My husband and I stayed at the Muri Beach Club in March and it far exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful new resort at the edge of of Muri beach, nestled behind a motu which was perfect for blocking the wind off the ocean. The beach was clean and inviting and the water was as clear as glass! The pool, while rather small ended up being perfect for our stay as only a few other couples were on site. I think I only shared it once!
The room was spacious and clean and despite other reviews, the water was always hot--sometimes scalding hot, be careful! Another word of warning, make sure to watch out for the trigger fish--they bite (nothing serious, but they sure scared me)!! I can't blame them though as it was mating season and we were interfering with their business!
The staff was always curteous and helpful. They assisted us by making restaurant suggestions, booking our dinner reservations, activities, and directing us where to rent scooters for the week. The gentlemen running the water sports center were extremely friendly and helpful. They gave us a history lesson on the island and advised us on the area's best snorkeling spots.
Finally, if you're an animal lover, you will appreciate the beach dogs, especially Chico! They were really fun to watch as they played in the water and sunned themselves on the beach--what a life! Oh, and if you're up for an adventure, stroll the beach at night with a flashlight. You'll see some gigantic crabs and some creepy eels. Definitely interesing to see!
My husband and I would go back in a heartbeat! The Muri Beach Club Resort is nothing short of paradise!
