We stayed at Sokala Villas for 3 night in August and had a wonderful time. The villas are roomy and welcoming. Very nice touches with the fruit, flowers and wine. There were plentiful towels and the villas were very clean and tidy. Lawrence was very helpful - nothing was a problem for him. Thank you Sokala!

The location of Sokala is ideal, very close to all the action, but very quiet. The staff are all very helpful and thoughtful. We loved it here and would love to stay again. We had a great villa with lovely views and very sunny and sheltered. Thank you to Lawrence for all his help.

So glad that I was able to spend 4 nights in this beautiful hideaway. Outstanding and discreet service, in this 2 storey timber villa with direct access to Muri lagoon and a short walk to the village restaurants and bars. Wonderful host Lawrence ensured we had chilled champagne and fresh fruit on arrival. Fabulous layout ensured complete privacy. We will... More

We spent 5 nights at Sokala and it was everything we hoped for and some. Beach front villas means just that, the water virtually came up to our deck. The cabins are rustic but clean and homely and good size. Room had a kitchen with a stove but we only used the kettle. Why would you cook when the Muri... More

We arrived very late at night but our host was keen to make sure everything was just right for us. We had a great villa with it's own pool and right on the lagoon. The facilities were excellent. We did have trouble sleeping in due to the sun coming thru the thin curtains but when mentioned to the owner he... More

We discovered Sokala in early 2015, based on a photo that was taken from Villa 1 with the amazing view of the calm waters of the lagoon & it's nearby Motus. We stayed there for a month and when it was time to go home, we realized that we had to return. My husband and I have travelled the globe... More

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
