Little Polynesian Resort - Luxury Resort in Cook Islands

Traditional soul meets contemporary style beside a protected lagoon in Rarotonga

Gentle waves lap against the sand. The scent of tropical flowers drifts through the gardens. Palm trees frame endless views of the deep blue Pacific. At Little Polynesian Resort, it’s time to forget the cares of the everyday and let your senses take the lead.

The exclusive bungalows and studios at this boutique escape have Polynesian craftsmanship at their core. High, vaulted ceilings of traditional ‘Are’ bungalows create a light, soothing atmosphere – look out for hand carved symbols on the wooden fixtures. Beachfront Bungalows are just steps from the sand, while Garden Studios are immersed in botanical beauty. If you’re in the mood to relax, recline into a hammock on the secluded beach or retreat into a shaded lounger on your private sundeck. The resort restaurant will keep you topped up with cold drinks and light bites throughout the day. While the evening menu stretches from the Pacific flavours of the Cook Islands to modern European cuisine.

Little Polynesian Resort helps you unlock the treasures of Rarotonga. Explore the lagoon by kayak and you may see jewel-bright fish in the marine reserve. Or head off to discover highland villages and challenging walking trails. Be sure to return in time for sunset to sip cocktails while the palm tree shadows stretch across the sand.
