My wife and I just stayed at Te Vakaroa for our honeymoon, and had a great time. We received a number of awesome amenities, including, a complimentary pick-up from the airport, a free bottle of sparkling wine, free paddleboarding vouchers for the neighboring sports rental shop, a free two-day car rental, his and her massages, and overall great service.

This place is just stunning!!!...and certainly has the WOW factor. It is classy, sophisticated, yet at the same time totally easy and relaxed. There are 2 types of accommodation - 2 bedroom villas upstairs, and 1 bedroom villas downstairs. Both these options look onto a beautiful infinity pool, which in turn flows to the beautiful Muri beach and lagoon. We... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with our 2 teenage kids. The villa was beautifully decorated and appointed with every amenity necessary for a comfortable stay. We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer and air conditioning. The deck and outdoor furniture was fantastic. It was like having a second lounge outside. With only 5 other villas, the... More

We stayed at Te Vakaroa Villas in November 2013 for our honeymoon. Te Vakaroa Villas are set amongst the most beautiful beaches, restaurants, scenery and people in the world. Very clean, sophisticated and surrounded by lush gardens. We would highly recommend TV Vakaroa villas to anyone looking for a romantic, clean and safe location.

Unfortunately we didn't stay at this hotel but we were taken through by the owner who is a expat Kiwi. The property is right on Muri Lagoon and is right next door to restaurants and cafes. The rooms are really stunning and fully self contained. Everything seems to be of the best quality with no expense spared on bedding and... More

This is our third stay at Te Vakaroa Villas in the heart of Muri where everything is just a hop step and jump away.

The villa and surrounds are beautiful, and we really did love our time spent in the cook islands. However, after seeing such fantastic reviews on trip advisor, we were very disappointed with the staff at this 5 star resort. The maids and ground crew were lovely and working hard. However, the receptionist was very unwelcoming and seemed rather bitter. A... More

Kia Orana, The directors of Te Vakaroa are deeply concerned about the treatment you received as one of our guests. We were aware that our front office manager has been under some stress recently and have offered her time off and shorter hours to assist in recovery, that aside there is no excuse for the poor manners shown.

A wonderful villa (No 1) on the ground floor. Amazing views from the villa, across the small but beautifully maintained garden, over the infinity pool to the beach and lagoon beyond. The distant sound of waves crashing on the reef creates a constant (but fairly quiet) booming sound, which we found quite soporific. The Sails restaurant next door does good... More
