Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Crystal Blue Lagoon Luxury Villas, Muri Lagoon, Rarotonga
Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas are self-contained villas right on a magnificent beachfront location on Muri Beach.  The complex is independently rated as 5-Star and we find it right up to expectation at that rating. The location is almost in the centre of Muri Beach with exceptional views of the lagoon, the lagoon motus and the ocean.  It is a really easy walk up and down the beach (or the road if you’re not a sand-between-the-toes sort of person) to all the restaurants, resorts, shops, cafés, the Night Market and all the attractions of Muri. The site of Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas is the site of one of the first holiday-stay properties ever built on Muri Beach – it really is a beauty.

You can’t really fault anything about this place.  The infinity pool is placed central to all the villas and the exclusive pool decking is well equipped with sun-loungers and the like.  The pool is beside the block of 2 Beachfront Villas and in front of the block containing the 2 Lagoon View Villas, indeed the Lagoon View Villas face over the pool to the lagoon and ocean. All Villas are sophisticated, modern and bright and capture the cooling sea breezes which wash this side of Rarotonga.  All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have a ceiling fan.

Guests enjoy the many thoughtful, additional facilities provided, such as bathrobes, a hairdryer in every bathroom, a TV in every bedroom (as well as a large TV in the living room) and a large selection of DVD movies in each Villa. Every Villa has a patio complete with Weber BBQ, an outdoor dining set and plenty of lounging furniture too.

The area occupied by Crystal Blue Lagoon is a private sanctuary which is gated on the land side ensuring a tranquil stay. It’s a great choice for a discerning couple, a couple of friends each seeking privacy, 2 couples travelling together or a family with older children. With only 4 units, this place is in high demand.

The entire property takes 18 guests maximum in 4 x 2 Bedroom Units and the whole resort may be booked for a single party – an ideal spot for a perfect wedding.  The resort requires a minimum 5 (consecutive) nights stay for a whole of resort buy-out.

Getting To and From Crystal Blue Lagoon Luxury Villas Rarotonga
Guests at Crystal Blue have a choice of 2 arrival transfer options. The VIP private vehicle arrival transfer is a great way to start a holiday in Rarotonga and in our opinion, is well worth the relatively small additional cost.  
Bullet A VIP transfer includes the following services once guests clear customs and Immigration formalities at Rarotonga Airport
A chilled bottle of water 
A fresh flower Ei (garland) 
A bottle of bubbles
A transfer to Crystal Blue Lagoon in a private exclusive vehicle
A brief orientation of your Villa on arrival.

Bullet The second option is a seat-in-vehicle (bus) transfer, which costs a little less than the VIP transfer
