    Kia Orana, we are centrally located between the two busy hubs - town & Muri - and there are restaurants and cafes between. Day and night markets, shops and dining options are only a short cycle away, and a 5 min walk away is a local takeaway.

Host Info

Host Review Score 10

Award winning Ikurangi Eco Retreat is the Cook Islands first purpose-built eco accommodation and glamping hotel created to give visitors to Rarotonga the option of a getaway that doesn't compromise the environment. Set amongst organic tropical gardens and local plantations with dramatic mountain views, get back to nature and indulge in a luxurious eco escape like no other.

All guests enjoy a complimentary daily tropical breakfast delivered to your room featuring the organic fruit abundant on our property. Expect chia seed pudding with cacao nibs, bircher and island smoothie, croissants with smashed avocado - just to name a few. Also included is free bicycle hire to explore the island. Day and night markets, shops and dining options are only a short cycle away. Onsite reception and tour desk is open 7 days with friendly local advice on all the island has to offer. Centrally located in the north-east, we are 400m from the ocean reef, 5km from the main township of Avarua and 4km in the opposite direction from Muri and the best swimming beaches in Rarotonga. Being set back from the lagoon ensures our retreat and guests have a minimal impact on our marine environment.

Strategically placed to ensure each room enjoys privacy and views of our pristine environment, Ikurangi offers guests the choice of a fully furnished Luxury Safari Tent with outdoor “jungle” ensuite or a traditional Tropical Are (Polynesian style studio) with private deck. With a firm belief in responsible tourism, Ikurangi Eco Retreat ensures that sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Think luxury in an ultra-romantic tropical setting where visitors to our beautiful island can leave feeling like they’ve been a part of something that positively impacts our environment, community and economy. NB: adults only 12+.
