Situated right on the sands of renowned Muri Beach, but given privacy in its own beautiful and secluded cove, each villa has magnificent lagoon views and decks that step straight onto the white coral sand beach.Complimentary sun lounges, kayaks, snorkelling gear, and beach games available to make the most of your exotic surroundings. Each villa has two bedrooms with romantic super-king four-poster hand carved and canopied beds and each bedroom has its own luxury bathroom with Italian fittings and marble floors and walls.  Bathrooms are built into its own private garden with stream and feature clear glass block walled and pebble floored shower. Two large Italian ceramic basins grace the custom-built marble vanity units with imported carved mirrors above. Marble is used exclusively for flooring throughout, and huge decks extend both on to the white sand and also around the pool areas.  Four-poster day beds for relaxing in the lounge and fully equipped designer kitchens allow for a “stay at home” or gourmet catering can be arranged, including Champagne Brunch or Dinner Baskets delivered at the time of your choice, and of course there are built in stainless steel BBQ’s on both front & rear decks.

The two beachfront villas have 60-inch LCD TV units 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. Similar systems with 42-inch LCD screens are incorporated into the beachside villas.

Hotel Amenities

The Villas on Rarotonga are located in a secluded cove with sandy beach and decent swimming lagoon. The beach is hemmed in both sides by boulders and if you walk around the north side of these you'll end up on the southern stretch of Muri Beach.

Complimentary sun lounges, kayaks, snorkelling gear, and beach games are available. This is however a relaxing holiday destination without organised activities. For more active watersports, it's a short stroll to Muri Beach and the Sailing Club where these can be arranged.
