At Castaway Resort we pride ourselves on being a small, quiet and secluded boutique resort. With only a small variety of rooms on-site to choose from, Castaway has the perfect balance of privacy and freedom. Set in the enchanting sunset village of Arorangi, Castaway is home to some of the islands most stunning sunsets and with Wilson’s Beach Bar situated right on the beach, enjoy a cocktail or romantic dinner in front of the setting sun.
Castaway Resort is a self catering adults-only resort for people aged 16 years and above. We offer accommodation at cost effective rates for all types of travellers. All our rooms on-site are appropriately furnished to suit all basic needs and all exterior surroundings at the resort contribute to capturing that fresh, tropical, beachy feeling that is essential to every holiday experience in Rarotonga.
We have a wide range of things to see and experience at Castaway, some of which are exclusive to Castaway Resort only. Watch the local people of Rarotonga fish in the lagoon or keep an eye out for humpback whales passing by during the months of July to November. Should you be lucky enough to come across one of these majestic creatures playing just beyond the reef, feel more than welcome to ring Wilson’s Whale Bell up on our viewing deck. Swimming or snorkelling at the beach are very popular activities with our guests as well as kayaking toward the reef. Try one of our Cuban Havana Cigars or our signature cocktails “The Big Kahuna” both of which are only available at Castaway.
