My husband and I had our honeymoon at Magic Reef for 6 nights, and it was everything anyone could dream of for a honeymoon. Our absolute beachfront bungalow was perfect in every way. The view of the beach and lagoon was stunning. The outdoor bath and shower was lovely. And the pool, beachfront and bbq were immaculately maintained. Simon and...

Here you can enjoy the perfect sunset from the terrace of your bungalow. Comfortable lounge chairs on the beach and fine sandy beach and the lagoon. In the Polynesian furnished bungalow you can see the star sky directly from the private bath. With many nice restaurants within walking distance, you can not get a better and relaxing holiday. I can...

We had a fantastic stay at the Magic Reef bungalows and just can’t say enough about the customer service provided by owners Angela and Simon and their staff. They went above and beyond every day to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The bungalows are spacious and nicely decorated each with a private deck. We loved their beach; very...

This is our third stay at Magic Reef, so that fact alone speaks for itself. When you arrive at Rarotonga airport the owners, Simon and Angela will personally meet you and transfer you to Magic Reef in an air-conditioned van. And take you back to meet your plane at the end of your stay. A fantastic fruit platter of mango,...
