Awesome holiday spot

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom villas. The villa was perfect for our family. Lots of space, tidy, had everything we needed.
The resort was great, pool was awesome and having access to the kayaks, reef shoes and paddle boards was perfect - we saw turtles more than once whilst out kayaking.
The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Made.
We had breakfast next door at the Nautilus twice and happy hour.

Such a great stay 😊

My husband and I just returned from our trip to the Cook Islands. We stayed at 3 resorts throughout our stay and both agree that Muri Beach was our favorite. The pool and grounds were very well kept. Our room was IMMACULATE! The rooms were more of an efficiency apartment which made it easy to bring food back from the local night market or cafes and drinks and snacks from 24hr convenient store without having to dine out all of the time. Which really was cost efficient. Muri Beach Resort is located in a very accessible location. It’s an easy walk to ATMs, coffee shops, the night market and a 24hr convenient store. If you do choose to dine out the Nautilus Resort is right next door and has wonderful food and views. The beach is just steps from your door and they offer SUPs and kayaks at no charge. The one factor that we agree on that made the most difference between our resort stays were the staff. We were initially greeted at the airport by Waka who could not have been friendlier and more patient despite our very late arrival. The next day we were blessed to be able to tour the island with Waka who provided us with a thorough history of the culture and islands. He brought us to unexpected places we would never have seen in our own. This tour was the highlight of our whole week. Waka truly takes pride in his work as well as his culture. Made was so accommodating at the front desk with our requests and such a pleasure to talk to. We always looked forward to seeing Janet and her warm smile when dining at The Nautilus. We also enjoyed talking with Panjii on our trip back to the airport. We would definitely recommend Muri Beach Resort for the staff, location and laid back vibe!

Very nice place to stay, clean, tidy & quite.
The staff from reception to ground staff to house cleaners are all lovely friendly people. Extremely helpful with any request or queries you may have.
The room was comfortable, nice bed etc. Would recommend staying here as the location was perfect for all you need to do in Rarotonga.

Room tip: Location is ideal

The staff at the Muri Beach Resort were friendly, efficient and helped us book activities around the island. Loved the whole place. Didn't want to leave. We ate at the sister resort next door, Nautilus Restaurant, each morning for breakfast and Keenan and his staff were so great. Food was excellent. Husband and son went game fishing and the chef prepared a meal for us, that was delicious, with their catch. The girls went for a facial at the Nautilus Spa, which was so lovely and relaxing. The rooms were clean and tidy (bed was a little firm for me:). Air conditioning was good and all rooms had ceiling fans. Gardens and pool were beautifully kept. The Resort is close to the beach with easy access, also an easy walk via the beach to Captain Tamas Glass Bottom Boat Tour, which was so much fun, the Sailing Club Bar, and supermarket. We hired a car from Polynesian Rental Cars for a few days and their service and cars were also great. Couldn't fault any of it, would so come back again. Miss Rarotonga already!

Room tip: Relax and enjoy!

We recently stayed at the Plantation House, Muri Beach Resort. The house was amazing. Our hotel transfer driver was friendly and gave us little suggestions on the trip to the house. It was clean and tidy, good wifi and rooms were massive. The beds were super comfy and could easily sleep 9. We had a starter pack in our fridge when we arrived late at night with fruit, juice, milk, bread, butter and yoghurt. It didn’t have any starter laundry powder so make sure you bring your own or you have to go see reception. Otherwise it was faultless.

Room tip: Bring your own laundry powder but otherwise everything else was available.

Lovely quiet resort. Super friendly staff. We stayed in Villa 6 a 2 bedroom villa which was lovely and quite spacious. I traveled with my sister and another friend who was already in Rarotonga joined us for 3 days. Breakfast was at the Nautilus resort next door, we also had dinner there one night. The villa was quite comfortable, however my sister who slept in one of the single beds said her mattress was not comfortable at all and could have done with being replaced. The airconditioning in the larger of the bedrooms stopped working one night but was reported the next morning on our way to breakfast and had been repaired by the time we got back to the villa. The resort is right on the beach and is walking distance to the night market and restaurants. The only improvement I would suggest would be to have an extractor fan in the bathroom as it got very hot after showers. Yes I would definitely stay again
