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. It was a lovely eclectic mix of Kiwis, Australians, and a handful of... More

We were planning a relaxed 10 day holiday to escape Melbourne Winter. Our stay at Royale Takitumu exceeded our expectations so much so that we are planning a return holiday next year. It ticked all the boxes in relation to lay out of the facility, closeness of access to beach/lagoon, quality of accommodation , limited numbers of guests, quality of... More

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. The rooms are big, and clean, with a nice size kitchen. The beach was pristine and empty. We would absolutely go back here. The only downside is there is no... More

We spent a week at Royale Takitumu and wished we could have stayed much longer. We had been looking for a place where we could totally chill and this was it - the little cottage opening straight onto the beautiful beach and views of the lagoon and the ocean beyond. The beach was so peaceful with hardly another person around.... More

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.

Royale Takitumu far exceeded my expectations. The Honeymoon cottages were comfy cozy and right on the beach. It was awesome sitting on the front porch with my morning coffee gazing at the turquoise blue water.

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

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
