Hello Rumours Team:

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for a wonderful stay at your Villas. They are truly wonderful ! Our trip started off well right at the airport when we were picked up by Jone. He was informative, friendly and very welcoming. It was also followed on when we met Toni. She was so friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. Carol and Grant you have been a delight from start to finish and we are happy we chose Rumours in Rarotonga for our honeymoon. Thanks again for the memories and a wonderful honeymoon.

- Paul & Amanda


Thank you for your kindness and your wonderful warm hospitality. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Rumours and Raro enabled us to rest, relax and recharge - and what a pleasant contrast it was compared to working like machines each day. We have enjoyed our little chats and your company. ............ If and when you do return to Auckland, please think of us for a coffee or drink. We would love to know how things are going. Until next time.

- R & P.


To the Rumours Team: We cannot thank you enough for ensuring our stay was as fulfilling and pleasurable as we could have wished for. Rumours is as beautiful as the island it is situated on. Thank you for all your help, aloe vera, sunblock, dettol, and most of all - your kindness. We do hope to come back at some point.

-C & P


We have just returned from 10 days in Rarotonga. It is everything a tropical paradise should be. Although we didn't stay at the Rumours Villas we did come in for a lovely massage treatment. Myrna came in on her day off to accommodate us and we all had lovely luxurious massages. Myrna has magic hands and one of our party had never had a massage before. She came out feeling 3 inches taller and felt like she was walking on air. It was a shame that we didn't have any time to return before heading back to NZ. This would definitely be on our itinerary when we return we are already saving again to come back... A big thanks to Myrna for making it so special.

- Regards, Heather, Sharon and Carole


From the moment we were picked up from the airport, we have felt truly welcomed at your World Class seaside Resort. Sandra and myself travel the world seeking out those special places to stay and for what it is worth, we rate you all up there with the best resorts the world has to offer. We both look forward to returning with our adult children next year - hope we will find you all still maintaining the excellence you've achieved, that so few do. Many thanks

- Chris & Sandra


'Oh yes, we know we want to return. We enjoyed our stay so much more than when in Hawaii so we know we want to come back.' 'We were able to relax totally--the water features and the views to the ocean are just indescribable! You have a marvelous selection of movies and CDs and we really just escaped from the world, exactly what we both needed' 'We had a WONDERFUL holiday and the villa (and you guys) were the main reasons!!! I cannot say enough about the villa.....it was so wonderful. We arrived home last night and haven't stopped talking about the wonderful hospitality. Thank you again and best wishes.'

- Fondly, Laura & Ken

Oh boy it was hard to leave. Thanks so much for your hospitality over the last few days. This place certainly has it all. Cheers,

- Anton & Jules

Thank you for a fabulous stay. We enjoyed your island, activities, restaurants, people and much more. Rumours was absolutely incredible. John and I had an amazing honeymoon. The hospitality was terrific and the accommodation just a dream !!! We will pass your name on to our friends in the States. Rumours just TOPS THE CHARTS !!! A big star in our book!! Take care.

- Meitaki, John & Lisa

Dear Grant & Carolyn Just a brief note to say what a wonderful, relaxed and romantic time Normaine and I have had at Rumours. Our villa was quite splendid and your attention to detail was amazing. It was one of the finest places in which we have ever stayed. We will be recommending Rumours unreservedly.

- Kindest regards, Rob & Normaine

This property has to be seen to be believed. Your website is lovely, but still does not do justice to these magnificent villas. To have the spaciousness and the luxury that they have, just makes any holiday very special. Of course being able to sit and look at the lagoon all day is great too. We have considered ourselves very fortunate to have been able to stay here. With our thanks

- David & Katherine

Thank you for all you have done for us during our stay here at Rumours. The accommodation and the service and friendliness of the staff have helped make our honeymoon more than we ever hoped it to be. Will be back to celebrate our first anniversary at this seaside resort. Meitaki (thank you)

- Peter & Laura

Thank you SO much for making our honeymoon so fantastic. We truly had the time of our lives. We look forward to many anniversary trip here again. The service, accommodation and smiles everyday far exceeded our expectations and made this trip a joy. Thank you.

- Colin & Cathy

Thank you for an absolutely perfect holiday. Everything about Rumours is really special, first class and memorable. Thank you also for your friendliness. The staff are as special as the venue.

- Tony & Patricia

I just wanted to let you know what our clients had to say about Rumours. Thank you so much for taking such good care of them. 'I can't thank you enough for setting us up with Rumours Of Romance. It was breathtaking and we felt like movie stars. The resort was that luxurious. I have no idea how you were able to hook us up with a place like that. The Cook Islands were perfect for us. It was so secluded. I felt like there was only a handful of tourists there and the privacy was next to none. I think this place is perfect for couples and I'm recommending it to all my friends.

- Robin

Thank you very much. It has been a really pleasurable stay. Your villas are immaculately maintained with the samllest detail thought of and looked after.

