Your Adults-Only Absolute Beachfront Sanctuary

Enjoy one of Rarotonga's best beach and lagoon locations. With one big difference. Here at Sanctuary Rarotonga-on the beach (Adults Only), the beach and lagoon are practically all your own.

If you're searching for the place to deeply relax into each other's company, cocooned in your own private space, untroubled by the crazy busy world far away, then you've found it here at Sanctuary Rarotonga-on the beach (Adults Only). This is just the place for that perfect peace and privacy to reconnect with your special someone. 

Take a few languid steps from your suite and wriggle your toes into the sugar-white sands. Let your eyes drink in the shimmer and sparkle of the crystal-clear blue lagoon. Contemplate the vast, vast Pacific Ocean just beyond the natural coral reef. 

Enjoy some luscious fresh tropical fruits for breakfast, then take a few steps and glide into the clean, clear waters of Aroa Lagoon for a refreshing morning dip, at any tide. Chase that up with a delicious lunch under the pergola beside the Sanctuary's secluded pool, then relax in the warm sunshine with a good book and a cool drink.

Mid-afternoon and the lagoon beckons again, this time to play with the many jewel-coloured tropical fishes which make Aroa Lagoon Marine Sanctuary the island's best snorkelling spot. Imagine that, Rarotonga's best snorkelling spot, straight off your own resort beach.  Return from your snorkelling adventure at your leisure. Then slip into something light and comfortable and head down for a sunset cocktail and some mouth-watering beach-cuisine at the Bluewater Grill.

Just before bed, take a stroll hand-in-hand on the moonlit beach under a velvet-blue canopy of zillions of twinkling stars as the sound of the waves crashing on the reef carries across the lagoon. 

No rush. No schedule. Just the beautiful easy rhythm of the tides, the sun, the moon, and some perfect peace in which to reconnect with yourself and your beloved. And the perfect excuse? That can be an anniversary, special birthday, honeymoon, babymoon, wedding or...just a longed-for and much-needed romantic escape. 

This is your time to indulge in this adults-only, absolute beachfront boutique resort with a distinctive South Pacific ambiance, secluded white sands right on Rarotonga's preferred sunshine southwest coast, crystal-clear blue lagoon, spa, casual gourmet restaurant and unique swim-up pool bar. 

Your beautiful Beachside Suite or Beachfront Suite comes complete with an Italian-tiled bathroom, raintree vanity top, black pearl shell accents, rattan-lined walls and island-style thatched roof. Beachside Suites and Beachfront Suites are set directly on the secluded shores of Aroa Beach. Select from beach-level or one-level up with its high-pitched roof and high-angle views from your balcony. 

There's a wealth of tours and markets around Rarotonga to enjoy. Whether you can drag yourself away is another matter.
