We enjoyed our Silver Wedding Anniversary at the little Poly this month very much. The small boutique nature of the hotel and the super friendly and efficient staff made this a cosy and excellent stop on our journey round some of the islands. We were treated like friends and felt very pampered every day. Every detail was thought of. The...

We were in Rarotonga for 6 nights at the Little Polynesia, unfortunately the wind meant swimming and water-sports weren't much fun on this side of the island. It died down on our very last day. The beach was lovely and the facilities very nice. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful

From the staff to the ocean views I could not say anything negative about our stay. The beach from villa was literally on the beach. We could lie in bed and watch the ocean. The layout of our villa was spacious and homely. We were well cared for by staff and known by name from day one. It was a...

Resort is situated between the main road (behind a tall rock wall) and beach as are most other venues. Adults only (over 15's allowed) boutique size, 14 villas, choice of daily...

Just returned from 11 nights in ocean front unit 5 at this gorgeous property. The layout and design of the units is perfect. Views from very comfortable king-sized bed directly out to stunning beach and distant reef. Large private deck with adequate outdoor furnishings. Loved the spacious bathroom with twin basins, sep toilet and large shower - plus a private...

We recently spent a week at the Little Poly, everything was perfect from the moment we arrived late at night, to be met with a lovely warm welcome, right through to the day we left. All the staff, from the gardener, through the domestic staff, the waiting on staff and the hotel management went out of their way to ensure...

We didn't know much about the Cook Islands so had never really considered Rarotonga as a holiday destination - but it wasn't until a random deal popped up on the Luxury Escapes app for The Little Polynesian (or The Little Poly - as it's known to the locals) that we even considered it. For the past 10 years we've always...

My wife surprised me with this vacation, and we both ended up surprised (we are in our early 50's)! We have never had such a wonderful experience. We were looking for a place that was warm, beautiful beaches, and quiet. We got that and more. I feel what made this vacation so blessed was not only the resort, but the...

“the bungalows on the beach are a dream, they open out onto a private white sandy beach, with a beautiful lagoon where it is safe to swim.”

“I'd recommend choosing villas 7, 8, 9 or 10 - they're furthest from the main reception area and main road.”
