Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Lagoon Breeze Villas, Aroa, Rarotonga, Cook Islands
Towards the end of 2011, this property (formerly known as Lagoon Lodges), changed hands and the then new owner/managers made great improvements to what was always a very good little resort but which had needed a refresh – that has been done and done exceptionally well. Whenever we visit Lagoon Breeze Villas we are always very impressed with the location, the grounds and gardens and the accommodation units. Every unit always looks great. Guests always enjoy their holidays at this property and everything is such good shape that 8 years on it is often very difficult to secure space (even with the addition of 6 extra 1 Bedroom Villas in June 2017), so we strongly suggest you book early! 

Unlike many of the smaller mid-range resorts on Rarotonga, Lagoon Breeze Villas happily accept families with children of all ages in all accommodation types; it is also a good choice for singles, couples and honeymooners looking for a small mid-range resort in a great location with a good standard of accommodation and services at mid-range prices.

The location is a highlight. At the southern end of Rarotonga’s Arorangi area, you find the Aroa Lagoon and this is where Lagoon Breeze Villas is located. Although the property is immediately across the road from the beautiful little white sand beach at Aroa, in some ways, the division of the resort and the beach, seems to add to the exclusiveness of the place. Guests in the 2 storey Two Bedroom Polynesian Villas enjoy good views of the lagoon and for all guests the beach is only a few steps away. It is literally only a five-minute walk to the Rarotongan Beach Resort and Sanctuary with their several restaurants. Kavera Central with its general store and its local café-style dining is a couple of minutes’ walk in the other direction. A Dive Shop and Coco Putt mini-golf with its café are both close by and the Wigmore Superstore is handy, but probably best accessed by hire motor-scooter, car or on the round-island bus which stops on demand right outside Lagoon Breeze Villas.

Although cooking facilities are included in all units the complimentary tropical breakfast served daily at Lagoon Breeze’s lovely little outdoor café is a great feature and provides guests with the opportunity to meet and mingle if they wish. We know you will enjoy the Happy Hour (4:30pm to 6:30pm) each evening as the sun sets over the lagoon and the sky over the interior mountains blazes with colour.

Normal rates include daily Tropical Breakfast, free use of snorkelling gear, kayaks sun loungers and beach towels and guests' use of the resort's self-service BBQs.

Minimum Stay Policy
Lagoon Breeze Villas has a minimum 3-night stay policy.

Room Categories (In ascending order of tariff)
Bullet Garden Studios:

Six spacious light and bright, open-plan units in 3 separate duplex blocks (2 units in each block); handy to the swimming pool and guest BBQ area. Every Garden Studio comes with a kitchenette (microwave and gas cooker), tiled floor throughout, dining table and chairs and a covered deck. We like the layout of these units, as, while they are open-plan studios, the kitchen and bathroom are off to one side, so they don’t impact too much on the sleeping/living area and staying in one of these units, you don’t feel like you’re living in a kitchen!

Existing Bedding: 1 Queen Bed plus 1 Single Bed
Additional Bedding:  A portacot for a baby can be accommodated in addition to the standard occupancy.
