My partner and I stayed in Villa 3 (Beachfront Platinum Villa) for 10 nights from 20 March through to 29 March. The Villa is front on to the beach and has its own pool and spa. There is nothing quite like sitting on the deck looking out onto the lagoon or late at night gazing at the star studded sky... More

Kia Orana friends. So pleased you enjoyed your time at Rumours as 10 days in the one place can be really long if it's not to your liking and home can seem a better alternative. The movie room was questioned when Rumours was being built as being "unnecessary" in a tropical beachfront location, but as you say, when the weather... More

We didn't stay here so I'm just reviewing the Spa side of the Business. Not sure exactly what day somewhere between 13-16 March at mid afternoon. We came to Raro on honeymoon and I desperately wanted to get a massage but I was a bit indecisive about who to have it with. Drove past Rumours a few times and it... More

Absolutely amazing facility - it really was luxury as the title suggests. We stayed in a beach front bungalow villa for a wedding anniversary- equipped with a private spa (over looking the beach), a fully private pool and BBQ area. The kitchen was modern, the bed was comfortable and in room water feature was a nice touch. On the one... More

It's like nothing we have ever experienced before- absolute paradise on earth! The moment my husband and I arrived to Rarotonga we were greeted by a friendly face to pick us up from the airport from a very late flight. We were taken to our villa and from the moment we stepped into villa 4 we gasped with absolute delight!... More

Also pleased that you enjoyed your time in the spa. I'm not... More
