What a fabulous find, Muri Shores is just perfect for a relaxing holiday, home away from home on beautiful Muri Beach. We have travelled to Rarotonga many times and stayed in a variety of accommodation, mostly on Muri Beach and Muri Shores is now our favourite. We highly recommend. All the units are fresh and immaculate and the touch of fresh fruit and juice etc on arrival was the perfect touch. Both the back and the front units offer spectacular views and the location is ideal, so close to everything you may need and only a few feet away from the water! Thanks very much to the perfect hosts, Krystina and Eugene and the on site staff Edna and Albert are just so friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning ! Meitaki Maata :)

What a fantastic place Rarotonga is, and best place to stay is the Muri Shores. Perfect self contained rooms right on the beach within walking distance of great places to eat and drink. Could not have asked for a more perfect place to unwind for a few days. Thanks

I had such a wonderful time staying at Muri Shores. Not only because it was a beautiful bungalow on the beach but because the owner made me feel so welcome, from the welcome packet with fresh fruit and cereal to a friendly phone call to welcome me as well as always being there to answer the phone when I had a question. The bungalow's are in a perfect location, and having seen the resorts near by the rooms at Muri Shores are more spacious and better equipped. The bed was huge and the air con worked a treat in the humid evenings. Could not recommend this place any more highly.

We loved the beautiful rustic villa with great amenities such as a full kitchen, fantastic deck over the beach and free use of kayaks and snorkelling gears. The villa is very closed to the night market and good restaurants. The hosts Krystina and Eugene were great and Edna and Ablert were also very accomodating. We highly recommend Muri Shores when you visit Raro!!!

My husband and I just love Rarotonga, it’s our favourite place in the whole world. The owner Krystina and her staff Edna and Albert are so welcoming and friendly, ensuring that we had everything we possible needed with a no hassle attitude to help. Muri Shore’s are a total credit to Krystina and to her team, we just love that side of the island, as it’s an incredible location with the most breathtaking beachfront and crystal clear waters, it is so lovely and gorgeous just waking up and seeing that view from our bed every morning just unbelievable... Our villa had everything that we could possibly desire - a fully equipped functionally spacious modern kitchen, comfortable bed, lounge, chairs and a huge beautiful bathroom. Plus not to mention a huge balcony with table and chairs for dining, a couple of deck lounges to relax, chill out either sunbath, quick nap or two or read a book. We were provided with free kayaks and push bikes, snorkel gear and reef shoes to explore the island. We were not ready to leave Raro after staying for 3 weeks and we will most definitely be back. The property is so convenient within walking distance to so many lovely eateries like the Muri night food market, bakery, cafes and restaurants too. You can hire a car from Krystina to get around or book a delightful professional relaxing massage with Edna to ease those aches and pains. You can purchase Wifi from the local store or down the road at Bluesky. We had the most relaxing perfect holiday and we would recommend staying at the Muri Shore’s, as it’s truly a home away from home!!!
