Rarotonga's most honored dining establishment



Business Information

Established in 1978, Tumunu Restaurant is Rarotonga’s most time-honored dining establishment

Within footsteps of the renowned Edgewater Resort on the enviable sunset coast and a short distance from Crown Beach Resort, this offering is sold complete with an array of lodging options.

Opened by Cook Islands’ first prime minister Sir Tom Davis in 1978, Tumunu Restaurant was the first bar issued with the first bar liquor license of its time, which turned into a restaurant.

It quickly became the first village social centre of its day and remains an honored landmark of Rarotonga today.

Over the years, esteemed patrons have generously bequeathed personal items, transforming the establishment into a living museum of cherished memorabilia. Each of those items narrates a captivating story of affection and contributes to the rich tapestry of global culture.

It is not just a dining experience but a journey through time, threaded with love from every corner of the world.

Set on a generous leasehold section of 2,536sqm, equipped with large kitchen, ancillary storage areas, walk-in freezer, ground floor apartment with office, spacious top floor self-contained residence of 130sqm, and a private 1-bedroom cottage with veranda of 68sqm, carport and large garden.

The outdoor garden offers the perfect setting for private functions with road frontage for high visibility and plenty of parking available.

A unique opportunity to acquire a historic culinary landmark renowned worldwide in the tropical island of Rarotonga.
