Thanks to Murex and the crew and Danny for organizing a great day of recon in the Manado area and some amazing diving. We didn't get to stay at the resort but their boat and staff were very knowledgable and safe and showed us an amazing dive site! Look forward to another dive trip and staying at their resort next...

Murex Manado is one of those delightfully unexpected places that just appears with a single turn off the main road, instantly transporting you to a secluded little diver's paradise built right on the beach. We were greeted with refreshing coconut welcome drinks and the days just kept getting better from there. The staff members are kind and accommodating, the food...

This place is beautiful. Gorgeous little villas that have an unbelievable quiet given their proximity to the city. Absolutely excellent food morning, noon and night. The staff is trained in western style customer service which is very rare in the remote areas of Indonesia. All in all, Murex has surpassed all of my expectations on both of my visits. And...

This is a small dive resort. The grounds are well maintained. Although, it is close to a main road, it is quiet and peaceful. The room and dining facilities are adequate but outdated. The food is repetitive and boring. The dive facilities are much better. The boats are in good condition and limited to ten divers each. They are a...

Thank you for your review and we're happy you enjoyed diving with us. Yes, we agree our rooms and indoor dining facilities require renovation. Rest assured, we're on it. Since opening in 1988, we always have served local, fresh Indonesian cuisine. We are continuously seeking ways to improve presentation and have started offering select international dishes.

Murex Manado and Murex Bangka will stay forever in our hearts. We had a fantastic stay with friendly and professional staff, amazingly delicious local food and excellent diving guides and crew. Both locations have their own charm and unique diving sites! Both teams are extremely flexible and resourceful to accommodate the individual needs of every guest!

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... :-)))...
