The last time my hubby and I had a break away together was our honeymoon 13 years ago. We decided to go to Rarotonga for our holiday and WOW! we certainly hit the jackpot by booking Manuia Beach Resort. After we checked in, we walked down the unique sandy pathways towards our room which was a beachfront suite and I...

We will be return! We had an amazing and relaxing time at Manuia Beach. The facilities are just awesome, from the rooms through to the infinity pool, loungers, beach, snorkeling - the lot. The whales putting on a display off the reef was a magical bonus highlight. The hospitality shown by Sue and her team is heartwarming, and her Tuesday...

This is a basic resort with I level units We found this to be the ideal place for anyone to relax and unwind Children under 16 are not allowed here and you have the problem of children running around unsupervised and screaming as we found from our holiday last year in Fiji.

I had a wonderfully relaxing time during my stay at the Manuia Beach Resort. It is a resort for over 18s. You are given a 120MB of free wifi you can use, though it is not always easy to access the Internet. It is located on the sheltered side of the island and it has its own restaurant and bar...

This is a beautiful quiet resort with amazing friendly staff. We stayed in a garden villa which was lovely and peaceful. Everything is beautifully maintained. You take your shoes off and head for the sandy floor restaurant on the beach. Nice to sit and eat breakfast and enjoy the fresh sea air and the sound of the waves on the...

This is our second holiday to Rarotonga and our second stay at Manuia. Wow we had another fantastic holiday. This place is adults only and set on the sheltered side of Rarotonga with the best sunsets. We stayed in Room 7 very close to the beach but all rooms are close to the beach. We love the outside shower and...

This is our second visit to this resort in Raratonga. There are probably other good places to stay, but we loved it the first time and wanted to have the same experience again. The resort is clean, comfortable and well positioned. Getting around the island is easy- bus at the door. The resort is on the beach, so great swimming,...

We had a lovely dinner here on the beach. Seafood platter for 2. A storm came in and we all got a little wet, but it added to the atmosphere. Staff were lovely as well. Take your shies off and sir at tables in the sand right on the waters edge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your Polynesian Paradise at Manuia Beach Resort awaits you... Marvel at the magical sunsets over a sparkling blue lagoon, while lounging on your sheltered, white sandy beach fringed with swaying coconut palms. Wander through the tropical gardens on your way to the beach side infinity pool. Rest your elbows on the pool edge and soak in the view across the beach, through the lagoon onwards to the waves crashing on the barrier reef beyond. Sip a refreshing tropical cocktail delivered to you from the Beaches Restaurant and bar, or enjoy your Polynesian inspired meals in the restaurant while you trail your toes through the sandy floor. Manuia Beach Resort - your Cook Islands resort accommodation - is set right on the beach in private and peaceful surroundings on the sheltered sunset coast of Rarotonga. You will love the authentic Cook Islands style 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, Beaches Restaurant and Bar 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 Rarotongan get-away. ... more   less
