We spent a wonderful week in villa 3 (on the beach). We picked the Cook Islands over other locations as we were hoping to get all of the beauty with smaller crowds. Sea Change absolutely delivered heaven on earth. We found the amenities in the villa to be pretty much perfect for our needs (loved that there were extras like... More

We had the villa with oceanview and personal swimming pool. Never had such an amazing holiday with such beautiful views. Waking up to the ocean every morning rain or shine was the absolute best. Worth the extra cost per night. We stayed for one week and had a combination of downtime in the villa and exploring the island. We stayed... More

Our time at Sea Change Villas was absolutely wonderful. It was everything we hoped and dreamed it to be plus some! The accommodations were great, the staff was amazing, and it was great to have access to water toys. We definitely didn't want to leave, but we felt refreshed when that time came. Maybe one day we'll be lucky enough... More

Back at Sea Change for our fourth visit, we really can't see ourselves staying anywhere else on the Island. It has everything you need to be a real home away from home with the bonus of picturesque views and a team who look after you from the moment you arrive with your first champagne until you wave goodbye.

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 freshwater 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
