Muri Retreat is a fantastic place to stay in Rarotonga, the hosts Steve and Phoebe are more than helpful and make your stay comfortable and special. Learning to husk coconuts meant we had more than our share of coconut water and coconut flesh for breakfast! The views from apartment 4 were unbelievable and being set 5 minutes up off the... More

From the moment we arrived via shuttle, Steve and Phoebe related to us like friends, giving us advice and teaching us how to husk a coconut. Set back from the coastal road, we had the options of relaxing on site, walking to the beach, or exploring further afield. The garden is wonderful, the pool near the TV "hut" is clean... More

Phoebe and Steve our hosts were very welcoming and informative The apartments are a few minutes walk from the beach but wonderful views out to the reef. Plenty of good eating places near by if you can't be bothered cooking. Plenty of kitchen utensils on offer, laundry on ground floor. Beautiful garden setting with small pool to laze in. Units...

It doesn't really matter where you live on this island the beauty of it and all its people surrounds you no matter where you are. Rarotonga people are probably the most friendliest in the word refreshingly welcoming and genuine. At the Muri Retreat Steve and Phoebe welcomed us with fresh fruit and chat about what was what on the island.... More

Three couples and a single stayed here for a wedding last week. We found the place ideal for being away from the noise of Muri, but close enough to the best snorkelling and Muri facilities and restaurants (2 mins and 1 min on our hired scooters). I'm always a bit wary of reviews that rave about the owners (wondering if... More

We spent a week at the lovely Muri Retreat in one of the smaller rooms on the upper floor. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with fantastic views. Very good value for money and would have no hesitation staying here again (Sept 2014 hopefully!) We were a short walk from the beach, cafes and local transport links. Pheobe and... More

The two of us stayed at the wonderful Muri Retreat for one week in March and just hated leaving. The location is perfect, away from the road and up a slight hill with magnificent views. The garden is a delight and the small pool is a real bonus as it can get pretty hot . The apartment we stayed in... More

We couldn't have asked for a better way to rest and relax after a long year of hard work!!! The view was breathtaking, the grounds immaculate, the room spacious and comfortable and the pool a God-Send!!! Each of these elements contributed to a priceless holiday!

Muri retreat is slightly up in the hills overlooking Muri Beach and aptly named 'retreat'. My wife and I agree it's one of the best spots to stay in Rarotonga due to its seclusion, amenities, value for money, proximity to Muri and other villages and of course the wonderful owners, Steve and Phoebe Happ. They are both great hosts and...
