TE MANAVA LUXURY VILLAS & SPA
Muri Beach, Rarotonga, Cook
Islands

Our Thoughts on Te Manava Luxury Villas and Spa
The location is perfect; on the southern end of Muri Beach just 20 minutes drive from Rarotonga Airport and 15 minutes from the main town, Avarua. If you have ever walked the length of Muri Beach at Sunrise, (we would recommend you rise early  and do that at least once, even if you are not staying on this side of the island), you will note that the Muri Beach Club and The Pacific Resort are located near the northern end of the beach and that at the southern end of the beach and Muri Lagoon there is a small promontory of land marked by a scattering of natural black rocks in the perfect white sand and on that low promontory the 5 Star Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa is located. For guests staying at Te Manava, it is a mere 15-minute walk to Muri Village and its Restaurants, cafés, food-markets, etc.

Te Manava is a very welcome addition to the range of Resort properties in Rarotonga, in that it fully delivers its promise of 5 Star fully self-contained accommodation at a 5 Star location.

One may well wonder how a property could possibly rate so high when there is no restaurant on site to provide meals or when daily housekeeping/maid service is not included. Well, the answer to that is simply this - should guests decide to have meals and/or daily housekeeping/maid service, these services will readily be provided at a pre-set price from the Guest Services Menu.  Continental breakfasts can be delivered to your Villa and five-course dinners can be prepared on site by an executive chef.  Having a Guest Services Menu is a brilliant concept.  It provides the option of taking a holiday in a superb villa with full self-catering facilities in a wonderful location at one rate, then giving you the option to include any services you may decide to add.  This ensures that you are not paying for something you, personally, may not necessarily need to enjoy a fantastic holiday. In a way the concept is similar to that which some airlines now offer in economy class – seat only, seat with bag, seat with bag and entertainment etc.  It’s the same seat; you just decide what to add to suit your own requirements. At Te Manava, it’s not an economy class seat you start with; it’s a superb 5 Star Villa!

The Base Rate includes:
Exclusive access to your private Rarotonga villa & pool
Full kitchen & laundry facilities (for your personal use)
Kayaks, sun loungers & beach towels.

Available from the Guest Services Menu (at an additional charge):
Daily housekeeping service

One of the many features of a stay at Te Manava is their Personal Concierge Service.  Soon after your arrival at The Resort, you will be met by your Personal Concierge who will be at your service throughout your stay.

Te Manava is a heavenly place for a honeymoon!

Your Accommodation Options
As you enter Te Manava Luxury Villas and Spa from the round-island road and pass the Concierge Villa, the two villas on your left of the driveway are the 3 bedroom Garden Retreat Villas.

The driveway widens out as you pass the stand-alone Spa building and directly ahead of you is the 3 bedroom Presidential Beachfront Villa and to the right there are two, 2 bedroom Ultimate Beachfront Villas. There is a 3 Bedroom Ultimate Beachfront Villa on the left-hand boundary of the Resort.

A separate building on the beachfront houses the 3 Beachfront Villa Suites and the land-side of this building is the location of the 2 Pool Villa Suites and the 2 Bedroom Ultimate Pool Villa, all of which face inward towards their individual pool courtyards. 

At Te Manava, a “Villa Suite” is open-plan and either on the beach front with beach views (Beachfront Villa Suite) or inward-facing into their private courtyard pool area (Pool Villa Suite).

A “Villa” will have 1, 2 or 3 separate bedrooms – “Beach” Villas promise a beachfront location, “Pool” Villas are inward facing to their respective private courtyard pools.

There is a minimum 3 consecutive nights stay policy at Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa.
