Castaway has been completely renovated with the addition of a new bar right on the beach named Wilson’s Beach Bar.
Castaway Resort is a small, quiet and secluded island paradise boutique resort featuring a mix of twelve units built on the edge of Rarotonga’s sunset side of the island offering views of a white sandy beach, glorious turquoise lagoon, reef and ocean beyond. The furnishings and décor capture the tropical flavor of the island with the design and colors reflecting a light and airy tropical beachside living. With a friendly small team we offer personal and intimate service at your door. We offer a range of accommodation at very cost effective rates for all types of travelers. Castaway Resort does not accept children under 16 years and offers accommodation at cost effective rates for all types of travelers. Watch the people fish in the lagoon, and look for humped-backed whales passing off the reef in the months of July to November, swimming or snorkeling from the beach, kayaking out to the reef or sipping your favourite cocktail while viewing the best sunsets on the island…all this and more at Castaway Resort. This friendly little resort is well known for its fantastic beach location, quirky character and relaxed ambience.
