Te Manava is the perfect mix of privacy but near the action. We had an unobstructed view of the lagoon the whole week, and were able to walk to all of the restaurants in Muri. The owners are so generous to give you rides as well, even though the walk is very doable. Loved the beachfront villa - perfect spot... More

We were greeted by Jane who immediately made us feel right at home. The Luxury Villas are beautiful. We stayed in ultimate beachfront villa #1. The concept of this 5 star is great with as much privacy as you desire. We were able to kayak, snorkel everyday! Jane had fantastic recommendations for dinning. Our stay was for 12 days and... More

This was one of the best properties we have ever stayed at. Each Villa is a built like a large studio suite. We had a pool villa suite, the least expensive, with a private deck with a small pool and a nicely appointed private patio. It was a one minute walk to the nice beach, which had kayaks and paddle...

Our stay at Te Manava was an absolute dream! Jane, Todd and Teina are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with excitement and genuine care. We stayed in a gorgeous private pool villa, and it was unlike any other accommodation on the island. Beautifully furnished, private, great layout and an... More

What can I say? This place was perfect for my wife and I to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We stayed in Villa 2. This villa has direct access to the beach. I've included pictures of Villa 2.

We had a week here recently for our wedding. The villas are lovely as described and personally we prefer the privacy that comes with not having daily servicing. The staff were all incredibly helpful and accommodating when required. We had a lot of friends and family staying around Muri for the wedding and it was easy for them to pop... More

Stay in one of their luxury, private villas. All amenities provided - pool, BBQ, 2 fridges, oven, stove etc. and right on the beach front. This was a beautiful place to stay, extremely relaxing, and after a scorching hot day perfect coming back to an air-conditioned hotel. $800NZD per night is not a lot between 6 people for a 3-room...

We stayed at Te Manava Ultimate Beachfront Villa in October this year for 8 nights. Found it very hard to leave at the end of our stay, it truly is a little piece of paradise! We chose Te Manava for it's seclusion and privacy and certainly weren't disappointed. Close enough to Muri Village or Pacific Resort but far enough to... More

Our first trip to Raratonga and our ultimate beachfront Villa at Te Manava was luxurious with every thing you could possibly need for a peaceful, relaxing and private stay in this island paradise.
