Thanks, Sonny! What a great couple of days I had at Aroko. Perfect location and gorgeous view! This isn't fancy, but you don't need fancy when you have the beautiful lagoon on your doorstep. I stayed here for a few nights by myself after my friends had left the island. A lovely way to end my trip. Yay for Raro!

We spent 2 weeks with Sonny at Aroko. We had a lagoon-view bungalow right on Muri lagoon, with a postcard view of the lagoon from one end to the other. Sonny and his staff were very accommodating and informative, and Sonny was very flexible in handling our requests. The bungalow was clean and neat, very cost-effective, and suited us well.... More

Thanks very much for having us for a lovely second stay at Aroko Bungalows. Sonny, you make everything so easy - and the surprise upgrade to a lagoon view bungalow was much appreciated. Waking up to that beautiful view each morning was fantastic. We enjoyed the short stroll to Muri beach and the use of the kayaks for leisurely trips... More

To Sonny and Aroko Crew. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Aroko Bungalows. The team was most helpful during our stay and is a fantastic location for most activities in Rarotonga. Muri Beach was a feature of our visit and provided us with many interesting attractions nearby. Sonny provided comprehensive knowledge of the area and insight into Cook Islands Culture,... More

We had booked at another nearby place but the place was too far from Muri and there was too much late night noise and traffic where our room was located. We kept on driving by Aroko and thought "why didn't we know about this place?" and decided to drop and see if they had availability. Sonny greeted us and said... More

This place is in the best spot in Raro. Gorgeous views of offshore motus, quiet, relaxing and comfortable. Now if only Sonny could control the rain...he manages the rest so well! Make sure you walk down to the Muri Night Market for dinners. Awesome plates of gourmet food for the cheapest price on island. We walked down to the beach... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Aroko. Our unit had every facility we needed. Our bed was comfortable, and kitchen and bathroom facilities well maintained.

We were in Rarotonga for a wedding, and rocked up here after our previous booked accommodation was a let down. The owner set to work & had our room ready in an hour, and could not do enough for us.
