MURI BEACHCOMBER
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Muri Beachcomber, Muri Lagoon, Rarotonga
A long-time favourite, being one of the original places for visitors to stay on the Muri Lagoon.  With very comfortable amenities and great services from genuinely friendly managers and staff.  Long before there was any sort of major resort at Muri, (let alone the now-famous Night Market, dining and food outlets, lagoon-based activities, etc), Muri Beachcomber offered comfortable units with a kitchen and separate living room, wonderful tropical gardens and sweeping lawns as well as direct access to Muri Beach in what was in those days, pretty much a “country Rarotonga” setting. Over the years, more units have been added to Muri Beachcomber and original units constantly upgraded, and now, of course, it’s surrounded by all the features of the wonderful Muri Lagoon tourist area. However, the friendly, comfortable essence of the place has never changed and today’s guests not only appreciate the original open beach front location but all the amenities and services on offer at and all around the property.

One of the many features that set Muri Beachcomber apart is the balance they achieve between the number of guests catered for and the facilities and equipment provided.  Staying here, it is almost unheard of not to be able to find a vacant sun-lounger, stand-up-paddleboard, kayak, snorkelling gear, reef shoes or a complimentary-use bicycle.  All the resort gear is kept in great shape and regularly cleaned and serviced. The units are meticulously clean and serviced every day (except Sunday) and towels and beach towels changed daily.  A light breakfast pack is delivered to each unit every day and complimentary (seasonal) fruit is often available at Reception.

Having the Night Market available four evenings a week is a welcome additional feature for guests.  Wander over next door on the market nights and enjoy a wide choice of evening meal options and either eat at the market or bring dinner back to your individual veranda (or down to one of the beach front decks) to enjoy as the sun goes down behind the inland mountains.  

Muri Beachcomber as rated a 3-star property and would probably rate higher if they had an on-site restaurant; but a restaurant is definitely not required when you consider the number and variety of food outlets nearby.

Catering for singles, couples, honeymooners and families. Families are happy in Garden Units and Family Garden Units, while the Seaview Units and Watergarden Villas are designated for adults-only (minimum age 13 years).

This is a place to stay for a week, or two (or three or more).  A stay of more than just 3 or 4 nights will soon have you in total relaxation mode and will quickly rekindle childhood memories of long, lazy summer days at the beach.
