Fantastic place to eat, we didn't stay, but they were welcoming and really did impress us with flare and personality. The food was just beautiful, cooked to perfection and displayed beautifully. Our waitress had the most wonderful personality and I'm sorry I cannot remember her name, we booked from the Muri Hideaway.

Room tip: Go for a meal, it was exceptional.

Just had the best stay here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. The location is perfect - it's a delightful 15min or so walk to Muri Beach. There's a shop close by and you can catch the bus to anywhere straight outside the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The rooms were very clean and a really good size. The pool area was clean and the views are amazing. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was due to the restaurant not being open during the day so you could not get a drink or any food and had to go elsewhere. It would just have been really nice to have been able to stay by the pool all day. Other than that, it was a lovely hotel.

Thank you for your review, and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your accommodation and views.
We have passed on your feedback regarding the opening hours to Laguna Restaurant, as the establishment is independently owned and operated. We are lucky to have convenience stores offering alcoholic beverages, snacks and hot options just a hundred meters or so away where a lot of our guests purchase items from to enjoy while poolside.
We do hope to welcome you back to the Cook Islands in the future!

This review is for the spa/massage service as a non-resort guest. Had a fantastic massage from April! She was highly skilled and felt very relaxed. Only reason for not being 5 stars is location of the massage within the resort. With such a beautiful setting in Muri it would be great if the massage area could be better positioned to take in all the amazing views while enjoying the massage. That being said I felt amazing after my massage with April!

I stayed 3 nights at this property. It is very clean and quiet, with nice ocean and pool views. Breakfast was good and staff at the restaurant were friendly. The property is only a 5-minute drive to the Muri night market. My only complaint was staying downstairs, I was woken up by a heavy walker upstairs at 6 am every day. Otherwise perfect stay!
