Top quality stay
Stunning boutique property on the lagoon in Muri. Very spacious rooms, beautifully furnished and a very good restaurant. Very friendly, welcoming staff

Rarotonga luxury holiday
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nautilus, the staff were friendly and engaging and the infinity pool a delight. The rooms were clean and comfortable but would need a kindle to read at night as the lighting is minimal. Lots of water activity gear available kayaks, sups and snorkeling gear. The location is great being right on the beach and plenty of eateries within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.

Very good 8,0
Beautiful but could use improvement
We were welcomed to a beautiful room set up with fruit and champagne. We booked last minute and they were not aware we were coming so we waited a bit in the bar. The staff were nice. We saw a cockroach in our room and another couple stated the same. It’s an island we were told and it happens. We were asked to switch rooms for our last night on part of our 5 night stay. We noticed another family switched rooms too during our stay. We said we were not comfortable moving but Tatiana ended up coming to our room asking again if they provided a late check out. She looked up our flights. We felt she made their error our problem. When we arrived, we stated we were looking forward to a stress free stay. We ended up switching from room 7 to 17 but felt the room was not as nice and was near the road area. We also booked a tour with Tatiana that was 10 minutes away walking but transfers were included. I stated if it’s the last stop there and first stop back, we would like transfers given that it’s summer and going to be more dressed up. We did not want to walk in the dark as it ended late. She did not ask and booked it with no transfer. We asked when we arrived and were annoyed to find out that we would have been picked up last and dropped off first. I left my hat at the hotel and the man working the evening dropped it off at the airport. This was amazing and I was very thankful. Overall, it was a nice stay but needs more attention to be a 4.5 star hotel.
