We stayed at Sokala Villas for a week, in the lagoon view villa with a pool and could not have asked for anywhere better! We were made to feel at home from the second we got there, with lots of homely touches around the villa. Lawrence was there to greet us when we arrived and was the most wonderful host...

We stayed for a week and had villa no4, was private and great location looking out over the lagoon. The host Lawrence was amazing, we were left to our own devises but when we needed something he was there in a flash.. Would definately stay there again.

We stayed at Sokala Villas for 7 nights in a beachfront villa with a pool. Lawrence & Susan are lovely people, who go out of their way to accommodate you. The villas are rustic, but are comfortable & having your own private pool is fantastic. You can cool off in the lagoon but it isn't the best for swimming. The...

We just spent 3 weeks in the Cook Islands and by far Sokala Villas was the nicest we stayed in. It's on the outside of Muri before you hit all the big resort hotels. It was an easy walk to where all the shops and restaurants are located. We stayed in villa #4 which had a lagoon view and its...

We have stayed in 4 different places in Rarotonga. Lawrence and Susan are the best when it comes to service, friendliness and hospitality. Sokala Villas are exactly what you need if you are looking for a relaxing sun filled holiday. We enjoyed our beachfront villa with pool so much that it almost made us weep to be leaving. Most enjoyable...

We found Sokala Villas suited us perfectly. We had Villa#4 and loved the peace & quiet. Sokala was central to restaurants. Everything was supplied to self cater, very clean and we'll go there again. If you're looking for fancy glamour go somewhere else, or if you want the genuine experience of the Cooks, go to Sokala Villas and meet the...

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...

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...
