Probably the most luxurious villas on the island right on the beach. Fully equipped with everything from kayaks to espresso maker. Complimentary sparkling wine and beer in the fridge and more snacks than I could consume on my stay.
What really made Rumours special was the personalized attention from management and staff from the time I made my reservation until the end of my stay. It felt like I was staying with friends, only possible at a place with few units. It is not just that they know your name - they each tell you theirs. As a first time visitor at peak season it was particularly helpful that they proactively reached out after I reserved to suggest and advise on booking activities which were fully sold out by the time I arrived.
Just a fabulous few days - best ever.

Myself and two teenage children stayed at the Rarotongan for ten days in July 2017. We stayed in a beachfront room, number 301. We had a fantastic stay in Rarotonga and was extremely pleased with the resort. It is well appointed, quiet, very clean and tidy, and had lots going on every day. The staff were friendly and approachable (for the vast majority of encounters) and they supplied everything that we requested with good grace. The grounds are beautifully manicured. It's a pretty place!!!
The area is a truly amazing part of a truly amazing island. In a place where almost everywhere you look you are amidst beauty and idealised tropical splendour, this resort is situated on the best bit. The beach is perfect - white sand, turquoise water and shady palms. There is easy access to the rest of the island, both with the local buses (which literally stop in the forecourt of the resort), and with a reputable car hire place 30 seconds walk away.
The room was clean and tidy, with extremely fresh and white linen (they even left several sets of extra towels for the course of the 10 days) and we received more cleaning services than we actually needed. The vast majority of the time we experienced quick, efficient and effective service.
The notable exception (unsurprisingly, when reading the other reviews) was with the food and wait service. This is not because the staff were in any way tardy, just that there needed to be more of them.
We will be back!!!!

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa and we have nothing but positive things to say. The location was incredible and having our own beachfront bungalow was the perfect way to enjoy the breathtaking views. The food at the main restaurant was fantastic and I can not say enough wonderful things about all of the staff. Thank you for an incredible stay!

Quiet getaway. Each room has a private pool, as well as secluded access to the beach on the lagoon, with canoes. The villa is a delightful, open, airy design with lots of window. Staff are lovely, friendly and will arrange anything that's possible on the island for their guests.
