About Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa

Accommodations at Rumours Rarotonga

The resort offers lavishly-appointed beachfront/ beachside villas, comparable to any luxury resort across the globe. Each villa comes with its own private pool, a landscaped garden, courtyard, beach loungers and VIP level of service and attention. Inside all the villas are two bedrooms with super king-size, four-poster beds; large-screen LCD TVs with a huge selection of DVDs, recliners, canopied day-beds, marble floors and a fully-equipped kitchen with bespoke dinnerware. Each villa, from the Beachfront Spa Villas, Rarotonga Beachside Romance Villas to the super-luxurious Beachfront Platinum Villa, is unique. Some have natural streams diving the bedrooms with live fish, others have a spa pool/ outdoor dining pavilion and the last one has a full-blown home theatre with 2.5 metre screen and surround sound. And these are no rumours, indeed.

Activities and Things to Do at Rarotonga, Cook Islands

Straight off the bat, the swimming, snorkelling and kayaking off the resort’s silky white sand beach is fabulous. These activities require little equipment and they are freely available from the resort’s activities hut. Then, for first timers, we’d heartily recommend signing up for a cultural night at the Te Vara Nui village. In a few fun hours, travellers will get a short, but deep insight into how the Polynesian culture has evolved over the centuries into a homogeneous fabric that brings together the tribes as a giant family. At the risk of sounding trite, it’s a great initiation into how the island life functions, how it has come to be and people get to sample some fantastically lovely song-and-dance sequences. There’s also a fusion buffet meal and drinks, too.

For adventure-lovers, there’s nothing better than dive into Cook Islands’ crystal-clear depths and explore the drift dives, shark-feeding sessions, paragliding and jetski tours. Then, after a bit of relaxing/energetic island pub crawls, travellers can jump into jungle tours, waterfalls hikes, island hopping sojourns and so on. In fact, Atiu is globally renowned as the Island of Birds – have you heard about it? Check it out in our blog ‘Atiu, Cook Islands: The Hidden Gem of Adventure!’

Dining at Rumours Luxury Villas

All the villas feature a fully equipped kitchen; at the same time Rarotonga hosts a number of bars, restaurants and pubs within a short driving distance.

If you’re also making a list of things to do and it includes watersports, do read our blog on scuba-diving in Cook Islands – maybe it’ll add a few gems to your holiday. For cultural shindigs, do try an evening at the Te Vara Nui village – the song and dance routines are pure magic. We’ve written a blog on everything you’d want to know about the Te Vara Nui Village, so feel free to have a read!
