Our Thoughts on Pacific Resort Rarotonga
A very good 4 Star property which delivers an excellent holiday for just about every category of holidaymaker from families (children of all ages), couples, honeymooners, people wanting to be active, people wanting a totally relaxing holiday, wedding groups, 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 Pacific Resort. Pacific Resort itself has added to the Muri experience in no small way by constantly introducing and adding more services of its own, such things as the windsurfing lessons, sail boat & sailing lessons for all ages, kite boarding equipment, a therapeutic massage treatment room and a whole range of family activities and services including their wonderful Beach Hut 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.  

Pacific Resort Rarotonga offer two good-value wedding packages and also Vow Renewal Packages.  Their “Pacific Ceremony” is conducted within the beautiful gardens of The Resort while their very special “Island Ceremony” includes one of the off-shore islets on the Muri Lagoon.

The tariff at Pacific Resort Rarotonga includes:
● Daily Tropical/Continental Breakfast
     at Sandals Restaurant
● Free use of kayaks, snorkelling gear, beach towels
     and sun-loungers
● Free Garden Tour
● Free daily scheduled activities at the Beach Hut
● Free Kids Club (kids aged 6 to 12 years)
● Daily guest welcome orientation on the beach

What Pacific Resort Rarotonga Say About Themselves:
“Authentic Boutique... Rarotonga, land of jagged blue peaks, red earth valleys, aquamarine lagoons and crimson trees, is the emerald jewel of the Pacific. And at the heart of this sparkling gem is the equally stunning Pacific Resort Rarotonga.

Pacific Resort Rarotonga is situated in one of the world's most spellbinding spots. Stretching one kilometre along the south-eastern coast of Rarotonga, Muri beach is laden with glorious white sand, fringed by palm trees and lapped by the gentle waters of a shallow, safe lagoon.

We offer an intimate collection of 64 superb studio rooms, suites, two and three bedroom villas, each situated in a stunning palm-filled garden or panoramic beachfront location. 

No matter how you choose to fill your days and nights at this breathtakingly beautiful place that is Pacific Resort Rarotonga, one thing is certain - You'll leave feeling rested, restored and renewed; and above all, determined to return.”

There is a wide range of accommodation types at Pacific Resort Rarotonga – there’s something to suit everyone.  As you drive into Pacific Resort off the main circle island road you will note their road-side shop which sells a range of snack food and as you pass by, the resort swimming pool is on your left.  The accommodation units forming a crescent around the pool are some of the Premium Garden Suites and Premium Family Rooms. As you arrive at Reception, the same category of units, (these front on to the wonderful central tropical garden), finish just behind the two-storey blocks ahead which house the majority of the superb Beachfront Suites.

On the other side of the central tropical garden there are 2 identical, two-storey blocks which each contain four Standard Studio Rooms and four Standard Family Rooms (Open Plan). Between these blocks and the beach are four more single-storey Premium Garden Suites, Sandals Restaurant, Barefoot Bar & Grill and 2 more single-storey Premium Beachfront Suites.

The Pacific Resort’s fantastic Villas are located on the resort’s northern boundary and are separated from the other accommodation by a wide lawn dotted with coconut palms. There is a 3 Bedroom Beachfront Villa virtually on the beach, next back from the beach are two 3 Bedroom Lagoon Villas, so called because they offer lovely lagoon views, next back there are 2 blocks each containing two beautiful 2 Bedroom Premium Garden Villas.

Please note the term “studio” denotes an open-plan living space. The room descriptions are provided in an ascending order of tariff.
