Your Dream Vacation is Here

Little Polynesian Resort, Rarotonga

Located on the southern tip of Rarotonga directly on a white sandy beach of world class beauty and nestled within the foliage of palms, this idyllic, serene setting is home to the 14 secluded Beachfront Bungalows and Garden Studios known as Little Polynesian Resort. This premier beach location is widely considered as one of the island’s most beautiful and is complimented with enchanting sunrises and sunsets alike.
Welcoming guests aged 18 and over, this award-winning luxury boutique resort makes an ideal location for honeymooners and couples seeking a romantic picturesque escape. The Beachfront Bungalows offer an uninterrupted vista of the azure lagoon while the view of tropical gardens from the thatched Garden Studios is just as dazzling. The intimate dwellings with their tasteful, light coloured décor integrate harmoniously with nature’s beauty, impressing all with their contemporary Polynesian luxury and charm.
Time in this haven drifts by as you unwind and relax. Fill your days as you desire, whether it be on your private sun lounger immersed in a novel, or in a hammock drifting off, slumbering in the warm tropical air or simply enjoying the ambiance and chatting with friendly staff. For the more active relaxers, take advantage of the complimentary kayaks, paddle boards and snorkelling equipment, discovering the lagoon and its abundant tropical sea life. You are sure to be spellbound by the colourful coral reef and tropical fish at the marine reserve located right on Little Polynesian’s doorstep. Rarotonga offers much for the explorer or the light adventurer but at Little Polynesian Resort, it’s time to forget the cares of the everyday and let your senses take the lead.
Experience chic poolside dining at Little Polynesian Resort Restaurant and Bar, serving a fusion of modern European and Polynesian cuisine with the chefs taking delight in featuring fresh seafood and local produce. Indulge in a tropical cocktail (or two!) while appreciating open air dining overlooking the stunning salt water infinity pool and out over the unspoilt shimmering lagoon. In the evenings enjoy dining under the stars, soaking in the perfect blend of romance and fine cuisine, listening to the lapping of the ocean and warm breeze through palm trees.
Relish the privacy, seclusion and luxury and indulge in a Cook Island tropical vacation experience which will stay in your hearts and minds forever. Enjoy Little Polynesian Resort.
