We absolutely loved staying at Rumours and did not want to leave! The villa was gorgeous with the most incredible views of the sea and steps leading right down onto a lovely beach. It really did feel like paradise, just so amazing and relaxing. We couldn't have asked for better hosts: Belinda and Andrew were so hospitable and welcoming. Definitely... More

Lovely beach front villa in fabulous setting. Management went out of its way to help make our stay great. Lovely private pool & spa. Breakfast delivered every morning was good quality and more than we could eat but set us up for the day. Some good restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance. Also, the couples romance massage at the... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Rumours for 4 nights in February and fell in love with it the moment we walked through the entrance to our villa and saw our private pool area. By the time we reached the balcony with steps directly down onto the perfect beach, we knew we were in for a fantastic time! We loved... More

We booked the beachside villa for our honeymoon for 7 nights and it was even better than the pictures suggested. Great gardens and pool are and only 30m from the water on lovely muri beach. The weather was average on our trip but that made us appreciate the room even more, the tv's are loaded with things to watch and... More

This is by far the most luxurious beachside villa we have ever stayed in. We started off with three nights in one of the villas just behind the beachside villas. Very nice. Lovely pool. Two bedrooms and bathrooms (that hadn't quite hit us till we arrived). One of the beds is open to the villa but can be shut off... More

My husband and I have just spent 8 nights at Rumours. Wow – what a place to unwind, relax and enjoy celebrity style surroundings and villas to die for. We were in the Platinum villa and even just the Waterfalls flowing over the rocks into the pool were enough to take your mind off any issues you left at home,... More

Kia Orana Michelle, It was lovely having you to stay at Rumours - though the weather wasn't the kindest for your stay for the last couple of days was it. However we always find that the guests are happy to enjoy all their villa has to offer when weather is a bit inclement, with the movies, spa pool, swimming pool... More

Raratonga is stunning, the only downfall was that we didn't want to leave our perfectly pointed villa! Private pool, spa and all the details within the villa's were breathtaking. The Villa management team were so thoughtful right through to a later check out due to a late night flight, which really made every aspect of our stay faultless!

Kia Orana Cherie thank you for your lovely review You are spot on in your observation 'the only downside is trying to drag yourself away from your STUNNING Villas ' - this is a comment we hear over and over and a reason why we get so many guests returning. Full credit goes to the visionary owners who built an... More

My husband and I just spent 6 nights at Rumours - and it was amazing! We stayed in a beach front villa which was beautiful and private. The staff was lovely and respectful of privacy. The breakfast delivery was excellent - definitely have a breakfast smoothie! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Kia Orana Julia and A. Thank you so much for this review. You must have only just got home, so we're even more appreciative that you took the time so quickly after your visit to do this. We do hope you had a good trip back to NY. It would have been a long one and to hear that you... More

Thanks Andrew and Belinda for an amazing stay at Rumours. Our villa was just incredible and you were wonderful hosts. The private courtyard with its own spa pool and plunge pool were just such a treat, as was the beachfront position and the beautiful decor. Miss it so much!
