Kia Orana  


The colours of paradise ...
Your toes in the white sandy beach ...
Meeting the friendly reef fish in the blue lagoon...
Swaying in a hammock in the cool green shade of a coconut palm...
The true Cook Islands resort, in the heart of the South Seas.

Kia Orana and Welcome to The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa, the Cook Islands’ iconic Signature Resort.

Some say that until you’ve been to the Cook Islands, you have yet to truly experience the South Pacific.

Journey here to The Rarotongan to discover that true South Pacific spirit. Nestled directly on Aroa Beach, Rarotonga's best white sand beach on the island's sunshine coast, here you can experience a unique and special slice of paradise ~ the real Cook Islands.

And right in front of The Rarotongan, directly off Aroa Beach, you'll discover the Aroa Lagoon Marine Reserve, Rarotonga's best snorkelling spot. Here, encircled by the protection of the natural coral reef, you can play with the rainbow-coloured reef fish to your heart's content. A rare tropical treat.

You can find a number of hotels and resorts on Rarotonga, but only at The Rarotongan can you truly find Rarotonga in your resort.

When you're yearning for the tropical island escape of your dreams - complete with sun, sand, sea and the spirit of the South Seas - The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa awaits you.
