Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Relax at Aramoana, South Coast, Rarotonga
An exceptional option for a family holiday on Rarotonga.  “Relax at Aramoana” is a great holiday home choice for a family of up to 8 (plus a baby) as it offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living room/kitchen/lounge and a large section for the safe enjoyment of parents and children of all ages.  The property is only 100 metres away from a beautiful south-coast beach and a lagoon which is swimmable at all tides and which provides interesting snorkelling and a usually calm environment for kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. It’s an ideal choice for extended families to share too. For even bigger families or a larger group of friends, we offer 2 other Aramoana properties in this vicinity, so if you are contemplating travelling with an extended family group, chat to Our Travel Specialist who will be happy to coordinate accommodation at three or more holiday home properties, each within easy walking distance of each other.

Mind you, Relax at Aramoana is also a very good option for 2 couples sharing an island holiday.  The house is big enough for each couple to enjoy their own bedroom wing, each of which comprises 2 bedrooms and a bathroom and the open-plan living area provides each couple with plenty of personal space. 

The beach is Immediately across the road and accessed down a short path, then a few steps down to the sand.  Guests at Relax at Aramoana have the use of a rustic-style beach deck which includes a lounging and a dining area, so gather a few snacks and drinks together and wander down to the beach anytime to enjoy the beach and the lagoon – the outlook from the beach deck is spectacular on the nights when the sunset lights up the lagoon.

Even though you have chosen to stay at a Holiday Home and not a resort as such, you will still enjoy housekeeping service every 3 days and staff living close by can respond quickly to any requests for extra services and quickly sort out any maintenance issues which might arise. The house is fully set up with linen, towels etc when you arrive, and the breakfast starter hamper provided means you can take your time to settle in before having to rush off to find supplies at the local supermarket.

When staying in a Holiday Home on Rarotonga’s south coast we recommend that you have us organise a rental car for at least a portion of your stay for ease of access to all the features of Rarotonga, especially if you are part of an extended family group.  Having a vehicle is not compulsory, as, if you feel like walking, there are several food outlets well within walking distance and the circle island buses pass by once every hour in both directions around the island.

Facilities and inclusions at Aramoana on the beach:
● Welcome breakfast starter hamper – includes:
     cereal, fruit, yoghurt, eggs, bread, jams,
     juice and coffee
● Local phone calls
● Use of kayaks & snorkelling gear
● Use of paddle boards
● Guest BBQ

What Relax at Aramoana say about themselves
"Aramoana is a very special place located on the south side of the Island down a driveway and set amongst landscaped gardens, this newly restored family home allows open living with ample space for relaxing from any room in the house. French doors from the lounge and bedrooms open to a garden of native tropical plants creating an ideal setting to unwind and put your feet up.

The home provides accommodation for up to 8 guests. It features a fully equipped modern kitchen, dining area and lounge, 4 bedrooms each with air-conditioning & screens. The beds are super-king sized which can be split to singles if required. 2 shared bathrooms and an adjoining laundry area with washing machine & clothes dryer. There are several options for outdoor dining on the property and BBQ facilities are available

Private beach access across the road offers an alternative seaside retreat for swimming, kayaking, snorkelling & relaxing. Known for one of the least populated beaches on the Island, the private deck (complete with enclosed kitchen facilities), under-cover lounging area & day beds provide the perfect getaway to chill out and take in the stunning ocean view.

We are easy walking or short driving distance to cafés restaurants and takeaways.  Wigmores, our village supermarket is open 7-days and is well-stocked with a huge range of grocery items, fresh, locally grown produce, dairy items and a complete range of organic products.  Therapeutic and sports massages, including hot rock treatments can be arranged “at home” and at your leisure, by our expert local therapists using traditionally made oils.  We can help by making spa, hair and beauty appointments for you at any of the many outlets on the island.”

General note re a holiday home stay.
Holiday homes are a very welcome option for a stay-put holiday on Rarotonga.  Obviously, individual holiday homes offer widely differing standards, specifications, facilities and services available. As a general rule, a holiday home is a private citizen’s private residence or holiday place and, unlike a stay at a resort, a manager or owner may not be available on-site. In the case of Relax at Aramoana, the holiday home is managed by the Aramoana Properties Group and assistance for maintenance matters, housekeeping, etc is available during business hours. Of course, it is always sensible to maintain a reasonable level of personal security and to keep up an insect repellent program no matter where you stay in Rarotonga. Through fully understanding what this accommodation style entails, a really enjoyable holiday can be had in a Rarotonga holiday home.

Getting to and from and around Rarotonga from Relax at Aramoana
Arrival and departure airport transfers will be included in your holiday package arrangements at required/agreed.  Depending on the arrival time of your flight into Rarotonga, transfer options may include a seat-in-vehicle transfer, a private car transfer or, especially for those who have previously visited Rarotonga, the option of picking up a rental car at the airport.

Once you are settled in at Relax at Aramoana, you will quickly come to grips with the circle island buses which pass by every hour heading both clock-wise and anti-clock-wise to and from Avarua, Arorangi and Muri. As your holiday home is located approximately half-way around the island it doesn’t really matter which bus you take to get to and from Avarua town. When heading for Muri, the best bus to take is the anti-clockwise service around the island. On your way beck, it’s best to catch the clockwise bus service.

For those who enjoy a walk, there are cafés, takeaways, restaurants and a supermarket – all within a 15-minute walk. Motor-scooters, rental cars and now electric bicycles are available to hire via Our Travel Specialists.  Relax at Aramoana is in an ideal spot for the use of battery-powered bicycles and we can pre-book these for you.  With pedal assistance, e-bicycles will go twice around the island on a single charge and batteries may be recharged using a standard power plug.  The rental of all vehicle types may be pre-arranged prior to your arrival in Rarotonga and included in your holiday package arrangements
