We had a great time at Te Manava. The hosts, Todd and Jane were very friendly, efficient and perfect hosts. The villas are very well set up and our unit had stunning views of Muri Lagoon especially for sun up and sunset. Highly recommend Te Manama as a great place to stay on Rarotonga.

For Mother's Day 2015, my sister and I decided to spoil our Mom and my mother-in-law with a trip to the South Pacific. We cannot even put into words how amazing our trip was. In the Cook Islands, it DOES matter where you stay, and we believe we chose the best with Te Manava Luxury Villas and Spa. Of course... More

I cannot fault anything - we stayed for five nights and I wish it was more! The room had everything we needed and so,so much more! Bed was comfy, double showers were great and the kitchen (oh my gosh) I want one like that! Walking down to the beach at night-time was so romantic and we thoroughly enjoyed going out... More

The villa was beyond our expectations and the helpful service that Jane and Todd provided daily was outstanding. Nothing was too much of a problem, from recommendations for dinner to fantastic snorkelling locations. It was like one was having a get-a-way with wonderful friends in an idyllic location. Would return as soon as possible.

We Stayed 5 fantastic days at Te Manava in one of the Beachfront villa's that provided the perfect retreat, and amazing sea views. The self serving facilities were brilliant, and the management under Jane and Todd were wonderful. Highly recommend for couples wanting a break away from the work treadmill. 1😀/1😀.

We stayed in villa 5B, on the beach. Incredibly private, beautiful views. But, what sets this apart from other places we have been were our amazing hosts Jane and Todd. Anything we wanted or needed, they made it happen. We really enjoyed the private hike they arranged with Lincoln - it felt like going for a guided hike with an... More

We recently stayed in Villa 5C and found the whole experience wonderful. The island is very laid back and full of friendly people. We chose to use the local bus system to get around and absolutely loved the experience. I can't say enough about the on-site managers Jane and Todd. They constantly went out of their way to make sure... More

We spent five nights at Te Manava in a beachfront suite and can not wait to go back again. Jane and Todd are amazing hosts who made you feel at home as you walked in the door, nothing was a problem and they were always made sure to include our little one in conversations which was soo nice to have...

I also stayed at this resort and encountered the same disappointment at Blueses did. If you read the review, we were not there for a short 8 day stay. Our visit was 8 weeks, quite the difference. Satellite tv was important to us and after such a length of time we were looking forward to the advertised service. Booking under... More

Te Manava is an incredible place to stay when in Rarotonga. From the moment we arrived, Jane and Todd made us feel at home, and completely relaxed - they are amazing. Our scheduled flight from San Francisco to LAX was suddenly canceled by the airline, and so our leisurely Spring break trip turned into a stressful madhouse filled will having... More
