TRIPADVISOR ACCOLADE 30th October 2010 Rumours Luxury Villas and Spa in Rarotonga has just received a Certificate Of Excellence from the world’s leading Travel Review websiteThe certificate acknowledges a 100% overall excellence in guest ratings from those who have stayed at the property throughout 2010 Our staff at Rumours work extremely hard to maintain our positioning on the island as a recognised extremely high standard of luxury villa accommodation, not only with presenting a villa standard of a world class but also along with that, realise that a property can be beautiful but if there is not the same high standard of service, then it is of limited valueWe have a small staff in place but one highly dedicated and motivated to do the very best they individually can and take pride in the personal satisfaction they gain from seeing happy and contented guests commenting on departure that they don’t really ever want to leaveThe majority of our staff here at Rumours have been with us for years, with the latest staff member now being into her second year and not wanting to leave at the end of her three year contract alreadyA happy team also goes a long way to having happy guests ! Hopefully we will be able to show the readers of this blog some of the same high standard Cook Island hospitality at some point in the future.
