Whilst these bungalows are close to Muri beach, they arent on Muri beach per se. Rather, they are on the lagoon itself, with the 'beach' around 5 minutes walk away. The bungalows open out onto expansive decking, which is designed to cover up the slightly marshy area due to the tidal nature of the lagoon. So if you expect the... More

We stayed for a week earlier this year and loved it here. We were in bungalow four with great views and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Sonny was friendly, but we didn't interact as much as some, but that was fine as we were happy doing our own thing. The accomodation is fairly basic, but if you want more... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights at the Aroko Bungalows based on the high reviews on Tripadvisor. Getting to the bungalows was not a problem, as we rented a car, so we cannot speak about the airport transfer. Given the rave reviews about Sonny by others here, I'm pretty sure he never knew who we were. We would... More

An excellent location with Muri lagoon a short walk away. There are cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and an awesome cultural night all in easy walking distance. The bungalows are set among lush gardens and each bungalow is positioned for privacy from the others. The view out over the lagoon is just amazing, with kayaks for guest use you can explore the...

Me and my wife stayed at Aroko for almost a week. The bungalow was very clean and tidy, surrounded by very well maintained gardens and beautiful views. It was quiet, secure, we had lots of privacy and only 5min walk to the best beach on Rarotonga. The host Sonny was very helpful and friendly. There was a fully equipped kitchen... More

We loved out stay at Aroko Bungalows. The bungalows themselves are well laid out with breathtaking views of the lagoon. The tropical gardens are immaculately maintained. The location is unbeatable - far enough away from the tourist hub of Muri Beach to enjoy the feel of being isolated in a Pacific Island but close enough to walk down to Muri... More

Thanks Sonny! We had a great time (although the weather wasn't great) great service and very friendly. Good location as well and lovely lagoon view. You can even walk across the lagoon to the other Island in low tide. Would definitely stay again

Thank you Sonny and family not only fantastic accomodation- everything we needed in our lovely bungalow #4 but also your hospitality. All your help on where to go to swim, the home massages which you organised for the family...we were so spoilt. This is a wonderful place for those that don't want resort but can cater for themselves. Good for... More

I chose Aroko for a group family holiday to celebrate my Dads 80th birthday. Best decision EVER! Everyone was more than pleased with the choice of our accommodation. Great place and Sonny what an awesome host. He was so helpful and made sure our group of 15 were all well looked after at every stage of our stay. Everyone enjoyed... More
