The faint sound of waves crashing on the reef, the whisper of palms swaying in the breeze, the sparkle of the water in the lagoon-style pool…
Kia Orana and welcome to just a few of the joys of staying at Arcadia Retreat.

Kia Orana and welcome to your island home away from home


to hear about our special offers...

A chance to unwind and immerse yourself in the tranquility of island life.
This is the essence and spirit of Arcadia Retreat.

Our small piece of paradise embodies the definition
of Arcadia – “an unspoiled wilderness of simple, quiet pleasure”.

We invite you to join us on the picturesque sunset side of Rarotonga in one of our three stylishly appointed holiday homes set in large tropical gardens with a spectacular shared pool and breathtaking Arorangi beach just minutes away.






Accommodation Rarotonga at its finest

Each beautiful home evokes a feeling of sophisticated ease and refined Polynesian elegance. All three are equipped with a full range of amenities to ensure your stay exceeds all expectations and even beckons you back, time and again.

With their delightfully individual characters Ta’i, Rua and Toru embody the essence of laid-back island life.


Ta’i is the top floor of our 2 storey colonial style home (with 2 x king bedrooms, 1 with direct access
to the balcony), featuring stunning views over the pool, tropical gardens and nearby Mt Raemaru.

Rua is the ground floor of our 2 storey colonial style home with a private garden setting, 2 double
bedrooms and its own private covered veranda/terrace.

Toru is our stand alone large adobe style bungalow home, with its own covered outdoor bath and
rain shower, 2 double bedrooms, fully equipped modern kitchen with spacious dining/living area,
and a huge covered veranda, perfect for outdoor dining.





Fantastic Spot
“We spent 6 days in Rarotonga and Arcadia was exactly what we needed. The relaxed atmosphere and great location meant we were close to the beach but had the luxury of not being in a busy resort. We stayed in Ta’i and had everything we needed for our stay. The onsite team were also very helpful – would absolutely go back!”

Slice of heaven in the paradise that is Rarotonga
“We are returning guests to Arcadia Retreat as it is the best place we have found after a few visits to Rarotonga. Both visits we have stayed in Villa Rua. We have viewed Villa Ta’i and Villa Toru as well and they are equally amazing. This beautiful retreat is not beachside, which makes it much more private, serene and quiet from so many other properties on Rarotonga. The BBQ/pool area is huge for only three Villas so again privacy and serenity is not compromised……

Didn’t want to leave…
“If you are not into resorts & prefer the relaxed vibes of self-contained accommodation slightly off the beaten track, Arcadia is an amazingly chill Retreat & a home away from home – our family loved it. We stayed in Toru, and adored the island style, outdoor shower room, and the huge covered deck with the pool outlook. It is the perfect place to relax & enjoy the weather, a book, & the pool in the downtime between planned activities. We could not recommend it enough.”
