We were here for a week and we needed a rest after a hectic two weeks travelling around the islands. I was unwell and the staff were utterly fantastic and getting the assistance I needed. My husband did three dives and the boat crew are fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and I cannot praise everyone involved with this delightful resort enough for the care and concern they showed us. The pool is lovely and the surroundings are magical with ponds and streams all merging into the shore.

How many wonderful things can I say about this resort? The staff are super attentive and extremely kind, and they make you feel right at home from the minute you get there. The rooms were spacious and clean and well air-conditioned. The Dive staff was super knowledgeable at top-notch. I can’t wait to come back! :-) Pim, Gio, Hanny, Rico, and Basra were wonderful!!!!!

Husband and I spend a short 4 days at Murex Manado and the resort and staff were beyond our expectations. Everyone was super friendly, very helpful, and very knowledgeable. The diving, although slightly off season, was amazing! The resort was clean and relaxing, and very private. The chef prepared delicious meals of both local and western cuisine. We look forward to going back with more time and also staying at the other resort on Banka.

Room Tip: the garden room was spectacular and quite private

The folks at Murex are some of the most welcoming staff ive ever come across in all my traveling. Food was better than average and plentiful. Resort was well kept and clean. If the purpose of your stay is for diving, you wont be disappointed. Great combination of macro and beautiful corals. A must visit for the avid diver!

Room Tip: Choose the refurbished rooms

From the friendly pickup at the Manado airport late in the evening to being dropped back early in the morning with a wonderful quick coffee stop at a traditional coffee shop this dive resort was faultless.
Great position,stunning views,delicious meals and incredibly attentive,friendly staff.
And the diving was the best i have experienced in the 8 years i have lived in Indonesia with the best most professional guides and boat guys.
These guys run a very professional smooth operation and its very impressive.
Our group came from Bali and all of us will return.

Room Tip: If you like a room with the sounds of rushing water ask for #160.
