Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa Cook Islands , a melding of “Rumours of Romance” and “Reflections on Rarotonga” two 5 star resorts on Rarotonga. Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa Cook Islands  is situated over two absolute beachfront locations in the Muri Beach area of Rarotonga which also has the small outer islands very close by. This is on the Southern side of the island, which is protected largely from tropical cyclones and which has spectacular sunrises, rising moon over the water, and the afterglow of spectacular sunsets.

All the Rumours villas are far enough away from the larger resorts in the Muri Beach area to allow you to mostly have a very private beach to enjoy. Apart from the occasional person strolling on the beach, you will see very few people from your beachfront villa deck, so it really is a luxury retreat to privacy and peaceful surroundings. Let the pressure of today’s fast paced world just drift away and visit Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa, a luxury resort in the Cook Islands.

It is not only the absolute beachfront cove location where you can step off your deck onto the white sandy lagoon edge that is magical, it’s also the resort villas themselves. Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa on Rarotonga has been built to cater for the most discerning of guest; the luxury traveler, the special occasion couples including ultimate luxury standard weddings and honeymoons.

Each Beachfront Villa has either a 60 or 42 inch LCD TV unit complete with surround sound Home Theatre systems built in to their living area entertainment centres for a movie sensation that has to be seen to be believed. Rumours have a huge selection of DVD movies, music CD’s, and novels to wile away those times when guests don’t feel like swimming, sunbathing, or doing something more strenuous. For those who like to keep up with work or family, broadband wireless internet access is available throughout each villa and their grounds, even right onto the beach!

Whet your appetite for a stay in the luxury accommodation at Rumours as you consider the inclusions you will receive on arrival. The moment you fly into Rarotonga you will be met by their representative who will greet you with a personal welcome, place a lovely floral ei’ around your neck, provide a Champagne basket, and treat you like the VIP you are. Attention is given to ensuring that all guests are treated as VIP’s. A Champagne arrival gift basket is part of the complimentary package included ensuring that you have nothing to worry about from the moment they exit Customs and Immigration until you are delivered back to the airport.

The central “Ultimate” Villa really lives up to its name! Everything has been thought of from the dedicated Movie Theatre room with its 2.5 metre screen and full theatre projector and sound systems, through to the indoor waterfall, and arched bridge entry over the waterfall fed swimming pool!

Each Villa has two bedrooms, each furnished with a romantic super-king four-poster hand carved and canopied bed as it’s focus. Each bedroom has its own luxury bathroom with Italian fittings and polished marble stone floors and walls. Surround yourself with a standard of exclusiveness, romance and indulgence which will refresh you, sooth your soul, and stay etched in your memory long after you leave Rarotonga.

Each bedroom has it’s own luxury bathroom incorporating Italian fittings, marble floors and walls. Unique clear glass block showers are built into their own private garden & stream and are bathed with romantic garden lighting at night.

The private swimming pool provided for each villa is set amidst it’s own tropical gardens, waterfalls, fountains and streams plus a heated spa pool for star gazing on those slightly cooler nights adds that final touch of romance and luxury. The Ultimate Villa features an arched bridge entry over the waterfall fed swimming pool!

The on site wedding coordinator specializes in luxury weddings with attention to detail, including: a candle lit villa and fresh flowers placed in your villa after your wedding – ensuring that the standard provided will be a wonderful experience for this extremely special day of your lives.

If you want your family and friends to be with you – Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa is small enough to book out for your own group, yet big enough to accommodate all in a way that you can be together but still retain your privacy in each villa. It is envisaged that Rumours will find favor with those wanting a group booking situation where you can take the whole property and all luxury accommodation for your own specific event, such as family weddings.

The option also exists for Champagne Brunch Baskets to be delivered to guests villa on the morning of their choice, or Champagne Dinner Baskets delivered in the evening. In house massages, facials etc can also be arranged with minimum notice.

Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa’s office and housekeeping staffs are trained to provide the level of service you would expect to receiver at this class of establishment, without intruding upon the guest’s solitude. Whether it is organising a day tour to one of the outer islands, providing daily servicing, or arranging an in-house spa treatment or private chef dining experience, service is their prime concern.

Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa is a melding of “Rumours of Romance” and “Reflections on Rarotonga”, the two 5 star properties on Rarotonga nestled into the fringe of Muri Lagoon. At Rumours Luxury Villas & Spa there are four villa options for you, Beachfront Villas, the Ultimate Beachfront Villa, Beachfront Spa Villas, and Beach Front Romance Villas.

Our trip to the Cook Islands was wonderful. Everything about our stay was great. Both places we stayed were really nice and the people were very friendly. The Aitutaki Escapes were absolutely amazing. Thanks for all your help.
