Great location, fantastic accommodation and friendly staff! An amazing place to stay! Highly recommend to everyone to stay here when in Muri :-) close to local bus, car/ bike hire and restaurants, why stay anywhere else! With pacific divers across the road for scuba diving :-)

We've been to Raro every year for the past three years, Sokala is one of my favourites so far! Lawrance and Susan were GREAT hosts, honestly this place had everything we wanted! My partner would have liked more lighting in the bedroom for reading. Loved watching the crabs run around, feeding the eels, swimming in our own pool, has great... More

My family and I had four villas for six days. Loved them. My villa was located right on the beach with the most sensational view! My sister had a villa with a pool and my daughters' garden view villas still had views of the lagoon and one villa in particular was so big two couples could easily share. The staff... More

I stayed in the beautiful Sokala Villas in April 2015 for four nights. My villa with its own pool had a stunning view overlooking the Muri Lagoon. I arrived late at night on the Virgin Australia flight from Auckland, and was transferred from the airport by Henry, from Island Concierge who chatted pleasantly as we drove the short distance to...

我们在Sokala住了五个晚上,房间很大干净,设施很完善,环境非常安静,地点也很方便,走出去大路左拐就有很多饭店,我们每天都去海边游泳,然后又回来私人泳池玩,Lawrance和员工非常热情,给了我们很多帮助和建议。期待下次再来! Best villa ever ! You can do anything you like , the owner will supply you free boats and free snorkeling stuffs . The service is pretty good here , they will get your private pool clean every two days (unless you did not book a pool......) . The owner , Mr Lawrance is very friendly , also his... More

Just returned from 4 nights and a half! At sokala. We had a beach front villa with pool. Amazing location and pool wonderful. Very private and comfortable. The manager Lawrence was lovely and so accommodating. We flew back to NZ on the awful midnight flight and had a late check out until we had to leave which was great. Lots... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't be happier. It was an island paradise, and was an amazing way to start out our honeymoon. Laurence, the owner, met us when our car dropped us off from the airport early in the morning. He is very friendly and helpful, and made us feel right at home. He's handy too -... More

We stayed here for 6 days and it was one of our favourite holidays. If I were going back I would definitely be returning to Sokala. The owner/manager Laurence is wonderfully hospitable and always around to help or give a tip as to where to eat or what to check out locally. Our pool villa (non beach front) was large,... More

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
