It was a pleasure to host you both during your holiday. I'm so pleased you made use of the snorkeling gear and kayaks etc to enhance your experience. You picked a really hot time to visit, even the locals were feeling the heat. It was great that you made use of the aircon. Hope to see you again one day....

We enjoyed our stay here in a one bedroom villa, we could make our breakie and coffee. The aircon in the bedroom was well received. Top location and the pool setting excellent. A bonus we could use a washing machine. We utilized the local bus so easy to do. Great to have use of kayaks. Thanks Fern and staff.

Beautiful lagoon setting but also in the heart of Muri which is a lovely little town offering everything you need but without the tourist hype. Villa is well cared for and presented and management is extremely helpful. Thanks Fern Martin Cook

I must say after reading some reviews about this place I was a little apprehensive. No need. I have had a wonderful time in a resort that has exceeded my expectations on every count.

Beautiful views. Excellent location right in Muri but around the corner from the main beach with lots of privacy. Great pool.

The staff at Manea made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. Simple things like bringing us freshly cut bananas to going out of their way and waking up at 3.30am and driving us to the airport when our shuttle didn't show up and driving us back again when our flight was cancelled. I couldn't recommend them more!

“Unit 4 was perfect to access the pool and beach. The one bedroom was a perfect size for a couple....I'm missing it already.”

“The lagoon view villas have better chairs in the living room, and I think the wind helps cool them down a little more than the others.”
  • TV was pretty comical. Very old school, but there's only one channel and it's pretty bad
  • Comfy chairs. The non-lagoon view rooms have other wicker chairs (not as comfy as these deep one
  • Spacious kitchen with everything I needed
  • Ceiling fan really helped keep the air fresh and cool
  • View out to the lagoon from living room
  • Bed is 2 twin beds pushed together. Not uncomfortable but not the best I've slept in either.
