“Fantastic Accommodation in Dream Loacation”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We started off looking for a resort for a school holiday break in the pacific. But we spotted the Blue Lagoon Villas and they looked luxurious and in a great location. And so much better than being tied into a single resort. We wanted a spot that would suit everyone.

And this is it.

Luxurious self-care accommodation. Right on the beach. I mean RIGHT on the beach. Sleeping with the blinds open watching the moon, the sunrise (ok the kids don't get that but tough). It is like living in a swanky downtown apartment (did I mention it is on the beach). You can walk to the end of the driveway for cafe's and meal options.

You get a welcome basket which is a great idea - a few breakfasts and lunches to let you settle in.

The self-care means you can bring in or buy locally and look after yourself. Or just as easy head along to the Muri night market which runs 3-4 nights a week and get a cheap local meal.

The facilities are perfect, an infinity pool, spa and day beds to share amongst the four villas. We had them to ourselves most of the time. Or you can laze on one of your two decks and watch the rest of the world pass.

Great snorkeling and swimming at you doorstep and if you want to walk down the beach it can get even better. Plenty of resorts to visit to satisfy you afternoon cocktail needs. And there is a brewery just two kilometers down the road!

The service was faultless, from pickup, greeting to cleaning. As good as any 5 star resort.

It was our pleasure to have you and your daughters stay with us.
You are right, our location is perfect and we have the best of both worlds….inside the grounds and villas is a peaceful private sanctuary…yet step outside the gates, and it’s an easy stroll to the cafes, shops, restaurants and activities.
Please come and visit us again, as we would love to see you back here!

Take care

“Exceptional villas with exceptional management - fabulous holiday, and the only place you should stay!”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fabulous Easter school holiday getaway for a families first experience of Rarotonga. From airport pick up to drop off, the service was amazing, friendly, efficient, luxurious and catered for your every need. Entering the villas it was great to see that the pictures you see online are exactly what you get.. yes it really is that good!The villas are perfectly situated right on muri beach lagoon and exceedingly well thought out to capture the beautiful views day or night.The villa was spotlessly clean, comfortable and provided everything you needed. Loved relaxing around the pool & spa and strolling up the road to get coffee. Robyn (manager) is truly amazing, helpful and especially thoughtful when our daughter was really sick with glandular fever & strep throat and confined to the villa.
Would definitely recommend the villas to everyone, loved the place, location, the sense of peace & relaxation and the care Robyn takes to ensure you enjoy your stay.

It was such a shame your daughter was unwell and unable to enjoy much of her holiday!!
Being sick while away from home is not nice, but with the villas being quiet and peaceful, she was at least able to get some much needed rest.
I very much enjoyed chatting to you all about what Rarotonga has to offer and was pleased that despite one daughter not able to join in, you did still experience some of the activities and some sunshine!
Muri is a magical place and nothing can quite beat lying in those daybeds or in the pool, lazily watching the aquatic action in the lagoon!
We are looking forward to your next visit…either as a family again, or maybe a romantic getaway for the 2 of you! See you soon.
Take care

“Paradise Perfection”
Reviewed May 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Apologies in advance for using words like "paradise, awesome, beautiful, perfection, peaceful, exceptional" BUT those words express how I feel about staying at the Crystal Blue Lagoon villas.

In May, my parents and partner stayed at the Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas. The whole stay was exceptional and probably the best accommodation I've ever stayed in. The units were modern, fresh and designed to perfection. Robyn, our wonderful hostess, was wonderful and warm. She upgraded our room to a seaview and WOW...it was stunning. The lovely Robyn also provided us a great food hamper, fruits and veggies from the Island and some complimentary kayak rentals. Thanks to that I was able to convince my parents to go kayaking for the first time; they loved it!

The kitchen was fully modern with a much loved (by my partner) Espresso machine. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was a dream to use. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. Everything was so well planned and thought out. The pool patio was gorgeous, people walked up from the beach to take photos of the idyllic setting. The spa pool was a great touch, to relax even more in after a heavy day of relaxing.

Muri Beach is a perfect location for those who love to kayak, paddleboard, and kite surf. We used the facilities there to fullest. It isn't the best snorkeling beach BUT that is only ten minutes down the road. My partner and I did a bit of diving and that was also a great time.

Anyway, I can't say enough how wonderful this holiday was and a big part of that was staying at the Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas. I hope I haven't ruined my chances at staying there again because it will be booked out due to all the rave reviews it gets.

My only complaint is that we had to leave after seven days.

We very much enjoyed having you, your partner and your parents stay with us!
Rarotonga (and Muri in particular) is a dream location and it is so great that you all went out and enjoyed some of the activities on offer, while still managing some relaxing “down-time” lazing around the pool and villas.
We are pleased to hear that in a small way, we helped to make your holiday memorable and relaxing.
You are all very welcome to return anytime and I look forward to seeing you again very soon!

