MURI BEACH RESORT
Muri Beach, Rarotonga

OUR Thoughts on Muri Beach Resort
This pleasant little family-owned resort offers a good-value 3-Star holiday experience right on Muri Beach. What you get staying here is a well-appointed villa or apartment set in a location next door to their 4-Star sister property – Nautilus Resort and within walking distance of all the facilities and attractions on offer along Muri Lagoon and Muri Beach. All of the 20 units are air-conditioned and have a ceiling fan.  Over recent years in Rarotonga, there has been a trend towards only the very cheap and the most up-market accommodation units to offer a self-catering option, so, it is quite refreshing to find a moderately priced resort which still offers cooking facilities in all units. Another feature of Muri Beach Resort is that Villa and apartment bathrooms all offer a Jacuzzi Spa Bath as well as a shower.

The resort is fairly compact in size but still manages to include a 12m x 6m swimming pool, a games and book library, guest BBQs, snorkelling gear, kayaks, reef shoes and beach towels, an activities desk to assist guests make the best of their Rarotonga holiday and a beautiful furnished sundeck on the beachfront overlooking Muri Lagoon.

Having the Nautilus Resort next door is a bonus, as Muri Beach Resort guests may access their superb lagoon-front restaurant/bar complex. 

Due to its size (20 units) Muri Beach Resort offers the very interesting option of a whole-of-resort buyout for small groups – ideal for a wedding party.  A good wedding package is available which can easily be tailored to individual needs.

Choice of Tariff Plans:
Muri Beach Resort offers a choice of tariff plans – either “Self Service” or “Premium Service”.
Premium Service:
Premium Service includes daily tropical breakfast at the café and rooms serviced daily. Tropical breakfast includescereals, bakery items, fresh fruit, toast, juices and tea or standard coffee.  Guests on the Premium Service tariff may upgrade to full breakfast at a reasonable additional charge if full breakfast is required.
Self Service:
Self Service does not include breakfast (breakfast may be purchased any day it is required) and guests buying this option do not receive the daily housekeeping service.  Changes of towels and bed linen and replacement cleaning materials etc may be picked up at Reception at no additional charge.
There is a difference in price between the two tariff plans of approximately $35 per person per night share twin.

All guests, irrespective of which tariff plan they have purchased, receive a “Welcome Tropical Breakfast” on the first morning of their stay with the compliments of Muri Beach Resort.

Minimum Stay Policy:
Muri Beach Resort has a year-round 4-nights minimum stay policy.

What Muri Beach Resort Say About Themselves:
“Muri Beach Resort affordable luxury on the beach. This eco-friendly deluxe boutique resort is absolute beachfront on Muri Beach in Rarotonga, in the tropical Cook Islands offering guests an intimate holiday experience with true Cook Islands hospitality. Newly refurbished are twenty modern, well-appointed self-contained villas and apartments, some beachfront - others set in tropical gardens – all with privacy and of course, the mod cons of air-conditioning, kitchens and Jacuzzi spa baths -need we say more? This is perfectly styled for those who like the ‘comforts of home’ but when you want to leave the cooking to others, there is a trendy little poolside café serving an innovative menu for adults and kids alike. The menu includes fresh and healthy options including  pizzas, tapas, share plates and the best value happy hour cocktails around. All this plus the award-winning Nautilus Restaurant next door in the up-market sister hotel Nautilus Resort, welcomes Muri Beach Resort guests to dine or book a therapy at the Spa Nautilus day spa. MBR (as return guests affectionately call it) is totally family friendly, a #1 choice on Rarotonga for resort buy-out and weddings (and elopements) and of course all with the famed ocean playground of Muri Beach on your literal doorstep.  So much action for couples, families and singles on offer with stand-up paddle boardinfg, kayaks, and snorkelling from the resort and nearby great walking trails, fishing and superb safe swimming in the lagoon - all on pristine sands. Oh, and they are a solar operated, eco-friendly operation with UV treated drinking water, a guilt free getaway. Affordable luxury doesn’t get better.”

Your Accommodation Options
For a 3-Star resort, Muri Beach Resort offers very good in-room facilities.  Each unit is self-contained with a kitchenette and dining area.  The kitchenette includes a full-size fridge/freezer, microwave oven and cook top and UV treated drinking water on tap. In the open-plan Studio Villas there is a defined sleeping zone in a semi-enclosed bedroom.  All accommodation is air-conditioned as well as having a ceiling fan and flow-through ventilation through fully screened doors and windows. Bathrooms have a Deluxe Jacuzzi spa bath with separate tiled shower. Every unit has a TV & DVD player, multi-channel In-house TV, wifi access, clock radio and hair dryer as well as complimentary tea, coffee & sugar. Outside there is a covered patio, an outdoor table, chairs and private sun lounges.  

With only 20 accommodation units on this beachfront location, no unit is very far away from the beach. Some of the Garden and Poolside Villas have a glimpse of the water, but you can guarantee a water view by taking Lagoon View or Beach Front accommodation types and you won’t have to break the bank to do so either.  The term “Villa” usually denotes a stand-alone unit. All units are 100% solar powered.
