Hotel Amenities

The northern end of Muri Beach faces a beautiful turquoise lagoon which at low tide is shallow enough to walk across to the uninhabited islets on the reef's edge. At high tide, the lagoon is good for swimming but there is no reef here and snorkelling is better further towards the southern end of Muri. The high tide water comes right up to the edge of the property and offers no beach area for sunbathing - however, it's a mere minute walk around the corner to the broader beach area of Muri.

Some villas have private swimming pools, but there is no communal swimming pool for tho9se that don't. On site managers are present throughout the day to assist guests. Although there is no restaurant on the property, the award winning Flame Tree Restaurant is right next door and there are several other good restaurants within walking distance.
