Should have reviewed Sokala Villas sooner. My mum and I stayed for 4 nights in September and could easily have stayed for longer. We had one of the lagoon view villas with a pool. While it wasn't categorised as 'beachfront' it was as good as. 10 steps from the lagoon, beautiful views. Very short walk to great restaurants in Muri.... More

7 free standing villas comprise this property footsteps from Muri Lagoon. They are well positioned, making one feel that they are in their own special place with no one else around. 4 have their own pool. Well-valued. Kayaks and snorkel equipment are included and a basket of fresh fruit, milk, juice, and bottle of bubbly are also provided as part... More

We wanted somewhere with privacy and seclusion, and Sokala Villas delivered perfection. From the moment we were collected from the airport we knew this holiday was going to be something special The legendary Cook Islands hospitality and friendliness came as a surprise to us jaded Europeans - but certainly didn't take us long to get used to Lawrence and his...

Having stayed at Muri a few times previously we were delighted to arrive at Sokala Villas and discover what we had been missing before. They are on the fringes of Muri, in a perfect location right on the beautiful lagoon. You are away from the hustle and bustle yet only a few minutes walk from the cafés and restaurants. Whilst...

Lawrence was certainly on of the most helpful people I've meet. True Island hospitality! Room and view amazing, great location. Only a short walk via beach or road to all the hassle and bustle of Muri beach.

A bit late in writing a review for this amazing place though I find myself thinking about Rarotonga and Sokala Villas quite frequently! Sokala was the perfect accommodation for us and when we return to Rarotonga we will definitely be staying here again. Lawrence is the man and was very helpful in planning our daily activities. If you would prefer... More

Same same same as all the positive reviews. Believe them they are true. You will not be dissappointed by Sokala Villas. Basic but idyllic. We stayed for 6 nights - wish it was more in hindsight. If we return to Rarotonga we will definitely be stayiong with Lawrence and the gang. Sooooo nice. Treat yourself. Mark and Gail

No TV, no radio, no internet - no worries! Loved our stay at Sokala Villas and enjoyed the huge deck and the plunge pool overlooking the lagoon. The local original art and prints in the villa were a nice bonus, as were the fresh fruit and breakfast essentials provided on our first day. We made full use of the kayaks,... More

We recently stayed for a week at Sokala and loved our stay. If we ever get to come back to Rarotonga, we would definitely stay again at Sokala. The villa we stayed in was two story, and did not have a plunge pool, but we didn't feel that we were missing out much since the lagoon was steps away and... More

My wife and I visited Australia, New Zealand and Rarotonga was our last stop on our way back to canada.... It was the best part of our trip and we made the best choice by staying in Sokala.
