We started our trip to Rarotonga with four nights at Sokala villas. We agree with some of the previous reviews that it is time that Sokala benefitted from some internal TLC to bring it up to date when comparing it to newer villas on the island. However you get what you pay for and for us Sokala villas was good... More

We loved our stay at Sokala villas. Laurence the manager is very friendly and helpful. Lovely touches with the bottle of bubbles, fresh fruit and he very kindly put fruit juice in the fridge for me as I was pregnant so couldn't drink the bubbles. The only slight point is some of the outside of the accomodation was a bit... More

Absolutely loved our villa ( #6 ) our view was directly inline to the lagoon. Peaceful, no tv, no wi- if it was bliss even with a child in toe. The boys went from snorkeling in the lagoon to dive in the pool. A ten minute easy walk to LBV or cafe delicious for good food and the Internet. Can't... More

It has all been said before in the other reviews. And why we chose to stay here for our first visit to the Cook Islands in September 2015 and why we had a fabulous time. So just a quick summary and a few things you may need to watch out for, as follows; Why Rarotonga? Because it is a totally... More

My wife and I have just arrived back from our friends amazing wedding.. The location of Sokala Villas was perfect as the wedding was only a short stroll away. All the restaurants and bars are also just a short walk away! We had friends staying in other resorts/hotels that came and visited us and were envious of our accommodation and... More

We had ten days at Sokala Villas two weeks ago. As per other reviewers we found Lawrence and the staff - Susan, Serena, Vou and all the others exceptionally helpful and friendly. We loved our villa, the view, the space, the location and the peacefulness. The location in central Muri is very good for walking, cycling or catching the bus... More

We've just got home after 8 days staying at Sokala Villas. This was our first trip to Raro and we had an amazing time. Sokala Villas was great and everything we wanted in our accommodation - private, quiet (except for the roosters in the mornings!), nice and homely and traditional feeling rather than boring white hotel rooms. The staff are... More

We stayed here twice and in October 2015 we go back for our third stay. Amazing hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Some things about the place are a bit quirky, but that adds to the overall effect. Location- supremo, right on the lagoon at the end of a driveway, no passing traffic and only the very occasional passer-by on... More

We holiday in Rarotonga every year. This was the first year we stayed at Sokala Villas and I must say that this was the best holiday ever. Sokala Villas far exceeded all of our expectations. From the welcome note when we picked up our car at the airport, to Lawrance, the manager, being right there to warmly welcome us and... More

We recently stayed at Sokala Villas and were absolutely wowed by our experience there. The location is simply stunning with the crystal clear lagoon right in front of our Villa. The Villa that we stayed in was a beautiful 2 story oaky-like wooden (almost like a fantasy tree house) building with stone tile flooring. We had a large patio looking... More
