I recently stayed at the Little Polynesian resort for 9 days with my mother. We had planned a no children - no husband trip! The resort was gorgeous, when i first arrived it took my breath away. We had booked a garden room for the cooking facilities but ended up falling in love with the ocean ares so paid for... More

We have just returned from a combined holiday - 3 nights on Rarotonga at Little Polynesian, and 4 night on Aitutaki at Aitutaki Escape. You just can't go wrong with this mix if visiting the Cook Islands. The absolute best accommodation on Aitutaki (refer review there), and the best in Rarotonga at Little Polynesian - and both have the nicest... More

We have just come back from the most beautiful island accommodation we have ever stayed in. Time actually stood still. We stayed for 7 nights in the Pia Tiare (Garden unit), just stunning especially the outdoor shower and spa. We decided to stay in one night when it was raining and having our own kitchen we were able to cook... More

We are just back from our amazing stay at Little Polynesian – and loved every moment! It is simply gorgeous, immaculately kept, with amazing staff and delicious food. We spent 7 nights in an overbeach bure (number 2) which is absolute beachfront. We loved waking each morning to the sound of the waves and yet another gorgeous sunrise. The rooms... More

We recently had our wedding at The Little Polynesian Resort and the entire experience was a pleasure from beginning to end. Firstly, the front manager Vicki did a wonderful job with the planning. Reducing the stress and headache of having a destination wedding by liasing closely with me for a couple months in advance. Then when we showed up and... More

Warm, friendly and helpful staff look after your every need in this pristine location, making Little Poly the best hotel for a romantic getaway. The no kids policy means there is always a pool side sun chair available, and ensures a peaceful, relaxing rest or swim. The beach is beautiful and great for swimming or snorkeling. We miss it already,... More

I feel bad for leaving it this long to leave a review...Little Polynesian was probably the highlight of our honeymoon back in September, even if the weather in Rarotonga was not that great this week. We were lucky to be upgraded on arrival to one of the Beach Bungalows and that was just the incredible: the beach is just in... More

This boutique hotel is perfect for honeymooners or a couple that want peace and quiet in an idyllic setting. With around 15 rooms there is never more than about four people around the pool. The staff at the Little Poly are what make it special though, genuinely friendly, people who can't do enough for you. I felt like giving them... More
