My husband, myself and adult son stayed for 2 weeks at Sunhaven in early August and loved everything about it. The best feature of the property is the location. It is superb, absolute beachfront and we had the added bonus of seeing whales from our deck on most days. Sunhaven is also very quiet and peaceful and with the pool...

Kia Orana Trish V, I’m so happy we ticked all your boxes. How many places in the world can you see whales from your deck? That on its own makes Sunhaven a very special place. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and the many highlights you mentioned. We hope you get to come back one day....

We would like to thank Dennis, Patti & the boys for making our first trip to Rarotonga a memorable one. The bungalows & chalets are impeccably clean, fresh towels daily & Patti's attention to detail inside the bungalows & the beautifully kept grounds is unrelenting, Dennis' advice on everything about the island (including where to have my new tattoo) was...

Kia Orana wbantsam, I’m happy your first trip to Rarotonga was so very enjoyable and memorable. Hopefully there will be more trips in the future. I trust the tat has healed up nicely and I imagine you’re showing it off to your mates by now. Yes not only is our water pressure very good, combined with the UV treatment system...

We live in NY and chose Sunhaven for a complete unwind after a stressful and exhausting 1st quarter. We stayed there for a week mid March.

Sorry for the late review. Hubby and I stayed here from Xmas Eve to New Years Eve in Bungalow 2 and we had a fabulous time. The staff are friendly, discreet but also very approachable. The bungalows are kept spotlessly clean and we were a few steps from the beach. Hubby enjoyed lazing in the hammocks in the afternoon and...

Kia Orana lucystarbuck, Gosh Xmas seems like it was only yesterday! Yes there’s nothing quite like a lazy afternoon in a hammock made possible by NO KIDS to disturb the peace and quiet. Thank you for remembering to review your stay with us. Kia Manuia, Dennis, Patti, Ali and Rouru.

There are lots of bungalows on Rarotonga, but Sunhaven is a true jewel. The gardens are beautiful, all the amenities are so well maintained, staff very helpful in looking after your needs, and a great location. Really enjoyed the peacefulness and relaxed atmosphere of an adults only, smaller resort. Took tons of sunset photos, the pool so clean and refreshing....
