Enjoy a liberating and peaceful stay at Kia Orana Villas and Spa

Kia orana Welcome to our Kia Orana Villas: A peaceful getaway where you can rejuvenate your body and clear your mind. The best places to visit in 2022 have been named by the travel experts at Lonely Planet – and it's the Cook Islands that's number one. The Cook Islands border is now open for all double vaccinated passport holders over 16 years and 3 months, and unvaccinated travellers aged 16 and under. All pre-departure RAT or PCR testing requirements have been removed. "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." Nekko - guest review Booking.com 6 February 2020 rating 10/10

We reduce the use of plastic by buying products in bulk.

Please help reduce plastic bottle waste in Rarotonga by using the commercially filtered water available at our reception villa, not buying water in plastic bottles, and buying reusable water bottles from the local environmental group Te Ipukarea Society. Please help us save energy by turning off lights' fans and air-conditioning when you go out.  Please help us conserve water. As part of our Going Green effort bed linen is changed every 3 days.
