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

Just arrived back from 5 nights at Sokala Villas and everything was perfect. We choose a lagoon view villa (2 level) with a pool which had a large deck that looked out over the palm trees to the lagoon and out to the sandy beach on the island opposite the villas. The villas were very well appointed with a loft... More

We just got back from a week on Rarotonga and had a wonderful time. We loved the island and we were so happy that we chose to stay at Sokala Villas. It was the perfect place to stay. It was right on Muri Bay with great views of the bay and easy kayaking to nearby motu's. Easy walking distance to... More

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
