On behalf of Muri Beach Club Hotel, World Resorts of Distinction (WRD), is thrilled to unveil a slate of new developments from the premium adults-only (18 plus) hotel in the Cook Islands, Muri Beach Club Hotel.

Located at the heart of one of Rarotonga’s most outstanding natural features – Muri Lagoon – the boutique hotel has introduced a new, environmentally-friendly toiletries collection called Pina Colada.

In an effort to provide guests with an unparalleled in-room experience, the hotel has recently upgraded its beds and bedding, and all Beachfront and Pool View Rooms now have the ability to have superking splitables, making room-sharing even easier for group bookings.

All bedding has been replaced with Sleepy Heads’ plush range, and lodge pillows – both extra-long and regular – are now on offer.

The Muri Beach Club Hotel guest experience is also elevated by the introduction of new Wi-Fi offers in room, and 24/7 access to the hotel’s onsite gift shop, which is convenient for late-night arrivals and early-morning departures.

For a limited time the hotel is offering up to 25 per cent off accommodation for travel between now and 31 March 2019 and 1 November to 31 December 2019. For more information including full terms and conditions, please contact Narelle on narelle@wrd.com.au
