Manuia Beach Hotel

***In our opinion this is the Cook Islands Best Value Resort***

 

 Overview

On the sheltered, sunset coast of Rarotonga, Manuia Beach Resort is just 10 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the golf course, and only 15 minutes from the main town of Avarua. Wander down our hibiscus clad driveway and you have some of Rarotonga’s best restaurants within walking distance of the resort.

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.

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.

With a tranquil and romantic atmosphere and friendly staff, we provide guests with a life-changing experience. In the spirit of maintaining Manuia Beach Resorts charm as a ‘seclusion…escape…romance’ resort, children under 16 years are not permitted to stay.

Dining

Right on the Beach Restaurant and Bar is arguably one of the best locations on the island. You’re literally right on the beach. 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.
