Manuia Beach Hotel


Manuia Beach Resort is set right on the beach in private and peaceful surroundings on the sheltered sunset coast of Rarotonga. You will love the authentic Rarotongan accommodation, with the coconut thatched suites complete with island style decor and modern amenities such as air conditioning. Walk through the sandy path down to the water and be stunned by the beauty of the poolside area. The infinity pool, by the Beach Restaurant with its relaxed authentic Polynesian cuisine, loungers set invitingly facing the beautiful lagoon, and attentive local staff, will all set the stage for your dream get-away.

The comfortable dining furniture set on the sandy floor sets the stage for a true Polynesian experience. Watch the waves on the reef, follow the antics of the local children and fishermen in the lagoon, while you enjoy your complimentary tropical breakfast, or choose from the wider menu available. Lunch can be served at your lounger on the beach, or in the restaurant, whether it is from the light lunch menu or something more substantial, you choose. Cocktail hours are popular with special nights held on occasions complete with local entertainment. Dinner brings a number of options; Polynesian inspired menu can be served under the Kikau thatched roof of the restaurant, or on your special table by the beach or pool, where you can watch the sun go down and enjoy the night sky. Or why not enjoy a romantic dinner for two in a private setting with a special menu devised for the occasion.
