We found the resort fantastic. Great location, breakfast was beautiful, you have to try the smoothy. .. Yum yum. We loved the supplied kyayk. After our beautiful breakfast, we paddeled out to the coral and snorkeled looking at the fish and coral in the crystal clear water. Our long lunch was a leasurly strole up the beach to Nautalus who supplied a fantastic range of gluten and dairy free food, all of which was absolutely beautiful. The afternoon was a nap, a movie from the huge range supplied at rumours or another swim( beach, pool or spa). Dinner was again a strole up the beach to Nautalus and home by torch to spot the breach critters. Cooking was available in the well supplied kitchen, but why cook when your on holidays.
Rumours staff was fantastic.
Totally relaxing and a great getaway.
From our warm welcome at the airport Te Vakaroa Villas met all of our expectations. A beautiful, relaxing setting with luxury accommodation in immaculate and clean condition. This is not a big resort with everything that entails - it is a small, luxury property with just 6 very fine Villas. We enjoyed the ability to eat out effortlessly at Sails restaurant next door (or other equally good places very close by) along with the option to cook 'at home'. Relaxing on the large day bed looking over the lagoon was my idea of heaven. The convenience store 100 metres away, open from 6 am to 10 pm supplied all the essentials (eg beer for just $2.50 per Heineken). We hope to return in the near future and thank all of the friendly, efficient and unobtrusive team at Te Vakaroa Villas for a wonderful holiday.
"Highly Recommended for a Fantastic Island Getaway"
We absolutely loved our stay at Muri Beachcomber. We spent five nights in Room 22 (one of the Watergarden Villas) on our honeymoon, and can't speak highly enough of the experience.
Our villa was clean, spacious, tastefully decorated, and came complete with a two fantastic hammocks on our front porch.
Situated only metres from gorgeous Muri Lagoon, our villa was set back amongst beautiful tropical gardens with a pond full of water lilies and plenty of fish. The resort is situated right next door to the Muri Night Markets, with Island Rentals across the road, and a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants within two minutes' walk.
The staff were wonderful, with great advice about where to eat/drink/play, and we made use of the free bicycles, flippers and kayaks almost every day.
We absolutely recommend the Muri Beachcomber to anyone looking for a stress-free holiday in paradise.
Amazing resort and exactly what we were expecting, rooms are large and modern with air conditioning, fridge, microwave and coffee machine. Resort is so close to our favourite part of Rarotonga, Muri beach and the everlasting pool looks amazing overlooking the beach, restaurant was well staffed, meals were fantastic and good drinks.
On the southeastern tip of the island of Rarotonga, Muri Beach is an archetypal South Pacific getaway. Palm trees adorn powder-white beaches, and beachgoers often quench their island thirst with fresh coconut milk. Snorkelers and divers find this area to be a particular favorite, as its protected lagoon coastline and turquoise waters are home to a vast array of coral and marine life.
