Couldnt have asked for a more private location with the most beautiful beach on the Island, perfect snorkelling. We had Villa 2 beachfront, it had all the nessesities you need kitchen microwave etc, waking up jn the morning with the beachfront views and only steps away from the water. . .priceless. If privacy is what your looking for this is... More

Staff are brilliant, position is great. We at most, saw 4 people on the beach. You can see sunsets from the beach. This was our 2nd trip to Raro, and it was Kim Mildon's (Travel Broker at Travel Managers) suggestion that we stay at RT. Absolutely brilliant time, hospitality, etc. 11/10. Keep up the good work.

We keep coming back, not for one reason but many. Super quiet, absolute beachfront, best beach on Rarotonga, comfortable individual villas, great pool, super BBQ to do a grill supper, Salvador the cat, Mi'i the manager, not forgetting the weekly world pétanque championship playoffs. Love this place.

We opted to stay here for the first part of our honeymoon. Upon arrival, Mi'i welcomed us with fresh juice and a brief orientation and tour of the property. Beautifully landscaped, we felt like we'd entered the garden of Eden. Our bungalow was immaculately clean and situated on the edge of the property, right by the beach. The view was... More

30th wedding anniversary and this place was really special. We chose a VIP villa (villa 4) and were delighted with the room, the service and the associated support equipment (snorkels, kayaks etc). Rooms and furniture were very comfortable and the self catering was beneficial for the 1 meal we had in the villa. Other meals were an easy walk to... More

We stayed at the Takitumu 12 months ago and it was fantastic. The villas are well designed, comfortable and blend in perfectly with the surrounding grounds. The quality of the beach and snorkelling are unsurpassable where very few places could match, and the lagoon would even change to different shades of blue and green depending on the time of day....

We have recently stayed at the Royal Takitumu villas in Rarotonga. The position on the southern side of the island overlooking the logon is beautiful.
