Manuia Beach Resort

The Manuia Beach is a small boutique property set on a beautiful, palm-fringed beach front on the western side of Rarotonga, sheltered from the easterly tradewinds and giving you amazing sunset views.  The hotel offers a very special experience tailored more for the adult market, as children under 12 years are not permitted.

 

There are just 24 spacious and modern rooms that are all recently refurbished (2106); 5 Beachfront Suites and 17 Premium Garden Suites, plus 1 VIP Premium Garden & 1 VIP Beachfront Suite, which are built in 12 duplex bungalow units. The rooms are all designed basically the same and feature a light, airy island decor.  The Premium Garden Suites offer a queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom with private courtyard shower, bathrobe and hairdryer, air conditioning and ceiling fans, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridge, IDD telephone, iPod dock/radio, in-room safe, iron and ironing board, work desk and chair, Wi-Fi Internet access (fee) and sliding patio doors to your private, furnished verandah with tropical garden views.  The Beachfront Suites offer the same amenities as the Garden Suites and are the front row of the bungalows overlooking the pool, beach and the ocean.  2 of the Suites have been upgraded with superior furnishings and decor, including original local artwork and hand-carved headboards, upgraded linens, towels, bathrobes and slippers, brand new 'Sleepyhead' king-size beds, are in a premium location and are classed as VIP Premium Garden or Beachfront Suites.  On arrival, there are fresh flowers, a local fruit platter, bottle of Moet Champagne and a welcome gift in each Suite.  Each day they deliver a local newspaper, have a turndown service and include a cooked breakfast each morning.  Guests staying in the VIP Garden or Beachfront Suites also have complimentary membership to the Rarotonga Golf Club for the duration for your stay.  All the suites can accommodate an extra single bed on request

 

One of the hotel's unique attractions is the beach-side, sand floored restaurant and bar, which is open from 7am till late.  The Beaches Restaurant offers a fresh varied menu for lunch and dinner, with a good selection of western and Polynesian-inspired dishes, including crisp salads and sandwiches for lunch, pastas, fresh meat and the freshest local seafood dishes for dinner, along with a good wine selection and a range of island cocktails from the bar.  Twice weekly, there is a beach barbeque featuring live music with traditional entertainment, and nightly cocktail hours are an ideal time to share a drink with your fellow travellers, or in quiet solitude on a beach chair, enjoying another stunning sunset.  Also, private dining can be arranged, on a special table on the beach or round the pool, or even on your suite's private terrace if you wish.

 

The infinity-edge beach-side pool and sun terrace is surrounded by tropical flowers and shrubs offering a great location to just lay back, relax and soak up the sun's rays.  There are plenty of sun loungers and shaded chairs and tables from which you can enjoy the sun and the view, and all just a few steps from the bar for cold refreshments.

 

For the active, the hotel is set on a beautiful sandy beach with easy access into the warm, shallow lagoon waters, for swimming and snorkelling, and offers free snorkelling equipment, traditional island crafts and customs, pearl talks, and can arrange the full range of water activities, such as deep sea game fishing, lagoon cruises, sailing, kayaking, mountain bike and electric eco-bike hire and many other paid tours and excursions for you.  Every day there is something different to try in the resort.  On Monday, they offer a free scuba lesson in the pool, so you can try it out before paying for more lessons and certification, Tuesdays take a seat on the Round Raro Mystery Bus Tour. Wednesdays, join the team for free drinks and nibbles and every Thursday, you can enjoy a informative talk on Pearl farming.  Fridays, Papa Pera holds ukelele lessons, and Saturday there is a complimentary shuttle to the market, and Sunday to the church for morning services.  If you need some gym time, guests have 24 hr free access to the Fitness Revolution Gym in Nakao, roughly 4km away.

 

The Manuia Beach Resort is a lovely resort for a wedding, with several wedding packages available, that include a beautiful beach or sunset wedding ceremony, decorated with tropical flowers and palm fronds.

 

The Manuia Beach Resort is a good value property in an excellent location, close to the airport and only 15 minutes from the town or Avarua, makes this somewhere to seriously consider for your stay in Rarotonga.
