I am not one for writing reviews unless extremely dissatisfied or very happy. I recently spent 8 days and nights staying at the Sunhaven Beach Bungalows in Raro. The place is set on a nice beach looking out onto the ocean. We had a great view from our Bungalow. It has all the facilities you require to enjoy your holiday... More

Our second visit to Rarotonga and our 1st time at the Sunhaven Bungalows and we were both amazed. Beautiful clean and relaxing beach feel, with all the amenities. Large open plan lounge/kitchen, decent size bathroom, decent sized bedroom and very comfortable bed. Wood/bamboo furniture which was in a great condition and the kitchen was well looked after and provided us... More

This was our third visit to Rarotonga and we would never stay anywhere else that Sunhaven Beach Bungalows. 9 glorious nights of nothing but relaxation! The bungalow was, as always, cleaned everyday to perfection with beautiful fresh flowers. Great snorkling gear to use and thanks to Dennis for organising our scooter for us before our arrival. We had the best... More

We stayed at Sunhaven the 1st week of July 14, Sunhaven was the Perfect Place for us to stay. We hired scooters to get around island from just up the road, Not fair from anywhere we wanted to go, and also abit less crowded/ congested than the Muri beach part of the Island. Very nice, friendly helpful staff, Pattie and... More

This was our third holiday in Rarotonga and our first without our teenage children. Sunhaven is by far the best place we have stayed at on the Island so far. The bungalows are maintained to a very high standard cleaned meticulously 6 times per week. The owners and staff are never far away and are always ready to help or... More

This was our first visit to Rarotonga, we had researched various establishments on the internet and via Trip Advisor and decided that Sunhaven was worthy of checking out. This place is truelly a hidden gem amongst the many and varied accommodation options on Rarotonga. The bungalows are mere steps from the inground pool and the lagoon itself. The bungalows are...

Nice very clean units and a place which although not resort style cannot be faulted. Very helpful staff and owners who will try to accommodate all requests. Beach not the best but good swimming pool. Short walk for better snorkelling area. Yes, we would probably stay again. If staying for a week or more I suggest buying a telecom sim... More

Kia Orana Louis_De_Camp, Thank you for your review and opinion. We're glad you found your room nice and clean and no fault with Sunhaven. We always try to satisfy our guests requests whenever we can. While it's not on the beachfront the Garden Bungalow is our most private room with, as you say, a peep of the beach. Hope to... More

Having to stay in the Cooks for two works for work purposes the usual web search was conducted. Trip adviser had so many people recommending the Sunhaven that I felt compelled to book on line for a fortnight. The Sunhaven is located about 15 minutes driving from Avarua. On arrival I was met by Patti, a regular human dynamo, and... More

This was our first stay at Sunhaven. The wonderful bungalows, situated just steps from the lagoon, were spacious and clean. Hammocks, beach loungers, kayaks, snorkels, BBQ and a lovely pool were made available to us. Ali and the team kept our rooms serviced to an exceptionally high standard. This was the best place to spend with our (adult) family, especially... More

Kia Orana drandbak, Eighth visit to Sunhaven and counting huh. How nice it must be having your very own "Pacific escape" whenever you need a relaxing break from life's toils and wows. We will await your 9th unforgettable stay in the not too distant future. Thanks a lot for your review. Kia manuia, Dennis, Patti, Shari, Sandra, Sheekal and Ronald. More
