Good, clean, spacious accommodation with a little, well resourced kitchen. the Hideaway is set in lovely gardens, with a small pool, and located right on a sandy beach. A minutes walk across the stream and garden brings you to the main road and a nearby bus stop for the wonderful Cook's Bus Service which goes both anticlockwise and clockwise and...

Kia Orana! Thank you so much for your lovely review! It is true that we are well located along what is arguably the best area on Rarotonga and close to all amenities. I'm so glad your bungalow met all expectations and Ofelia our Senior Housekeeper is excellent at making sure everything is clean when servicing. It's great to hear you...

We had a wonderful holiday here. Vina is a very warm, welcoming person who goes the extra mile to provide a wonderful experience. This includes thoughtful additions like fresh fruit, a smoothie maker and mosquito coils. We loved the spacious, private rooms, along with the pool, snorkelling gear, kayaks and deck chairs. The bungalows are exceptionally clean and we really...

Having a delightful stay at Muri Beach Hideaway. We are in one of the Lotus Bungalows and recommend these. More private than the beachside bungalows. Plenty of space for a couple, perfectly adequate bathroom and kitchen facilities, comfortable bed. The host Vina really friendly and helpful. Excellent choice to stay here.

Vina, the owner, was so warm and welcoming when we arrived and Muri Beach Hideaway is in such an amazing location. Vina provided us with lots of lovely home grown fruit and filled the fridge with water, milk and juice for our arrival. We really appreciated this factor as nothing is open when you arrive late at night so it...

In August we spent 14 nights at Muri Beach Hideaway and it was a delightful experience. The location is incredible - walking distance of any number of shops, restaurants and cafes and right on the beach. The bungalows are extremely comfortable and Vina is an absolute treasure who couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. We loved all the animals and...

I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Muri Beach Hideaway. I have to say that anyone who makes any negative comment in their review about this location is simply silly and can be ignored. This place is heaven on earth. I was completely blown away by how much the bungalow, and the island of Rarotonga in general, exceeded my...

We had a good time at MBH. The location is really what you are paying for here - right in the heart of Muri and within short walking distance of the night market and numerous restaurants and cafes. You're also right next to the beach which overlooks the lagoon - absolutely stunning! There are kayaks, snorkels, masks, and reef shoes...
