A couple of things in the room we couldn't get going was the radio, the t.v had 3 channels 1 of them was the movie channel which we...

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

Spent 5 nights here in early March 2017. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful - they are a big part of the 5 star rating I've given. The room we were given was perfect for our small group, beds arranged so we didn't have to share, well air conditioned room and the windows and doors are screened to...

My wife, 7 month old daughter and I came here for 8 nights in Feb 2017 and absolutely loved the place.

We arrived MBR through complimentary transfer service around midnight. The room was spacious, clean, and everything looked great, including a welcome letter with our names and a brief of the hotels services. The morning after, we had complimentary breakfast at the Nautilus hotel (same owner) and it good to have coffee, fruits, croissants, ham, cheese, etc. Muri Beach Resort is...

This is a great place to go if you're looking for a few days away from the world. We enjoyed a luxury beach side cottage and although we had an initial hiccup where we had to change rooms everything else was perfect and as expected. The room was adequate with a nice comfy large bed and shower & bath facilities....
