Hotel Amenities

This small family owned retreat is located right in the heart of Muri Beach and fronting a pretty stretch of sand screened by lush vegetation ensuring privacy. The sandy bottom lagoon is the best spot for swimming in Aitutaki and there's good snorkelling around the offshore islet (100 metres from shoreline).

Guests enjoy direct access to Muri Beach from beside the small private swimming pool and can use kayaks to explore the lagoon.
