Sparkling blue water, an amazing white sand beach and tropical gardens frame our small and intimate 4 star boutique resort. Sand paths separate just 24 Polynesian style garden or beachfront suites. All suites underwent a full refurbishment completed in May 2013 and each one features bright and spacious Polynesian inspired decor with modern amenities including air conditioning and daily maid service. Our brand new 2 bedroom apartment is located at the rear of the resort above the main office and offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living area with views over the stunning gardens and partial lagoon views.
Overlooking the fresh water infinity pool, our famous sand floor "OTB (On the Beach) Restaurant and Bar" - serves a delectable mix of South Pacific cuisine in a thatched-hut setting. Weekly entertainment includes: Daily happy hour from 4 6pm, Wednesday and Saturday night - live music, and Sunday night our famous BBQ buffet with live island music.
The historic palace of Tinomana Ariki (Paramount Chief of Arorangi), a fine example of one of our historic limestone churches, is a must to visit and the nearby walking tracks to Raemaru (Table top flat mountain with a scared marae at its base) or Rarotonga hospital hill are well worth the effort ,with fantastic views as your reward when you reach the top.
