Seriously guys, this place is incredible!!! It´s not big place like other resort, but it is what makes Sunhaven such a beautiful place :-) Quiet, friendly, everything clean. If I´ll come back - this is the best decision where to stay. Thank you all of you, you made my holidays unforgettable. Jana

Patti and Dennis spared no effort in making our stay amazing. The location of the bungalows is superb and the beach views uninterrupted. The accommodation was spotless; staff friendly; and Patti's banana pancakes stole the show!! This is the best holiday that we have ever had in the most beautiful location. Strong words for well seasoned travellers but all true.... More

We discovered Sunhaven in the Lonely Planet and then reviewed Trip Advisors comments. It was peoples' comments and how quickly Dennis replied to my first email that convinced me to book our holiday. Not being of a suspicious nature but always believing that there are 2 sides to a story, I was wondering if the numerous positive comments would live... More

Well all the other reviews say how lovely the place is, and I do not disagree. We stayed in the 'no frills' bungalow and it was excellent, even in hot season we had no need for air con, the housekeeping staff are exceptionally attentive; the best part was the sun seemed to set right outside the window! As a comparison,... More

Lovely self catering bungalows with veranda, great ocean views (sunset!!!). The little resort was spotless and it seemed the staff did not even WANT to sit back and relax. Every single one of them was very caring and it was highly appreciated that Patti dropped by for a chat now and then. The beach right in front of the bungalows... More

If you're looking for the quintessential South Pacific holiday, look no further then Sunhaven.

Me and my partner stayed here for a week and found it a great choice. The staff were so friendly - particularly the house-keepers who serviced our room daily! The room was so clean when we arrived and the staff do all they can to keep it that way and bug-proof. The room was very spacious and had great kitchen... More

Kia Orana Dannijean, It would appear that we met most of your needs and you both had a really good time enjoying our property. The complimentary DVD library sure comes in handy on a rainy night.

After 2 amazing stays at Sunhaven - 6 years apart, we believe it is one of the best self-cater beach accommodations in the South Pacific. Dennis, Patti, Shari, Ali and the rest of the team are second to none. The bungalows are perfect and clean as a whistle. The pool makes for a relaxing break after snorkelling right off the... More
