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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I honestly think Sokala Villas is in the best spot in Muri, out of the wind and with shelter form the island in front. We had our family of 6, with four teenagers/young adults and mum and dad, and we had three rooms between us. Susan was so delightful with all her emails, and nothing was too much trouble to...

We've been to Raro every year for the past three years, Sokala is one of my favourites so far! Lawrance and Susan were GREAT hosts, honestly this place had everything we wanted! My partner would have liked more lighting in the bedroom for reading. Loved watching the crabs run around, feeding the eels, swimming in our own pool, has great...

My family and I had four villas for six days. Loved them. My villa was located right on the beach with the most sensational view! My sister had a villa with a pool and my daughters' garden view villas still had views of the lagoon and one villa in particular was so big two couples could easily share. The staff...

I stayed in the beautiful Sokala Villas in April 2015 for four nights. My villa with its own pool had a stunning view overlooking the Muri Lagoon. I arrived late at night on the Virgin Australia flight from Auckland, and was transferred from the airport by Henry, from Island Concierge who chatted pleasantly as we drove the short distance to...
