From the moment we got to this resort we were looked after and made to feel at home. After being offered an ice cold paw paw and mango drink, we were shown our bungalow and from that moment had uninterrupted views of the lagoon on our doorstep. Incredible hospitality with Mii our host on call for any questions we had,... More

What a wonderful trip we just had at the Royale Takitumu! We had our own little casita just steps away from the water. This special spot is on the south side of the island which is much quieter and the water deeper which makes the snorkeling more desirable. Mii (the manager) and Bill (the owner) were so nice and attentive... More

This review is a few months late, but I was just reminiscing through my mind the wonderful memories made here and couldn't help but write about it. My wife and I had an incredible experience at the Royale Takitumu on our honeymoon July 1-6, 2013. Mi'i was amazingly helpful with planning our excursions and activities. The staff from the top...

My wife and I were looked after very well by the staff at Royale Takitumu throughout our stay. We were there for about a week for our honeymoon. Our flight arrived late at night, despite this all was organised between the resort and the transfer company for us to settle into our room on arrival where a bottle of sparkling... More

Honeymooners who stayed at Royale Takitumu from the 24th to the 27th of March 2014. Would have stayed longer. We found that the lagoon here was better than the lagoon near our Aitutaki accommodation. We travelled around the area of Rarotonga and found that the lagoon outside of the Royale Takitumu was one of the best as the beach was... More

We stayed 11 - 16 March 2014 for our honeymoon. We enjoyed staying here because it is far less commercial and is fresh and newish and not tired like a lot of the other places we called into. If your after a Resort type place to stay this isn't it. We loved the fact the accommodation is separate villas rather... More

Friendly,attentive staff lead by Mii, the ultimate hostess-manager. We enjoyed the Petanque and Champagne get-together within hours of our arrival to meet the other guests but also appreciated the privacy our resort offered. All amenities ie. kayaks, beach lounge chairs,snorkel gear were readily available. Sea-view or beachfront villas would recommend if within your means but garden suite met our needs.... More

I can think of many superlatives to describe this place, but I think I’ll simply say Wonderful. The people are as nice as you would ever want to meet, the beach is 2nd to none, and the bungalows are very comfortable. If I had to give a negative, it would be I did not stay long enough (only 6 days).... More

We just got back from 12 nights in the Cook Islands, the first seven of which were spent at Royale Takitumu. We booked our trip through Costco (they were great), and because our flight from Los Angeles got in around 7 AM, I made sure we had an early check-in at Royale Takitumu, which was complimentary at 10 AM.
