Everything I wanted and more loved the bungalow right on the beach clean modern and conveniently located, so many activities to choose from, just relax, walk on the beach or swim like I did. Must try the show and buffet at the Te Vara Nui Village just walking distance from the pad need to book! Best way to get around the island is rent a scooter from Polynesian rentals 2 minutes walk from the bungalow. Muri beach is a Great place to come with your family or friends. It was a great escape for me so just to unwind thank you Kystina and Eugene lovely young couple, really enjoyed the extras, basket of fruit on arrival and more. Going to miss Muri beach I'll be back and definitely recommend staying at Muri Shores! Details about the country I was here 20 years ago and it has Changed so much , more commercialised almost like a tropical New Zealand. People here understand what tourists need so that's good. The locals in general are not as friendly as the people in Samoa with the big smiles! To compare Samoa is unspoiled, more remote, more variety and very laid back life style.
So it's different, many tourists compare Samoas prices to other islands in the South Pacific and the Cook Islands are very expensive for the show I paid $90nzd and in Samoa for a similar show it was $85st which is $50 Ndz less, I believe your $$$ go farther in Samoa, good to experience all islands otherwise you won't know! One thing that stands out in Rarotonga
The most here is the best beaches and safe swimming lagoons!
You will get exactly what you expected-pure heaven! When we arrived, we were not disappointed and it took us a moment to take in the beauty of our surroundings! The room was beautiful and clean. That evening we were invited to eat with Krystina and Eugene and their family right on the property-we felt very welcome to the island right away. The first morning we went right across the street and rented mopeds for the whole week we planned to be here. It was so great to get around the island whenever we wanted to. We spent many hours just floating in the water right in the front of our bungalow.....and walking out to the islands. Make sure you go to the dinner in the park right in front of the bungalows(between the bungalows and the main road). It was on 3 days the week we were there-it was some of the best meals we had on the island, and only $10/meal. We always got the meal to go and sat on the deck of our bungalow-why would we want to be anywhere else? Make sure you try the banana cake and chocolate coconut cake-you won't be disappointed! We really enjoyed the laid back relaxed atmosphere of the people we met on the island-there is such a lesson to be learned with the lifestyle that is led on the island. Since I have been home I am trying to keep the thought of that atmosphere in my mind.
Be confident when you book this accommodation as you will not be disappointed-it has everything you need and more. Thank you so much to Krystina and Eugene-it was great to meet you and I hope to one day cross paths with you again!!
