What our guests say about their Moana Sands experience…
MOANA SANDS LAGOON RESORT (Adults Only 18+ years)
"Modern new rooms with nice pool and fantastic restaurant. Most of the hotel staff were good and accommodating, and has outdoor stuff to borrow for water activities. The restaurant - Laguna was the star of the show wth great meals - managed well by manager Mere ! Would stay here again."

LOVELY MODERN RESORT IN GREAT LOCATION
"We have just returned from 5 thoroughly relaxing days staying at this lovely resort.
It is modern, the rooms are large and airy and all have a lovely view of the pool and the lagoon beyond. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a restaurant on the property which is also great.
It is an adult only resort with only 24 rooms so it is quiet and peaceful."

MODERN, CLEAN, FANTASTIC STAFF
"Lovely place to stay. Very clean and modern. Leilani who checked us in/out was amazing. So friendly and helpful. Only scooter parking onsite, but across the road there is a huge area for car parking if you've hired a car. Our room 712 Beach Suite was huge! Quiet aircon, wonderful shower, spacious and comfy bed/pillows. Great view over the beach. Location is close to everything in either direction i.e cafes, restaurants, shops, Muri Markets etc. They had a great assortment of reef shoes, goggles, fins etc to go snorkelling. The entire complex is very well maintained from the impeccably kept gardens to the great pool area and contemporary styled rooms. If you want peace and quiet away from the maddening crowds and kids, then this is the place for you..."

MOANA SANDS BEACHFRONT HOTEL
Thank you Moana Sands Beachfront Hotel for giving our 1st Rarotonga experience an amazing week. Ryan, April and all the staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. The food was delicious, fresh and a good variety on offer. Lovely rooms, great to have air con in each room. You don’t need a pool when the beach is right at your door and the water was beautiful. Snorkelling gear available at no extra cost. Highly recommend this hotel

BEAUTIFUL BEACHFRONT LIVING
"I’ve never been one for big resorts, much preferring a more ‘boutique’ experience. The Moana Sands Hotel (one of its three beachfront properties) with around just 17 studios, was perfect for us. No need for a pool when the gorgeous lagoon is literally at your front door, along with a fleet of kayaks. The setting is just beautiful. While we were there, the lunchtime and evening restaurant had not yet re-opened - the last two years has been difficult for many of the Island’s establishments and staffing not always easy (there are alternatives not far away). The breakfasts were lovely though, and the staff low key and fabulous. Warmly recommended!"

WE WILL BE RETURNING!
"Excellent stay, large spacious clean well-equipped rooms. Views and location top notch, one of the best sandy beaches with incredible snorkeling and swimming. Staff are very approachable and helpful. Great cocktails and restaurant. Ticks all the boxes! Thank you for a memorable holiday."

MOANA SANDS BEACHFRONT VILLAS & APARTMENTS
FANTASTIC RESORT WITH THE BEST SNORKELLING SPOT
"We absolutely loved our stay at Moana Sands! The very spacious villa had everything we needed including bathrooms in both bedrooms and the beach right outside our room. This is hands down the best snorkelling on the island and filled our very relaxed days with fish, octopus, turtles, rays and moray eels!The pool is perfect to relax by and the cafe out front has amazing food. Rooms are cleaned and plenty of towels, snorkelling gear and kayaks available - an evening or morning sunrise/sunset kayak is a must.Would 100% stay again!"

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY AND FRIENDLY STAFF
"This was a great property to stay in while on holiday with my husband who was travelling to Raro for the first time. Bring my third trip a big part of my goal was to convince him that we should return to Raro regularly… it worked!! We had a fab & friendly welcome & all staff that we met throughout our stay were always helpful & friendly. The room was everything we needed & its location was FANTASTIC! Absolutely beautiful location with a pool a few steps away but also the beach literally within maybe 20 steps of our front door. We spent most days snorkeling literally right there. Having the amazing VAIMA’S just a stroll up the beach, Wigmores straight across the road & the Village Eatery right out front (with gluten free food!) was an absolute bonus!"
Thanks for an awesome holiday :)
