Amazing time - couldn't be happier. Was a great resort from the start. We got a pick-up shuttle from Margaret who was super friendly and took us to the resort. Our villa had everything we needed - kitchen (fully equipped with big repellent spray). Good size bathroom and lounge. The bed was heaven on earth - really really good sleeps. Everything around the resort is very close - the pool is right next to the bar - great for those 5pm cocktails and the beach is just in the other direction, very close! All the staff were very helpful and friendly and helped us book in all our tours and gave us good advice on what to do. Would recommend the premium option for your stay so you get your sheets/towels changed daily (if required) and you get a buffet breakfast everyday next door at Nautilus (their sister resort). Great buffet - big range of foods and fresh fruits!

Amazing little gem and gorgeous beach. We arrived past midnight and the lovely Margaret met us with a bright bubbly welcome at the airport. On arrival our room was spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, fridge, microwave, toiletries, kitchenware for cooking, fly spray, insect repellant, the lot. We were in the room next to the pool area and never had trouble with noise. The grounds are beautifully kept and all staff were so friendly and willing to help with anything. Towards the beach end of the resort is a little decking area with tables and chairs which we used a lot to enjoy the amazing views of the beach lagoon and gorgeous blue water. The water isn't very good for swimming directly out front of the resort however a short 1-2 min walk further down and you'll find lovely sand and water for swimming. The pool was always clean and great to cool off in. On the main road at the driveway is a small shop with groceries and they also sell fresh hot meals and bakery items which we loved and found handy. 5 mins further down are shops, cafes, tours/activities, care hire etc. A very good location. We would definitely love to return some day soon and bring our kids along with us. I highly recommend Muri Beach Resort.

Great Holiday. We stayed here for 6 nights. We had a lovely big room with great facilities [comfy bed] overlooking the lagoon. The room was air conditioned but we didn't use it as we got a beautiful breeze off the lagoon each night, we were upstairs with a great balcony. The staff were lovely and very helpful and friendly. The pool area is very nice and the daily cocktail options were great as was the bar food. We got a rental car and saw all we needed to. Restaurants were good and many nearby. We ate next door at The Nautilus a couple of times. It was very nice. Great donuts at the bakery across the road. We went paddling in the lagoon- all equipment provided. We loved our stay thanks to the wonderful staff.
