I asked my husband where he wanted to go for his 70th birthday and when he said “the Cook Islands” I said “Where the heck is that”. I looked on the Costco travel website and found the Cook Islands vacation. We live near Los Angeles and I saw there was a direct flight to Rarotonga. A good omen. I haven’t... More

We just returned from a 2 weeks vacation at the Rarotonga island. We stayed our entire time at the unit #1 beach front villa at the Royale Takitumu and this is the best vacation we ever had. The resort only has 10 villas and it's so beautiful design (see pictures) with Jim the ground keeper keeps the place so clean.... More

This is a quiet place - no restaurants etc. but right on the beach. Could lie in bed and watch the ocean. Friendly hosts, and handy to Muri - walk is about half an hour. Beach is very nice at this part of the island.

We recently stayed for seven nights at Royale Takitumu and both wish it could have been for longer. We booked our holiday in May so had a long wait for our visit.

This is a delightful place to stay if you are looking for under stated peace and quiet. Mii in the front office works tirelessly to create a relaxed and friendly ambience and the weekly coffee morning worked a treat to establish friendships amongst the 20 guests staying.

We booked at this resort through Costco, and it was a great choice. The service and amenities are fabulous. Mii in the front office was a pleasure to interact with.

We spent a week at Royale Takitumu and wished we could have stayed much longer.

Just back from our 2nd stay at Royale Takitumu. Still fabulous and Mii takes great care of us. We brought friends this time and had side by side Honeymoon Beachfront villas. Perfect. A perfect, white sand beach & fabulous aqua blue waters just steps from your villa. A great little gem.
