5 Star. The most accommodating and welcoming owners ever. Both Simon and Denise are the friendliest owners that I've ever had. Always checking up on you from the day you arrive to when you leave. You can tell that they both love the island because they know all the amazing spots to snorkel too. Thank you so much! Accomodation-wise, a great location that's close to the Lagoon and clean tidy place. Everything you need is there. Source: Google Business & Maps

5 Star! What an amazing stay - can't wait to be back! Stayed here for our honeymoon and birthday celebrations . What an absolute gem - Thank you Simon and Denise for making our stay special. This place is secluded but also close enough as a great location. Close to shops and restaurants - plan ahead in the off season as lots of them will close early / stay closed. Beach and lagoon - great for snorkeling - about 10 mins walk away. Take swimming shoes if you wish to swim out as corals can be sharp. Thank you Simon and Denise for kindly letting us borrow some snorkels. We loved the warm welcome at the airport and the flower garlands - what a way to kick start our time on this beautiful island! Lovely home-like touches like flowers and lovely paintings. We were treated to fresh fruit and biscuits. Milk in the fridge came in useful. Our room was airy, spacious and had a large balcony to watch the beautiful sunrises from. We enjoyed the large TV with pre-loaded films - which had an excellent collection of many genres. We found the welcome packs and informative emails useful to find our bearings around the island. Communication with our hosts was easy. We loved how hospitable and warm Simon and Denise were. Honestly had the best time - can’t wait to be back again as you've made us fall in love with this beautiful island. Keep up the good work guys and see you soon!

5 Star. I had a great stay of 9 nights with my boyfriend. The new owners Simon and Denise are super friendly and the place was clean, surrounded by nature and a beautiful beach nearby. I highly recommend it. Source: Google Business & Maps

We stayed in the spacious Kaute apartment, which is one of 4 apartments in the Muri Retreat house. From the moment of welcome to the moment of goodbye our stay has been delightful. Denise and Simon are great in looking after their guests. We enjoyed the beautiful and lush tropical garden setting with the lovely swimming pool very much.

5 Star. We booked Muri Retreat for 4 nights and it was such a great spot to stay and explore the Cook Islands. Such a beautiful private sanctuary with spectacular views. We very much enjoyed our stay with the pool and bbq area. Simon and Denise were fantastic hosts, very friendly and so helpful. We definitely recommend Muri Retreat and would come here with our wider family too. Source: Google Business & Maps

5 Star! Muri Retreat Apartments have new owners Simon and Denise. They took over ownership the day after we arrived. Friendly and very helpful. Could not of asked for better hosts. We even celebrated part of New Years Eve with them. The 4 separate apartments can be used individually. But we used it for a group and hired all 4. We had the whole property to ourselves. It was perfect for our group. We took a Chilli bin with food over with us, and even cooked a roast lamb one night. The pool was a lifesaver in the warm tropical heat. With private beautiful gardens. We spent alot of time upstairs on the deck taking in the amazing views. Location was close enough to walk if you wanted, to all the things on offer at Muri. Cafes, shops, night markets, resorts, beach, car/bike rentals. A great property with awesome friendly hosts. I highly recommend this property. Especially if you have a group that want to stay together. We would love to come back. Especially as Simon and Denise have some awesome plans of upgrading a few things at the property. We were very happy with our stay. Thank you Source: Google Business & Maps

Place have everything you need for "perfect holiday in paradise"! Amazing staff, so helpful and there for you in any moment If required, place is so relaxing and peaceful nested between various types of tropical plants with birds song all day, truly amazing. Location is so close to Muri beach market and main beach (10 min walk) but also to around island bus stations. Thanks for having me at your place, definitely will choose your place for my next stay on Raro!
