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

Spent a fantastic 11 days at Aroko in a lagoon-view bungalow. Sonny and the team were very accommodating and friendly. A peaceful location with fantastic views of the lagoon and the motus. Beautiful gardens and well maintained. A good stroll down the road to the centre of the village where you can find all your needs. Many thanks to Sonny... More

Thanks, Sonny! What a great couple of days I had at Aroko. Perfect location and gorgeous view! This isn't fancy, but you don't need fancy when you have the beautiful lagoon on your doorstep. I stayed here for a few nights by myself after my friends had left the island. A lovely way to end my trip. Yay for Raro!

We spent 2 weeks with Sonny at Aroko. We had a lagoon-view bungalow right on Muri lagoon, with a postcard view of the lagoon from one end to the other. Sonny and his staff were very accommodating and informative, and Sonny was very flexible in handling our requests. The bungalow was clean and neat, very cost-effective, and suited us well.... More

Thanks very much for having us for a lovely second stay at Aroko Bungalows. Sonny, you make everything so easy - and the surprise upgrade to a lagoon view bungalow was much appreciated. Waking up to that beautiful view each morning was fantastic. We enjoyed the short stroll to Muri beach and the use of the kayaks for leisurely trips... More

To Sonny and Aroko Crew. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Aroko Bungalows. The team was most helpful during our stay and is a fantastic location for most activities in Rarotonga. Muri Beach was a feature of our visit and provided us with many interesting attractions nearby. Sonny provided comprehensive knowledge of the area and insight into Cook Islands Culture,... More
