We spent our Honeymoon at Rumours Luxury Villas and loved every part of it!!! The staff was really nice, everything was clean and spacious. Great location for walking to nearby stores and markets. Loved the private pool in the Villa; used it a lot more than I expected. Overall,

This was our second visit to Rumours, only this time we took our friends from the UK as well. They were bowled over with the Platinum Villa. They said they felt like they were on a movie set, it was so awesome. For us, Rumours provided utter relaxation in a beautiful setting.

This is undoubtably one of the most beautiful places you could stay at on the Island. The villa we stayed in was extremely clean and very comfortable. The view was amazing. Belinda and Andrew are very kind and great hosts. Would highly recommend for a luxury getaway.

Hi..is the beach good for swimming and snorkeling?
Kia Orana Footscray from sunny Rarotonga thank you for your question; our beaches here in Rarotonga are super stunning and great for swimming and snorkeling. The beauty of the beaches here is they are so unpopulated with several great snorkeling fish reserves - we help navigate all our guests personally depending on their individual requests. if swimming and snorkeling are your priorities we would show you where to go; pointing out when the high tides are and direct you to the best tour operators (should you wish) - one company we use and recommend is ARIKI Adventures; they do amazing tours in/on and under the water. Please let me know if there is anything more specific you need at this point in time. All the best for now Belinda & Andrew (fellow aussies/melbournites now living the dream here in paradise)

Correct. They are down the road at the Spa. I stayed in a beach front villa at the main complex which I believe are a bit newer. Fantastic stay and I can't wait to get back.

We have an increasing amount of guests requesting access to a gym. We have listened to your needs and purchased a couple of annual passes to the local gym at Kent Hall which is located about 5 minutes from our Villas. These passes are available at checkin and complimentary.

Kia Orana Derek! Kia Orana Thank you so much for your enquiry; we would LOVE to have you and your family come stay with us here at Rumours but unfortunately we are an adults only retreat (guests must be over the age of 15) The delightful managers of Te Manava Luxury Villas here in the Cook Islands are right next door to us; they allow children of this age and I know they would be more than happy to look after you. All the best and thank you for contacting Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa Enjoy your holiday Belinda
