About MOTU Beachfront Art Villas

Experienced travellers will recognise the MOTU Beachfront Art Villas as the former Royale Takitumu Villas – it was, and not it has been redone from the ground up. The design of these villas has been heavily influenced by traditional Polynesian architecture, from the high-vaulted thatched roofs, to locally sourced timber and choice South Pacific artwork. Guests can choose Onu Lagoon View villas, Manutai Beachfront Villas and Ariki Premium Beachfront villas at the Motu Beachfront Art Villas. Each of the villas feature a king-size bed, ensuite bathroom and a kitchenette.

Dining at MOTU Beachfront Art Villas

All villas are self-catered and feature a fully-functional kitchen. Besides, there’s a huge selection of bars, pubs, restaurants and are only a short drive away. 

Activities & Things to Do at MOTU Beachfront Art Villas

As is expected, Rarotonga’s beautiful beaches, excellent scuba-diving and snorkelling never disappoint. Just check with our Specialists and we’ll set up some of the best tours and experiences in Cook Islands for you. From 4×4 off-road forest safaris, hiking and exploration, village visits, cultural nights, sunset cruises, dive live-aboards and more – just click, choose and go. If you feel like talking to a Specialists for tabling ideas for a special couples’ getaway, a Cook Islands destination wedding or a honeymoon, why we’d love to help set it up for you!

For first-time travellers, we’d recommend a fun immersion into Cook Islands culture and tradition – sign up for a evening of song, dance, entertainment and dining at the Te Vara Nui village – it’s an authentic Polynesian village experience where local artists showcase the island way of life, a brief history, a retelling of fascinating stories and legends – and a scrumptious traditional underground oven feast. Read more about it in our blog ‘Te Vara Nui – A Glimpse into Cook Islands’ Cultural Loveliness!‘ Then, in case if travellers have a bucket-list of scuba-diving hotspots to explore on their Cook Islands holiday, feel free to check our South Pacific Specialists’ list of scuba-diving hotspots in Cook Islands.
