Sea change was lovely, very peaceful. Push bikes available if you wish to ride to the local shops. Has a pool in your villa, is not heated so was cold when I went. Beach front villa was pretty. The internet and TV barely worked, though this is most of the country

We recently concluded our second visit to Sea Change Villas and Rarotonga. Once again---everything exceeded expectations. Sea Change is a private, secluded boutique resort with an absolutely fabulous staff. You are literally steps away from one of the world’s most stunning lagoons with warm, crystal clear water that provides ample opportunity to swim, snorkel, paddleboard, and kayak. Amazingly---it seemed like...

Further to my misplaced review last time. Sea Change is a marvellous and delightful place to stay. The villa was amazing, premier views, coral reef waves crash in the distance while gentle waves lap only metres from your villa. Great facilities and a private pool to cool off in. Relax in the privacy of your own villa and deck areas....

Our beach front villa (No.1) was fabulous. Very comfortable and well equipped. Just a few short steps from our deck to the water for some great snorkelling. Sea Change staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend Rarotonga as a destination and Sea Change as a great place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you’re looking for a romantic escape or a family break you’ll experience the perfect holiday in a setting that simply is breathtaking. Sea Change Villas is nestled discreetly on the southern side of Rarotonga, on its own secluded white sandy beach and turquoise clear blue lagoon which extends more than a hundred metres to the reef and then slopes steeply to deep water. The resort offers guests the choice of nine spacious one, two and three bedroom villas. The beachfront villas all enjoy stunning lagoon and outer reef views whilst the lagoon view and executive lagoon view villas are set amongst lush tropical gardens surrounded by breathtaking lagoon and reef views and majestic mountains. All villas offer a perfect blend of modern comfort and casually elegantly appointed Polynesian architectural accommodation. The villas feature a super bed with en-suited bathrooms. The bathrooms come well equipped with tiled showers large enough for two (double shower rose), Italian basin, toilet, a bidet is also included in the beachfront villas. Our two bedroom villas have en suites to both bedrooms. The lounge area has a complete home theatre system consisting of DVD, full surround sound stereo, flat screen TV and a selection of DVD movies available at no charge from reception. There is a fully self contained kitchen with all the amenities one would expect in this calibre of accommodation including dishwasher, gas hobs and convection/ microwave oven. Floors throughout are Italian porcelain, and all artwork is local and has been hand painted and commissioned exclusively for our villas. Each villa has its own completely private swimming pool. The decks on the lagoon side reach within a metre or so of the high tide mark, while the gardens and vegetation add to the wonderful tropical atmosphere of the executive lagoon view villas. Stand up paddle boards, kayaks, snorkelling gear, bicycles, private orientation for all our guests, private VIP car airport transfers, welcome flower ei’s, and a start up breakfasts are all provided on a complimentary basis. Fishing, paddling, sailing, diving, swimming, safari tours, cross island guided tours, off road quad biking and glass bottom boating are just some of the activities that abound in this tropical paradise. No matter how you choose to fill your days and nights one thing is certain, you’ll leave feeling rested and above all determined to return. ... more   less
