We returned today from a wonderful holiday at the beautiful and peaceful holiday hotel Manuia Beach Resort on the Cook Islands. This was without doubt the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The hotel is situated looking over the ocean with a private beach, excellent restaurant and swimming pool all situated just a few steps from our room. Alex... More

We have just return from a very relaxing stay at Manuia Beach Resort. We chose to stay there as we honeymooned there 25 years ago. We love it then and we loved it this time also. The staff are friendly and accomodating; the rooms are spacious, clean and nicely furnished. The resort itself has a lovely intimacy about it and... More

So Trip Advisor asked where I went in Raratonga ... just now entering my review. It was AMAZING!!! I am happy to see that the reviews are still just as good. The hotel staff helped us arrange everything from the officiant, photographer, music, and much more. They handled EVERY detail for us. We are planing on coming back for our... More

Wow! This place was spectacular! The service, the people, the food, the cocktails!!! Highly highly recommended. Even better is this is an adult only resort - met some fantastic people who will be our friends for life now. Alex (the manager) could have not done anymore to make our stay perfect, even in the middle of a cyclone!! Absolutely love... More

My traveling companion and I had a couple of days at Maniua quite by chance after we needed to stay on in Rarotonga for a few extra days. The staff at Manuia looked after us so well, our room was fantastic and the whole environment was just so lovely and relaxing. We can't wait to come back and next time... More

We recently spent 8 days here and loved every minute of it. From our first greeting by Alex, Leiza and the team we were so warmly welcomed and catered for during our stay. It proved to be a very relaxing but interesting place to stay. We particularly loved the external shower, activities and entertainment provided and of course the food.... More

This resort didn't disappoint us in anyway. We were in room 1 overlooking the beach, (lucky us), what a view we had, by day the lovely beach and in the evening the beautiful sunsets. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and very helpful. Being a small resort and child free turned this holiday into one of the most relaxing holidays... More

This was our first trip to Rarotonga, and choosing to stay at Manuia Beach Resort was the best decision we made. Lovely resort alround - we stayed in Room 6 so had beach/pool views from our room which was beautiful. The staff in the restaurant and bar were ever so friendly and approachable. The pool was devine.
