A warm Kia Orana (welcome, bienvenue, willkommen) to one of Rarotonga’s newest and most deluxe accommodations.... Rarotonga Beach Bungalows fronts on a wide, ocean washed, white sand beach where the turquoise lagoon boasts one of the island’s safest swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking areas.
The aims of our management team are to provide luxury and privacy in a tropical, island setting. We strive to ensure our guests are left alone to unwind, enjoy, and relax each day. We encourage everyone to ’get wet’ swimming with the tropical fish that graze in the coral gardens at our doorstep.
Located on the southern coast, which usually assures calm and fresh climatic conditions, our bungalows are privileged to be situated in front of a ’Raui’ zone, where the entry to the lagoon is in a marine protected wildlife area. Thus, the tropical reef fish abound here in great numbers with various species of all colours imaginable.
Each of the five (5) individual bungalows is a free standing ’ngutu’are’ (home away from home) with a total surface area of 65 square metres - 700 square feet.
Conceptualised and built in the island style, each unit is elevated off the ground to allow cool breezes to circulate under the tile floor. To capture the Polynesian flavour, the exterior roofs are lined with coconut thatch, the ceilings decorated with island cloth, and the interior walls covered with split, woven bamboo.
The entire furniture theme is old style, tropical design made uniquely out of exotic wood. The mood and ’mana’ (feeling) of our interior decor strives to capture the local, native charm of yesteryear. White sand, Areca palms and rock gardens surround the private bungalows.
