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
