“For the last 1000 years, Rarotonga has managed to retain a unique South Pacific culture. But about ten years ago, the Sheraton chain broke ground on the island to build a huge destination resort. When we visited the island in 1994, construction workers were just beginning to build the hotel. We were sure the hotel would ruin this island. … Fortunately, the Sheraton project went bust when it was about 80% finished. . . The ruins of the resort are now covered in rapacious island vegetation creeping in from the jungle. Horses and cattle contentedly graze in the shadows of the unoccupied concrete structures.”
