My wife and I spent the last 4 days of our 10-year wedding anniversary trip traveling through New Zealand with a short stop in the Cook Islands. After traveling and experiencing some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen in the world we were excited to kick back and enjoy a tropical experience in the cook islands. Of all...

We will be back, both with friends and on our own again. Andrew & Belinda, as per all other reviews, are the perfect hosts. If anyone has aced 'professional while being personable' and 'so efficient, yet so relaxed' it is those 2. When we needed them, they were instantaneously there or answering the phone. When we didn't, we knew exactly...

So delighted by our stay at Rumours - our beachfront villa (Villa 2) was beautiful, spacious and immaculate - we didn't want to leave! We loved the stunning private pool with waterfall and jacuzzi which were perfect for relaxing after a day of snorkelling or kayaking in the lagoon. It was paradise to wake up each morning to a beachfront...

My partner went twice and then booked me for the deep tissue massage. One word. Amazing. Wasn't cheap but worth every cent. They say you don't mind paying for quality and that's what we got. A big 5 stars.

Really really enjoyed our stay at Rumours. Outstanding service from the moment we were collected from the airport. Room was great - Clean, right on the beach, kayaks etc etc. The room had all the amenities needed which meant we could bring our own food over and happily just cook like we were at home.

Our stay at Rumours exceeded our expectations. First of all, Belinda and Andrew were the best. They addressed any questions or concerns before, during and after our stay with patience and grace. The customer service was five star and very much appreciated. We stayed in the Platinum Villa and just loved it! Everything was spotless and fully stocked. The pool...
