  • Yala was great for our family of 6 (4kids)

    Yala was great for our family of 6 (4kids). So handy to everything. Our kids loved exploring the rocky beach for crabs and other sea life most evenings. We will definitely be back!

    We absolutely loved our stay at "Yala Villa". Not only was the house closely located to everything, it was spacious, clean and equipped with everything we needed ... and so much more. We would do it all in a heartbeat and not hesitate to recommend to all who plan on going to this paradise island of Rarotongq. Thanks
