You really can't beat Kuras Kabanas for the value and location on beautiful Muri Beach, they are super clean and well laid out bungalows right next to the beach on the lagoon. The bbq hut is an added bonus right beside the beach, so you don't have to cook inside. You can suntan on the deck or watch the moon...

We had a 10 day stay at Kura's and loved it. The kabanas were exactly what we wanted - spacious, self contained, filled with light and with a great deck with a lagoon view. The room came with tea, coffee, milk and a bowl of fruit on arrival, and had a fully furnished kitchen for when we didn't want to...

We stayed at Kura's for 5 nights and loved it. I wanted to book the unit that's closest to the beach (Kabana 1) but only Kabana 4 was available for the days we wanted. We were not disappointed, and I can assure that all kabanas have fabulous views of the lagoon and the islands (motus). The kabana's very spacious, clean...

This was my first visit to the Cook Islands and I'm very happy I chose to stay at Kura's Kabanas. I was very impressed by the owners, Kura and Robin, who were very gracious, kind, and helpful during my visit. The kabanas are clean, comfortable, private, and came fully equipped with everything I needed. Upon my arrival, it was so...

Kura Kabanas is an excellent choice for good value accommodation in Rarotonga Kuras has an excellent location and shares the same beach as hotels and resorts that are 5 or 6 times the price. Its a short stroll along the perfect white sand beach to many bars, cafes, restaurants and resorts. Kuras has 4 cabanas in their beachfront garden, that...

Nicely outfitted cabins in a handy Muri location. Cabins are nice nice and roomy, maybe beginning to show a little wear and tear but offer well equipped kitchen with full stove, fridge and microwave, good showers and a nice verandah with a lagoon view. Value wise they certainly put the local resorts in the shade, and if you can't be...

We spent a bit over a week at Kuras in April. We were so happy with our kabana, not to mention the friendly and helpful service from Robin, Kura and staff, that we plan to book again for our trip in 2016. The location is great. It's an easy walk to any number restaurants, the lagoon is out the front,...

I usually don't give 5-star reviews to accommodation, but Kura's deserves 10. From the moment Robin dropped us off at our Grand Villa to the moment we departed, this was an incredible experience. No one can beat Kura's: they are well-connected, well-placed, spotless, AND inexpensive--of the three places we stayed in the Cook Islands, this was both the best and...

Wonderful surprise to arrive into this superb relaxing hideaway on Muri Lagoon. 2 steps from personal deck into lush garden and lagoon beach, sunset from the deck over a late afternoon wine, even a shared BBQ kabana built over the small stream feeding into the lagoon and exotic shady trees over a lush green lawn and garden.
