We stayed at Te Manava for almost a week. It was comfortable and nice enough and we would probably stay there again, especially as it is virtually impossible to find other upmarket accommodation in Rarotonga that allows children. On the upside: - Spacious rooms - Private pool (though freezing cold) - Cooking facilities - Able to use Pacific Resort beach... More

No words can explain how fabulous Temanava is, it exceeded our expectations. Its such a breath of fresh air to have luxury in a gorgeous location with such a high level of service, after the bad service we received prior. Temanava has everything you could ask for, its top class which is a reflection of great management together with the... More

Had a Balinese style massage at the Manava Spa. Very relaxing. We had a couple's massage and the therapists were very friendly and seemed quite experience. The facilities were tranquil and very clean. Would recommend!

We plan on returning one day - soon hopefully. As other reviewers have said the complex is stunning, well maintained and quiet. Jane and Todd go the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need and are well informed on where to eat, and things to do. Take you own nespresso pods if you are coffee drinkers, there...

We are experienced and busy travellers who, every now and then, need a break. We were lucky to be steered towards Te Manava with its great facilities and service. We found the location good and enjoyed the walks to other attractions at Muri (not to mention the LBV bakery). The canoes out the back are a great way to explore... More

My family and I (Mother In-Law, Husband and 2 year old Twins) had the best time at Te Manava. Warm friendly welcome and beautiful accommodation! We stayed in the Presidential Villa, which was extremely luxurious! The Villa was well equipped and the location couldn't have been more perfect. Eatery's and Attractions/Activities right outside your doorstep. Jane and Todd were wonderful... More

We recently stayed at Te Manava and got married at Pacific Resort. We truly can't fault our experience. We stayed in a beachfront villa and woke up to a picture perfect sunrise every morning. It felt very private and relaxed. Our villa and the amenities were spotless. The service from villa managers Jane and Todd was a cut above the... More

We loved our stay at Te Manava (villa 5C). Muri beach is an ideal location and the quality of the accommodation and service was outstanding. A very relaxing holiday. We found the best food at LBV Bakery very close to the villas and it is worth having dinner there. Also went to Trader Jacks and Tamarind Tree. Tamarind was popular... More

Te Manava is a wonderful place which held up easily to the 5 star rating, especially with our hosts Jane and Todd looking after us as if we were special guests which was appreciated. Our family of 5 stayed in the Ultimate 3 bedroom unit which had direct access to the beach, total privacy incl a rear courtyard and private... More
