Our honeymoon started at Te Manava and as the rest of the name says it was truly a luxury villa. We loved every moment on our private terrace lying on the sunloungers and cooling off in the pool overlooking paradise. The pictures online of this place just can't capture the beauty but neither could i and i like to think i'm a decent photographer. My wife and i are architects and we both agreed that the villa and the resort are well designed. The interior finishes and fixtures are just what you would expect of a villa on a paradise island.

The villa management team were most hospitable, professional and genuine. They saw to our every need and want to make our stay the enjoyable and memorable time it was and we want to thank them again for that.

Next time we're bringing some friends and staying in the presidential villa which was next door to ours, we were shown through and it is so ready for me to party here.

Highly recommend Te Manava for your next holiday or honeymoon.

We stayed at Te Manava at the end of February for around 10 days, which unfortunately flew by too fast! Having travelled all the way from London which involved two stop-overs, being squeezed into a tight plane seat, and consuming more flight food than is natural, we were beginning to wonder if the trip was worth it all.

Now we can safely say it was beyond our expectations. The beach-front villa was beautiful and immaculately clean, the beds were divine, and the view at dawn every morning was unparalleled. Of course in mentioning all of this we'd also like to highlight the hospitality of the staff who worked there, especially Jane and Todd, who made us feel so welcome that we did not feel like tourists, but rather like we'd come home.

I would highly recommend Te Manava for those looking for a tailored and luxurious environment to unwind in, the service is amazing and the Island is unlike any other in both beauty and the character of its people.

We had the most wonderful stay with our 8 month old daughter at Te Manava, it was an incredible experience the moment we arrived. We couldn't of asked for a more relaxing holiday in paradise, the location absolutely incredible with views from our room that were breath-taking, the service was amazing and we loved the complete privacy.

Room Tip: Beach front luxury Villa absolutely amazing with private pool and direct access to beach.

We stayed here for our anniversary and had booked a garden suite (4b) knowing that this side of the island could be windy. The room was very nice & private with all you need for a romantic getaway. We stayed here for 7 nights and then upgraded to a beachfront villa (1) for the last 3 nights. Wow the view and the villa were amazing. We found the staff were excellent & would do anything for us. Our thanks go to Luisa especially who organised anything and everything we wanted. We travelled to & from Pacific resort in the free shuttle at anytime we required without hassle to use their facilities. A restaurant is being added to this resort & that will be the final touch. I would recommend anyone wanting the best treatment on the island come here.

Room Tip: All suites and villas have a courtyard with a private pool which keep the wind from being a problem...

We had a week long stay at Te Manava and wished we had longer. The 2 bedroom Villa was breathtaking, the service was excellent and everything was very easy. I would have to say this is the most relaxed I have been in a long time. Advice was freely on hand regarding places to visit and bookings were efficiently managed by the concierge, Louisa, which allowed us to get on with our relaxation, swimming in our own pool, or kayaking in our dedicated kayaks!!! We have two young children aged 3 and 5 who were made to feel welcome and the layout meant that we were not worried about noise or interfering with other guests experience. Would definitely go back and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
