Sunset Resort

Sunset Resort, Rarotonga, Cook Islands

In a delightful beachfront location on the west coast, facing the famous Rarotonga sunsets, this small resort of beachfront and garden studios is a charming place to spend a restful few nights. The self-catering studios and suites are decorated in traditional bright South Pacific fabrics and are ideal for independent guests. All have fully equipped kitchens including microwave ovens and fridge/freezers, although for those who do not wish to self-cater the on-site Anchorage restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.

There are also seven local and international restaurants within walking distance so you will never be stuck for somewhere to eat out. The grounds are filled with tropical plants and flowers and there is a white sandy beach right in front of the resort, which is protected by a reef. The pool is a perfect place to swim and there is a poolside cocktail bar for social drinks during the day.
