COVID-19 Updates: 

The Indonesian Government is not currently issuing Visa On Arrival for overseas visitors. We will keep you posted on any updates as they happen.

Over the last weeks and months, our staff teams have received extensive training and education regarding COVID-19 and preventative measures and best practices. We have a comprehensive set of precautionary procedures in place for reopening at both Murex Bangka and Murex Manado in relation to resort and diving operations.

This is the first time that Murex Dive Resorts have closed both resorts and during this period we continue to support our staff as much as we can. Danny, Angelique and family are at home in Manado and General Manager Thomas is at Murex Manado along with small local teams who are keeping the resorts ready for welcoming guests as soon as we are able to do so.
