Our home away from home, the property manager Annabelle and the caretaker David is awesome. The beach is the best on the island with barely any coral, nice depth, great snorkeling and hardly any people! We can never stay anywhere else and will recommend it every time. I can't wait to get back there asap!

A beautiful spot!!! Friendly staff, awesome beach, great snoorkeling. Nice and quiet, unlike the resorts but close enough to many fabulous restaurants and attractions, just a short scooter ride away. Clean and tidy, great kitchen facilities. Wish I could have stayed forever.

David is famous for being a great host, Annabelle is a delight and always welcomes you warmly. The room attendant made my day every time she smiled. Thank you for a wonderful stay. This is where we will stay should we return to Rarotonga. My sister was staying at a resort but spent most of her time at Bella Beach... More

We felt that for the price ($250 per night), Bella's Bungalows was somewhat rundown and poor value for money. There are literally hundreds of well appointed places to stay on the same beach front which are better appointed, better value while also being closer to restaurants, cafés and amenities. You will need transport during your stay as it's a bit... More

What can be said about the Bella Beach Bungalows? Well suffice it to say it's about as flawless, seamless experience you can have in the middle of nowhere. Its not big and fancy and you will want to have a car (it's a far walk to just about anything) but it is homey, quiet, and well cared for. Annabelle runs... More

We stayed at Bella Beach bungalow #4 for the first two weeks in April. I've read the other positive reviews and have to say, yes, Yes, YES!!! Comfortable, clean, cared for bungalows. My husband and I did not want to leave. Our bungalow was right on the lagoon, a hammock waited for us, kayaks were available if we could ever... More

We stayed at Bella Lodge for a week in April (family of 4 with 2 teenagers), and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The lodge is set back behind Bella house, but only less than a minutes walk (literally!) to the beach. The beach really is one of the best on the Island, with a sandy beach and great snorkelling. Remember to... More

We stayed here as part of a trip out to New Zealand, and it was a magical experience. The accommodation looks like simple beach huts, each with a front deck to sit out on and directly on the fabulous beach. When I booked it on the Internet at random, we could only hope it would all be ok. Annabelle included... More

We spent 16 days in paradise and this is in our opinion the best beach in Rarotonga and the nicest place to stay. We stayed in bungalow 4 and were delighted with everything about it, spotlessly clean, great kitchen and bathroom. We were welcomed with a fresh fruit bowl and juice in the fridge and the warmest welcome from David... More

We had three wonderful weeks at Bella Beach Bungalows. Annabelle was a great host she looked after our every need and even came to see us, to say goodbye on our last day. We couldn't have found a nicer place to stay on the Island. We felt very safe and secure in our bungalow as we knew David the groundsman/security... More
