The western side of Rarotonga holds a secret – the spectacular adults-only Crown Beach Resort & Spa, ideally positioned to catch the gorgeous sunset scenery every night. This sun-soaked beachfront escape is set within five acres of gardens and offers everything you could need for an indulgent island retreat. Take a dip in the waterfall swimming pool, and enjoy the convenience of a supermarket, general store, bakery and liquor store just across the road. When hunger strikes, pull up a chair at Ocean's Restaurant, a waterfront venue serving up fresh local seafood, or opt for succulent meat cuts and local fish char-grilled to perfection at Flambé. At the outdoor bar, order a cocktail or a flute of bubbly and watch a spectacular sunset dip below the horizon.
