We stayed nine nights at the Muri Beach Resort. Erika and her team made us feel very welcome and ensured our stay was fantastic. We travelled with our three small children, and they thoroughly enjoyed the resort, its facilities and the beauty of Muri Beach Resort, the lagoon and the kayaking!!! We stayed in a two bedroom villa which led... More

We stayed at Muri Beach Resort for seven nights and it was one of the best holidays. We went over with all our family and friends for my husbands Nephews wedding. The location of resort is perfect right on the lagoon. The snorkling around the island was amazing and its right out the front of resort. We stayed in a... More

We stayed ten nights at Muri Beach resort and were married on Koromiri Motu. Jane and Chrissy did an awesome job organising the wedding day and everything went off very smoothly. The service at the resort generally and in the restaurant was superb. The rooms were spotlessly clean and superbly maintained. The only thing which was less than perfect was... More

This was our second stay at Muri Beach Resort, the previous visit with our 4 children was so great we came back without them for our anniversary and our memories of the resort did not disappoint. The staff are so friendly, always a greeting, asking how your activities went, no request is a problem. We love the smaller resort atmosphere,... More

This was our first time in Raro and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit (Room 7) and it was perfect for our needs - a family of four. Close to the pool for early morning swims and only 50 steps to the ocean! The room was clean and well maintained... More

We recently spent 13 nights at the Muri Beach Resort in mid-October 2013. The facilities were great, and the staff, princess Sala in the office, Betty, Chris, and particularly the lovely Vara, could not have been more friendly and helpful. They worked so hard, particularly on days when they had weddings to cater for. However some of those weddings disrupted... More

Spacious villas, friendly staff, particularly Sala. Nothing too much trouble. Not need for car, plenty within walking distance along with activities, but wheels allow you to see more of the island, so you can hop on hop off. Restaurant, excellent food. Plenty of towels available. Paradise. We were there for a wedding, and can understand the review regarding weddings. Raro... More

We recently returned from Muri Beach Resort where we were married. What an absolutely tranquil place. The place has a feel of "home away from home", very peaceful and low key. Often it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. There is no feeling of "hustle and bustle" with people checking in and out, or staff scurrying around... More
