BEAUTIFUL MURI. We stayed here for 5 nights last week. I spent quite a bit of time researching places to stay in Raro and was not disappointed with my choice of the Nautilus. The resort is beautiful, clean and offers some really nice personal touches. Our meeting with Tim the duty manager when we arrived was great - really helped to let us know what was available in Rarotonga. Nice little touches of homemade sweets delivered in the afternoon was a lovely touch. I also visited the Spa and had a heavenly scrub & massage with Jiue - highly recommend the spa and also staying at the Nautilus - will definitely be back.

STUNNING. A perfect hotel with beautiful spacious appointed rooms. The staff are so friendly and helpful always with a ready smile and learn your names. A very well run hotel with the food presented and tasting so good with unusual flavours. The beach front villa was sheer luxury .so sorry it is so far away!! Room Tip: Beach front but all rooms are luxurious each with their own plunge pool.

AMAZING HOSPITALITY. Warwick and his staff were absolutely amazing. We had 7 nights of fun and relaxation. The island is amazing and can't recommend this Resort highly enough. Thank you to all the staff for making our holiday fabulous.

WEDDING AT NAUTILUS RESORT. What can I say about Nautilus that hasn't been said. Me and my partner decided to do our vows in the Cook Islands and looked for a place in Muri Beach. We chose Nautilus and booked our room for 6 day stay along with the wedding package. From booking to check-in everything went perfect. Correspondence was easy and we were able to arrange everything prior to arrival. As time came for our trip we were nervous but also excited. I can say that the Nautilus staff did everything in their power to make sure we were comfortable and everything went smooth. The staff from the manager Warwick, to our coordinator Josh, and Josie and crew provided us with a memorable ceremony as well as stay. Check in went smooth and we relaxed our first day before meeting with Josh to set up our ceremony. The resort itself is peaceful and well maintained. Whether you spend the day at the pool (which was serviced daily) or the beach, or the spacious rooms you will be at peace. Staff at the restaurant made sure you were taken care of. Breakfast is complimentary and hit the spot. Along the day you can order lunch or drinks while you relax. Everything went smooth and according to plan. For the ceremony Josh and company made sure everything went as planned. I can't commend Josh enough on his professionalism as well as his effort. I needed a volt converter (being from the States) and he went out of his way to get me one. More importantly he worked with us from beginning to the end of our ceremony making sure everything was great. Nautilus made our ceremony memorable and I can't thank them enough for working to make it what we envisioned. After the ceremony we got to enjoy the resort. From kayaking to the lagoon, to snorkeling or just bathing out in the sun, Nautilus had all the amenities that we wanted. Concierge always provided information as well as activities and service. Wifi on the island is only provided by one company and Nautilus kept us online with Wifi cards. Just remember to enjoy the other things at Nautilus and the Cook Islands. Food at the restaurant is always fresh and delicious, as we opted for dinner at Nautilus on our last night and enjoyed it. Nautilus offers all the amenities and services that you can enjoy. You can also venture out into the Cook Islands and explore. Once again I thank the staff at Nautilus for making our wedding memorable and our stay one to never forget.
