Fantastic place with equally fantastic owner and staff. They truly go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Lovely room right on beach and I could lay on my bed and watch the waves. Restaurant on the beach too, just steps from my room or a beach walk to another fine place. Outdoor shower, incredibly comfortable bed with... More

This is a small beach resort with 24 lodges, ideal for couples, not really that suitable for young children. It's in a great spot on the west of Rarotonga so you get to view the sunsets that can be spectacular. It really is right on the beach so you can swim in the sea or in the hotel swimming pool....

My husband and I just got back from Manuia Beach in Rarotonga. We had a wonderful time. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every minute there. We enjoyed the saltwater pool, the beach, their breakfast, their service, all of it. We truly felt like we were family. They were very helpful with bookings for excursions and very knowledgeable about... More

My husband and I spent 6 days ar this gorgious location. The manager, Sue, is very customer focused, warm and helpful with tipps on the island. Her staff is absolutely great, Laiza, Carolina, et all(restaurant), Tata(room service), the chefs. After a 3 months tour thru Australia and NZ we were absolutely happy to relax at this resort. Although the sea... More

Lovely small resort, very friendly staff and management. We were only there in between outings and seeing family so cannot give a full overview on everything. The room was very clean and made up everyday to the same standard. I really did enjoy the outdoor shower. There were no televisions in the rooms but that didn't bother us as we... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Manuia Beach Resort. I had forgotten to call ahead to let them know when our flight was coming in, but somehow they were there waiting for us when we arrived at the airport anyway. My husbands luggage had missed one of our connections and the sweet gals in the office made calls for us... More

What a lovely spot. We had 3 days here then moved to Muri. But we went back a couple of times add they have a Great pool and restaurant on the beach and the accommodation is peaceful and quiet. We will definately be back to stay and rest up again.

The hotel itself is nice. The rooms are simple but clean. The food in the restaurant was nice. The beach is not for swimming. It's very shallow and full of rocks and corals. But at the end it's all about the people. The staff was definitely not as nice as described in the reviews. It seemed like we were bothering... More

One of the best places that I've ever stayed in the South Pacific. Wonderful location, friendly staff and great accommodation. Felt totally relaxed at the end of my stay. Booked premium garden room but was upgraded to beach view room for first night and complementary bottle of bubbly. Can't wait to go back.
