We had a great time at Ariki bungalows. The room was attractive, the bed was comfortable, and the location was great - just a short walk into Muri. Jules and Kave looked after us very well. They are fabulous hosts who clearly love their lives in Rarotonga and want to make sure their guests have a wonderful experience there. Fantastic coffee too! We can't wait for our next visit.

Cute bungalows set amongst palm trees and only 1 minute walk to Muri beach. Great modern bathrooms, and the unit looks just like the photos. Jules and Kave are super friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. I'll be back :)

Jules and Kave were wonderful hosts. They were very flexible with the check in and check out and were helpful hosts. We can definitely recommend Jule's massage and also their delicious coffee in Muri.

Great little self contained bungalows (perfect for couples) with a very functional kitchenette that was perfect for making breakfast and enjoying on the patio. The units themselves are elevated a bit and always seem to catch the breeze making air conditioning unnecessary; we were very comfortable sleeping at night. Julie and Kave were very friendly, and were a huge help organizing activities, or providing advice on restaurants etc.... They're tour company, Ariki Adventures, has some very fun activities, led by awesome guides, including stand up night paddle boarding which we consider a must do for anyone visiting Muri Beach. It is definitely worth stopping by their shop for a cold brew coffee and to peruse the many activities they offer. We would definitely recommend staying here and booking many of your adventure activities with them.

We had the most wonderful time staying with Julie and Kave. The bungalows are beautiful and only a 10 minute stroll to Muri beach where you can find plenty of things to do. Julie and Kave were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble and overall they were just lovely people to hang out with. Would recommend to anyone this is the best place to stay in Muri. Also having driven around the whole island trying coffee, Jules and Kave's is by far the best! Thanks for having us, Jeff and Lucy

We had a really lovely time staying here. Jules, Kave and Tama (the top dog) are warm, upbeat hosts with an obvious passion for the island and a natural aptitude for working in tourism. The accomodation is clean and comfortable and slightly out of the "hustle and bustle" (if you can call it that) of the Muri Beach area. They have great local knowledge and are generous with sharing it. They also have lots of interesting activities you can sign up for such as night multicolour SUP, kiteboarding and underwater sea scooters which we loved - thanks Lee for a great morning out on the lagoon. And if you can, sign up for a pre-flight massage with Jules it's a perfect way to end a holiday. Thanks guys, we'll see you again I reckon. Linda & Andy.

Kia Orana!
We moved from NZ to Raro in 2014, Kave ( or KT as he likes to be known) is from Cook Island parents, and Julie (or Jules ) is originally from the UK, and we are now lucky to call Rarotonga home. We have both travelled the world and stayed in a variety of accommodation and we hope these experiences have helped us provide a spectacular place to stay and experience our beautiful Island, we are here to help you as much as we can.
KT is a kiteboarding instructor and can teach you all you need to know to be riding our beautiful lagoon. We also offer night lagoon tours on our stand up paddle boards, sea scooter lagoon or Ocean tours, glass bottom kayak and SUP fitness classes and we also have cafe in Muri where we specialise in Cold Brew Coffee and barista coffees and specials, all our tours and activities and coffee is discounted to our guests. Jules is a qualified Podiatrist and Massage Therapist, offering massage which you can also enjoy in your studio. We have a dog called Tama who enjoys sitting on our paddle boards and trying to catch (unsuccessfully) the fish in the lagoon! We love sharing stories with our guests and encourage them to join us sharing our delicious cocktail, named after, of course, Tama!
Kia Manuia
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jules and KT oh and Tama!
