Had a wonderful stay here, very relaxing and a beautiful sunset every night. I didn’t do the diving excursions, but they did look really good. The staff can not do enough for you, they are so helpful and friendly. Room was large and clean. Recommended

Great hospitality and very friendly staff!! They designed our stay according to our whishes and made them come true. Amazing stay and amazing dives. We had two very competent dive masters who understood our level and gave us great challenge. Only minus is that the PADI dive courses seem a bit more expensive compared to other Indonesien places. The dives in it self was very great value.

Dear andersk116, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and diving with us at Murex Manado - Our staff were delighted to read your comments! We are extremely fortunate to have such amazing dive sites, quite literally, on our doorstep and our Dive Guides are as passionate about diving and marine life as you are. It's great to hear that they took into account your level and gave you suitable challenges! Our courses are slightly more expensive than those in places like Bali, much of this is due to the logistics and shipping costs we have for student materials and dive equipment. Great to hear that you thought the dives were great value! Once again, thank you from all of us and best wishes, Sarah Wormald Murex Dive Resorts

We had the pleasure to stay at Murex resort for 12 days both in Manado and Bangka. I Can highly recommend it. The room was nice and clean, the staff very very friendly and the food was some of the best i have had in Indonesia. The Diving and snorkling was amazing and the staff allways good to make some really good trips. Our whole family would love to come back another time, it is very close to paradise.

We (German family) spent our Christmas vacation in North Sulawesi. Our first stay was at Murex Manado. From the first day we felt comfortable. The rooms were very clean and spacious (even with two extra beds for the kids). In the whole complex the children had enough possibilities to be outdoors. From the breakfast table we had a wonderful view to the Bunaken. All staff were extremely guest friendly and always willing to help or to have a chitchat. After Murex Manado we went to Murex Bangka (about 1.5 hours drive + about 20 minutes boat ride). Arrived on the island, the dream continued: Cottages (again clean and spacious) right on the turquoise beach, coral reefs direct in front of the island with a colorful underwater world, lots of possibilities for snorkeling and kayaking; an incredible hospitality from ALL the staff. The dives were fantastic. The individual dive sites could be reached within a maximum of 10 minutes by boat. We also went to the Bunaken for diving/snorkeling – it`s an incredible beautiful underwater world. In this vacation there was only one point of criticism: breakfast, lunch and dinner, all damn delicious but unfortunately, each time too much for us four.

On a recent dive trip in February 2020 I spent 4 nights at Murex Manado. It was a beautiful place to stay and the staff were outstanding. The dive operation was exceptional and the diving fantastic! The food was great and plentiful and I especially enjoyed the made to order omelettes in the morning! The accommodations were clean and comfortable, although our bathroom had virtually no hot water, and the toilets could use an upgrade. Even so the stay was wonderful and I would not hesitate to return.
