For couples in love, there’s a Personal Wedding Planner to create your dream tropical sunset beach wedding, right beside Aroa Lagoon, the Lagoon of Love, and all-inclusive weddings and private candlelit dinners are a specialty.

BEACHSIDE ROOM: Our tropical-styled Beachside Rooms are less than a minute’s casual stroll to the water’s edge of Aroa Lagoon Marine Reserve but are not located directly on the beach. Located in The Rarotongan’s 500 village, half of the Beachside Rooms are on the ground floor with the other half on the first floor with high vaulted ceilings and high-angle views – but still no taller than a coconut tree! Up to 10 Beachside Rooms can be confirmed as interconnecting at time of booking, which is a real boon for families and family groups holidaying together. Beachside Rooms offer the full range of standard in-room features and services. Beachside Rooms are a great-value option offering full access to The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa’s great range of facilities and amenities.

2-BEDROOM FAMILY SUITE: The 2-Bedroom Family Suite is a compact, great-value option for young families of 2 adults & 2 children wanting separate bedrooms, or up to 3 adults travelling together (no additional charge for 3rd adult). This cosy suite has a master bedroom with queen-size bed and flat-screen TV, and a second bedroom with 1 double bunk (or 1 single bed) and its own flat-screen TV. The bathroom features a bathtub which is a boon for young families. The kitchenette includes a stovetop and microwave plus refrigerator and a cosy dining area. The 2-Bedroom Family Suite has no outdoor verandah, no view nor garden aspect and is fully air-conditioned.

BEACHFRONT ROOM: The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa is Rarotonga’s most absolute beachfront resort, set directly on the island’s best long stretch of secluded beach, Aroa Beach, overlooking the sparkling blue waters of Aroa Lagoon, the Lagoon of Love. The Beachfront Rooms are located on absolute beachfront, enjoying views across the white sandy beach and crystal-clear blue lagoon, as well as beautiful views of the island’s stunning tropical sunsets (The Rarotongan is on the island’s sunshine and sunset coast, on Rarotonga’s stunning southwest shores!). The Beachfront Rooms offer the full range of our standard features and services, and are located in our 300 village at the western end of Aroa Beach. Half of these standard guest rooms are on ground level, the other half are on a second storey. Which one is better depends on whether you prefer direct access to the beach from your verandah, or a vaulted ceiling and views across the beach and lagoon from your upper-storey deck. Whatever the case, if a room with a view is important to you – and what a view! – then one of our Beachfront Rooms is ideal. All Beachfront Rooms are available as interconnecting when requested at time of booking. Larger groups can even have up to 7 in a row!

Featuring a King Bed, elegant polished tropical wooden floors, rattan-lined walls, tropical-styled furniture, TV, privately-commissioned lighting laced with black pearl shell, open-air shower, outdoor ‘starlet’ spa bath on the verandah, and spacious bathroom with rain tree vanity top and over-sized double basins, the Honeymoon Pool & Spa Bungalow offers an incredible sense of freedom with spectacular indoor-outdoor flow through four wide openings onto the verandah, and the broad encircling deck means that sun-lovers can follow the sun all day in complete privacy.
