Island Wedding and Reception Packages

Dreaming of the perfect, romantic wedding in a tropical island paradise? Miles of white sandy beaches edged by palm trees swaying in the soft island breeze, overlooking the sparkling turquoise waters of the South Pacific, Muri Beach Resort is the dream destination to celebrate your romantic union.

We specialise in coordinating elegant and romantic island weddings and island style receptions.

Muri Beach Resort is your perfect wedding location - imagine your ceremony on our beachfront deck overlooking a tropical palm fringed island or on our white sandy beach under the coconut trees with the tropical island backdrop. Both options offer you the magical setting for your dream wedding.

Let your personal on-site wedding coordinator take care of everything for you from the formalities of registering for the marriage license, booking your celebrant, choosing bouquets, creating the perfect relaxed setting, arranging those extra special touches and of course your after ceremony celebrations, that will give you a lifetime of memories in one day. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the romance and tranquillity of our beautiful island paradise.

Celebrate with family and friends at our poolside venue or an intimate beachfront gathering. Experience the Polynesian flare for your island celebration and make your special day a truly memorable one. We can cater for groups of up to 90 from a casual cocktail party to a formal dinner style celebration. Our on-site wedding co-ordinator can take care of everything for you.