- Wayne & Joyce

We made it home today around noon. Very sad to be back home. We have decided that we want to come and stay a month next year. We have a plan....You really made our stay the most incredible vacation that we have ever spent. I will be staying in touch with you from time to time - kinda grew fond of you guys. Also we have told every stranger that would listen about you guys and your place. I do hope that I didn't tell too many because I don't want them taking up our spot !!

- Jeff & Leslie

We have been so busy since back home, but Brandon and I cannot stop talking about how wonderful our honeymoon was (thanks to you guys) as you really made it quite special for us. I would like to post our experience on Tripadvisor and plan to do this during the coming weekend and make sure I put some photos up too. I was telling my family that we didn't want for a thing, tons of clean towels and a villa cleaned to perfection. Tell the staff we both say hello.

- Brandon & Kimberly


Kia Orana and greetings everyone, First and foremost, Steve and I want to thank you all for ensuring we had a great honeymoon. Matthew and Tara - it was a pleasure meeting you both, we have such fond memories. You run a first class all inclusive package operation and we will promote 'Rumours' at every opportunity we have. In fact we've already given out your website and email addresses to some friends of ours. We were so impressed with our villa and the island with the wonderful people who live there. Leif - thank you for picking us up and taking us to the airport even though you had a family BBQ in progress - much appreciated. Toni and Thecla, thank you for keeping our lovely villa in top shape throughout our stay. As we said, we would like to visit again. The dates we have in mind are.

- Dori & Steve

Thanks for looking after us so well. We had an awesome honeymoon. The people are so happy and the island is spectacular. We both really enjoyed our trip and hope to come again soon.

- Brendon and Kathryn

To the Team at Rumours: We’d like to thank you for the wonderful experiences we shared here in Rarotonga. We had the most phenomenal views and were most impressed by the friendliness and professionalism we witnessed at Rumours. A special Meitaki to Michal for helping us organize all our activities and for her assistance at all times.

- Diana & Raymond.

To the Rumours Team! Our warmest thanks to you all for a truly amazing stay here at this truly amazing resort. Our holiday has been wonderful and the memories of our time here will remain very special to us both always. It was a wonderful anniversary for us and your help and thoughtfulness towards us was very much appreciated. Please accept this token of our thanks.

- Rebecca & Brett

Kia Orana - I would like to pass on these good words written by my honeymoon clients about your property and your staff. They especially wanted to compliment Tony and Leif for their great service and kind attention. It was a wonderful two weeks for them. You obviously have done an amazing job of making Rumours the best vacation and honeymoon experience in Rarotonga. All of my client’s expectations were met and exceeded by the property, the hospitality and the staff.

- Meiktaki - Vincent. VIP Travel.

WOW ! It was just as the brochure said. “Close the gate behind you and enter your own private world” The villa was perfect and I personally would not change anything. There was plenty of room and we were able to have a BBQ the whole time which I loved, the starter breakfast was excellent. I did not realize that it was an everyday service.

- David & Angie

Penny and I have just recently returned from our honeymoon but wanted to send out a big thank you for helping make our trip as memorable as it was. It was beautiful first stop and the ideal way to wind down for a few days after being so hectically organizing the wedding in the last few weeks. Next time we’re in need of a tropical getaway, we definitely know where to head.

- Michael & Penny

Matt and Tara – I am writing to thank you for taking carre of me while on holiday at Rarotonga last month. The love and the care of people in Rarotonga is fantastic. Thank you so much for my lovely villa, the views were great and I could not have asked formore. Thank you Leif for picking me up and returning me to the airport. You are a lovely young man. A special thank you to Tino for all his help. Nothing was a problem. I will never forget your kindness.

- Anna Marie


We just wanted to thank you so much for all you’ve done to make our honeymoon so special. It’s been such a luxury to stay in the Ultimate Villa – starting every morning with a decadent breakfast overlooking the ocean and to have such fantastic 5 star service. It really has been the perfect holiday that has way surpassed our expectations. We will look forward to returning.

- Kristian & Sascha

Thank you so much for everything here at Rumours. We love the pool and easy access to wonderful restaurants here in the Cook Islands. We will definitely be coming back.

- Cheryl & Cody

I have spoken to Richard and I’m pleased to report that he said your villa was the best accommodation he has every stayed in anywhere in the world and they will definitely be making a repeat visit to you in the future.

- Jenny

We wish to take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful stay. We were a little rushed this afternoon and did not get to say thanks. The villas has been everything we had hoped for, luxury privacy, fabulous location and a real getaway for us. Our stay in Rarotonga has held some great memories.

- Steve & Sharyn

Personally, I think the best thing about Rumours was that while it’s 5 star accommodation, you never get the sense that you are staying at a large, over-the-top island resort. In many respects, it feels like our “home away from home” - this is what sets you apart. The intimacy and attention to detail that you and your staff showed towards our needs demonstrated how much you care about your clientele. Having this passion is something that Rumours should be very proud of.

- Glenn and Nicole

The above feedback is just a sample to demonstrate why so many guests feel we are the best of the resorts and hotels on Rarotonga, please Contact Us if you would like to come and experience Rumours for yourself.
