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.

The team at the Murex resort were exceptional throughout to allow us to relax and enjoy great diving, great food and great relaxation. We were the only ones there and were able to relax. The dive team were so very helpful both above and underwater, spotting exceptional wildlife. We spotted 50+ turtles on one dive during our day trip to Bunaken island. Unbelievable. The food was very tasty Indonesian and western fusion. A nice surprise every evening. Our airconditioned room by the beach was well located next to the restaurant and 30 seconds from everything. The room and bathroom by the beach was a little 'tired' and due for some renovation. That said, the rooms on the hill are brand new and much larger. Overall, a very nice stop to combine with their other location in Lembeh.

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.

The pandemic has ruined my travel schedule in 2020. Staying at Murex (Manado and Bangka) was a perfect closure of such a hellish year of not diving. I visited the resort in Bangka around 4/5 years ago and had fond memories. The second visit in January 2021 was as wonderful. The staff were helpful, the room was clean and had everything I want (inc. bidet - a feature they would soon as in Manado, I presume), drink water container (no plastic bottles), two cloth drying racks (one is never enough), comfy bed, and so on. The food is marvelous and they could accommodate your preferences. They provide french press for your coffee too if you like, a small detail I highly appreciate. I also appreciated the Covid prevention measures - all staff wears masks inc. in dive boats, and so on. I felt safe doing my first dive after more than a year there. The dives were great (including the night ones), lots to see, I kinda wished I rented a camera or something. It's family friendly too; when I was there there were a family with two little kids and they seemed to have lots of fun. Will I come back? Of course.

My husband and I visited this lovely resort this past October for 5 days and we have not been disappointed. Delicious food, lovely staff, wonderful bungalow and each day fantastic dives with wonderful dive masters and boat crew. Just what we needed: a break from the hectic life in Jakarta. We can strongly recommend this resort and we were spoilt as we were the only guests during 4 days. Thanks to all at Murex Bangka who helped us make wonderful memories.
