Location & Situation

Situated in the beautiful southern area of Muri Beach. A quiet secluded location away from the larger resort accommodation. Excellent restaurants, cafés and an array of amenities are within a 2-10 minute radius of the property.

The two properties are a short distance apart of 290 metres. Set in tropical landscaped gardens beautifully accented with limestone masonry walls, gated courtyards, and parking areas.

All villas have decks that step right on to the absolutely pristine white sands of the lagoon edge with all the villas being only a few metres at the most from the water.

The resort has been the location for many weddings.


Each well-appointed villa has two spacious bedrooms and two en-suite bathrooms to choose from. En-suite bathrooms have double basins, marble tops and glass showers.  All bedrooms open onto an outdoor living space which either faces the lagoon or overlooks the private rear courtyard

A fully-equipped gourmet villa kitchen is featured as part of the spacious living/dining area which flows seamlessly onto the beachfront deck.  

The interiors feature luxurious furnishings & finishes, high vaulted ceilings and marble flooring throughout. The impressive architectural design harmonises with the natural environment using local materials, marble, and limestone

A private courtyard with swimming pool is at the rear of each villa, complete with waterfalls cascading off large rock features into the pool and streams – some meandering right through villas.

Five beachfront villas have the addition of hot spa pools, some on the lagoon side of the villa and some sitting in the tropical gardens.

The platinum beachfront villa has even more to offer.  Private movie theatre with full projection, surround sound and 2.5 metre screen, and a 3 metre high Interior Waterfall flowing off rocks into fish laden stream.

This fabulous 5-star villa resort for sale is a MUST SEE!
