We were the only guests at the resort since it was low-season and Bangka isn't as visited as Bunaken or Lembeh but it felt rather lonely especially since the staff didn't really try to talk much with us neither did the local manager who came and went after only an hour and didn't speak to us at all. We had... More

On a whim I decided to go to this resort for a week of diving after going to Lembeh Resort. The diving was incredible and I will be back. You must keep in mind it is a very remote location, a bit basic conditions and limited food selection. Putting all that aside, I was there to dive and I have... More

I have always picture myself on an isolated island with nothing but the sea, sand, sun and the basic necessity to lived. Murex Bangka Island was the answer! Though the resort provided more than the basics such as a surreal individual cottages, simple meals, serenity, great (and I must mentioned GREAT!) diving, the best part of it, we were so... More

Murex Bangka Resort is a "branch" of the main Murex resort in Manado. This visit was our second and although it was a short visit (4 nights and 3 days of diving), we enjoyed ourselves a great deal. The staff is very accommodating, from arranging transfers from the airport to making sure our room was to our liking. We also... More

We stayed about one week at Murex Bangka Dive Resort and we were happy with our stay. Place is relaxed, no stress, and good diving. Stuff is friendly and they try to make your stay enjoyable. Diving wasn’t difficult here we took three dives a day and it was pleasant. Lot of macro stuff and even muck dives (similar to... More

We were here this spring, see that review. This place has not changed, and we think that is great. This is still a prestine hide-away. You are far from busy city life here, so do not expect top service in any way. But on an island resort in this simple yet comfortable style, that is fine. Take it slow! Adjust... More

Stayed 8 days in October 2012, The resort is situated in a small bay on the south part of Bangka Island – completely separated from the „rest of the world“. To do anything you need a boat (f.i. to reach the nearest village on the island, if you don’t want to cross the rocks that enclose the maybe 100m of... More

My friends and I chose this resort for diving trip around Bangka, North Sulawesi. Most of dive sites here have hard current, except the house reef. It's good to do night dive at house reef, no current and can be accessed by beach entry. The beach is nice, crystal clear water, and white sands. Hanging on the hammock under the... More
