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.

Stayed three nights in this new resort on the beach. We had villa no2 which overlooks the beach. Extremely large two story and fantastically equiped. Just like your own house. Everything spotless. Massive bed. Just one thing could do with a table in main room for dinner etc instead of a small sit up bar. Bus stops outside door, convenience store 150 m down the road. Also Villis Burger joint. Great cheap burgers and Pizzas

Stop what you are doing. Dont hesitate...Ocean Escape Resort & Spa is exactly what you are looking for. Book it now. Believe the reviews, this place is unbelievable. My booking was rather short notice...as i was already on the island...but wanted to..."escape" to a quiet haven. Luxury, relaxation and kindness is how i would describe my stay here. Elaine and Barry both went out of their way to ensure i had the best stay. The owners have put so much thought and care into creating this island paradise. From the breakfast baskets, fruit juice, champagne, high quality amenities, umbrellas (for those brief island showers) to the most exquisitely comfortable mattresses with beautiful crisp linen. Then there is the private little beach. I went down with my book but never got a chance to read as there were so many whales. But wait...then there is the spa, where i enjoyed the bliss of two massages with fragrant hand crafted oils made locally. Those ladies make you feel comfortable so matter what shape you are. I came looking for a place to recharge and I got that and more. Thank you team Ocean Escape Resort and Spa.

Boutique modern, clean and comfortable. What an awesome resort to enjoy! Great salt water pool, comfy bed and generous welcome breakfast basket, champagne and all. Was a great way to end our honeymoon stay in Rarotonga. Staff are so lovely too 🥰 with great tips on the local burger joint, and travel logistics.

Barry & Jade have thought of everything when they set up this resort. The villas are beautiful & very comfortable & oh the pool filled with filtered ocean water is so clean & a great temperature. Best of all is its an Adult's only resort. Elaine on reception was wonderful & will do anything for you. Thank you also to the Bali girls who gave us a super massage.

5 stars out of 5 stars. We stayed here in December 2023. The Ocean Escape Resort & Spa Rarotonga resort is clean, cosy and comfortable right on the beach. Located a short distance away from the main town so you get peace and quiet and being an Adults Only Resort for over 16 year olds mean you can relax without unwanted noise or kids crying and screaming. The villa’s are clean with modern bathroom and kitchen facilities, with excellent design to capture ocean breezes and room to move with indoor and outdoor lounges. Why stay in another resort that is basically just a hotel bedroom when you can stay here and have a little spacious villa on the beach. The resort pool is the cleanest resort pool we have ever come across. The concept is environmentally sustainable and practical for an island using the clean natural ocean waters surrounding the island of Rarotonga. Love this pool and the hammocks and living coral inside the pool. Also has the best internet reception out of the 3 resorts we stayed in for our holiday to the Cook Islands as they have Starlink. Hardly no one has satellite in the Cook Islands. Cook Islands phone and internet reception is not very good outside this resort. But 13 out of 10 stars goes towards the mattress on the beds. Quality premium mattress that was the most comfortable and cleanest mattress we have slept on in all of our holidays in Australia and Overseas. We even took the covers off the bed to get a photo of the label of the mattress. This will be our next mattress purchase. Standout performance from the staff. They are more then happy to assist with a smile for any request to make sure you have a fantastic holiday and a relaxing time. The welcoming breakfast basket is very thoughtful for you to whip up what you like in the kitchen. Great to have a full size fridge that keeps items super cold in the Cook Island weather and a dishwasher so you can relax on your holiday. The owners Barry and Jade are the most welcoming, humble and friendly people in Rarotonga, absolutely lovely people. Elaine in reception is a lovely and thoughtful soul willing to assist any visitors to the resort. Had a massage in the Spa with the lovely lady February who gave an excellent massage and a fantastic foot massage. Would recommend a trip to their day spa. We would definitely stay here again on our return to the Cook Islands without hesitation and would recommend this resort for a holiday to anyone. Thankyou for a fantastic stay. Brad & Jacquie. We hope to return in a couple of years and visit BJ’s Bar for a relaxing drink on the beach with you all again.

This is a beautiful property well situated on the island. No swimming beach but Muri beach is close by. The villas are situated around the lovely pool. The friendly staff is available to help with tours, restaurant bookings or other helpful information. I highly recommend this property.

I can’t thank Jade, Barry and Elaine enough for the wonderful experience we had at the newly opened Ocean Escape Resort and Spa. The small and private resort is well located, within minutes to Muri and just across the road from Villi’s burgers. The villas are equipped with everything you could possibly need including the latest technology ie usb port chargers in the walls, wifi and Netflix/tv, air con, touch lighting and quality fittings throughout. The Balinese massages at the Spa were sensational. Breakfast was provided and consisted of eggs, cheeses, bread, juice, fruit and a bottle of bubbly upon arrival. The villa with direct views and access to the beach was amazing with regular whale sightings. The resort is very quiet and relaxing with a lovely pool with ocean water complete with sun lounges surrounding the pool and hammocks in the water. There is a barbecue available for a cook up if you so wish. The staff are most attentive and made us feel so welcome and at home. We are looking forward to coming back and trying out BJ’s Tapas Bar and soaking in those amazing views.
