San Diego, CA
Reviewed 7 February 2017

Murex Bangka was the second dive resort on our 3-resort "Passport to Paradise", and we really enjoyed our stay. It's very small and intimate; all the duplexes face the beach. Rooms are simple, attractive and very comfy.There are a lot of nice touches to the rooms, like towels formed into bird shapes on the beds. Every room has a private,...

The rooms of this resort sit right on the beach so you have a full ocean view all the time. As with the other Murex resort in Manado the food is excellent. The staff is friendly and accommodating to your needs. Snorkelers will have their own guide on boat dives which take you to a variety of places. But if...

This was our "second stop" on our Passort to Paridse trip and we absolutely loved it. We were brought over from Manado Murex by boat and did two dives on the way. One of the dives was an" exploratory dive" with one the co-owners of the resorts. The diving in this area was as awesome as the diving at Manado...

If you are looking for a quiet and deserted place to enjoy tropical water and diving, this is the place to be. Great location on the south side of bangka, far away from any civilization :) although WIFI is available :( Nice little beach, and comfortable bungalows. All needed comfort was in bungalows (hot water, drinking water, airco, fan, etc.)....

The accommodation is basic however the bed is soft and big, and we loved the "outdoor" bathroom. They also have nice sun beds and paddle boards for those sunny hours when you're not diving. Good diving boats, 4 dives a day if you are min 2 divers and friendly staff. Good food and snacks, but for longer stays the buffet...

I have rated this resort as very good in the context of being a diving oriented resort in a remote location. You come here for the great diving, knowing full well that its focus is on the diving experience and catering for the needs of divers, not trying to meet the needs of people on a 5 star luxury holiday....
