The owners, Kylie and Marshall are a great couple and full of knowledge and helpful suggestions for your stay on Rarotonga. The cabins are basic but have all you need to self-cater. They are very clean and comfortable and the windows are screened so I didn't notice that much problem with insects/mosquitos (which I heard people staying at other resorts...

I stayed with my two Daughters in adjoining Bungalows and although its not on the beach, Arianna's a really good place for a self catering holiday, with a small store just down the road. The Bungalows are really clean and the pool is excellent there is a games room with books and a TV if needed. The managers are a...

My elderly mother and myself went to Rarotonga for a holiday over Christmas. Ariana's was able to offer us a transfer from the airport to their wonderful Bungalow's. Mum loved the fact that there was so much fruit( banana, pawpaw, lychee, passionfruit, avocado) available to be eaten at no charge. She brought her Ninja blender along and we had fruit...

Have previously stayed at a couple of resorts on the Island but this time went for a self-contained less expensive option and discovered Ariana Bungalows, Kylie and Marshall's little piece of paradise. They are a great couple, laid-back, but hard working at providing guests with a great experience. From pickup at the airport to supplies of fresh coconut pawpaw and...

My first time in Rarotonga, and travelled with 2 friends, who stayed in a separate unit. Kylie & Marsh - the hosts from NZ, make this such an awesome place. They bent over backwards to make sure our stay was enjoyable, relaxing and fun. The units are all very clean, neat and tidy with everything you could ask for -...

We were greeted by Marshall at the Airport as previously arranged. Then we met Kylie, they are so nice, with lots of knowledge about the island. We stayed in an one bedroom bungalow, it was well cleaned, with a handy kitchenette. We were very impressed with how clean and well maintained the place is, gardens look amazing and we were...

Our small family spent last week at Ariana Garden Bungalows and we loved every minute. Kiwi managers Kylie and Marshall were great hosts. They were never intrusive but always available if required and went beyond our expectations. The bungalows are clean and comfortable but not fancy, the tropical gardens and grounds are immaculately maintained and the atmosphere is as chilled...

Imho this place is lovely. The bungalows are with no fancy frills but with everything you need and very spacious, the garden is very nice and the area one of the best of the island, far from the chaos and with picturesque valleys behind. The prices are great and i'm sure that I could not have wished for better. You...

“Stay more than a week, and it doesn't really matter if you are pool side or garden view as the pool is less than 1 min walk from any of the bungalows. Take earplugs if roosters will annoy you, but this is just general RARO advice cuz there are chickens everywhere on the island, we even saw a teeshirt complaining about the roosters hahaha.”
