Wow !! The Nautilus Rarotonga has an amazing tranquil atmosphere, beautiful gardens & pleasant staff What a wonderful & relaxing massage with Vara’s healing hands. Thank you Vara, you are very special A real treat & highlight of our Rarotonga holiday, Pina coladas beside the infinity pool for afters. Magical vistas beside the pool & bar area. Highly recommend ❤️

My friend Chrissy and I had an amazing relaxing massage each with our new Fijian friend!! What a fabulous experience - we both highly recommend this spa - highly professional and beautiful surroundings. The infinity pool was wonderful and the Pina Coladas were the best!!! Thank you Nautilus staff - we will be back and the next time we will be booking in to stay

I visited Vara at the Nautilus spa for some new shellac nail polish, where all the staff were delightful. A lovely pleasant relaxed chat and beautiful nails again, she did an expert job, carefully, you are in safe hands here. The surroundings look amazing, I unfortunately had not time to explore. Highly recommended, bit expensive just for nails, perhaps a massage if ever another time 🌞 in that beautiful part of the world, sadly unlikely.

Wow amazing deep tissue massage and facial. Vara you have magic hands, muscle tension vanished. Will definitely be back if travel to Rarotonga in future. Very clean tidy and peaceful surroundings. Happy to recommend.

We recently stayed at Nautilus for 9 nights with our 3 girls. The welcoming was warm and service fantastic. Nothing was too difficult and Sally and her team went to great lengths to make our stay feel special, including helping our 9 year old Lily celebrate her birthday. The rooms were spacious clean and very comfortable. The pool and water sports were convenient and the spa treatments and spa facilities very relaxing and professional. Would come back again.

I didn't stay in the hotel but I was given a spa treatment as a gift and it was an amazing experience. Thank you Vasa for the massage. The room was very peaceful and you really made me feel at ease and comfortable straight away. Also my back aches disappeared. I'll definitely book in again the next time I come over.

I managed to get a booking for a treatment on my last day in Rarotonga. The spa facilities were very relaxing and private. Vara was the best and I’ll definitely be going back next year and booking with Vara

Stayed for 9 days in room 6 ocean front with plunge pool. Lovely views of the sea but with privacy from the beach from palm trees. Being in room 6 you're right by the pool area so can be a bit noisy depending on who is there. It didnt cause any issue for us. Restaurant is great with pool and lagoon views. Staff very friendly. Dinner and lunch menu is very good. Breakfast is also good with a selection of hot meals plus a buffet - but a little slow. Coffee not so good but theres a machine in your room which is pretty good. Lovely beach for a long walk. Good snorkelling around the small island accessible by walking, swimming or kyaking/paddleboarding. Room was very clean and well kept, spacious and a lovely large bathroom.and outdoor shower. Only downside was you're on the windy side of the island. We had a few very windy days 24-30km/hr and not much respite on your deck if ocean front. We had a small car and took off to Blackrock on the leeward side for calm snorkeling and lying on the beach. Summary: beautiful, well run resort with great staff and location (just a bit windy)

We got married at the Nautilus and stayed with their sister resort, muri beach resort and had the best time imaginable. We came away from the day married, which was what we paid for, but then got so much more bang for our buck by using one if their wedding packages. Our day went off without a hitch, apart from when my husband left his phone with the music on it behind, but you would never even notice as Erin from Nautilus swooped in and saved the day! The food was outstanding and we never saw the staff without a kind smile.

Loved this hotel. Splurge and get one of the rooms on the ocean. . .it was amazing! Very comfortable, clean and quiet. I loved sitting outside and walking down the beach. There is a great museum just down the street that shouldn't be missed. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and the staff was wonderful. The pool area is stunning.
