Attractions and Activities

Lunch breakfast and dinner are buffet style at Murex Dive Resort Banka Island. The western trained chefs prepare Indonesian, international, and Asian dishes.  Wifi is available at the restaurant, but since you came out here to get away from it all, don't expect WiFi to be fiber optic. Think Robinson Caruso with a fair touch of luxury, complimentary drinking water, and a weekly BBQ on the beach. Above all, your big afternoon survival issue will be do you prefer a hammock or lounge chair on the beach? You can also go swimming, snorkeling, try standing on a paddle board, or just relax and get a massage. The sun sets too fast, when you are working hard.
