The Little Polynesian Resort, Raratonga Island

Situated directly on a white sandy beach and nestled within the foliage of palms and lush tropical greens, the intimate Cook Islands lodgings of traditional architecture and grounds have been designed to integrate harmoniously with nature's beauty and charm. In 2005, the Little Polynesian underwent extensive renovations to unveil re-creation to achieve new level of service and amenities

The Little Polynesian Resort has only ten beachside and four garden bungalows.Each of the Beach Ares comes with its own private gazebo and daybed overlooking the white sandy beach of Titikaveka. Inviting king size beds also face the lagoon while out-door showers, spa tubs under the stars, pre-stocked bar fridges and champagne on arrival can all be a part of the Little Polynesian experience. Each Pia Tiare is a spacious, studio size unit. Constructed as part of a duplex, they are also designed with unusually high roofing, a long but almost forgotten trademark of traditional Cook Island architecture. Like the Beach Ares, each is equipped with a spacious king size bed, outdoor shower and spa tub and bar fridge. These units also feature a 2 gas burner, microwave and toaster for additional cooking options.

There is a café with bar services, serving healthy salads and bistro style lunches as well as light evening meals.


  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
