My mother, aunt and I just got back from a week long stay from Kura's Kabanas and we couldnt sing our praises any louder. We loved it. We stayed there for a wedding and chose the family studio (which are located above the office in the two storey building). These were self catering units which had a lovely little balcony out the front overlooking the lagoon. We loved the free use of kayaks available to guests and also the welcome basket of fruit yummm :-) Robin and Kura - the owners were very friendly and offered great advice and service. I thought that it was a perfect way to ease into the Rarotongan lifestyle by staying at a locally owned place rather than the bigger resorts (which our other family members opted for). Aside from the great prices for the rooms ($200 a night) - the rooms were spacious, tidy and comfortable.
The property doesnt have a direct expansive beach but backs straight onto the glassy lagoon where you can watch the sun rise and fall... plus its only a short stroll down from Pacific resort etc/Captain Tamas where there happens to be more sand to roam and play on.
The location of Kura's Kabana's in Muri Beach is fantastic. Walk outside the door and your right next to a black pearl shop/t shirts/souveniers. Car/Scooter hire across the road. A convenience store and ATM, a 2 minute walk down the road - and not far at all from one of the islands best restaurants 'The Flame Tree' and cultural show 'Te Vaera Nui Village'
We loved the stay here and highly recommend Kuras Kabanas if you're planning on staying in Muri Beach, Rarotonga.
