Te Manava’s road less travelled

Te Manava’s road less travelled

The idyllic Cook Islands retreat of Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa was created for travellers in search of beautiful surroundings and luxurious accommodation, whilst also valuing their independence.

Voted “World’s Leading Island Villas” at the 2010 World Travel Awards, this amazing property is set on the beautiful white sand beach of Rarotonga’s stunning Muri lagoon and offers an exciting new choice of five-star luxury accommodation for the discerning traveller.

The resort recognises that some travellers prefer to be entirely self-sufficient, while others prefer a full service 5-star experience, so Te Manava offers the best of both worlds.

Its base rate gives guests exclusive access to a fully self-contained, luxurious and elegant 5-star villa complete with a well-equipped kitchen and laundry.

Guests then select any additional services they require from a comprehensive menu of ‘a-la-carte’ guest services – ranging from daily housekeeping services and Bvlgari luxury bathroom products, through to a 5-course dinner prepared on site by a personal executive chef.

In this way, you only pay for those services you want and need.  And how you spend your time at Te Manava is entirely up to you…

Location Location Location…

Te Manava is located on Rarotonga’s beautiful south-eastern coast.

Sweeping in an arc for a full kilometre, Muri beach is a picture-perfect white sand beach fringed by palm trees, and lapped by the gentle waters of a swimming lagoon.

Muri beach faces four uninhabited islands within the reef, two of which can be reached at low tide. The lagoon is perfect for snorkelling, as a number of nearby areas are designated fish and marine life sanctuaries.


(A perfect paradise)

The lagoon is also ideal for paddle boats and catamarans, windsurfing lessons or para-surfing.

Muri Beach village is delightful.  Restaurants, cafes, grocery stores and local shops are within walking distance.  Car, scooter and bicycle hire companies operate nearby, and a circle island bus service passes by Te Manava on the hour. 

Te Manava Luxury Villas and Spa is approximately 15 minutes drive from the main township of Rarotonga, and approximately 20 minutes from Rarotonga international airport.
