The beachfront rooms at Little Polynesian are to die for. The view is like a postcard. The outdoor day bed is perfect for lazing about for an afternoon rest. You have your own pool / deck chairs and they are soooo comfortable you will want to but them for your own home. You can get room service for anything you... More

Recently spent 4 days at Little Polynesian. This was our first trip to Cook Islands and loved it - especially Little Polynesian. It's a small boutique resort on a beautiful beach, which is exactly what we wanted. Loved having use of the kayaks, paddle board and snorkeling equipment. All the staff were attentive and friendly. Would definitely try to go... More

We stayed at the Little Poly for 6 nights for our honeymoon and we could not have picked a better place on the island! The resort is situated on the best bit of beach on Rarotonga. The views were truly breathtaking, not only from our room but also the restaurant. The food was unbelievable, and the villas were not only... More

This collection of little villas is located on probably the best sandy beach with a long easy swim in the 5" deep lagoon - amazing multi-coloured fish. The beach front villas are the ones to go for and you have a strip of beautiful golden sand and quite possibly nobody to see or interrupt the view for several hours. In... More

We stayed at the Little Poly for 6 nights during our 2 week stay on Rarotonga and it was absolute paradise. We originally booked a garden room, but were upgraded to a beach villa when we checked in. Wow. What an amazing room! Its simplistic decor was the perfect complement to our laid-back beach vacation and that bathroom! I wish... More
