“Amazing resort in Raratonga”
I am a travel agent and I absolutely would recommend the Sokala Villas. Susan and Lawrence are just fantastic and their help during our stay and their kindness just made our stay! The Villas are huge and the lacation is great I culd never stay anywhere else and I will be telling all of my clients the same.
We stayed in the villa with some wonderful artwork which was great for the senses. The furnishings etc were very fine. We enjoyed the private pool and the kayaks - the fish were amazing at dusk. The location is very useful for local restaurants - we walked along the beach to some. The bus stop is just a few metres away. Our hosts were very helpful in particular in regard to making sure we were picked up from the airport at a ridiculous hour! We liked it so much that we are about to return and are so looking forward to this :)
Response from the owner Thank you Heather, wonderful. Yes we will see you soon.
“Another awesome at Holiday Sokala Villas - AaA+++”
Just a quick note to thank Lawrence & Suz for yet another unforgettable stay at Sokala Villas. This is our 3rd visit to Sokala and as per normal we left there relaxed & with great memories. From the rustic interior, comfy king size bed, massive deck with your own pool to float around in & incredible views of the lagoon and beyond, it's the perfect place to stay in Raro. Great location also as you're close to a few great local restaurants & shops (Stefano's is a must) , towns not far away, buses stop up the top of the driveway and the lagoon is your backyard. Thanks guys see you again soon hopefully ^_^
Response from the owner thank you, thank you and yes, we will see you again. :)
“Quiet and relaxing.”
Welcomed with very friendly helpful but unobtrusive service. Hosts Laurence and Susan wre able to provide advice on nearby and even iusland wide facilities and attractions. We enjoyed having the means to be able to self cater as and when we liked and the fact that there were very good restaurants in walking distance. The grounds and swimming were well maintained and very clean. Having your own pool was a welcome luxury. The location of the villas right on Muri Lagoon could not be bettered.
Response from the owner thank you very much. this is helpful
“Everything you could want and more!”
We've stayed at Sokala Villas twice in the last 2 years and we love it. We took the single level villa with its own pool, spacious deck and wide bbq. We love to buy some fresh fish and bbq it ourselves but there are also some excellent eateries close by. The little italian for instance is a treat. A few steps to Muri lagoon and you have to best of all worlds. Lawence, Susan and Sarina are delightful and evr helpful. We come come to regard them as family.
Response from the owner Hey Russell & Gilly Thank you very much. Yes, we can smell all the guests bbq's and know what you are going to have. hahaha... Thank you
“Relaxing, pure, unadulterated, relaxation.”
My wife & I just returned from our third stay at Sokala Villas, and as usual it was an absolute perfect vacation. The staff, Lawrance, Susan, Sarina, Ariki, Pi, Terii & Vou took exceptional care of us, much above and beyond what one normally would expect. It was wonderful to see Kalamoana and Betty again also. On a very sad note, we all lost alistair, Lawrance's right-hand man, we'll miss him. Sokala is all about relaxing and just enjoying the pure nature of Muri beach. Villa four, at the edge of the resort was quiet and peaceful. The lagoon teemed with life and we both loved not having a TV. The stars at night were amazing! (Ask Lawrance about the satelite!)This area of Muri beach is very secluded and most days there's no one else but you, the dogs who adopt you, and the chickens. There's lots of eating places nearby. There's a little take-away about ten minutes walk, "La Palmiers" at Te Vara Nui Cultural Village has an execptional cafe with Jimmy taking very good care of the place, "you just gotta try the crepes!" Take in the evening show, if you get the chance, it`s a great way to enjoy the Cook Islands culture. There's "The Mooring" a ten minute walk in the opposite direction with great lunches, my fav was the BLT. The most notable thing about Sokala is that most of the clientele are returning guests. This emphazises the true "homey" feel of the place. The best way to describe our overall experience is to just say that "we were at home." Can't wait 'til next year!
Response from the owner Thank you very much. We love having both of you here and catching up as well. The crepes is to die for. I loved the chicken one, so yummy... You were lucky to see the satellite come down. Wow... :) We'll miss you until next time. See you soon
“A little slice of paradise”
My Wife & I have stayed there 6 times in the past 3 years which must tell you just how much we love it. Great staff where nothing is a problem. We treat the staff as family & they treat us the same. It is such a nice & quiet place to relax & enjoy a holiday, the way it should be.
Response from the owner Thank you. This is great
“Sokala Villas are paradise!!”
I'm going back to Sokala in april which will be my 7th stay there in the last 3 1/2 years! It is home away from home. It is beautiful, with your own private pool and bbq on your deck it is bliss. Lawrence, Susan and Sarina are like family. It is right on a private stretch of beach at Muri Lagoon...perfect for a stroll or a dip! I love to travel but once I discovered Sokala and the Cook Islands I couldn't imagine going anywhere else! Kia Orana!
Response from the owner Hey Jeri Fantastic! Thanks very much. We are looking forward to seeing both of you back as well... It won't long, you will be here. See you soon :)
