Loved: Super clean - believe all the other reviews, this place is spotless. Quiet - no roosters crowing, no dogs barking, no traffic, just the sound of waves to send you to a blissful sleep. Room was large with a full kitchen and everything needed to self-cater. Nice deck to watch the sun set. Easy distance to main town and... More

My husband and I stayed for a few days and loved the beautiful scenery right outside our bungalow. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Not a great beach for wading and swimming though because there is more reef than sand on that side of the island. Overall though, if you want peace and quiet and beautiful sunsets, this is... More

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

Kia Orana Conor O, Thank you for your fabulous feedback. It’s pleasing to hear that you were both amazed with our ‘beach paradise’ and that you found your room and amenities all you needed for your six nights with us. Yes the vista from the balcony is certainly a sight to remember, especially at sunset and for early morning breakfast... 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

Kia Orana Shonaandgrant, Thank you for your helpful review and high recommendation. I’m happy that you found Sunhaven the perfect place to stay for your first Rarotongan experience. Yes the beach on our side of the island (west) is definitely less crowded than Muri. And being on the leeward side we don’t get the strong wind that Muri does which... 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

Having to stay in the Cooks for two works for work purposes the usual web search was conducted.
