We booked the garden house and two of the one bedroom villas for a week for our extended family celebration. What a huge success it was for us all, ranging in ages from 24 to 60 and made extra special by Maryanne and her happy team! The location is great as they are almost at the end of the famous...

Don't stay in the garden villa! the other villas are much more like what you would expect a holiday place to be. We'd heard great things about how relaxing Raro was and had been told about Muri, so we felt we had booked the right place. However, the Garden Villa is in need of serious refurbishment, and has a pretty...

After arrival very early in the morning we were met by a friendly and very funny local gentleman who transfered us to our accomodation. We were greeted by a personalized welcome letter from Maryanne (manager of the villa) and her team....

We stayed at Manea Villas for 10 days after we got married at another location. Fantastic villa, clean and tidy, staff were awesome. Muri beach just a short walk away. Very peaceful. Fantastic to have the pool. Close to heaps of resorts/restaurants where you can go for lunch or dinner.

“Unit 4 was perfect to access the pool and beach. The one bedroom was a perfect size for a couple....I'm missing it already.”

“Villa 2 has some of the most amazing views on the island. With double story decks, bang smack on the lagoon - lush!”

“The lagoon view villas have better chairs in the living room, and I think the wind helps cool them down a little more than the others.”
  • TV was pretty comical. Very old school, but there's only one channel and it's pretty bad
  • Comfy chairs. The non-lagoon view rooms have other wicker chairs (not as comfy as these deep one
  • Spacious kitchen with everything I needed
  • Ceiling fan really helped keep the air fresh and cool
  • View out to the lagoon from living room
  • Bed is 2 twin beds pushed together. Not uncomfortable but not the best I've slept in either.
