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.
Lovely villas with great views on Muri beach, clean and well kept accommodation, walking distance to nice restaurants
For such expensive accommodation, charging for every little extra is a real turn off (i.e. transfers from airport despite it being only 20 mins and sharing with 3 other people, paddle boards, WIFI etc etc)
Breakfast was good some days and not on others......cheap sliced bread when they are so close to the lovely bakery was a massive let down!!!
Also, I think they should increase the 12 year old limit - we had teenage girls shouting from pool to balcony every day with no consideration for other guests trying to enjoy the break
We stayed in villa 4 after being picked up from the airport, where we were 20m from the beach front and had everything we needed.
We were on our honeymoon and didn't have much money to spend, and it worked extremely well for us as if we wanted to go for dinner or go to the shops or go on one of the main attraction tours it was all only five minutes walk away.
We would definitely stay here again, the staff and managers were so friendly and helpful it made the perfect trip for us.
We are just back from a gorgeous 6 nights at Nautilus and we wished it could have been much longer. The room was luxurious, tastefully appointed, had lots of little lovely touches like champagne and fruit on arrival, bath salts for the deep relaxing tub, private pool and fudge and turn down every night...and was extremely comfortable. The only disappointing part was that as this is a popular place for weddings there were a number of times when the facilities such as the bar and restaurant were not available. Surely a resort this pricey could have one part of the bar reserved for guests or a private function space? This was very disappointing particularly on our last night when we were planning a romantic dinner and had to go to the neighbouring overpriced and underwhelming Aqua restaurant (see separate review) surprisingly owned by the same people.
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.
