This is a small boutique and kid free "resort" with about 25 cottage style rooms. Well maintained and groomed. We had two rooms one back from the beach front we still had sea views. A pleasant restaurant / bar on the beach, adjacent to the pool. A good standard of lunch and evening meals along with a reasonable drinks range....

2 years ago I proposed here to my beautiful wife. So it was only appropriate that for our 1 year anniversary I plan another dinner at this lovely resort (due to another couple's wedding). Again my wife did not know of anything because the staff and Sue were able to keep everything secret and to our specific order. Everything from...

I booked with ease a 4 bedroom house attached to Manuka Beach Resort. The house was perfect for the family, 5 persons all adults, having full kitchen, bbq and lounge areas allowing us to relax and do whatever. The house was situated right on the beach and approximately 1 kilometer from the resort. We had access to resort facilities, happy...

Excellent small resort with very friendly staff, lovely location, excellent rooms and a great restaurant and pool. My wife and I had a week there and were sorry to leave. There are 24 units with bathroom and outdoor shower which was lovely. Units are arranged in attached pairs but we heard no noise from adjoining unit. We had a beach...

My husband and I recently stayed at the lovely Manuia Resort. Previously I was a travel agent and recommended this property to my clients travelling to Rarotonga especially honeymooners as its adults only! I never got one bad review from my clients so decided for our first trip to Rarotonga I would try it out for myself :) We had...

This resort really has the potential to be an outstanding place with glimpses of what it could be on our stay. Although it was lovely surrounds, for the price we did expect a bit more consistency in service and amenities and at times we were a little disappointed. Dinner in the restaurant was really pricey, but on all but our...

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
