We have recently stayed at Sunhaven Beach Bungalows and I would thoroughly recommend it. Had great facilities, great location and is spotlessly clean. The units are serviced daily except Sunday. Is on the western side of the island so has great sunsets and is only a short distance to good restaurants and the wonderful Beluga cafe. Would definitely go back

Room Tip: All are good

Kia Orana christinegD9764WN,

Our absolute beachfront location on the Western side of the island means you can enjoy uninterrupted views of spectacular sunsets while relaxing in a sun lounger on your front deck or in one of our hammocks.

It also helps to have a couple of dairies, a great cafe and other eateries a short walk away. We take immense pride in keeping our facilities, garden and beachfront clean for our guests’ enjoyment.

Thank you once again for your fantastic review!

Had the best time at sunhaven beach bungalows. Loved that they were only a small accomodation. The owners were great and nothing was a problem. If ever we return to the Cook Islands we will defiantly stay again

Kia Orana 5454melly,

Thank you for your lovely feedback!

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your holiday with us. Our quiet location is a bonus for those looking to get away from the daily grind and take some time out for themselves.

Being located on a small island means you are never far from the dairies, cafes, restaurants, activities and tours.

We would be happy to hear back if you ever decide to revisit our slice of paradise.

Kia Manuia,
Dennis, Patti, Keren, Ali and Rouru.

This is a small property set right up to the beach with Western aspect for wonderful sunsets. It is very well maintained and very clean. The pool is crystal clear. If you would prefer a quiet place to a large boisterous party type place this is your place! Staff is friendly and very helpful being all local knowledge and having time to visit with you about things to do and placing the bookings for you.

Room Tip: All rooms face the surf and sunsets.....

Kia Orana Cameo94,

Our spectacular sunsets and quiet beachfront location provide a relaxing environment in which to unwind and rejuvenate your soul.

We are glad you enjoyed Pa’s Cross Island Trek and your very successful fishing trip (we loved the fresh yellowfin tuna (ceviche & sashimi!). We hope you had a good trip home and look forward to hearing from you if you are ever out our way again.

Thank you once again for your great review!

We stayed for 7 nights at Sunhaven in early February. Our bungalow was spotlessly clean and well cared for as was the case for the whole property. The staff there were wonderful particularly Karen, the manager and Ali who picked us up from and delivered us to the airport and who looked after our bungalow. Both were generous with their advice and great ambassadors for both the property and the island. While the beach in front of the development is too rocky for swimming, the salt water pool near our bungalow brought a welcome relief to the heat and particularly the over the top humidity. Our bungalow wasn't air conditioned so sometimes it was a bit uncomfortable for sleeping but nothing one couldn't deal with. We made use of the island bus and went into town several times. It worked well but a scooter rental would have made it easier to explore and visit some of the other beaches. A number of restaurants and attractions will provide a pickup service at no charge and Keren was able to organize that for us on several occasions - thank you Keren!!

Raretonga is a great place to relax and unwind but don't expect Hawaii type activities - It's a pretty laid back and quiet place. For us one of the, if not the, main things about Rarotonga is the friendliness and helpfulness of the people.

Kia Orana Lee D,

It was our pleasure to host you both on your first holiday out to the South Pacific.

We are delighted to hear you both enjoyed your stay with us in spite of the high humidity levels. The rain showers were a welcome relief albeit brief as they were. The lovely sea breeze would have helped to keep you cool though as you enjoyed the ocean views from the verandah.

The laid back, relaxed atmosphere of our island and bungalows is what a lot of visitors look forward to on their island getaway. We are however also well located in terms of nearby cafes, restaurants, vehicle rentals, tours and activities.

Thank you once again for your wonderful review and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!

Kia Manuia,

The weather was stupendously hot when we arrived, the humidity was at its peak even in the rain.

Accommodation at Sunhaven was top of the line, right from our pickup at the airport and throughout our stay, staff couldn't do enough for us.

Room Tip: air conditioning would be excellent

Kia Orana Raellen R,

You both arrived at the peak of one the hottest periods of summer we’ve had so far. Although the rain was a blessing in disguise it did not relieve the humidity for long!

So glad you both enjoyed your time with us and we hope to welcome you back on your next trip.

Thank you for your lovely review!

Kia Manuia,
