Just finishing a stay in the World at the Polynesian. On my way out this morning, I bumped into the head of housekeeping who was staying in the room near ours in Rarotonga. Turns out she was testing the new refurbished prototype on the 3rd floor. Got to peek in during construction but no photos. They are beautifully done. Nice gray accents and much brighter than the existing rooms.
She said refurb really kicks off in March starting with Tuvalu. So if you’re going in late spring or summer next year, you might want to request Tuvalu.
Here is the door to the the Rarotonga room that was just completed this week; may want to request 3824
