Loved this gem....the "whole package" includes the wonderful people we met, the remarkable accommodation, and the friendly and kindest staff which included Mary and Sally. We loved every thing about this resort. We will be back next year...

Stayed here in December 2017 and loved it. The location is about 10 mins from the airport and, as it's on the west coast, has the most amazing sunsets there too. No children is good for those looking to relax and if it was no smoking, it would be a bonus too. The rooms are clean and functional, with a good size fridge, free UV filtered water that can be collected from the restaurant and plenty of towels. The shower is outside, which seemed a little unusual, but actually really enjoyed it. The bathroom amenities of soap, shower gel, shampoo etc were great, but not regularly refilled so best take your own. Bug spray and insect repellent was provided and both needed, but that's just part of being in the islands. Chickens, cockerels and chicks everywhere, but that is Raro and don't be surprised if they are full volume outside your window at some random hour. The pool is great and a shower to rinse off outside. The loungers are plentiful and not overused. The water in the lagoon is amazing, but not too many fish to look at. The bar and restaurant is really good and there are several shops, restaurants and places to see and visit. The local bus stops outside and there is a scooter and car hire shop almost opposite. Staff were overall very helpful, friendly and you can book excursions, such a Koka Lagoon Cruises from the front desk which is really handy. Wifi was a little sketchy, but not overpriced. Overall, a really good place to visit and would recommend to all.

Room Tip: If you're going beach front, recommend BF1 or BF2 for least disturbance. G17, 18, 21 22 best gar...

Manuia Beach Resort is a stunningly beautiful place! The staff are amazing and so helpful. Set in a beautiful location it hardly gets too busy, over 18 years adds to the relaxation. We were swimming in the lagoon before breakfast most mornings.
They made mine and my partners stay for his 30th so enjoyable in March that we're returning again for New Years.

We recently stayed at this gem of a place and can’t speak highly enough of the friendliness and care afforded us. The manager of the resort even drove us in to town to visit the markets as there was not enough room on the minibus. The accomodation is clean, comfortable and well serviced. The restaurant offers great service with reasonable prices and the sand floor is great. No hesitation in recommending this resort to couples and families alike.

Busy year for me so a week away in Rarotonga is just what I needed.
Swimming, eating, sleeping and drinking is just what the doctor ordered.
This is an adult only resort - great restaurant and friendly staff. Pool beautiful and plenty of places to chill and watch the water in the lagoon. Thanks.
