Pool and lagoon.
Avana Waterfront Apartments is a comfortable hideaway, located on the very edge of stunning Avana Lagoon on Rarotonga's east coast. Avana Lagoon was chosen, centuries ago, as the perfect sheltered mooring for the huge ocean-going Polynesians voyaging canoes which used the island of Rarotonga as a long term staging post.
There are six two level apartments and four studio apartments each with complete privacy, unrivalled views of the lagoon, ocean and the uninhabited islets opposite.
Each 2 or 3 bedroom apartment of well over 1000 square feet (100 square metres), offers either two or three bedrooms (one being air conditioned), one and a half or two and a half bathrooms, a huge dining/lounge area, laundry and kitchen, viewing and relaxing decks, verandas and a private courtyard too.
The modern studio apartments are roomy, air-conditioned and suitable for do-it-yourself romantics.
The spacious grounds are palm shaded, with abundant tropical frangipani, bougainvillea and hibiscus gardens, hedges, lawns and sandy sunbathing areas.
Our swimming pool is surrounded by hardwood timber decks and thatched shade and barbecue huts.
Our private jetty, stretching from the shore into the lagoon, is a perfect place for fishing, swimming, snorkelling, sundown cocktails or a sunrise cup of fresh local roasted coffee.
Studios sleep up to three.
Two bedrooms sleep up to five.
Three bedrooms sleep up to six.
