We stayed in villa 5, which is set back from the beach but there is still a view from the sitting/TV room. However, it did offer a bit more privacy by not sharing any interior walls with other villas.
They welcomed us with leis at the airport. A few snacks were available in the villa upon arrival along with champagne, beer, soda and milk the fridge. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies as well as oil, salt and pepper for cooking. The breakfast is substantial. They were able to easily accommodate our dietary restrictions (vegan).
The villa itself is gorgeous with a private pool. The beds are very comfortable. The staff is so friendly and helpful and assisted with all of our reservations as well as renting e-bikes for our week-long stay.
We liked the location. There are several restaurants nearby and we were able to bike to the rest of the island as desired. We also went to the spa twice. The massages were amazing.
Rumours villas are beyond luxurious and AMAZING. My husband and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect honeymoon and that’s because of Carol, Grant and the rest of the team at Rumours.
These villas are exceptional, first class, 5 star villas.
Aside from the beautiful beach and exquisite villas, the best aspect of this place is by far the staff. From the moment we landed at the airport, they made us feel at home from start to finish. We had breakfast delivered every morning and our room was kept spotless throughout our stay. Carol was so kind and helpful with booking excursions and just answering any questions we had pertaining to the island for us throughout our stay. They’ve mastered the fine art of anticipating your wishes before you even know you have them, all without being obtrusive. If you are traveling to Rarotonga this is the place to stay!! Rumours Villas are by far the most beautiful place to stay on all of Rarotonga and you will be treated like royalty.
