Fantastic service from Amber and her team starting from complimentary shuttle upgrade from airport with champagne, through orientation of the Villas and surrounds over coffee and muffins and efficient friendly service throughout the stay. Walk a few paces from the Villa to pristine white sandy beach and amazing snorkelling at the door. The snorkelling equipment was good quality and always... More

From the moment you arrive to Royale Takitumu, you will be thoroughly entranced by the quality, the beautiful ocean views and most important, the people. First let me speak of the people, which have been highly regarded by most reviewers on TA and rightfully so. They greet you with genuine warmth and make you feel like family from the moment... More

From the time we arrived we felt welcome. The staff were extremely helpful explained all the facilities. Don't count on great tv or radio, reception not too good, but who wants to watch tv on holidays. Ideal spot for a total relaxing holiday. Not crowded and we sometimes had the beach in front of the hotel to ourselves. Snorkeling was... More

Completely fantastic. It is so great to go to a paradise that is not overrun by massive resorts. This was a villa resort (even the garden studios where really villas) with no kids and only about 12 or 15 villas so super private. Staff were excellent, place was clean, showers had good pressure and all the water is filtered straight... More

My wife and I stayed on Rarotonga for three nights in March. Our long flight arrived very early in the morning and the first place we drove to was Royale Takitumu. Mii greeted us with a smile and a drink and made us feel at home from the instant we arrived. The grounds are beautiful and constantly maintained. Plenty of... More

We recently stayed for five nights. We were so relieved when our driver pulled into the driveway because most of the places we had passed on the way from the airport looked terrible! Royale T was clean, the grounds are well maintained, with a very cute pond with goldfish and koi. There was a couple of stairs into the reception... More
