She took our bags and we walked out to the van, loaded up and off we went. She had her cool music playing and waving to everyone she knew on the way to...

Kia Orana Uniquelady01, thank you for sharing your review with the Trip Advisor community. Great that you loved the Kia Orana Spirit of Muri Beach Resort and the whole of Rarotonga!

We stayed 10 nights at Muri Beach and this small resort was excellent. You could self cater or eat at aqua cafe, or walk to the sister resort The Nautilus for a fantastic meal or swim in the pool. It's so close to so many activities and things to do. A great place to have a relaxing holiday
