Crown Beach Resort & Spa, Rarotonga

4

An adults-only boutique resort offering the ultimate in romance and spellbinding sunsets.

With a secluded beachfront setting in botanical gardens, this boutique resort is the perfect choice for a tranquil tropical escape. The freshwater swimming pool is one of the largest pools on the island and the white-sand beach hems a crystal-clear lagoon where you can snorkel in search of colourful marine life. After a day relaxing in the sun, splash out on a soothing treatment at the Spa Ariki.

Two restaurants serve a variety of cuisines from around the world. Oceans Restaurant offers a relaxed waterfront setting with stunning sea views and Pacific-Rim cuisine featuring fresh seafood and a fusion of flavours from Asia, the Antipodes and the Americas. The popular themed buffet nights feature live music and cultural dance troupes. If you’re looking for something special, head to Flambé Restaurant to enjoy fine dining with a difference. The fire-themed menu is inspired by the volcanic origin of the Cook Islands and a range of mouth-watering dishes are made with local produce, succulent meat cuts and fresh fish. Save room for one of the innovative and beautifully presented desserts such as Belgian chocolate and almond semi-freddo encased in a hand-made igloo. The impressive live music and fire show on Friday and Saturday nights is one of Rarotonga's dining highlights. Or, for more of an intimate occasion – arrange a sunset dining on the beach experience for complete privacy, complemented by the island’s famous fiery sunsets. There are also plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby, within walking distance or a quick taxi ride away.

With only 36 Polynesian-style villas spread across five acres of landscaped gardens, you really do get a sense of intimacy here. One Bedroom Villas are surrounded by lush gardens. If you like the privacy of the gardens but want finer facilities, it’s worth upgrading to a Courtyard Pool Suite with your own plunge pool. Splash out on a One Bedroom Beachfront Villa for unobstructed ocean views.
