Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Rumours Luxury Villas & Reflections on Rarotonga, Muri Lagoon, Rarotonga.
Here are two words which spring to mind when entering your villa at Rumours Luxury Villas - “Amazing” and “Incredible”. The feeling of space and style permeates the whole villa and those villas which have a beach frontage, open to a sublime vista of the clear lagoon, reef and ocean. They have managed to capture a perfect balance of luxury and relaxed island-style ambience.  Rumours is a great spot for a romantic break and a marvellous location for a honeymoon. The design of each villa is outstanding and fits perfectly with their location on the Muri Lagoon. Most villas give you the opportunity to enjoy the beach atmosphere out front and, on the odd occasion, especially in the winter months, when the cooler south-easterly winds may spring up, to repair into the private world of their sheltered, gated garden courtyards complete with a bigger-than-plunge pool-sized swimming pool which is fed by a waterfall cascading over a rock promontory at one end and in all except the Beachside Villas, a bubbling hot Jacuzzi Spa Pool. (Reflections villas also don't have spa pools). Every villa is a minimum of 230m2 – you can’t help but be impressed by the feeling of space and quality.  A great shopping complex is located next to Rumours Luxury Villas in Muri.  The complex includes a general store, liquor store, restaurant, bar, coffee cart and a takeaway food options.

Minimum Stay Policy:
Both Rumours Luxury Villas & Reflections on Rarotonga have a minimum stay policy of 3 consecutive nights.

Room Categories
(In ascending order of tariff)

Rumours Luxury Villas:

Bullet Rumours Beachside Villas:
These are part of the group of 5 villas and are lead-in price wise at Rumours.  With all the same luxury facilities as the Beachfront Villas, the reason for their price difference lies in the fact they do not offer a direct beach view (although they are both very close to the beach and have direct beach access) and, while they each have private courtyard gardens, swimming pool and waterfall, they do not offer a Jacuzzi Spa Bath as do the more expensive Beachfront Villas and the Beachfront Platinum Villa. For those seeking total privacy and a less expensive option, consider these Beachside Villas – there is no compromise on the standard luxury features and services.
Each Villa is approximately 230m2 in area
Maximum Occupancy: 4 Adults
Existing Bedding: 1 Super-King Canopied Bed in both bedrooms
Additional Bedding: A single rollaway bed may be added in one villa should the third and fourth guests require separate sleeping arrangements.

Walk across a little bridge to your bedroom.
