The Palm Grove Resort Rarotonga is such a beautiful, relaxing hotel in the Cook Islands! If you’re looking for beach bungalows to stay in, the Rarotonga Palm Grove is the perfect retreat.
The Cook Islands are becoming more and more popular with tourists from around the world. I recently returned from my first visit to Rarotonga, the main island, and fell in LOVE. The gorgeous white sand beaches, turquoise waters, plenty of adventures, warm weather and year-round sunshine, delicious local foods, warm and welcoming people, and the proud culture, everything about the country is worth writing home about!

Stay at the Palm Grove Resort in Rarotonga
Palm Grove boasts 26 great free-standing bungalows and sits on 5 acres of land, part right on the beach, and part across the road in a lush garden area. Property amenities include an open-air restaurant and bar, on-site reception and tour desk with car and motorbike rentals, fresh-water swimming pool and bbq area in our quiet garden, library, and laundry facilities.
The Yellow Hibiscus is Palm Grove’s restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day, and has a full bar. Guests staying at the resort receive a complimentary breakfast each morning, which includes a light fare of fruits, juices, fresh coffee, cereal, yogurt, and toast, there was a bowl of fresh coconut each morning, that was my absolute favorite! You can always ask the chef to whip you up some pancakes and eggs for an additional fee.
The perfect location on the island
I think the location of this resort is perfect for those who don’t necessarily want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustling tourist areas, yet close enough to get there with ease. The resort lies East of A’roa Beach, and a few miles West of Titikaveka Beach, which people tend to say is the most beautiful on the island.
Go a couple of miles further past Titikaveka and you’re in Muri, which is the most popular tourist spot on the island! The airport is a leisurely 20-minute drive.

This is what paradise truly means. Wake up to the sounds of gently crashing waves, and open up your plantation shutter doors to see the gorgeous crystal blue ocean?! BLISS.
The tropical decor, updated amenities, and wooden beams make this bungalow unique, air conditioning and a private patio overlooking the ocean are highlights, you can’t get these things just anywhere on the island! I require that you book a beachfront bungalow, there’s really no other way to go!
Look at this view from the oceanview patio…
We also stayed in one of their garden rooms, it was a little bigger than the beach-front bungalow and is better for families since it sleeps more people. There are also 2 and 3-bedroom houses available for larger groups. All rooms at Palm Grove hotel come with kitchenettes, complete with stove tops, refrigerators, microwaves, pots, pans, and dishes to prepare your own meals.