“Amazing”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Fantastic property - everything you could want and more. Very spacious, nice and bright with natural lighting throughout. Amazing swimming pool with stunning views over Muri.
Welcome orientation by the resort manager was much appreciated, as was the welcome hamper and free wifi voucher.
Highly recommend this property and would absolutely stay there again. Can't say enough about how amazing the property is.

“Beautiful Luxurious Spacious and Relaxing”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Having stayed in other resorts on the island Crystal Blue is totally unique and like no other. It is light modern and new. For similar pricing it was like being upgraded to first class from economy. I have only seen places like this in magazines. Much more space and light than other places,it is your own luxurious apartment, with art and glass vases in tropical blues set against cool white and cream furnishings. Absolutely stunning. I prefer the bedroom separate from the lounge and being upstairs the views are spectacular. The location is right amongst the life of Muri beach no need to drive to find good restaurants and night life. My wife loved the pool which is solar heated and easy to stay in all day, the hot tub is beautiful out under the stars and the bath was heaven for my wife and the extra large flat screen was awesome for movies and live rugby. For a very relaxing rewarding time away from children it is perfect even with it being right on the beach because you are elevated and away from prying eyes. We loved it so much we have reccommended Crystal Blue to our friends and they booked straight away.

Thank you/
We very much enjoyed having you and your wife stay with us…we just hope you didn’t spend too much time watching rugby!
We seasonally warm the outdoor pool, making it pleasant regardless of the weather, and also truly lovely to have a midnight swim.
When on holiday, you want to spoil yourselves and be spoilt, so we hope in a small way, we helped create a special time for you both and are part of the memories you will take with you.
We hope to see you both back here again one day soon, for another relaxing holiday just for the 2 of you.

Dont be alarmed by the lack of reviews, it is simply because the property is BRAND NEW.
Absolute attention has been taken both inside and out.
The double story villas are spacious and private; there are four in total but incredibly well designed so you wouldn't know you had neighbours unless you happened to be by the pool at the same time.
Spacious, open plan kitchen and living area with modern appliances; a gorgeous hamper was left for us after arriving in on a late flight, leaving no concern to have to go in search of supper.
Upstairs houses both bedrooms with large bathrooms; beautiful touches include candles next to the bath ready to light and all possible number of personal care items - you could arrive at Cystal Blue with nothing but your Passport and togs and be ready to go.
Wonderfully hosted by Robyn, airport trasfers were friendly, prompt and fuss-free; we had a 10pm flight out and we were offered the option to remain in our villa for the final day for a nominal fee despite there being an AM check-out. This was a really generous option that made for the perfect time to reflect on our amazing holiday in a location regarded as one of the most picturesque in the world - Thank you all at Crystal Blue Lagoon Villas for making this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Thank you very much for your review.
It was our pleasure to have you both stay with us and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit.
The hamper in the fridge is our “welcome” to our guests and gives you a chance to settle and unwind, after your flight. We hoped you sampled the Tapa Spa range of personal care items, as we chose these for their fragrance of coconut and passionflower, which brings back memories of holidays in the sand and sun…..exactly what you will find here in Muri !
We were happy to be able to offer you a Late Check Out on your last day, as the flight times can be a little hard to plan around, and we want our guests to enjoy their holiday right to the very end.
You are both very welcome to come back and stay with us anytime and we hope to see you again soon.

Take care

There is honestly not one. single. thing. I would change about this property. We had a warm welcome from Robyn on our arrival which was so nice and the accommodation is meticulous and fully stocked with everything you could need. Beautifully furnished, latest appliances including washer, dryer, top range coffee machine and large double door fridge freezer are high quality touches that you definitely don't get everywhere! With loads of space to relax upstairs, downstairs and outside it was VERY hard to leave! The pool is amazing and has the best view of Muri beach and the lagoon, as does both balconies of the apartment. We had so many people comment at how lucky we were while relaxing in the pool to have such stunning accommodation and we could not have agreed more! I could not recommend Crystal Blue enough to anyone looking at staying in high quality, luxury beach front accommodation at Muri and really cannot wait till we can come back. Thanks so much to everyone @ Crystal Blue, you guys and your property are amazing!

Thank you!
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us…it was such a shame that it was only for a short time!
When we created and furnished our villas, our guests comfort was foremost, and then we added in a few added luxury extras, to help make everyone’s stay a little special.
With the pool overlooking the lagoon, you are right that people on the beach notice what a perfect spot it is and it is an ideal place to watch the activities in the “aquatic playground” of Muri beach.
We look forward to your next visit, which hopefully will be for a lot longer.
