We had the pleasure of spending 14 days at Royale Takitumu this past January and absolutely loved it. We were met by Mii when we arrived early Sunday morning and she made us feel right at home. We stayed in a beach front villa that was spacious, bright and well thought out. The

Well to start with was Richard M from Sydney staying here because there is nothing about his report that we recognise. Perhaps he belongs to the group of sad people that try to get a discount. To facts, we were upgraded to a sea front cabin that was both spacious clean and airy

Kia Orana, thank you so much for your kind words. Mii, our local Guest Relations Manager will not mind the spelling mistake. She simply wears a very special and beautiful name!

We hope that your will find your way back to our slice of heaven one day! Thanks again for taking the time to share a review. In the name of the whole team at Royale Takitumu. Tim Meyer Manager

Kia Orana, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with the Trip Advisor community. Titikaveka has been voted into the Top 10 beaches in the South Pacific! The snorkeling really is outstanding and your complimentary snorkeling gear makes exploring the underwater wonders even more convenient. Sorry, to hear that the neighbors were noisy we will address the issue with the landlords. Thank you again for your review and we hope to be able to welcome you again sometime soon! For the team at Royale Takitumu. Tim Meyer Manager

I have been really lucky to have been to Royale Takitumu twice, and each time it was a great experience. First, the place is immaculately cared for and quite sharp. The accommodations were very nice and a great respite when the sun is a bit too hot or when you head to bed in

Kia Orana Aaron, thank you for sharing your recent experiences at Royale Takitumu on Trip Advisor! In addition to the above named guest services we have introduced e-bikes and SUPs. The e-bikes give our guests the freedom to explore the island at their own pace and there is nothing more relaxing than being out on the lagoon with a SUP! We hope to be welcoming you back sometime soon to experience the new additions yourself! Thanks again! Tim Meyer Manager

Incredibly beautiful location with the blue lagoon, palm trees and white sand beaches that had nobody on it except us most of the time. Friendly staff and all the facilities in the rooms that we needed. Would highly recommend for couples looking for a quiet and romantic getaway.

Is this an adults only resort? Thank you!
It is not set up for children, but a teenager was there with family when we stayed. Other hotels are better equipped for families with young children.

Yes you can swim directly in front of the Villas, but I did not find it that interesting. A few fish and coral that has been bleached by the weather. But I would still stay there.

"You won’t go wrong with any villa but the beach front villas are 20 steps closer to the beach."
"Request a room on the reception side of the property, closest to the beach"
"There are Beachfront Huts, with 4-5 right along the beach."
"Almost all rooms have a view of the beach."
"No need to splurge on the ocean front villa as all villas are steps away from the beach."
