The Muri Beach Hotel is one of Cook Islands’ singularly beautiful adults’ only resort. It is located on the Muri Beach in Rarotonga, a long stretch of golden sand lining a stunning lagoon with clear blue waters.
The holiday starts even before reaching the resort, as travellers are treated to contrasting vistas of a blue lagoon glittering in the afternoon sun on one side and lush, forested mountains on the other side. A half an hour ride from the Rarotonga International Airport to the Muri Beach Resort serves as the perfect appetiser of sights and sounds to come, as the route circles almost half the small island!
The beach resort is situated right next to the lagoon, so its beachfront villas are literally sand-in-the-feet the moment travellers step out of their accommodations. It embraces the theme of ‘island time’, so there is plenty of activities and opportunities which are leisurely and help unwinding from stresses of modern living. The resort terms itself as a ‘aquatic playground’, where guests can take full advantage of the lagoon’s clear azure waters to swim, kitesurf, snorkel, dive, surfboard or just paddle their way around for fun in a kayak for two.
At the same time, the Muri Beach Resort has limited its inventory to just 30 rooms. Guests can choose from Premier Garden Rooms, Pool View Rooms and Deluxe Beachfront Rooms, all of whom provide mesmerising views of the lagoon beach, pool and the landscaped gardens of the resort. For meals and drinks, the resort’s in-house restaurant Silver Sands has a menu which changes daily to surprise and delight the gastronomes in all visitors. Even better, evening meals are often accompanied by live cultural entertainment (Sunday’s Reef and Beef Night with live musical performances by Duo Henzart & Destiny is especially recommended!).
The resort is also a great option for meetings, conferences, incentive trips and group travel. For large contingents, the entire resort can be booked exclusively!
