Sunset Resort

Overview

Kia Orana and Welcome to The Sunset Resort, the Cook Islands leading Resort property. Sunset Resort is the perfect location to enjoy the best that Rarotonga has to offer. Whether you are visiting for a Romantic Honeymoon, a Sunset Wedding on the Beach, a Rarotonga Adventure, or simply a Sun and Sand getaway, Sunset Resort is the ideal location for your Cook Islands holiday.
Sunset Resort is idyllically situated on the sheltered western side of the island of Rarotonga, only minutes from Avarua township, and many restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. The secluded beachfront location provides guests with an unspoilt view of Rarotonga’s crystal clear aqua blue lagoon and breathtaking sunsets.
This intimate Resort features 35 spacious rooms and suites, situated either on the beachfront overlooking the lagoon, or beside either of our two swimming pools set amid lush tropical gardens. A variety of room types allow us to accommodate the needs of singles, couples, families or groups. Please note our policy of no children under 12 years of age.
The luxury accommodation and lush gardens are only a taste of what Sunset Resort will offer. Dine at our open-air restaurant ‘The Anchorage’, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and enjoy Happy Hour cocktails at our poolside bar ‘Drumbeat’. Relax on the beautiful white sandy beach overlooking the lagoon, or swim and snorkel amongst the colourful fish over the coral reef. What better way to end a sunny island day than to enjoy a cocktail on the beach watching the sun set over the lagoon. Sunset Resort has all the conveniences and features needed for a relaxing escape within friendly, intimate surroundings.
This personally managed, privately owned resort has an intimate atmosphere that will make every guest feel welcome and ensure they experience the magic of Rarotonga and its people.
