Expertise + Experience = Your Effortless Wedding in Paradise

At Royale Takitumu our Wedding Planning team has been planning weddings in Rarotonga for many years. No problem is too big or detail too small to ensure we get it just right on your special day. Every wedding we arrange is customized to suit your specific requirements, so you know that your wedding will truly be special.

Mi’i, our Wedding Planner, will accompany you to the Registry Office to apply for your marriage license, help you pick the perfect location for your ceremony, and ultimately take all of the stress and hassle out of your wedding.

They’re one of many couples who chose to combine this idyllic location and our wedding planning expertise to create an incredible never-to-be-forgotten wedding in Rarotonga. A Rarotonga wedding combines the magic of a tropical holiday with a life-long treasured memory. Instead of the usual planning and stress associated with getting married, a wedding in Rarotonga ensures your special day is one of complete pampering, relaxation and enjoyment, for the happy couple and all of their guests.

Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding for just the two of you, or a larger group of special family and friends to share your big day, the staff at Royale Takitumu will ensure a seamless, stress-free Rarotonga wedding to remember.

Choose from a ceremony on the beach, by the lagoon, under a palm tree, in the gardens, around the pool or in a local church; whichever location you choose, your wedding photos will be framed by blue skies, a shimmering sea and expressions of happiness on the faces of everyone involved.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Royale Takitumu for 7 nights. We had honeymoon villa #3. All the beach front villas have spectacular views of the reef and lagoon and great snorkeling. The patios are about 30 feet from the beach. The best part is that Amber, Mi’i, and the staff really care. Some may feel that the lack of a restaurant is downside, but at least one restaurant provides pickup service. We decided that sunset dinners on our own patio were much more romantic and fun than heading out to a restaurant.

The fresh Ahi and steaks available at Wigmores were great. We found it nice and in keeping with the private villa concept that there is no roadside “Royale Takitumu” sign. We had a great time and highly recommend the Royale Takitumu for a relaxing holiday. We certainly will return when we come to Rarotonga. We especially enjoyed the kindnesses and attention given us by Amber and her family. Thanks.
