for a larger event; however, for this, the Antipodes Restaurant would need to be closed down for the day, plus the entire ground floor is booked out as an ‘exclusive property usage’. This would naturally attract an additional ‘exclusive property usage’ fee.

Large Wedding Ceremonies can be held on-site on the lawn area surrounded by exotic tropical trees, and medium-sized ceremonies can be held on the ocean facing upper veranda or the two wooden deck areas. Small ceremonies [max 10 persons] can even be held on the Antipodes Rooftop Deck, which affords 360-degree wrap around views of the ocean, lagoon and mountain. In the event of inclement weather or rain conditions, weddings of up to 80 guests can be accommodated inside the villa and leading out to the enormous covered front veranda with its fabulous views – without having to hire a
marquee. Larger events [80+] would require a marquee be hired in the event of rain.

Arrangements can also be made for your Wedding Ceremony to be held on one of Rarotonga’s beautiful beachfronts, local style, with guests being transported back to Antipodes for the Wedding Reception. We invite you to let the enthusiastic Team at Antipodes make all the necessary arrangements for your dream wedding, as well as be there for you on your special day.

Simply immerse yourself in the romantic old-world ambience of Antipodes, soak in the views and leave the details to us…
