I stayed at Muri Beach Resort for a couple of nights. A small resort right on the Muri Beach - that allows the use of non motorised water sports for free. Yes - perfect for me. My villa was nicely air conditioned with ceiling fan, and my room had cooking facilities, and with the corner shop 2 minute walk away,... More

What an amazing place to stay! Staff were all so friendly and helpful. The room was perfect for us, even had a little kitchen so we could store cold food and drinks, and we could have cooked if we wanted. The bathroom was so clean and there was even a spa bath! Facilities were all so clean and tidy. There... More

The garden villa provided everything we needed to be self sufficient, plus secluded outdoor loungers and table and chairs if you wanted time to relax on your own. Close to the Aqua Bar and the pool. The resort provided paddle boards and kayaks, snorkels, masks and reef shoes. Breakfast was part of the deal and was at the neighbouring resort... More

Good location, that's about it...much nicer places to stay close by for cheaper. The place is Eco-friendly which basically means they don't have to clean it. The bathroom needed a good scrub with jif, and the rooms themselves have dirty linen and curtains. The bar was hardly ever open...I would stay at Muri Beachclub next time.

We stayed here for Christmas 2012. We were attracted by the location (at the best end of the island) and the fact that it was aimed at couples without children. The food was brilliant at the resort, and it was also within a few minutes walk of the famous Flame Tree restaurant. The beach is excellent for canoeing and snorkeling... More

Great location, close to beach and walking distance to several restaurants. Resort has half dozen kayaks free to use in the lagoon which is great fun. But accommodation is very tired. We stayed here 2 years ago and at that time the staff said the rooms were tired and needed some attention to bring them up to standard so we... More
