We spent 16 days at Muri Retreat and didn't want to go home!! We chose to walk or bus everywhere and not hire a scooter or car as alot of people do. Why rush around the Island? What's the hurry? We were there to relax and slow down the pace of our lives, which we certainly did do! Muri Retreat...

We stayed at Muri Retreat for a week at the end of our round the world trip. It was just what we needed. Peaceful location, stunning views of the lagoon from our balcony, and a large comfortable, well equipped room. We were greeted by Phoebe, one of the owners, who made us feel immediately at home, and as though it...

This place really is a winner. Whilst there is much talk about staying on the beach itself, murie is set back on a hillside with views to the ocean and is so peaceful. And only a short walk down the hill to the beach itself. The rooms are very well kept and equipped. We stayed downstairs but I am sure...

Together with 5 others, we booked all four apartments at Muri Retreat for a 9 day holiday with 7 of our friends (2 of our number were just down the lane). Notwithstanding the group holiday, this was such a romantic setting! I couldn't take enough photos to capture the beauty of the older style building, with its balconies and patios,...

We spent a week of our honeymoon in one of the upper apartments which had a large patio deck with a breath taking view of the ocean and mountain side. It was incredible to wake up every morning, sit outside with a fresh cup of coffee and eat breakfast, while embracing our little piece of paradise. The room was very...

We travelled to Rarotonga in August 2009 for a family wedding and Muri Retreat was a fantastic choice for our 8 night stay there. We stayed in the Kaute apartment. Steve and Phoebe were absolutely marvellous hosts - we certainly felt very looked after! The apartment was impeccably spotless, modern, had fantastic views and was set in a lovely environment...

From the very first email up until check-out Phoebe and Steve were so helpful and friendly. They just made everything so easy. If you want a peaceful and relaxed holiday you will not be disappointed. Situated away from the hustle but still just a short stroll to the beach. The apartment was excellent - very clean and tidy - and...

Phoebe and Steve obviously make a real effort to welcome guests, and are around daily to chat and help out if necessary. We were really pleased to stay here; the room (first floor) was spacious and well equipped with a good shower, and the balcony was the perfect place to chill out. Enjoyed use of the BBQ and pool, although...

My wife and I stayed at Muri Retreat for 5 nights at the beginning of May. On the first morning we woke to a beautiful sunrise, serenity and just the chooks having a conversation in the lush surrounds. The retreat is set back a short walk from the main road and was in a perfect location. Phoebe, Steve and their...
