"Honestly, if I had all the time in the world to use only the best words to describe staying at this place, I would. This place is so convenient for literally everything you can walk to town easily, and most of the best bars and clubs are a stone's throw away. If you want to hike, the Needle is only a 3min drive. Sane, Joe, and the Team make this place feel like home for you. With the floods happening in Auckland and the delayed flights they made sure we were looked after. They have DVDs for everything if you just want to keep cozy. The spa and pool after a hot day out and about was the best thing to come back to as well as the fully air-conditioned rooms. I cannot express how great of a stay it was and how welcome we felt. It was my first trip to Rarotonga and I don’t ever think I’d want to stay or try anywhere else. The kindness you receive from the people here forces you to reflect on yourself, especially if you come from a big city. And the best lesson learned is to smile at people more. These people make the place even better. Meitaki Kia Orana Villas, Ngā mihi nui. p.s. I had left my jumper in the dryer and Sane brought it all the way to me outside the international departure lounge in the pouring rain!!! It’s like being with whānau."

At Kia Orana Villas and Spa, our relationship with the environment isn't just transactional; it's deeply rooted in the respect and guardianship values of Mana Tiaki. We recognise our responsibility as the guardians of the land to preserve it for future generations. We understand the integral role the environment plays in the Cook Islands cultural and spiritual traditions. We want to keep these traditions alive, and share their significance with guests, our team, and the community. We have implemented a variety of eco-friendly practices, such as using only eco-friendly cleaning products, washing powder, and toilet paper, as well as having our own grey water treatment plants, worm farm, and solar water heating panels. We buy products in bulk to reduce packaging waste, minimise the use of plastic, and have recycling bins. We provide commercially filtered water to guests, thereby reducing the demand for plastic bottles.

We have been gold sponsors of Te Ipukarea Society since 2019 to further our goal of environmental preservation. We maintain and promote our Mana Tiaki Eco-certification and Cook Islands Quality Assured badge to inspire trust and emphasise our genuine environmental commitments.

We take the safety of our guests and community seriously and have committed to The Cook Islands Promise, which outlines our joint commitment to protecting all Cook Islands residents and international visitors from COVID-19 through common sense social distancing and good hygiene measures.
