Rarotonga Resorts for the Family

The Rarotongan Beach Resort and Lagoonarium

The Rarotongan Beach Resort and Lagoonarium is an awesome spot with something for the whole family. Located right on Rarotonga’s best white sandy beach, Aroa Beach, it is easy to kick back, and relax while staying at this iconic resort. The resort has a day spa for the parents and a kids club for the little ones to spend their days.

It is also an amazing spot to hand feed the reef fish and go snorkelling in the lagoon - they even offer night snorkelling tours for those of you adventurous enough to give it a go.

Romantic Rarotonga Getaways

Manuia Beach Resort

The Cook Islands are well known for their amazing romantic getaways, and where better to reconnect than at the Manuia Beach Resort. This resort is all about privacy, luxury, and connection, with a cocktail and a massage to go with it. At the Manuia, you are literally right on the beach, with dining options where you can dig your toes in the warm sand. The Manuia Beach Resort really takes the term ‘beachfront’ to a whole new level.

We strongly recommend the beachfront suite, with Polynesian inspired interiors and stunning ocean views. You never have to go far to submerge yourself in Rarotonga's beautiful waters.

Crown Beach Resort & Spa

Now we have already talked about the Crown’s exemplary dining options, but we also highly recommend this spot for honeymooners. The Crown Beach Resort & Spa is definitely a great pick for those couples who want to invest a little bit more in their honeymoon.

The Crown recommends the Beachfront Villa as their best honeymoon option. This top spot is nestled right on the beach and is a stone's throw from the crystal blue waters of the lagoon. The Crown offers a romantic dinner package set in a waterfront gazebo. Complete with a private waiter, wine, and the delicious food that the Crown is known for, this is a must do.

For those seeking private luxury, this is definitely the way to go.
