The Beachfront Rooms are located on absolute beachfront, enjoying views across the white sandy beach and crystal-clear blue lagoon, as well as beautiful views of the island’s stunning tropical sunsets (The Rarotongan is on the island’s sunshine and sunset coast, on Rarotonga’s stunning southwest shores!). The Beachfront Rooms offer the full range of our standard features and services, and are located in our 300 village at the western end of Aroa Beach. Half of these standard guest rooms are on ground level, the other half are on a second storey. Which one is better depends on whether you prefer direct access to the beach from your verandah, or a vaulted ceiling and views across the beach and lagoon from your upper-storey deck. Whatever the case, if a room with a view is important to you – and what a view! – then one of our Beachfront Rooms is ideal. All Beachfront Rooms are available as interconnecting when requested at time of booking. Larger groups can even have up to 10 in a row!

Garden Room
