Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked in for a couples massage, the service we got was amazing right from the start and throughout. The massage was spectacular.

Truly relaxing experience. I had a one-hour massage, followed by a one-hour facial. The staff are warm and friendly, as well as very tentative. I needed a nice, relaxing environment in which to fully relax and this ticked every box.

We did a 90min couples massage here. It was fantastic. Sinta and Mona really looked after us and we came away feeling amazing. Would highly recommend.

If you go to Rarotonga you can't miss some luxury time in the Spa.
I didn't stay at Rumours, way out of my price range, but the spa prices are reasonable and it is everything you would expect from a high quality spa service. It looks lovely, it smells lovely and the staff are lovely. The facial was the most soothing and best that I have ever had. Thank you so much Sinta.

Both me an hubby started off with a Vichy Shower Massage and reflexology session and absolutely loved the attention to detail Sinta & Sani gave. They were attentive in applying the correct pressure as we indicated in our preference sheet. The spa is small but it ads to the atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation. My daughter was booked in for some treatments as well and we had to go back for a third treatment :) as this spa treatment definitely were one of the highlights of our trip. Sinta and Sani were very accommodating when I wanted to change from a facial to a relaxation massage last minute and super friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to anyone. Vichy shower massage a definite must!!

I have returned to home and am missing Rarotonga! Beautiful island. Lovely people -- especially Sharon, the amazing therapist who provided me with one of the very best spa treatments I have ever been blessed to have.

Sharon is very special -- professional, personable, proficient, mindful, attentive, compassionate, and an all-around terrific human being. She is a talented therapist and successfully addressed the issues I discussed with her, including a number of very tenacious muscle knots!

Even before I arrived, Tara, who helped me book my appointment, and her colleagues went above and beyond for me -- graciously adjusting the time of my appointment to accommodate my changing schedule the day before. And Myrna was gracious and welcoming upon my arrival and after my spa treatment. The Rumours facilities, too, were beyond my expectations. Elegant, calming, luxurious. Perfect!

Rumours is fortunate to have Sharon as one of their massage therapists. She is truly wonderful!

I highly recommend The Waterfall Spa for anyone who is seeking relief from the stress and fatigue of a busy, fast-paced life!

My husband and I had a full massage and then a facial. Massage was okay - as was the facial. The masseuse seemed distracted and there was no 'rhythm' to proceedings. It was a bit like she was filling in time and jumped between my feet and my face like mental. Would I go back? No sorry. Nice but forgettable.

My husband and I shared a couples massage here. The massage was lovely and relaxing and they made sure to take care of me as I am pregnant. The staff were knowledgable and friendly and took account of our requests. We did have to wait around 20 minutes after our allotted start time as they were running on 'Island time'.

I booked this place for a one hour balancing facial. I arrived late as the busses on the Cook Islands run on Cook Island time, but they were extremely accommodating and did not shorten my facial at all, and did an hour anyway!

The facial was blissful and they also give you a massage during the facial. I’m usually very ticklish but this massage was just right. I felt so refreshed afterwards.

Only some minor downsides - 3% credit card surcharge so bring cash if you have enough cash. Their prices are also not advertised on their website so you will have to call to enquire. During the facial, my hair kept getting on my face so it would be great if they used a headband or head towel wrap like some other centers do to keep hair from getting on your face during the facial!
