Kevin & I stayed at Manuia Beach Resort in late October early November this year. We cannot speak highly enough of the resort, the people and how everyone made us feel part of their 'family'. We were in a beach front cabin with amazing views, the cabin itself was great, especially the private outside shower! The staff are wonderful, the... More

We stayed at Manuia Beach Resort for our recent holiday to Raro, it was fantastic. Alex and the other staff made our stay one to remember, especially when we got engaged on the sand with a specially designed private dinner for two on the beach! The staff were all so friendly and the facilities were great! Loved, loved, loved the... More

We stayed at Manuia Beach Resort in October with a small travel group. On our arrival from the airport, which is not far away, we received a very warm welcome and were shown to our cabins. Ours was number 18, a garden cabin, which was just fine. Outside on the porch were two chairs, a table and a large bowl... More

Twenty or so years ago we stayed here, it was new, and probably the finest resort on the island. Recently, we returned to the island for a wedding, but stayed elsewhere. We had occasion to visit the Manuia, firstly for the wedding, and then many occasions over the next few days. Over time since our last visit, the rooms have... More

We had the best time at Manuia. The staff were friendly, smiley, more than happy to have a chat and help out with anything they could...and then there is the view! We stayed beach front and got married amongst the coconut palms at Manuia and just could not have asked for a better location or people to help us out,... More

Thanks to all the great reviews on Trip Advisor my husband and I selected this resort for a 2 day lay over - it exceeded expectations and we will definitely return. Everything about this place was perfect - from the welcoming management and staff, to the lovely villa rooms, to showering outdoors under a the full moon, to the great... More

We spent 8 nights here on our honeymoon. It really was excellent. Lovely spot, beautiful sunsets, great staff, nice rooms and great snorkeling. We actually found the snorkeling at the resort to be better than the so called "best spots" on the island. No children at the resort so perfect for couples. I would highly recommend paying the extra for... More

We were up graded to a beach front unit when we arrived and it was a lovely surprise. The unit was beautifully presented with real attention to detail: flowers on the benches, Balinese light shades, tivaevae cushions and pillow cases and other tasteful touches. The outside shower was wonderful. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and planted in a riot of... More

Manuia Beach was the perfect spot for a beach getaway on Rarotonga. A little hidden gem, the staff were lovely, welcoming, and accommodating of all of our requests; and the rooms and facilities are phenomonal. Highly recommend spending a little extra to stay here, loved every minute of our week at Manuia.

Manuia beach hotel is a small resort, recently renovated. It has a lovely private beach with comfortable loungers and large hammocks. There are full grown palms for shadow, and a great infinity pool. We had booked a premium garden room but were upgraded to one of the beach rooms. How lucky can you get! From our terrace we had an... More
