We had a very good few nights at Murex Dive Resort. The moment you arrive, you immediately become part of one big family. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and everything is done with a smile. The scenic settings makes you forget whatever hectic life you come from and the sun sets on the beach are breathtakingly beautiful. Rooms spacious... More

We stayed at Murex Dive Resort Manado in August. The food was very tasty and one night we had some sashimi Tuna, very delicious. We really enjoyed the views out to Bunaken Marine Park and the sunsets were amazing there. We also loved the mature gardens and stream that ran through the resort. Diving was well organised and the boats... More

I just came back from my third trip to Murex. The first was in 2008, the second in 2011. Each time, I came here with a group and we dove eight days, three dives a day. The resort is very comfortable. The room was a good size with adequate closet space and a huge bathroom (which has no barrier around... More

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
