We didn't stay there this time but did last time we visited. We spent some time there this trip though with friends who were staying there. The rooms are lovely, and the outdoor showers are great, and because the weather is always warm it doesn't matter if it's not good weather while you are showering. The OTB restaurant is good, with delicious meals and cocktails. Recommend happy hour cocktails. Location is gorgeous at night with the sunset. Pool is cold compared to the sea but the sea is good to swim in. Friendly happy staff (which isn't the norm for a lot of places) who stop and have a laugh with you. You get the impression that Manuia treat their staff well. We are even planning on getting married here next June.

Had dinner at the on-site restaurant as we were staying elsewhere. Started with a few drinks on the beach in front of the resort. Good selection on the menu and the flavors were amazing. Was quite expensive however for the size of the meals. Waitress friendly and helpful. Nice spot to dine as a once off while in raro. Outdoor facilities looked good. Was able to view the sunset from here.

My husband and I stayed at Manuia for one night before we flew back home after staying in Aitutaki. We stayed in a premium garden room which was nice but overpriced for the money we paid. The room was large and roomy with a comfortable king size bed and overhead fan and airconditioning. The outdoor shower was fine for our short stay but I am not sure I would have liked only having an outdoor shower option if the weather wasn't great. As we were leaving early we arranged to have a breakfast basket made seeing we would miss out on the breakfast in the morning - it wasn't really worth it as it consisted of 2 dry muffins, one orange, 2 glasses of juice and 2 glasses of milk. We had dinner in the restaurant and we both enjoyed our meals. Overall our stay was fine but I would shop around before staying here again as I think you can find a lot better for your money.
