Excellent, only had 3 nights there so managed to unwind and then we were off again. We were picked up and on the way to resort were told of fun things to do and where to grab our shopping if required. The fridge had welcoming drinks and staples, honestly you could not wish for more it took the strain out...

From the moment we stepped into our Villa we were smiling! It is the most beautiful place and managed by such kind people, so eager to meet your every need. Everyday in the villa we opened all the doors and let the breezes surround us. The private pool was our favorite thing and the total privacy so unusual and appreciated....

My new wife and i could not have had a better experience in Rarotonga, it was everything we had hoped for and more. The guys at Sea Change are professional, friendly and run a tight ship. We spent 10 days in Villa #5, the villa its self is well appointed and very clean and quite modern. From the first night,...

Although the reason we chose Sea Change Villas was because of the outstanding reviews it had on Trip Advisor, to be honest I did not expect it to be as good as the reviews said. But it was truly excellent in every aspect. The villa we were in (No 7) was modern, very well equipped with everything you would want...

We recently had a wonderful week in Villa #1 at Sea Change. We would highly recommend Sea Change for a stay on Rarotonga. Our villa was clean, well equipped and includes a private pool. Location is almost exactly half way around the island from the town centre so nothing is very far away. Although adjacent to the road, there was...

We have been fortunate over our 40 years together to travel the world. I can say few places have made us feel at home as much as Sea Change. I travelled to Raro in the mid 80's on business so I had some insight into the destination and its culture. My husband and I made our booking rather last minute...

Thank you for your wonderful and detailed review! You will have seen many changes on the island since your first visit in the '80s but then as you said - some things here never change (but the charm of the island remains much the same as it did back then). We hope to see you back "home" at Sea Change...

As a general rule I don't give negative reviews. Often a bad experience is a one off or things just aren't how you like it but others may not care. So if I don't like a place I generally will simply not review it. However I cannot abide liars, cheats or those that deceive. So I have given two negative...

We spent nearly a week at Sea Change and thoroughly glad we did. The local knowledge of the staff in helping guide and advise re the cross island walk, cultural evenings, game fishing and restaurants was excellent , as was the pick up and drop off arrangement with several excellent beach side restaurants. I would stay there again

To be honest I'm tempted here to say some nasty and negative things if only to ensure that when next in Rarotonga this incredible place isn't booked solid. Can't do it though, Sea Change Villas along with staff Beverly and Steph are just amazing. The accommodation is just gorgeous, the setting breathtaking and the service from the team just priceless....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you’re looking for a romantic escape or a family break you’ll experience the perfect holiday in a setting that simply is breathtaking. Sea Change Villas is nestled discreetly on the southern side of Rarotonga, on its own secluded white sandy beach and turquoise clear blue lagoon which extends more than a hundred metres to the reef and then slopes steeply to deep water. The resort offers guests the choice of nine spacious one, two and three bedroom villas. The beachfront villas all enjoy stunning lagoon and outer reef views whilst the lagoon view and executive lagoon view villas are set amongst lush tropical gardens surrounded by breathtaking lagoon and reef views and majestic mountains. All villas offer a perfect blend of modern comfort and casually elegantly appointed Polynesian architectural accommodation. The villas feature a super bed with en-suited bathrooms. The bathrooms come well equipped with tiled showers large enough for two (double shower rose), Italian basin, toilet, a bidet is also included in the beachfront villas. Our two bedroom villas have en suites to both bedrooms. The lounge area has a complete home theatre system consisting of DVD, full surround sound stereo, flat screen TV and a selection of DVD movies available at no charge from reception. There is a fully self contained kitchen with all the amenities one would expect in this calibre of accommodation including dishwasher, gas hobs and convection/ microwave oven. Floors throughout are Italian porcelain, and all artwork is local and has been hand painted and commissioned exclusively for our villas. Each villa has its own completely private swimming pool. The decks on the lagoon side reach within a metre or so of the high tide mark, while the gardens and vegetation add to the wonderful tropical atmosphere of the executive lagoon view villas. Stand up paddle boards, kayaks, snorkelling gear, bicycles, private orientation for all our guests, private VIP car airport transfers, welcome flower ei’s, and a start up breakfasts are all provided on a complimentary basis. Fishing, paddling, sailing, diving, swimming, safari tours, cross island guided tours, off road quad biking and glass bottom boating are just some of the activities that abound in this tropical paradise. No matter how you choose to fill your days and nights one thing is certain, you’ll leave feeling rested and above all determined to return. ... more   less
