Fantastic, a Unreal experience: How can I find enough superlatives to say how much we enjoyed our week at Rumours. Private yet on the sand with the sparkling blue waters at your door. So spacious its a home away from home, all the little extra touches. My own pool with a waterfall. Wow. Lovely breakfast basket delivered each morning ,... More

We recently stayed in August with our friends. What an amazing piece of paradise. From the time we were collected at the airport with beautiful fresh flower Lei until the time we left (sadly) 6 days later - it was amazing!! The Villas were spotlessly clean, had amazing beds and had everything you could think of in the kitchens. Breakfast... More

We stayed in a beachfront villa for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and knew straight away we'd struck gold! Can't recommend these villas highly enough, and our hosts Andy and Belinda were outstanding. Looking forward to going back before too long :)

Thank you Rumours for the great stay. The staff are super friendly and approachable. Rooms are super clean and the breakfast ingredients we cooked up each morning was absolutely delicious. The kayaks are free and the photos are a short paddle away from Rumours doorstep. Would 100% recommend this place to families or couples.

Had a 60 min deep tissue massage which was $130. Lovely staff and calming environment. The massage was amazing. Only complaint is I didn't want it to end! Prices are slightly expensive but worth it for a special pamper day.

My husband and I did a lot of research before picking a honeymoon spot, we decided on Rarotonga, Cook Islands in the end. It seems very relaxing and not as populated with tourists as a lot of other honeymoon destinations. We then started looking for accomodations and came upon Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa. Rumours is a little pricey but... More

I stayed at the Rumours with my husband for 4 nights. This was our first accommodation on the Cook Islands. We were coming straight from Europe with 12 hours time difference. To have a Villa instead of an hotel room helped us a lot to slowly adapt to the time zone. For instance, we got breakfast delivered the day before,... More

Q. Does the Villa have a blender so I can make my oat and banana pancakes? A. No blenders in the Villas but I do have one I’m happy to lend – no problems – I will be sure to have it in your Villa for your arrival. Would you like me to pre-purchase your ingredients for your pancakes? This... More
