Murex Dive Resort was one of the very first operations to plumb the depths and beauties of Bunaken Marine Park, and it continues to offer a comfortable, efficient, and cost-effective means of diving Bunaken and Bangka. The rooms are small but well air-conditioned, each with private bathrooms. Lush gardens are full of flowering plants and butterflies, and a large coconut plantation next door makes for resort privacy and lots of interesting bird life. A serene oceanside breakfast area has recently been added to supplement the original open-air dining room. The boat ride from Murex Resort to the Bunaken dive sites will take one hour or a bit more in the simple local-style boats. A speedboat is used for day trips to access the superb diving around Bangka Island.
