Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on The Edgewater Resort & Spa, Arorangi, Rarotonga.
The Edgewater Resort & Spa is the best-known Cook Islands resort, offering affordable luxury on the sheltered west coast of Rarotonga. The Resort's prime location puts Rarotonga's natural splendour front and centre; the magnificent sunsets, surrounding lush green mountain backdrop and the views over the white sandy beach and deep blue turquoise lagoon. A big resort with a big heart that has been extending its warm Kia Orana welcome for more than 40 years. Yet it's not just the backdrop that makes The Edgewater Resort & Spa the best accommodation Rarotonga has to offer. What sets this resort apart is what The Edgewater brings to this stunning island location: great dining, first-class entertainment, a dedicated kids' club, health spa and sparkling pool. As the largest Cook Island’s resort, The Edgewater has more space, more activities and more to offer than any other Cook Islands holiday.
