This was exactly what we needed, quiet away from the hustle and bustle but with everything you need.
Amazing cabin, incredible breakfasts, awesome pool and superb service.

Thrown in free use of bikes and snorkel and mask, what else could you ask for.

We will be back

My friend and I had a lovely stay at Ikurangi. It was a quaint and private spot that was a 20 min bike from Muri Beach. Julz and Maria were both fantastic hosts and Suzie made sure our stay was extremely comfortable. The only thing that could be improved is the bikes, since they were pretty old. However also can't really complain because it was free transport. This was a great experience and it made our holiday so much more memorable. Highly recommended for a unique experience.

I stayed here for 6 nights in March 2018 and it was just great. It is away from the main tourist areas of Rarotonga but only 5 minutes to the beach (by scooter).

Evey morning you get a delicious local breakfast, they have free bicycles and snorkling gear as well.

The Roosters need some training on time keeping but you ignore them after a while and the swimming pool was warm every day.

Maria was a great host and kept us entertained.

Room Tip: Only one tent has a bath so if you want that then request it. All others have outdoor showers, just magic.

My bf and I were over to Raro for 10 nights and decided to split our time and stay on two different sides of the island. Our first 5 nights were at Ikurangi and it was amazing. We arrived in a downpour of rain from the shuttle (which gave us real flower leis) that Luanna arranged very last minute for us (we'd forgotten to book so hurried emailed her before our flight from Auckland!) and the driver took us to our tent. Even in the rain it looked absolutely stunning, the tent was beautifully presented with flowers, towels, robes and a note welcoming us in telling us what we needed to know until we meet them in the morning.
Breakfast was delivered in the morning on the deck with a simple "good morning, your breakfast is here" and when we got up to investigate we were delighted to find a beauiful continental breakfast including juice etc and displayed with flowers. Each morning we had a diffferent consistently delicious and beautiful breakfast brought right to our deck. There were free hire bikes and snorkels and we made use of the snorkels every day! The pool was small but beautifully postitioned, surrounded by flowers and a perfect temperature.
The eco retreat was perfect for us because while we don't know a lot about sustainablity we really appreicated the little things they do to help limit the impact on their beautiful island. The composting toilets were clean and even my bf who was a little concerned about them found them fine. The outdoor bathroom was so luxurious! There was a cotton bag to help with shopping, reusable takeway coffee cup and biodegradable shampoo and body wash.
Luanna was so knowledgable, kind and friendly, helping us with decisions, ideas and tips most of which we were able to do!
Matt, who is also lovely, took the time to stop and chat and explain to us how the toilet system worked.
It was amazing, beautiful and I enjoyed every moment. Highly recommended to stay here and will hopefully be back!

Ikurangi is an amazing place to stay. Thank you to Julz and Maria for booking our activities and for your lovely hospitality. This is the place to stay if you're going to Rarotonga, would definitely stay here again! Beautiful gardens, very clean and tidy tent, nice pool, amazing breakfasts and loved the outside shower (:
