We've begun the countdown until our next 4 week vacation in paradise. This will be our 5th trip to Rarotonga and our 4th stay at Sokala. There are many reasons we've chosen to return to Sokala repeatedly. The location of this lovely property is perfect for us. It is on a beautiful stretch of beach with a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and shops within easy walking distance. Every time we return, we are welcomed warmly by the wonderful friends we've made who look after everything at Sokala. The villas are spacious, comfortable, just steps from the ocean and they offer a great deal of privacy. Lawrance, the owner, is on site 24/7. He is always willing to provide any assistance, fulfill special requests, and this also results in a very secure and safe environment.
Some reviewers have complained about the lack of swimming in front of Sokala. The water depth depends entirely on the tide which changes daily. This also affects whether or not you can walk on the beach to the restaurants at night. We always walk along the beach at night and just accept that sometimes our feet will get wet. The fact that Sokala is on a tropical island does cause things to weather and deteriorate more quickly. The owner is aware of this fact and is constantly trying to maintain and upgrade the facilities. People who travel to even the most luxurious 5 star properties more than once will have experienced this.
Overall, this is a beautiful, romantic, private and safe place to stay while vacationing in paradise.
