This was our 5th stay at Aro'a and it never disappoints. It just gets better all the time. The accomodations are perfect for us. We like that we can get up and have that first cup of french press coffe and sit on our patio and stare at the beautilful lagoon. It's just heaven. Does anyone ever mention how great... More

My husband and I stayed for 8 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff were great and we couldn't have wished for a better location to stay. I've told family who were thinking about travelling to go to Raro and stay at Aro'a. I wish I could go back again! The snorkelling was great straight off the beach.... More

I just spent a week at ABI & loved every minute of it. The rooms were not fancy; just clean, cozy, & perfect beach atmosphere! We were just yards from the beach & listened to the beautiful sound of the ocean all day & night! We so enjoyed our patios & the small kitchen to create our snacks for the... More

We just spent 7 wonderful nights at the Aro'a Beachside Inn. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to stay, it exceeded our expecations.

We had a wonderful holiday at Aro 'a Beachside Inn 2 nd week of February. It was all that we hoped it would be and more. Our cabin right on the beach was perfect, and we could swim and snorkel at all stages of the tide. Why would you want a swimming pool when the lagoon is so inviting and... More

A holiday that far exceeded expectations. The owners, Steve and Geraldine, and the staff ( Stepanie, Alone, Nane and Te Mana ) were fantastic and helped to make the holiday. The units and bar really are beachside and the lagoon is great for snorkelling. If you want loud, late nightlife this may not be for you , but if you... More

My daughter and I were literally caught with a flat wheel whilst in Rarotonga in February. The lovely lady in the office called the hire company to come and exchange the bike. Then she invited us to sit at the bar whilst awaiting help. We ended up staying 4 wonderful nights. Steve and Geraldine have added their friendly and caring... More

If you don't want to stay in a resort but want a friendly home away from home, this is the place for you. Steve and Geraldine, Stephanie, Alone and the other girls are generous with their time.
