This property is a reflection of Rarotonga itself - quiet, pristine, relaxing. Well manicured gardens, a lovely deep pool, great restaurant, the room was kept fresh and clean. We booked a beachfront room, with views out over the ocean. To a certain extent the rooms are kept quite simple - no TV, no phone, no free internet, the lack of... More

We will be return! We had an amazing and relaxing time at Manuia Beach. The facilities are just awesome, from the rooms through to the infinity pool, loungers, beach, snorkeling - the lot.

I had a wonderfully relaxing time during my stay at the Manuia Beach Resort. It is a resort for over 18s. You are given a 120MB of free wifi you can use, though it is not always easy to access the Internet. It is located on the sheltered side of the island and it has its own restaurant and bar... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your Polynesian Paradise at Manuia Beach Resort awaits you... Marvel at the magical sunsets over a sparkling blue lagoon, while lounging on your sheltered, white sandy beach fringed with swaying coconut palms. Wander through the tropical gardens on your way to the beach side infinity pool. Rest your elbows on the pool edge and soak in the view across the beach, through the lagoon onwards to the waves crashing on the barrier reef beyond. Sip a refreshing tropical cocktail delivered to you from the Beaches Restaurant and bar, or enjoy your Polynesian inspired meals in the restaurant while you trail your toes through the sandy floor. Manuia Beach Resort - your Cook Islands resort accommodation - is set right on the beach in private and peaceful surroundings on the sheltered sunset coast of Rarotonga. You will love the authentic Cook Islands style accommodation, with the coconut thatched suites complete with island style decor and modern amenities such as air conditioning. Walk through the sandy path down to the water and be stunned by the beauty of the poolside area. The infinity pool, Beaches Restaurant and Bar with its relaxed authentic Polynesian cuisine, loungers set invitingly facing the beautiful lagoon, and attentive local staff, will all set the stage for your dream Rarotongan get-away. ... more   less
