Our first trip to Rarotonga couldn't have been better and we would never stay anywhere else. Mi'i and her lovely team make you feel like part of their family and made island life for us perfect! From the first night where we were collected from the airport and greeted with champagne, taken to a beautiful restaurant where our table was... More

Just returned from Royale Takitumu and I can only describe it as a "jewel of the island". It was our 1st time to the Cooks and it is truly a beautiful place to stay/visit.

We stayed for a week at this resort and it was very relaxing. The staff are very accommodating and beyond friendly. You will feel at home from day one. The snorkeling is excellent right in front of the resort. Don't miss lunch at The Mooring. Bring bug spray for your ankles but only in the evenings while anywhere on the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Takitumu Villas for 6 days in January. This was our second trip to the Cooks and our first time staying here.

Royale Takitumu was an excellent choice. The villas provided a home away from home feel for the four nights my two daughters (25, 27) and I stayed.The location was great and falling asleep while hearing the waves crash against the reef was re living childhood memories. The hotel is ideally situated with the bus stop as you walk out onto... More

The Royale Takitumu was everything we hoped for and more! As first time visitors to Rarotonga (Sept/Oct 2014), we wanted a special, intimate place to stay, and somewhere it would be easy to find out what to do. The villa was fabulous, and we actually enjoyed not being right on the beachfront as it was only about 8 more steps,... More

As first time international travelers, we were in amazed with Rarotonga and the Cook Islands. Truly a tropical paradise! The Royale Takitumu, our beautiful hostess, Mii, and all of the resort staff, were equally amazing! The resort setting is beautiful and the accomodations are great! The place is not the least bit 'touristy' and we found it incredibly relaxing. The... More
