Rooms & Rates

Muri Shores is an adults only property consisting of 4 self contained absolute beach front villas and 2 self contained lagoon view villas located directly behind the beachfront villas.  The villa size is 55m2 which includes a lovely deck to enjoy the lagoon view from.  


Firstly the accommodation is spotless. I have very high standards.
Well equipped kitchen with all matching utensils, pots and pans were plentiful.
Plate’s mugs glasses all matching. Everything provided from clothes drying racks, plenty of coat hangers, iron, many tea towels, sprays, cleaning products etc.
MURI SHORES is 5 star, self contained, and generous in heart.
Good water pressure.
Fun chickens clucking about.
Air conditioning worked well (at the moment I think it's only available in the 2 higher back villas behind the front beach villas).
Lovely outside patio seating with great views of all the excitement on the Muri Lagoon, little glass bottom boats going out daily with singing, kayaks, snorkelers etc.
Muri night market is directly behind the Muri Shores property - so much fun buying the food (and extra for midnight snacks).
Easy walking distance to convenience shops, atm, and plush restaurants as well as takeaways.
MURI IS THE PLACE to stay!!!!
Now, about the room, great Polynesian flavour with palm frond roofs, new bathroom well kitted and fitted. Luxe 60mm tiles on floors. Big king bed, beautiful matching linen and towels - including beach towels.
For cooking there is a fridge freezer, 4 element gas stove top. Good size new bench top work spaces. Kitchen and whole villa has a well maintained new feeling about it. Flat screen TV. All has been well thought out and a quality fit out.
Beach loungers and kayaks free for guests to use.
Service : Krystina was a gem from before the holiday and throughout, organizing a rental car to be delivered to our first nights accommodation venue for our 4 night stay. There is a shortage of cars to rent so this was an over and beyond help to us.
Further to this after 7 days in Aitutaki we had no accommodation for one last night (and a whole day flying out at 8pm) we told Krystina and she organized a stay for us at Ocean Breeze it too was great accommodation.
Krystina even organized her Uncle to transfer us in his taxi, he was waiting when we arrived - yet another example of seamless perfect service.
Thank you for your 'over and above' attitude, your excellent accommodation we would recommend you to all, you truly made our holiday work for us.
This was my best overseas holiday ever in 33 years of many OS holidays

We spent 3 lovely weeks at Muri Shores in one of the beachfront villas, the villas are impeccably kept, exceptionally clean and spacious. The garden and surrounds are lovely too. Well done to Edna and Albert the on-site staff. The gracious owners Krystina and Eugene were extremely helpful throughout our booking process and stay.

Entertaining watching the Lagoon Tour boats go out and come back each day but they don't sail on Saturdays.

Night markets are directly behind and suggest get there early, around 5ish to select your food. The Sailing Club and restaurant is right next door and cafes and other restaurants are within walking distance.

Thank you once again to the Muri Shores Team, Edna, Albert, Krystina and Eugene.

We will definitely be back to stay in the beachside paradise again

We had such a wonderful time and will certainly be back! I made a bit of a mistake on arrival as I checked in 1 day too early, but Krystina and her lovely husband were awesome and accommodating despite this! They helped us check into somewhere else for 1 night in the meantime as Muri Shores was booked out (for a cheaper rate than on the other places website, too!).


The bed is comfy, you fall asleep to the sound of the waves, and wake up to the sound of cheeky roosters.

We had a lovely welcome platter in the fridge of cereal, milk, and fruits.
You are right next to Muri Markets and close to Mooring Fish Cafe, which both kept our bellies full.

There is no other view like the one you wake up to of the sun shining above clear blue water between a set of palm trees...... Dreamy!

And the free kayaks and bikes to use are a cherry on top.

Overall a perfect holiday ❤️ thank you!

This ticked all our boxes. Clean, quiet and a lovely location.


Krystina organized our airport pick up and as it was my husbands 60th birthday, she got a cake delivered to the villa on the day. That cake was amazing!


Great location here right on the lagoon at Muri, dry sand beach out front.


Other resorts are walking distance away and the Muri Night markets are directly behind the villas.

We loved and enjoyed everything about Muri Shores.

Its location (on the beach, behind the Muri Night Market, excellent Resorts about for eating choices and cocktails. The Raro bus at the gate for trips around the Island. And then the Lagoon. Wonderful for all the water sports, lazing in the warm waters and great snorkeling off the Islands in the Lagoon.

The accommodation of Muri Shores - perfect. They have everything you need for a wonderful relaxing holiday. We were in back unit with a lovely big deck and sea views to eat our breakfast/ meals.


The until is a perfect size, spacious, with full kitchen and bathroom, plus bikes, kayaks.


Wonderfully clean, lovely staff and also have recycling options which we really appreciated.

We especially enjoyed this property being discreet and all units separate from each other.

Krystina is a delightful person, helpful and just wants you to have a great holiday... which we did.

Can not recommend Muri Shores highly enough
