WHERE TWO HEARTS BEAT AS ONE …

At Sanctuary Rarotonga-on the beach-Adults-Only we offer you the services of your Personal Wedding Planner along with a range of Lagoon of Love Wedding Packages and Customised Options with which to tailor your dream ceremony to reflect your own personal style. 

Sanctuary Rarotonga-on the beach-Adults-Only is the ideal venue for Dream Weddings and Wedding Groups as it offers the island’s most comprehensive range of facilities and services, including having our family-friendly full-service sister resort, The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Lagoonarium, right next door. This is ideal for wedding groups where the couples stay at the Sanctuary and the families stay right next door at The Rarotongan. It's always best to keep wedding groups close together because wedding groups who stay together, play together - and that's half the fun of a destination wedding! (it's no fun trying to gather everyone together from all over the island, ask any bride who's had to try and do that!) 

Across the two resorts you have a wide range of venues to choose from for your Hens or Stag Party, your Wedding Ceremony, your Wedding Reception and your After-Party. 

This is Rarotonga’s leading wedding location as we are set on the island’s best beach, Aroa Beach, right on the shores of the Lagoon of Love, Aroa Lagoon.

Here on the southwest coast is the ideal location for your sunset beach wedding photos because the sun sets directly across Aroa Lagoon (the setting sun is not visible from the Muri side of the island, the sunrise side). Perfect!
