Discover Murex Bangka, just 90minutes from Manado airport. Situated on a palm-fringed white sand beach, Murex Bangka offers a true Robinson Crusoe style experience. Drift away in a hammock while listening to the waves lapping on the shore, swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters in front of the resort, explore the ocean by paddle-board or enjoy a sun-downer while watching the glowing sunset over the ocean.

Murex Bangka offers a choice of charming and comfortable, traditionally styled timber bungalows as well as ocean front duplex rooms, which have adjoining doors and are perfect for families. Rooms have private verandas where you can sit back and relax in comfort as well as en-suite hot water bathrooms, air conditioning throughout the night, and either a king size or twin beds. Upgrade to the new, deluxe cottages for a more modern decor. Whichever room you stay in you'll be just steps away from the crystal clear water.

Please be aware: Murex Bangka is the only resort on Bangka Island able to offer hot water, en-suite showers and air conditioning. Power operates in the rooms from 5pm to 7am and additionally in the restaurant and camera room during lunch time hours.

Murex Bangka offers buffet style dining which combines a tantalizing mix of International and Asian flavours using fresh local ingredients. The team of western trained chefs are able to cater for special dietary requirements upon request. Bangka Island may be remote but the flavours delivered by the chefs are definitely not. The resort also boasts a designated camera room, beach hammocks, sun loungers and indoor and outdoor dining spaces which are perfect for catching the sunset with an ice cold drink. There are a range of land tours for those who would like to see more of North Sulawesi. All tours are guided - explore the Tangkoko Nature Reserve, the Minahasan Highlands (markets, villages, lakes, mountains and historical sites), Mahawu Volcano, or try a cultural tour and cooking classes in resort.

Tailor-made packages are available as are night dives, day trips to Bunaken and the Lembeh Strait, PADI courses, snorkeling, land tours and combination packages with Murex Manado, Lembeh Resort or take a Passport to Paradise and visit all 3.

As the first operator to dive the sites around Bangka Island, Murex have been exploring the area since 1990 so you can rest assured that you will be diving with experienced and professional dive guides throughout your stay. Not only do the Dive Guides have thousands of dives experience in the region, they also undergo intensive training programs, which include marine biology and underwater photography training to ensure that you receive the best underwater experience possible. Just like you, diving is their passion.

From arrival in resort you won't need to lift a bag or carry or wash your gear as the dive guides strive to anticipate your every need. Dive Guides also check the conditions each day and plan accordingly to take you to the best sites at the right time. Your diving program can be tailored to suit your needs with options for single dives, double dive trips or full day excursions with lunch served on the boat.



The kaleidoscopic reefs and pinnacles for which Bangka is so famous are right on your doorstep. Year round warm water combined with good visibility makes Bangka suitable for all levels of diver and for those who enjoy something more challenging there are also some exhilarating drift diving sites. Highlights of diving in Bangka include an explosion of colourful soft corals, three species of pygmy seahorses, schooling fish, reef sharks, eagle rays, dugongs, passing pelagics and a plethora of other critters including numerous nudibranch species, soft coral crabs, ghost pipefish and a variety of frogfish, crustacean and cephalopod species. Murex Bangka House Reef is just a step off the beach and with a white sand bottom, colourful corals and lots of fish it's not only a great dive site but also an excellent spot for snorkelling.
