Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Pacific Resort, Muri Beach, Rarotonga
This property delivers an excellent holiday for just about every category of holidaymaker. Excellent for families (children of all ages), couples, honeymooners, people wanting to be active, people wanting a totally relaxing holiday,  the budget-conscious and those looking for a higher degree of accommodation and services – you can pretty-well name it and Pacific Resort Rarotonga fits the bill.

The location, towards the northern end of Muri Beach and the Muri Lagoon is stunning.  Over the years, a whole raft of outside services has sprung up around Pacific Resort in the form of cafés, restaurants, other smaller resorts, food-markets, road-side stalls and so on and they have all added to the colour and the vibrancy of the enjoyable holiday environment around the resort. Pacific Resort itself has added to the Muri experience in no small way by a therapeutic massage treatment room and a whole range of family activities and services including their wonderful Pacific Kids Club, their Kids Stay, Play & Eat Breakfast Free program and their babysitting service too. 

The resort-wide upgrade to a new on-demand entertainment system, including an extensive selection of movies and TV shows is a welcome additional service/facility, and, most recently, the full refurishment of Sandals Restaurant.  The temporary beachfront marque has been removed and the area it previously occupied, converted into a sun lounger platform.

The tariff at Pacific Resort Rarotonga includes:
● Daily Tropical/Continental Breakfast at Sandals Restaurant and complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi
● Free use of kayaks, beach towels, Stand-Up-Paddle-Boards and sun-loungers
● Free Kids Club and daily activities (kids aged 6 to 12 years)
