What You’ll Love…

The Resort – Pristine beauty beside of the island’s best beaches

Nestled amongst pristine, fragrant gardens dotted with gently-swaying coconut palms and lily pad ponds are the ten, traditional thatched villas of Royal Takitumu, each dreamily secluded, allowing guests to holiday at their own pace. Just a short stroll from the villas is the serene Muri Beach, widely regarded as one of the finest on the island with its powder-white sands and exceptional snorkelling in the waters of Titikaveka lagoon. Although this natural playground is unlikely to lose its allure, the large freshwater pool nestled under the fringes of the coconut palms offers an alternative setting for relaxing in the sunshine.

The Villas – The perfect setting for serene island living

Each spacious Polynesian-inspired villa features a lounge area, a full kitchen for ultimate ease, a huge bathroom with a bubbling spa bath and an air-conditioned bedroom with a comfy king-sized bed, all just steps from the beach. Prepare a laid-back breakfast from your complimentary basket (packed with bread, jam, cereals, fruits, yogurt, eggs, juice and milk) and pull up a seat on your veranda to soak up views of the lagoon. When the sun sets on this tropical island, raise a glass to another day in paradise with your included bottle of wine. What better way to start and end the day?

Beachfront Upgrade: Embrace the island life when you upgrade to one of the resort's striking Beachfront Villas, offering all the fantastic facilities of the Lagoon View Villas, these residences enjoy a location right on the beachfront.

VIP Upgrade: Celebrating a special occasion? Upgrade to a Premium Beachfront Villa, nestled in a more secluded location on the beachfront, to make your stay extra special. Step easily between the beach and your villa during the day, which features a spacious private veranda for soaking up the lagoon views.

See & Do – Snorkelling in the lagoon and exploring amongst the rainforest

With one of the island’s most gorgeous beaches right on your doorstep, you’ll be totally spoilt when it comes to spotting tropical marine life in the lagoon with complimentary snorkelling, kayaking. Hop on one of the resort's e-bikes and explore the surrounding areas, looking for the more secluded beaches.

Restaurants and bars are plentiful around the perimeter of the island with several scenic oceanfront options to indulge in. Enjoy a talk and tasting at the local Matutu Brewing Company, whose handcrafted, boutique beers are exclusive to the Cook Islands. Make a stop at the tropical Maire Nui Botanical Gardens and café, seek out the hidden Wigmore’s Waterfall, go quad biking, sample locally-cooked cuisine and browse handicrafts at Muri night market (every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 17:30), try stand-up paddleboarding at night on a light-up board, take a day tour to Aitutaki, see a cultural show... the choice is yours on an escape that can be as active or chilled as you please.
