The house was perfect for the family, 5 persons all adults, having full kitchen, bbq and lounge areas allowing us to relax and do whatever. The house was situated right on the beach and approximately 1 kilometer from the resort. We had access to resort facilities, happy...

There are 24 units with bathroom and outdoor shower which was lovely. Units are arranged in attached pairs but we heard no noise from adjoining unit. We had a beach...

I never got one bad review from my clients so decided for our first trip to Rarotonga I would try it out for myself :) We had...

This resort really has the potential to be an outstanding place with glimpses of what it could be on our stay. Although it was lovely surrounds, for the price we did expect a bit more consistency in service and amenities and at times we were a little disappointed. Dinner in the restaurant was really pricey, but on all but our...

5 days of pure relaxation for our anniversary. Our room overlooked the pool and right out to the reef, it should have been a postcard! This resort is picture perfect and your time will be best spent with a book beside the pool. Deck chairs and umbrellas were easy to come by, just take your togs, jandals, sunscreen and you're...

Wow! What a truly fabulous place to have a relaxing holiday! Superb friendly helpful staff ( nothing too much trouble including arranging screens in the restaurant for the all important recent Rugby game) , stunning location - with both pool right on beachside and the handy beach. Really quiet place with a very boutique feel - not at all like...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your Polynesian Paradise at Manuia Beach Resort awaits you... Marvel at the magical sunsets over a sparkling blue lagoon, while lounging on your sheltered, white sandy beach fringed with swaying coconut palms. Wander through the tropical gardens on your way to the beach side infinity pool. Rest your elbows on the pool edge and soak in the view across the beach, through the lagoon onwards to the waves crashing on the barrier reef beyond. Sip a refreshing tropical cocktail delivered to you from the Beaches Restaurant and bar, or enjoy your Polynesian inspired meals in the restaurant while you trail your toes through the sandy floor. Manuia Beach Resort - your Cook Islands resort accommodation - is set right on the beach in private and peaceful surroundings on the sheltered sunset coast of Rarotonga. You will love the authentic Cook Islands style accommodation, with the coconut thatched suites complete with island style decor and modern amenities such as air conditioning. Walk through the sandy path down to the water and be stunned by the beauty of the poolside area. The infinity pool, Beaches Restaurant and Bar with its relaxed authentic Polynesian cuisine, loungers set invitingly facing the beautiful lagoon, and attentive local staff, will all set the stage for your dream Rarotongan get-away. ... more   less
