This hideaway is amazingly close to Manado but a lush tropical hideaway. Very relaxed and comfortable cottages with nice decks for enjoying the beautiful gardens. Service was always attentive and food was good, especially the tea time snacks. In mid-March we had several tropical storms but the Murex team never let that impact our diving or comfort. Bunaken diving was...

Our stay at Murex was excellent! The wonderful simplicity of the resort, back to nature gardens, excellent staff, tasty food and of course incredible diving! It's not trying to be a "glam" place... it has a great honesty/straightforwardness about it. Staff were so polite & helpful, local dishes tasty and the diving.... WOW! Wonderful clear water to view turtles... :-)))...

Our dive group was on Murex's "Passport to Paradise", staying at 3 dive resorts on North Sulawesi. Murex Manado was our first stop and it was a fine introduction to North Sulawesi. The grounds are lovely with lots of orchids and other flowers and streams running through the property. There are mosquitoes of course, but the staff lights repellant coils...

Very comfortable rooms, great Indonesian food and snorkelers have their own guide to show them many of the reef's inhabitants. This is a beautiful setting for a dive resort located right on the beach with easy access to boats. Dive and snorkel gear is taken care of for you and loaded on the boat. If you just snorkel this is...

Murex Manado is a great resort for diving. Only a few rooms, located in a nice garden with several ponds. Nice but small beach, great food. Diving in Bunaken National Park which you reach with a speedboat. Great walls, a lot of fish and coral.
