Great second place to stay on our month holiday in Raro. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was an issue. We were even shown how to husk a coconut. Right on the beach and very close to lots of restaurants

We were in unit 2 and the view and location on Muri lagoon was amazing. Vee, the hostess was very helpful. Bungalow was clean with well equipped kitchen and bathroom. South pacific is rustic so if you are looking for five star go to New York.

Excellent location at the Muri lagoon end of the island so convenient for swimming kayaking paddleboarding and snorkeling. Close to the Muri night markets, Koka cruises, and Te Vara Nui. A small deep pool is great to have a swim in after you have had enough of the sea or lounge

Kia Orana, Thank you for your enquiry. We have 2 Lotus Bungalows side by side that are located by a lovely little stream. A small arch bridge close by connects our beach property/office to our main road property. From here a pathway leads you between the Lotus Bungalows, pass reception to the swimming pool,onto the sun tanning deck and down to the beach. Less than two minutes walk. Wifi is located at the reception area which is less than one minute away from the Lotus Bungalows. This is available for houseguests 24/7 and they will only need to purchase a time code at a nearby Bluesky Telecom branch or go online and pay via credit card. Hopefully this has been of some use to you! Warm regards, Vina Macfarlane

Kia Orana Bea, The nearest Cook Islands Christian Church (renown for their singing) in Muri is about 5 minutes drive from Muri Beach Hideaway. The lovely limestone building is located across from the Avana Harbor with morning service beginning at 10.00am. Afterwards all visitors are invited to a morning tea and to mingle with the parish. As for Christmas lunch - there are a number of restaurants and hotels that will advertise their Christmas menu closer to the day. Warm regards, Vina Macfarlane

"Bungalow #1 is 100% the best and most private one and only one that leads onto the beach."
"The beach front room was fantastic, the deck was on the beach but yet private"
"Muri beach can be quite windy so the lotus bungalows at the back of the property are more sheltered."
"Bungalow one has the best view and privacy, next best would be bungalow two or the garden view which are also quite private."
"The lotus rooms were great. More private than the beach or pool front rooms."
