Enjoy an exclusive, liberating and peaceful stay at Kia Orana Villas and Spa

"The villas at Kia Orana Villas are absolutely exceptional - the photos do not do it justice. The room was spacious and clean and came with all the information and products I needed to get through the week. It is located a stone's throw away from Avarua (the main city) and was in a very quiet and secluded area of Atupa - very good if you have come to the island to escape the hustle and bustle. Sane (the General Manager) is an absolutely lovely lady who always greeted me when we crossed paths in the morning and recommended heaps of activities to do during my time. The housekeeping team were very good, my villa was always a lot cleaner than when it was when I left it which is fantastic. Although initially skeptical re the outdoor shower and bath, it was a phenomenal experience and very liberating which was absolutely fantastic, I'm certain it was one of the highlights from my trip. I absolutely adored my time staying at Kia Orana Villas and would definitely recommend it to everyone." Jessie - guest review Booking.com 28 May 2019 rating 10/10

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. 

While we are not on the beachfront or a bus route, if you are looking for a tropical home away from home in a very quiet and secluded area, with friendly experienced staff, this is the place to stay.
