After half a day at Sokala you will wish you could stay ... forever! The wooden villas are elegant and comfortable, designed to make you feel instantly at home with a mix of timber and stone floors, a nice bathroom and open kitchen, large decks outside and plenty of room to enjoy the gorgeous views over Muri lagoon. The villas... More

This is our fourth trip to Rarotonga and we have always stayed at Sokala villas. During our very first visit, we tried other places but as soon as we came to Sokala, we found what we were looking for and have been coming here ever since. The best part of staying at Sokala is that Lawrance and his team take... More

My husband and I stayed at Sokala in May 2012 and got married on the small beach. Lawrence, Sarina and the staff made our entire holiday and wedding absolutely perfect. We booked a lagoon view villa before the wedding and a beachfront villa with private pool for after (to save a bit of cash as we were travelling around NZ... More

Sokala Villas is so very nice. Our bungalow had a large plunge pool, and looked over the Muri Lagoon. The amenities were great--a kitchenette, large rooms, comfortable shower. The kayaks are always available, and it is surprising how often you will decide to paddle out once you have tried it. The access to the Lagoon is fabulous. One of the... More

Just spent a week at Sokala Villas and would agree with all the other positive reviews on this site. We had a lovely time, our villa faced straight onto the most gorgeous lagoon and Lawrence and Susan are a brilliant team. The villas are slightly quirky, but in an utterly charming way and you cannot help being utterly carried away... More

Seriously, if you are thinking about booking, Just do it! There are lot of great little places to stay on the Island, but this is hosted with warmth and great discretion. The villas are fitted out in a quirky island way. Lots of wood and slightly odd artwork. Functional and pleasant would cover it. The pool is lovely (could be... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said. Sokala Villas certainly met and exceeded our expectations. The accommodation itself was ideal for what we were looking for, comfortable with all the amenities we needed. A great barbecue which we used even on the rainy days! A fantastic welcome package of fruit, cereal and a bottle of bubbly. A very... More

I think the reviews here, both good and slightly grumbly ones, have it all covered - except the one 'poor' review - there are no apartments 'across the road'. My take is that if you have an eye and need for 5 star detailing, you may find your eye wandering to the kitchen cabinets which need varnishing..OH NO! If like... More

My husband and I loved staying at Sokala Villas. Lawrence and his staff were friendly and helpful. Lawrence was very helpful with where to go and what to see. He went out of his way to do a mercy dash from the villas to the airport with my rings that were left behind by mistake. Our villa was clean and... More
