Waking up an being able to see the ocean is absolutely amazing. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches on the island and going snorkelling is 100% worth doing! The staff are super helpful whether you want help at the resort or anything to do with the island. The only place I would stay at on the island!

The staff was wonderful and super friendly, and we were able to get early and late check in and out for our trip that really put us at ease. The rooms were nice and cosy and were always cleaned well. Gear for swimming was readily available and you could rent all sorts of stuff from flippers to boards.The breakfasts and... More

We had a fantastic week here. The new owners, Geraldine and Steve were very welcoming and the place had a wonderful friendly atmosphere. The entertainment was first class but not brash and the food at the barbecues was delicious and very good value. We particularly enjoyed the snorkelling and were very grateful that equipment was provided. The beach appeared to... More

This is one of those hidden gems you find. Despite not having actually stayed we spent time at the Shipwreck Hutt attached to the accommodation. The hosts with the most, new owners who have embraced the island traditions and have not changed one thing from previous. Food delightful, plenty, BBQ nights and great entertainment.we recommend this little slice of paradise... More

Just the perfect place for us. Great staff and service. Cabin was large and comfortable. Didn't need air conditioning. Fun family atmosphere. Good breakfasts. Three special evenings with local musicians and meals .Snorkeling right out front. If you are looking for an all inclusive 5 star 200 people or more partying place this is not it. If you want a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aro'a Beachside Inn which was well worth two long flights from the UK. The location right on the beach was perfect for us and we were made very welcome by Steve and Geraldine who although new to the hospitality business seem to be coping with their tight learning curve very well.

We have visited Raro a number of times in different resorts, we will be back to Aroa. Room was good, beach was great, friendly welcoming hosts who treated you as individuals. The resort is an excellent size where one may join in all activities or get on your own for a little peace and relaxation. Just shoot the rooster !

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. We managed to get a great package which included Aroa's amazing fruit breakfasts and lots of great activities to do. We were in a perfect location and just steps away from the beach. We also really enjoyed utilising their stand up paddle boards, snorkeling gear and library swap. The nighttime entertainment...

Aro'a Beachside Inn combines an incredible setting with a great atmosphere that far and away beats your typical island resort. Staff and so friendly and service is so personal, but everything you need is right there. No downsides at all to this wonderful accommodation.
