About Palm Grove Rarotonga

Located in the quiet village of Vaimaanga, the Palm Grove is agreeably close to the airport, the main town of Avarua – and the beach is next door anyway. As a full-service resort, it offers its guests a restaurant (the Yellow Hibiscus, we’ll come to that…), a swimming pool, an adjoining kiddie pool, a tour desk, parking services, rental vehicles and the very necessary bar. Its rooms and villas are comfortably fitted out with premium super-king beds, ensuite bathrooms, kitchen amenities, island-style furniture, air-conditioning, flatscreen TV and a room safe. Moving from the basic Garden and Beachfront Studio Rooms, travellers can choose bigger and more luxurious options like the 2/3-Bedroom Garden Bungalows and the 3-Bedroom Beachfront Villa.

Outside the Palm Grove accommodations, there’s plenty to see, do and experience in Rarotonga and Cook Islands. There is excellent swimming and snorkelling off the Titikaveka beach, but we recommend you sign up for diving charters and fishing trips to truly sample this island nation’s epic watersports. Then, for cultural aficionados, there’s nothing better than visiting a village like Te Vara Nui; you can ask the helpful tour desk to set you up a visit. Adrenaline junkies would love offroad jungle tours on a 4×4, parasailing, scuba-diving, aerial tours and so on. In short, there’s plenty of things to see, do, eat and experience while in Rarotonga and every day will be a practically guaranteed to be great!

Speaking of eating, the Palm Grove has a nice little restaurant and bar called the Yellow Hibiscus. It excels at farm-to-plate freshness; offering island-style and international cuisines to its guests. Pro Tip: It’s Sunday barbeque is something to pin down and wait, so don’t miss it!
