About Ikurangi Eco Retreat

This boutique eco-resort offers travellers responsible luxury holidays with studio-style rooms and tents. Travellers can choose from Tropical Ares, Luxury Safari Tents and the Ariki Safari Tent. Both the types of accommodation options features comfy super king-size beds, pedestal fans, screen windows, bar fridge, room safe, hair dryer and an iron with an ironing board. The ensuite bathroom features a hot water shower, bathrobes and eco-friendly toiletries. Outside, the ares and the tents have an over-sized patio where guests can enjoy breezy evenings with a glass of wine. Plus, the accommodations and the resort’s lush organic gardens are set with the Takitumu mountains in the back-drop; it’s easy to understand why people say, ‘escape into nature’.

As the theme of responsible eco-sensitivity goes, the meals are all organic and the resort’s restaurant caters to a wide variety of diets. It prides itself on its farm-to-table diligence and yet, the meals are an amazing blend of international cuisines and local flavours. Besides breakfast, the Ikurangi Eco Retreat serves up great grazing platters when you’re not feeling like stepping out for meals.

And speaking of stepping out, there’s simply so much to see, do, eat and experience in Rarotonga and Cook Islands. Any water-related activity – be it swimming, snorkelling, scuba-diving, jet-skiing, fishing and so on – is simply flawless. You can ask the help desk at the resort to suggest tour operators for the above activities. Then, on land, travellers can take walking tours of Rarotonga. There’s but the one main road and no stop lights, so driving around is child’s play. We recommend a village visit, a tour of Rarotonga’s market and a jungle expedition on a 4×4 – all of them are just smashing. For cultural shindigs, do try an evening at the Te Vara Nui village – the song and dance routines are pure magic. We’ve written a blog on everything you’d want to know about the Te Vara Nui Village, so feel free to have a read!
