Great location for family and couples with very adequate accommodation. Staff are wonderful and always with a big smile when greeting you. Town (Muri village) just a quick walk along the lagoon or just down the road. Everything you need is close by: laundry, dairy, pharmacy, cafes, resturants, car/bike hire etc. Rooms have all the amenities you need as usually... More

This was a perfect match for us. This private, comfy, self contained unit had everything we needed including a blender for smoothies, resort BBQ area, and a bowl of fresh fruit.

If you ever have the opportunity to go to the Cook Islands Kura's Kabanas is a great place to stay. Everyone has their own idea of what level of comfort they prefer when vacationing. For us we wanted a clean hut/cabin/kabana with kitchen for self catering, that would be near the lagoon and close to a nice beach, at a... More

This was like a 'home away from home'. We were picked up at the airport (3.20am) and transferred to our Kabana (transfers are available on request). There are 4 seperate detached units with a garden view, but also some beach views. Grounds have plenty of open area. Close to Muri beach, kayaks available, BBQ set-up if required. Rooms are spacious... More

A perfect place to stay right on the beach with kayaks provided and easy walking distance to restaurants in Muri . You can walk to the outer islands (called 'motus') of Muri lagoon at low tide (don't forget to bring reef shoes) Staff are amazing and made me feel so at home. Kabanas are lovely, clean, tidy and good value... More

Our stay at Kura's kabanas was very nice. The first day we came there it rained, but the kabanas are so comfortable and the verandas are so spacious and well equiped, that we didn't even mind the rain. It was nice to stay under the roof and watch the beautiful sea in front! Fresh fruit was supplied, a blender for... More

You really can't beat Kuras Kabanas for the value and location on beautiful Muri Beach, they are super clean and well laid out bungalows right next to the beach on the lagoon. The bbq hut is an added bonus right beside the beach, so you don't have to cook inside. You can suntan on the deck or watch the moon... More
