    Nice Hotel close to the beach

    A nice hotel in a good location . Go for a room with a full sea view, as ours had a partial view - which we knew - however we should not of compromised. The hotel location is on the east side of the island and the wind was rather persistent so unfortunately the beach had limited use.

    Great location of famous Muri Lagoon

    We found that our stay on Rarotonga in the Cook Isles was a perfect location for our relatively short stay of nine days. The locals are so "laid back" and friendly. Our fellow tourists were mainly enjoying their stay as we were. No doubt, we will one day return and again enjoy the experience.

    Fantastic Experience

    We stayed here for our Honeymoon. Belinda, Andrew & their staff were absolutely fantastic. We felt they went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They organised a rental car & sightseeing for us. Transfers included, even though we arrived in the middle of the night & completed check in, in the car on the way. The Villa was fantastic, clean & well maintained. The views were also fantastic. We loved that it was beachfront, but high enough up that it was very private. Breakfast was delivered daily (we chose the self cook option) and the food was fresh & delicious.

    Amazing!

    We spent 4 nights at Rumours in September 2017. Belinda and Andrew were wonderful hosts and so helpful. We stayed in Villa 1, and although you could not see the beach from our room, that didn't spoil our enjoyment at all. The 2-bed Villa was very spacious and immaculately furnished. As other reviewers have noted, the beach is a little rocky, and not easy to swim right off the shore from the Villa. However, we knew this before we booked. I would not hesitate in recommending Rumours for anyone wanting a luxury, and very private 2-bed location in Rarotonga.

    Amazing villas

    A home away from home, with all creature comforts but also sophisticated design and beautiful scenery. The private pool was gorgeous, very private setting and the staff and service couldn't be faulted.

    Lovely getaway location

    Rumours Resort and Spa was an excellent place to stay for a little getaway. Everything that you could possibly need was provided. Lovely people with excellent facilities and beautiful villas in the best location in Rarotonga, the beautiful Muri Beach. Breakfast was delivered to our villa daily with amazing fresh eggs and bacon (self cook options) and delicious fruit smoothies. Although we struck the worst weather Rarotonga had had in 40 years (!) we still enjoyed our time at Rumours, and will need to go back to make the most of the beautiful lagoon next time.

    Room was amazing. Fantastic location

    We found the resort fantastic. Great location, breakfast was beautiful, you have to try the smoothy. .. Yum yum. We loved the supplied kyayk. After our beautiful breakfast, we paddeled out to the coral and snorkeled looking at the fish and coral in the crystal clear water. Our long lunch was a leasurly strole up the beach to Nautalus who supplied a fantastic range of gluten and dairy free food, all of which was absolutely beautiful. The afternoon was a nap, a movie from the huge range supplied at rumours or another swim( beach, pool or spa). Dinner was again a strole up the beach to Nautalus and home by torch to spot the breach critters. Cooking was available in the well supplied kitchen, but why cook when your on holidays. Rumours staff was fantastic. Totally relaxing and a great getaway.
