    We had the 2 bedroom villa which was perfect for us with kids. Spacious and beautiful. Great location, easy to walk to market and restaurants. Lagoon is beautiful but no fish, just full of sea cucumbers so it’s not fun to walk in. Walk further down or drive to a different area for tons of fish right at your doorstep.

    Loved the individual plunge pools at each bure but could have done with thicker fencing around the room for added privacy. Great venue and service

    Rarotonga luxury holiday

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nautilus, the staff were friendly and engaging and the infinity pool a delight. The rooms were clean and comfortable but would need a kindle to read at night as the lighting is minimal. Lots of water activity gear available kayaks, sups and snorkeling gear. The location is great being right on the beach and plenty of eateries within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

    Best resort on Rarotonga. Nice beach to snorkel from out and around island. Food 5 star. Location can walk from. Suggest hiring a car though. Room on beach with own pool very luxurious. Great wet edge pool overlooking lagoon.

    What a beautiful property! The staff is fantastic, very kind and always helpful. I loved how they always remembered my name. The views are amazing, the pool is fantastic, and the food at the restaurant is tasty. Loved the local options. I splurged on a beachfront room and it was worth every penny! Private. Nice way to relax. Highly recommend.
