Set on yet another beautiful palm fringed beach in Rarotonga, Avana offers a family apartment right on the water that is clean, the apartment is reasonably furnished, is self catering and priced in the very reasonable space. Frankly mid-range hotels in Raro are a lot more expensive and offer very little added value. It has a refreshing pool, a pier... More

Pleasant, well-equiped apartments right on the water at the northern end of Muri lagoon. There are picnic tables in the sandy area just in front of the apartments. Great if you are the ones using them but can be disturbing if others sit there making a lot of noise. There is not much privacy and the walls between some apartments... More

We have just returned from nine days staying in these apartments. They were great for our family - the pool and the jetty were particularly popular with the children. We self catered and found the apartments worked well.

We had a great stay at Avana Waterfront Apartments. 5 of us stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment which had plenty of room, tidy, simple and everything you needed for a self contained apartment. Water views from the upstairs bedroom and only a couple of steps to the private Jetty which you can jump off and swim in the beautiful... More

Family of five (3 teenage kids) had a great holiday at Avana. Plenty of space in the 3 bedroom apartment and the proximity of the pool & beach made it an ideal location. Unlimited access to the kayaks was a big bonus and the snorkelling was out of this world. Thanks to our hosts for a fantastic experience and I'd... More

We have just returned from our 2nd stay at Avana Waterfront Apartments and again were not disappointed. If you want the simple pleasures in life this is a great place to stay. What brought us back and will bring us back again is the beautiful setting, (the jetty a bonus), the fact you are away from the tourist strip (Muri)... More

Our family had a week in The 3 bedroom apartment and found the accommodation and location great. Desiree, Randy and the team were absolutely lovely and super helpful. We had two young children and this location, with its privacy, beach access right out our door, and the jetty for fish watching and feeding was perfect. We loved our stay and... More

I have to commend the staff who were pleasant, welcoming and helpful. The complex, due to it's location is surprisingly private, and the jetty was great to feed the fish from. Unfortunately, that's is good as it gets. I say this for these reasons. - insufficient cutlery and crockery with practically no serving dishes or bowls, making self-catering difficult. -... More

We stayed at Avana Waterfront Apartment (formerly Avana Condos) several times during the past 12 years. It has not changed (thankfully) but has been carefully maintained. It is really peaceful, quiet, a little away from the touristy strip of Muri beach, but with Muri beach easily accessible by foot (20mn). Our children adore swimming from the jetty or in the... More
