Last year we wrote that we were headed back to Manuia Beach for Christmas / New Years 2014 and here we are for the forth time. As usual everything is top notch with a wonderful and friendly staff, beautiful location on a South Sea Isle, an intimate location where everyone says Good Morning and Good Night to one another.

I very much enjoyed my time at Manuia Beach. The cocktails are lovely, the pool and beach area are immaculate and the restaurant food delicious (I particularly liked the fish burger). There is nothing better than sitting in the resort watching the sunset and the Island Night was a very special experience that I would thoroughly recommend. For me however... More

The location and setup couldn't be better. We had a garden room, which I was quite happy with given that the ocean view rooms are in the center of the action. It was very nice to be on the west side of the island, as sunsets were beautiful and we got evening light longer than many of the other resorts;... More

On our last night, my wife had a fall and needed to recuperate before our flight the next evening. Alex and the team were genuinely concerned for us and let us keep our... More

I had been to this property about 7 years ago, and must say its even better now. Rooms have been extensively renovated in the past two years, and are very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and very helpful. Kura from the restaurant was absolutely fantastic, and a real asset to Manuia Beach Resort, also the Island evening... More

Seven days of pure magic. The resort has the best staff, headed by Alex the Manager who makes himself known to holidaymakers and is very welcoming, as well as the polite and friendly bar and restaurant staff , reception and cleaners. I leave the best until last - Kura, the Food and Beverage Manager. What an outgoing, warm, friendly, awesome... More

From the minute we contacted the resort to enquire about accommodation till the minute we left the resort, we had fantastic service. We picked this place after reading previous reviews and we were not disappointed. Even though we arrived at midnight, staff still took the time to explain a few things to us and show us around our room. All... More
