Close to Muri Beach, this apartment was a welcome haven in all weathers. Clean, well thought and built with decent materials. Access to toys, passionate staff, secure and great location. Beaut plunge-pool, decent bathroom and a Nespresso coffee machine. The spa was a proper treat, and the concierge team made the stay.

We had a 5 day stay in a Beachfront Villa at the beginning of April. We were there to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and Te Manava did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to get a complimentary bottle of wine and 2 straw sun hats also. Jane, Todd amd Teina were all very nice and accomodating. They gave us...

We absolutely loved our stay at Te Manava. We stayed in a beachfront villa, it was luxurious, private and had stunning views of the lagoon. We were well looked after by the friendly staff. They organised shuttles, dinner reservations and we got complimentary wine and a snorkel cruise. One night we even got a private chef to cook a BBQ...

Very nice. Very friendly staff. Felt very relaxed and cared for. Foot massage pre facial was a cute little bonus. Both my partner and I felt welcomed and relaxed during our visit. Would recommend to others.

Great place with helpful service. The spa was nice but it was too soft for a deep tissue massage. Lots of ants in the villa. Tv had bad quality reception but we didn't watch it much. Only when it was raining and or we needed to chill

Te Manava is absolutely amazing! The "wow factor" when you first walk in to your accommodation is "jaw dropping". We stayed here in an Ultimate Beachfront Villa for the last six nights of our Cook Islands holiday to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. We were very fortunate to have booked Te Manava and this property well & truly deserves all...

We went with our family and stayed in one of the villas. Seriously awesome!! There were seven of us, all ages. The villa had a full kitchen, heaps of room and a pool that was well used throughout the 10 days. The staff were some of the best I have ever come accross throughout our years travelling.

We spent 4 glorious days at Te Manava. We were quite simply blown away by the standard of this accommodation, just beautiful. We had a beach front Villa and the view out to the lagoon is stunning. The villa was extremely private and by far exceeded our expectations. The staff who work there are fantastic, they will arrange your dinner...
