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

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

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.
