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...

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...

We arrived late at night and were upgraded to a beach front room upstairs as a wedding was being held at the next property near the garden room we had booked. This was very thoughtful of management. The next day we were transferred to a downstairs beachfront room close to the restaurant. The staff had noticed my husband had a...
