"Beyond expectations The setting of Kia Orana Villas and Spa is spectacular. Although there is no beachfront, the villas are nestled amongst beautiful fruit, banana and coconut trees. We have stayed in other accommodations and resorts in Rarotonga and enjoyed our stay but Sane, Joe, Lai and the cleaning crew were amazing, lovely and welcoming people that made us feel at home. We always enjoyed a chat in the morning during breakfast with everyone. The villa was fitted with high quality appliances and had everything we could have ever needed for our 7 night stay. The villa was serviced daily and was spotless upon returning from activities out and about on the island. The photos do not do the villas and setting justice. We loved every minute of our stay at Kiaorana Villas and would 100% be returning on our next trip to Rarotonga."

Kia Orana Villas and Spa
Kia Orana Villas and Spa is situated within a 3,862 square meter tranquil section landscaped with tropical plants and fruit plants/trees at 2 Ariki Road, just off the Ara Metua (Back Road), in a very quiet and secluded area of the small village of Atupa, Rarotonga - ideal for those who have come to the island to escape the hustle and bustle. Avarua and Rarotonga Airport are a short distance away.

We can accommodate a maximum of 34 guests plus infants. The Villas are ideal for families, couples, friends, singles and business people.
