Activities/Attractions: The Cook Islands are made up of 15 islands and atolls, with a surprisingly small land area of only 240 square km. What they lack in size, however, they more than make up for geographical location over the Pacific Ocean., taking up more than1.83 million square km Considering it's 1,433 km from Penrhyn to Mangaia, for example, it’s no surprise!

There is plenty to see and do at the Aro'a Beachside Inn, depending of course on whether you can tear yourself away from the magnificent sight of crystal clear waters, superb sunsets and soft white sand! Here at Aro'a, we have a number of activities you can participate in, or facilities you can use. These include:

  • Push Bikes - find your way around our small island, which is mostly flat on the main roads and take a picnic for the day
  • Water sports -  We have kayaks and snorkelling equipment/reef shoes available for you to use at any time
  • Extra activities - We can also supply you with the equipment for Boules, Badminton, Horse Shoes, Book Swap Library and a variety of Board Games

"Lovely to get home and find your friendly message. We really enjoyed our stay with you and will certainly pass the 'secret' of your beachside hideaway on to friends and family. Thank you both and your staff  for making us feel welcome, at home, relaxed and part of the family. Our trip home was smooth and uneventful - down to earth with a vengeance on reaching a cold Auckland and a colder Rotorua! Heard one 'horror' story on the plane from a Dunedin family and thanked our lucky stars that we had chosen the Aro'a Beachside Inn - we passed on a leaflet to them and they were suitably impressed by our enthusiasm. We will remember Rarotonga, yourselves, your lovely establishment and our holiday there with great pleasure and certainly hope to return in the not-too-distant future."

"We had a lovely flight home, arriving to wet weather which was a shock to the system.  We want to thank you one and all for the lovely time we spent in your company and really appreciate your hospitality.  We will savour the lovely moments that we had sitting on the balcony looking out on to the reef and swimming with the fish.  God bless you all as you reach out to all who come and stay in your apartments.  I am sharing the wonderfully good time with all I come in contact, saying that Aroa Beachside Inn is the place to stay."

"We had such a good time in Raro, mainly thanks to you guys, your staff and the accommodation and service you provided.  A BIG THANK YOU for making our stay so memorable, so friendly, very laid back and just what we needed.  We have been spreading the word about your place, the fabulous location, the beach bar, the BBQs, the wonderful host and hostess.  Have some great pics, they have been spread around too."

"I'm a travel agent in NZ and have just had some of my clients return from their relaxing trip away to Rarotonga. They are about the 4th couple I have sent to stay at Aro'a this year and they came home raving about that place. I was in Rarotonga last year with some agents checking out the place and we were lucky enough to spend an evening at Aro'a and I fell in love with it and have since then been able to sell it so easily and people have come home so pleased they stayed there and just raving about it. My most recent clients P & K - they were looking for a relaxing holiday away somewhere warm and somewhere they could just forget everything. Aro'a was the place for them in my mind and they have come home feeling refreshed and relaxed. They loved the beach, the sunsets and the location.  They are already asking for another holiday there  this time next year. They said the staff there were just brilliant and have left an everlasting impression.  The BBQ was fantastic and they fell in love with Jim. Thanks so much for all your hard work ... keep it up... no doubt you will. Thought you might enjoy reading how much people love your place ... not only for its quiet and beautiful beach, but for its friendly and helpful staff. I will continue to send my clients to Aro'a with 120% confidence."

"All the Staff including JB - are helpful and friendly.  Keep it that way! Also the informal atmosphere is great - Jim being very good at bringing strangers together. P. was very happy with the animals - I hope we will return - We have absolutely no complaints and no suggestions - I particularly liked the way the garden is kept so well and told the lady gardener concerned."
