My wife and I wanted a beautiful paradise holiday, no kids, no noise, no hassle, just relaxing in the sun, and that's exactly what we got at the Royale. The location is perfect. It's quiet but not too quiet. We thought we would mind the no bar/ no restaurant thing but it wasn't an issue. There's a shop and a... More

Your eyes can't quite believe it. That colour, that magnificent colour. The unmistakable Titikaveka lagoon, the ultimate aquamarine. And this is the ultimate spot by the ultimate aquamarine. Bill, Amber and Mii take a bow. This is a true pathway to paradise. Beautifully appointed villas by the sparkling sea. An ambience and atmosphere that is truly Rarotongan, a classily casual... More

Right on the beach, only a few coconut palms framing the view to the reef. There is no restaurant at this place, but the fridge had enough supplies for a couple of days breakfast. However, you can walk barefoot along the white coral beach to a few restaurants nearby. This is a perfect place for grown couples and honemooners that... More

We recently stayed at Royale Takitumu for a much needed holiday. The transfer from the airport was great and so was the breakfast starter pack! The villas give you privacy and quiet from the other resorts and tourists. The beach and ocean at the villas and all around Raro is outstanding and crystal clear, great for snorkelling, swimming, sunbathing,etc. However,... More
