Rarotonga Island. Cook Island. Polynesia. South Pacific Ocean. A waitress serves delicious next to the poolside at the luxurious Little Polynesian Resort in Rarotonga. Nestled on the southern tip of Rarotonga, Little Polynesian Resort is a sophisticated playground for grown-ups. Here, serenity is certain, seclusion is guaranteed, and romance is everywhere. This is a Resort of unpretentious luxury where idyllic beaches beckon. The Beachfront Ares offer an uninterrupted vista of the azure lagoon while the view of tropical gardens from the garden thatched Ares is just as dazzling. Welcoming guests over the age of 15 years only, the primary clientele of the Resort are honeymooners and couples. Set on an unspoilt beach, the Resorts dwellings ooze Polynesian charm and luxury. Spend your days roaming the beaches and sipping fresh-fruit cocktails by the pool. Traditional architecture complements the island’s natural beauty, and the bungalows are designed with every modern luxury, from gazebos with daybeds to outdoor showers. Experience the epitome of Polynesian luxury in our well-appointed beach and garden accommodations. The romance of traditional Polynesian architecture meets the creature comforts of the West in our modern interpretations of the local dwellings, or Are as they are known. Rendered in a minimalist palette of ivory and local woods, the spare elegance of our rooms takes the romance quotient up a notch. Traditional accents such as Wild Hibiscus, Mangaian (coconut) sinnet weaving on beams as well as a thatched roof with natural pandanus add to the ambience of our South Seas paradise. The Little Polynesian offers all the amenities one would expect from the Cook Islands’ most upscale boutique resort. Our overbeach Ares (bungalows) promise aimless days of looking out to the lagoon’s turquoise waters and waking up to the gentle sound of waves, while the scent of tropical flowers fills the air around our Pia Tiare (garden units). Whichever you choose, we guarantee you will be immersed in nature at the Little Polynesian.
