Rarotonga Beach Bungalows
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The bungalows are very well equiped (climatisation) well placed (20 m till sea) decorated in a Polynesian style. The shower in the garden is very good idea.
You can cook in it without any problem or decide to go to restaurants. Bungalows are wide a lot of place. It is a small structure (5 bungalows only) but very quiet and nice place. Family atmosphere and staff who pay attention to you.
A very good place to discover.

Room Tip: bungalows are 5 metter from beach and 20 metter from sea. quiet place

We stayed here for a week back in September last year, and I can't believe that I forgot to write a review!! We chose RBB specifically because it was small and private and right on the stunning beach. We stayed in an ocean bungalow and stepped right off the deck into the white sand. The bungalow was traditionally decorated and sparkling clean. The bed was really comfortable and we loved the semi outdoor bathroom. Linen and towels were fresh every day and there wasn't anything that we found the bungalow not to have. It was very comfortable when we were stuck inside for a day due to a mini cyclone! It was also very private, and we could sit on our deck without seeing anyone else.

The snorkeling from your front door is amazing. Breakfast is average - cereal, fruit and toast but we didn't expect anything more. Internet is so slow it's not worth using, but who needs technology when you're in Paradise?! The staff are very friendly, though beware that they are generally only there in the morning so if you need anything in the afternoon it's difficult to contact anyone. We had an issue on our last day, with our complimentary airport transfer not turning up. There were no staff, no-one was answering the managers phone, the local bus didn't turn up either. It was a stressful way to end our holiday, but we luckily managed to get a taxi and when we advised RBB about what happened when we got home the owner Tom arranged for us to get the taxi fare we paid refunded to us, which we appreciated.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would return in a flash!

Location! Location! Location!
The bungalows are in the perfect location with breath taking view of the lagoon. It is nicely design, decoration and immaculately cleaned daily. The owner Tom , Lucky and their staff are always nice and very helpful making you feel like family. We were there from July 15- 21 on the EKE beach front bungalow, picture perfect!
The first day was very nice weather and we enjoyed the water swimming surrounding with many fishes and long walking white sandy beach. The last few days of our trip were not good due to the storming, rainy, cold winter weather. We enjoyed all the exploration of Rarotonga island and good fresh food locally available. We will come back in the Summer warmer weather season in the near future... Kia Orana!

Room Tip: Beach front EKE bungalow in the middle front ocean view.

I have travelled a lot around the Pacific I can safely say this is THE best location and accommodation we have stayed in. The bungalow is only 30-40m from the stunning lagoon and the swimming and snorkelling is brilliant - my husband even saw a turtle!

The bungalow is spacious and I loved the décor as it made me feel I was in the 'true' Pacific - the large covered deck was perfect for light lunches and relaxing and reading in the shade. We had an amazing view over the lagoon so I could my eye on hubbie who took full advantage of the free kayaks and snorkelling gear.

We had a car and went to different restaurants each night on the recommendation of Tom and Lucky who were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast in the lounge was a great opportunity to meet the other guests.

It was nice to have the kitchen to mix cocktails for sunset drinks and nibbles - we even took the tables down to the water's edge and watched the magnificent sunsets every night.

We will be back next year and will take some friends !

Room Tip: I recommend the Ocean Beach Bungalows as they have amazing views over the lagoon and get a nice sea...

We have recently returned from our second stay at the fantastic Rarotonga Beach Bungalows & can confirm it was another spectacular holiday. The bungalows are immaculate, fresh linen, beach and bath towels are supplied daily & the staff super friendly who are able to give great advice regards local activities and restaurants. From the minute you arrive at the resort you are able to feel the sand beneath your feet & instant relaxation mode overcomes you. The snorkeling & kayaking are amazing. Not too many places on this earth like the Rarotonga Beach Bungalows, a one of a kind amazing place to stay & highly recommended. Hopefully we will return in the future & look forward to a catchup with Tom.

Room Tip: No need for a pool as the lagoon is literally outside your bungalow:)

This is the second time we have stayed at RBB and we would do it again tomorrow. The bungalows are amazing, comfortable and well furnished. The staff (Tom, Luckey, Mary) was fantastic and were willing to accommodate all our needs. The beach was amazing and the snorkeling right out our door was fabulous. Watched the sunrise and the sunset while sitting on the beach each day. I highly recommend Rarotonga Beach Bungalows.

Room Tip: Bungalows on the beach facing the water are picture perfect.
