Muri Beach Hideaway
Ranked #8 of 17 Speciality Lodging in Muri
Reviewed 29 December 2016

Vina, the owner, was so warm and welcoming when we arrived and Muri Beach Hideaway is in such an amazing location. Vina provided us with lots of lovely home grown fruit and filled the fridge with water, milk and juice for our arrival. We really appreciated this factor as nothing is open when you arrive late at night so it was good to be able to make a cuppa and have something to eat. I loved the bungalows and the privacy and you can't beat the lagoon view, absolutely stunning. The bungalows have a great deck and you can see the beautiful lagoon from your deck if you stay in a lagoon or seaview villa. It rained a bit when we were there but the decks have blinds to roll down for a bit more protection and they worked at keeping the rain at bay so we could still chill out on the deck. There's no air-con but there was always a lovely breeze which kept it cool and a ceiling fan if needed. All windows are screened and the shutter doors are also screened. We actually didn't have any mozzies at all when we stayed as the wind kept them at bay. There's an outdoor shower to wash off and each deck has a big bowl of water to wash the sand off to keep the rooms nice and clean. And make sure you get the hammock out of the cupboard, very relaxing. I loved being at Muri Beach as it wasn't in the hustle and bustle of town but it still had a small village feel and wasn't isolated. You could walk to the bakeries, bars, small shops and car rentals easily. The night food markets (locals cooking local food) in Muri Beach were also fantastic and only a few doors up from the accommodation. It was lovely and quiet however there are roosters, they're everywhere though so it doesn't matter where you stay. We loved waking up to the sound of the drums and the singing from the Lagoon Cruise guys in the morning (about 8-9am so not too early). It just set the happy and relaxed tone every day. Couldn't have asked for more.
As a side note there's no free Wi-Fi on the island and if you found a hotspot it was a very slow connection. It was fantastic for tuning out and not having to worry about the daily grind but if you do need to keep in touch we found going to the Bluesky telecom office had a reasonable connection and a good deal for Wi-Fi rates.

Vina who is the host of this amazing place is great. The bungalows are great, comfy and clean what more do you need. This is a small and quiet little place to stay. Easy access to the beach and a swimming pool also with lots of loungers and kayaks so use also. Ask Vina anything and she is more than happy to help sort anything out for you. Walking distance to Muri and lots of great eating places.
There is also the hillside bungalows which are great to stay in also a little further away from the beach but really nice and quiet and clean and comfy also

Room Tip: All the rooms in this place are great

In August we spent 14 nights at Muri Beach Hideaway and it was a delightful experience. The location is incredible - walking distance of any number of shops, restaurants and cafes and right on the beach. The bungalows are extremely comfortable and Vina is an absolute treasure who couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. We loved all the animals and the hens with their chickens foraging around the lovely gardens.

We did hire a car for the whole time and were glad of it for getting about, particularly when it rained. We didn't actually swim because we found it just too cold compared with what we area accustomed to, but there were plenty of people swimming, sailboarding etc, so it's just a matter of taste.

I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Muri Beach Hideaway. I have to say that anyone who makes any negative comment in their review about this location is simply silly and can be ignored. This place is heaven on earth. I was completely blown away by how much the bungalow, and the island of Rarotonga in general, exceeded my expectations. The bungalows are very big, clean, and have all modern amenities. The bed is huge and comfortable and the view is just unbelievable. The water is amazing there. It's nothing like I've ever seen. I was traveling alone and felt 100% safe and comfortable and happy. Vina is an absolutely wonderful person. She was so helpful and wonderful. I'm so happy to have met her and had the opportunity to stay at the Muri Beach Hideaway. I'm already planning my trip back to Rarotonga and I will definitely be staying again at the Muri Beach Hideaway.

Room Tip: There's really no bad choice, but Bungalow #1 has the best, most amazing view of the beach and w...
