Loved our Room #103 on the beach. We were about 30 feet from the beach with a great view. Lots to do in the Muri Lagoon: glass bottom boats, kayaking, kite boarding, sailboarding, sailing and snorkeling.The resort has very lush grounds that are well maintained. Breakfast is on the beach if sunny or indoors in a pavilllion setting with water surrounding it. Our room was nice with a granite shower, beautiful bed spread and decor. You have a beautiful sunrise over the motus. It was fun to walk the beach and beachcomb. Lots of shells with lots of hermit crabs in them. We had dinner there on night and it was good with a couple of guys playing island music. We rented a Suzuki jeep through the resort and explored the island. We went to the Edgewater for sunsets. Fruits of Rarotonga had OK snorkeling. We did Pa's trek across the island. Would highly recommend it but you should be in some kind of shape because it is steep alot of the way.

  • Liked — location, view, room decor, food, grounds,sunrise
  • Disliked — no sunset
  • Tips/Secrets — rent a car or scooter and see the island - it is beautiful

Friendly people, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful rooms. The resort is great and the staff are very helpful. The room was wonderful - everything you need, very comfortable and clean. The large beds are good - particularly in the heat. The room was airconditioned (if you want to use it) and also had fans and good insect doors. We stayed in a garden room and had a wonderful garden outlook but still only a few metres from the beach. The beach is unsurpassable and the meals in the restaurant were great. We ate mostly right on the beach and had no problems with insects. A delicious island breakfast was included each morning and certainly wasn't lacking for choice. We stayed seven nights and loved it.
