I H had a relaxing and great holiday in this resort. A great staff that helps everyone a lot with a smile and pleasure. Everything was perfect: boats, dives, food. The divemasters were really great and had a lot of experience. Thank you for everything

Had a relaxing holiday in this resort. A lot of fresh fruits with a helpful staff to show how you open a lot of them :) Everything was perfect. Boats, dives, food on the boat :) The spotters were really great, thanks for showing me lots and lots of new things...

This is a nice, low key scuba dive resort and a good refuge from the Manado, which I barely visited except for the Buddhist temple. You could easily get fat because there are nice lazy places to hang out, like at the seaside pool or under a palapa watching the gorgeous sunsets. They also have some food available all day... More

I had the time of my life getting my PADI certification and diving with Opo and Basrah -- excellent, low key and fun diving instructors. The diving pool is made specifically for dive instruction, and it was also fun just hanging out there and watching the ocean sunsets ... incredible. As for food, I love Asian dishes and am a... More

My son was certified at Murex Dive and celebrated his 18th birthday in Indonesia. The instructors were highly experienced and professional. He learned a lot and now he will be diving for a lifetime. Room and shower was huge and nice. FOOD was great !! Make sure they make the Coconut Cake ... yummm. The resort just changed management to... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Murex Dive Resort in Manado. This was a return visit to Manado and Bunaken dive sites for me, but a first time for my wife. On my previous trip, I stayed a much bigger hotel and dive resort only a kilometer further along the main road. For this trip I was looking... More

Thank you for your review and honest appraisal of Murex. We are currently in transition and have a lot of room to improve. We certainly take your criticism seriously. As soon as our transition plan is in place, we will communicate this to our dive community. Once our amended management is enacted you will see positive changes quite quickly. Thank... More

This would be a purely dive vacation and will be staying at the two Murex resorts - one on mainland Manado, the other on Bangka Island (which I will be writing a separate review). Arrived on a full flight from Singapore and was greeted by the Murex staff with a great big smile! Important to note, you need to inform... More

My 19 yr. old daughter and I stayed at Murex Manado for 6 nights in February, 2013. For 5 nights we were the only occupants, but the quiet was welcomed, and the staff were available when needed, but not intrusive. Our room was next to the large lovely fresh water pool. There is no sandy beach, but nice ocean swimming... More

Located close to Bangka Island, this is a great location to base yourself for scuba diving or snorkelling around north Sulawesi. The surrounding gardens are peaceful and quiet, yet the resort is only a short drive from the main business centre of Manado.

Stayed 8 days in November 2012 Murex Manado is situated in the midst of a green garden at the black stoney beach (not first choice for kids) in the west suburbs of Manado (Kalasey), around one hour drive from the Manado International airport.
