CROWN BEACH RESORT & SPA
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Crown Beach Resort & Spa, Arorangi, Rarotonga, Cook Islands
The 4½ Star rated Crown Beach Resort & Spa with its 36 Villas and Suites has a lot going for it if you are looking for an adults-only Resort (they don’t accept accommodation bookings for under 16 year olds) in a remarkably good beachfront location. One of the highlights of a stay at Crown Beach is the fact that everything you need to have a perfect, relaxing and enjoyable holiday is right here on site.  Of course, most people visiting Rarotonga enjoy the whole island experience, but if you stay at Crown Beach you don’t really need to leave the property at all to have a great Rarotonga holiday. 

The location is right on a perfect beach and a lagoon with wonderful snorkelling and swimming, then there are the 2 restaurants, both of which receive excellent reviews. The newer Flambé Restaurant is at the entrance to the Resort and has the reputation of being one of the leading restaurants on Rarotonga. Open Friday and Saturday for dinner only, Flambé offers a fire-dance on Saturday and strictly caters for patrons aged 16 years and over). We experienced a meal at Flambé recently and found both the food and the ambience of exceptional standard. Their Oceans Restaurant is in the centre of the Resort and it’s here that the breakfasts are served and where the regular specialty nights are hosted. The breakfasts (which are included in the room tariff) are impressive, comprising a tropical breakfast buffet, which includes daily changing hot options. Kindly note that restaurant and entertainment schedules can vary by season.

Romantic Dinner on the Beach
A must-do at Crown Beach. A romantic dinner for 2 (or for up to 6 guests) can be arranged in one of the beachfront gazebos. As advised by Crown Beach Resort, the Romantic Dinner on the Beach package includes: “A heavenly setting in one of our two waterfront Gazebo's - complete with white linen, silverware, glassware, flowers & candles, flaming tiki torches, a gourmet 3-course dinner, bottle of sparkling wine, your own private waiter, a glorious sunset as your backdrop [weather permitting], twinkle lights and the sound of waves lapping on the beach.”  Available daily at a cost of NZ$302 for 2.

New for 2020 - Exclusive Breakfast on the Beach for 2:
Enjoy a magical morning breakfast in a private beachfront gazebo withyour own personal waiter, special setup, meal choices from an exclusive menu, a bottle of sparkling wine and a stunning backdrop - a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply to begin your day in absolute bliss.  Cost is NZ$150 for 2.

Both the Exclusive Breakfast and the Romantic Dinner on the Beach can be prearranged through OUR Specialists and included in your holiday package.

Being located on the western side of Rarotonga means glorious sunsets and whales passing just outside the reef in the whale migration season. The daily “Happy Hour” session from 4:00pm to 6:00pm each day provide ample opportunity for guests to enjoy Happy Hour-priced cocktails in a tropical beach location. For those guests seeking to pre-pay food and beverage charges, we can offer a range of options including Half Board (breakfast and dinner) and Full Board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) Meal Plans as well as an “All Inclusive Plan” which includes Full Board plus a Standard Alcoholic Beverages Package including wine, beer, mixed drinks and non-alcoholic drinks. Our Specialists have full details and costs.

Crown Beach offer 4 superb Wedding Packages – one to suit every requirement and budget from their “Secret Wedding for $1250.00” right through to their magnificent “Life Together” and “Endless Love” Packages.  Our Wedding Specialist has full details of all wedding packages as well as the special-value "Renewal of Vows" ceremony.

Right beside the resort car park and tucked away from the villas, Crown Beach’s Functions Centre caters for conferences. For a resort with only 36 accommodation units this is an excellent additional facility which is especially useful for those guests needing to combine business with leisure.
