A new standard for the Cook Islands ~ and a true slice of South Seas history
Steeped in island history, the Tiare Taporo ‘Lime Blossom’ Villa Estate is your resort within a resort.
Providing an unsurpassed level of luxury, total privacy, incredible expansiveness and extensive range of exclusive facilities, this is the Cook Islands’ only villa estate, unique in the South Seas.
Tiare Taporo Villa Estate is named in honour of a legendary sea captain who was instrumental in introducing renowned authors Robert Dean Frisbie and Tom Neale to one another, leading to Tom Neale’s account of his hermetic existence on the fabled isle of Suwarrow, “An Island to Oneself”.
Upon the Villa’s verandah is where the good sea captain entertained these men of islands with his racy raconteuring and lime-muddled rums.
When you stay at Tiare Taporo Villa Estate, you not only enjoy an unparalleled level of luxury, you also become a part of the Villa’s rich and romantic history, right here in the very heart of the idyllic South Pacific.
In a moment of reverie, it’s as though you can still hear these three island characters out on the verandah, engaged in animated conversation about their great shared passion – the romance of islands.
