The introduction of the “The Wanderers” collection of experiences is underpinned by a recent study conducted by Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest loyalty program of global travel and hospitality brand Hilton. The loyalty programme discovered that, for travelers in Asia Pacific, 88% of travelers feel their “love of travel is a huge part of how they define themselves,” and the ability to explore new regions and cultures is not just part of the itinerary but a core part that fulfills their existence, and fosters open mindedness for the world around them.*
“The Wanderers” Experiences

Hosted by one of THE MURAKA butlers, guests will have the chance to connect with resort team members and their families, sample traditional cuisine and tour the island.
For those whose sense of curiosity draws them beneath the waves, marine life enthusiasts can imagine themselves documentary filmmakers for the day, with the “Film an Eco-Mentary” experience. Guests will become familiar with the depths of the Indian Ocean as they go on a guided ocean dive or snorkel complete with a film crew to capture the expedition. Ideal for guests of all ages, this unique experience can be recounted for years to come with a personalized and edited “eco-mentary” to take home as a memorable keepsake.
The remote location of THE MURAKA means that nights there are virtually free from light pollution and ideal for stargazing.
