There were 29 of us in total at the resort and it was MORE than amazing. The staff were not only helpful they were welcoming and friendly. We spent 6 nights relaxing, exploring and having an amazing time. Our wedding was held on the deck overlooking the lagoon and we were so thrilled with all the amazing work the ladies...

Everything about Muri Beach Resort was amazing. We had the two bedroomed villa round the corner from the office and it was a really great location - close to the pool and the restaurant and with lovely sea views from the lounge and even better when seated on the loungers on the deck. Very comfortable beds and a good arrangement...

Greeted at the airport by someone with a Muri Beach sign, great first impression. We then made our way to the van where we had to wait 40 mins as there were not enough seats, yet they knew how many of us were arriving?. Walking into the resort it looked great, grounds were beautiful and the sun was shining. We...

We stayed at the Muri Beach resort for my daughters wedding. Most of my daughters wedding guests stayed at the Resort and it was just a wonderful setting for the days before her wedding, getting to know each other and spend a relaxing time in such pleasant surroundings. The whole resort is beautifully set out, the gardens are immaculate. The...

Having never been to the Cook Islands before we choose Muri Beach Resort to have our wedding ceremony, wedding dinner and accomodation from pictures and information on the internet. What a fantastic decision it was as everything lived up to our expectations and more. Planning a wedding via email turned out to be a breeze with Jane (you rock) and...

We've stayed at Muri Beach resort twice. Very cool !! Best place on the island to stay. The lagoon is one of the best places to snorkel I've ever been. The staff even rented their car to us for the little travel we did aroundthe island. But clearly the best location is Muri Beach and Lagoon. You can join the...

Around 40 of us stayed at Muri Beach Resort for a wedding. We all had the most amazing time for our 9 days here. The photos on their website do not do it justice. The place has been done up recently and it really is great! We took all out own meat from NZ and BBQ'd a few nights. The...

If you are looking for a comfortable resort where the guest is the priority look no further than Muri Beach Resort. It is located on the Muri Lagoon with 1-2 bedroom groundlevel bungalows which are self-contained either facing the pool, the lagoon or the tropical gardens. The Australian owners and local staff look after their guests superbly...you become one of...
