My wife, 7 month old daughter and I came here for 8 nights in Feb 2017 and absolutely loved the place. First - the staff here are amazingly friendly, both here and at the sister resort Nautilus where we spent a bit of time in their restaurant. The staff were professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and when we had a minor...

We arrived MBR through complimentary transfer service around midnight. The room was spacious, clean, and everything looked great, including a welcome letter with our names and a brief of the hotels services. The morning after, we had complimentary breakfast at the Nautilus hotel (same owner) and it good to have coffee, fruits, croissants, ham, cheese, etc. Muri Beach Resort is...

This is a great place to go if you're looking for a few days away from the world. We enjoyed a luxury beach side cottage and although we had an initial hiccup where we had to change rooms everything else was perfect and as expected. The room was adequate with a nice comfy large bed and shower & bath facilities....

I met my parent's who travelled from Northern Ireland, and my family from NZ at Muri Beach Resort. We all really enjoyed our stay in a 2 bedroom and a garden villa.

Very disappointed with Muri Beach Resort. We didn't end up have our holiday in September 2016 as my grandfather passed away unexpectedly, very soon before our departure. Although I understand hotels have booking and cancellation policies for a reason, I expected at least a bit of compassion. Instead, we were charged 50% of our booking and I was sent a...

Muri Beach Resort is awesome. Felt incredibly relaxed the whole time we were there. The staff are so friendly and accomodating. The only thing I will say is I think the bathroom needs a little bit of a renovation. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to others. Will be back
