“The Best There Is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Having stayed at them all over the past several years, have no reservations in recommending the Rarasu as currently the best place to stay in Auki. The staff are helpful and the restaurant serves good food.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Rarasu Motel has been built recently near the new market, and not far from the main wharf. It has self-contained rooms on two levels, with a decent hot shower and even a kettle to boil water.
Staff are friendly and helpful, though not always easy to get on the phone from Honiara. (I ended up getting a friend to contact a local colleague in Auki, who went there to make our booking.)
Rooms have a balcony with comfortable furniture. We had two rooms, one with two beds, the other with one double and a lounge.
However, don't rely on the restaurant next door. We had a good meal the first night, but they weren't open the second, and told us we needed to book. We booked for the third night (Sunday) for 6.30pm. The owner had actually got home 10 minutes earlier, and refused to come back! (Note, this restaurant is not owned by the motel.)
The Motel management actually arranged for us to eat at the Auki Motel, and drove us there and back.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms on the south side overlook a pleasant river.
