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,... More

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... More

Highly recommend kuras, if like us you don't like resort accommodation. Very attractive setting and spacious,clean, private kabanas.Handy to all Muri eateries and amenities and at low tide you can walk right round and along the main beach.Would definitely return. Nick and Nuie

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. Local crabs love... More

Kura's Kabanas is absolutely charming. Our five-day visit began with being met at the airport with flower leis (I didn't even know that happened anymore!). We had a private bungalow just a few steps from the beach and very quiet, except for the wandering chickens which just added to the fun. You're walking distance to shops if you want to... More

My fiancé and I stayed in a Kabana for 5 nights at the end of February. The Kabana was spacious and spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed in it and great views over the lagoon. We stayed in Kabana 2. It wouldn't matter which Kabana you stayed in as all are only steps from the lagoon and all have... More

You can't do better in this price range. We stayed a few days right on the waterfront in a tidy spacious cabanas with a relaxing deck. The lagoon faces an island which you can walk to in high and low tide (use footwear). That island protected us from some cold Pacific winds the first 2 days (other resorts didn't have... More

Myself and my partner traveled up to Rarotonga for a wedding and stayed 4 nights at Kuras Kabanas. We stayed in one of the bungalows and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The rooms are simple but clean and tidy, with a kitchen, bathroom and neat deck out front of each. This was exactly what we were after. My partner had been... More

What more can we say: great price, great people, great accommodation and great location. Kayaks, BBQ and pick up and drop off from airport all available with a smile. The lagoon is just there so easy and safe for small kids to go and have a swim/snorkel.

Kura's Kabana's are great for family and couples having just stayed just recently for 2 weeks, we stayed in the family units. They are clean and perfect for families, the staff are really friendly I would definitely stay here again. Kuras Kabana's are in the best location within walking distance to everything you need.
