Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Arcadia Retreat, Aretuna Road, Arorangi, Rarotonga
A delightfully different little property with great prices, a special location and great hosts.  The location is special – inland on the western “Sunset” side of Rarotonga just a few steps off the circle-island road surrounded by tropical trees, lawns and flowering shrubs and views of the internal mountains but still only 200 metres from a beautiful beach.  It is an easy, short walk to Rarotonga’s favourite “Beluga Café” as well as the famous ‘Pacific Fish & Chips” shop and small village provisions shops.  A short car, bike or scooter ride will access kayak hire and the many other cafés and bars scattered along the roadside in Arorangi Village.

The three villas face a swimming pool, lily pond and waterfall.  The pool surrounds include not only a covered guest BBQ area but also a thatched pool gazebo and plenty of sun-loungers and outdoor tables and chairs.

The 3 villas have been individually designed to capture the island breezes and lazy ceiling fans aid the cross-flow ventilation.  Each villa is the size of a not-so-small house and sports 2 bedrooms, a full-size kitchen with a fridge/freezer, one modern bathroom and dining and lounge area.  Each has excellent internal/external flow giving indoor/outdoor dining options.

Apart from the beautiful surrounds and the spacious villas, a highlight of a stay here is the ability of every guest to access the friendly, professional owner/management team for local advice and recommendations on anything to do with Rarotonga’s features and activities.

An ideal base for a Rarotonga tropical holiday, Arcadia Retreat is also a great spot for an intimate wedding, birthday party, a small business retreat or seminar.

Getting to and from Arcadia Retreat
Arrival and departure Airport transfers are included in package arrangements as required and agreed.  If 4 travellers are sharing a villa, it is often advantageous to share a private car transfer rather than take the standard bus transfers – and you get away from the airport earlier too!

The Circle Island Buses stop on the main road a short 100 metre walk down Aretuna Road. 

Kids Policy
Children aged 16 years and older are accepted at Arcadia Retreat.
