Pros: Clean rooms, outdoor showers are great. Staff was friendly & helpful with recommendations and helping to organize reservations. Scooter rental right across the street. Just grab a lounge chair and some cocktails and you're good to go.

We stayed on a beachfront bungalow for Christmas - 6 nights. Great location, with beach view. The first 2 days the resort was almost empty, it was amazing! You can go snorkelling directly from your room, have a drink on the beach, relax in hamock, what else? Also, perfect for sunset! Even when busier, the place is small so still quiet and enjoyable. Restaurant is one of the best! Breakfast is nice and they offer 3 course diner everyday for NZD50, great quality. Christmas buffet was the best ever... Read more

Manuia Beach Resort is a nice property, well managed, quiet and welcoming. Amazingly, we had no TV in the room, which was wonderful. The staff was friendly, accommodating and interested in providing the best service possible. The restaurant on site is pleasant, and serves good quality food. Breakfast is included but limited to fruit, milk, coffee, pancakes, toast ,tea and cereal. I would definitely consider another vacation in Manuia. The two resort hosts, Chris and Alex were very attentive a... Read more

We stayed at Manuia Beach resort as a base for our honeymoon over eleven nights and the experience from beginning to end was amazing! The quality of service, friendliness of staff, the atmosphere and the environment were exactly what we were hoping for and the quality of food at the beach restaurant was first class. We absolutely loved every aspect of our stay at Manuia. The nature of the place is geared for relaxation and very reflective of Rarotonga and its unique peaceful, chilled out Co... Read more

We booked and pre paid for 2 nights so we could enjoy the room before catching a late flight the next night.As soon as we arrived the hosts kept telling us we would have vacate the room the next day,,what i didnt realise was 'when' ...they wanted us out at midday. They eventually came to the room telling us to pack our things and go. My partner made a trip to reception and it wasnt until he asked them 'whos got the money? They made some phone calls and we could stay. This whole experience really... Read more

This property is a reflection of Rarotonga itself - quiet, pristine, relaxing. Well manicured gardens, a lovely deep pool, great restaurant, the room was kept fresh and clean. We booked a beachfront room, with views out over the ocean. To a certain extent the rooms are kept quite simple - no TV, no phone, no free internet, the lack of these facilities actually forces you to cut off from reality to a certain extent, so actually helps you relax! Plus a child free property is also a big plus. ... Read more

We loved every minute of our stay in Manuia Resort in Rarotonga. The resort was very well presented with lovely rooms in top notch condition, with great outdoor showers. The beautiful gardens, pool and restaurant very well maintained. The white sand beach with sunset stunning! We were able to use the resorts snorkelling gear and the beach out front quite good. Best spot we found was Aroa beach for coral and diversity. We enjoyed our meals throughout our stay although BBQ night our least favour... Read more
