We absolutely loved our stay at Ikurangi. My words probably won’t do justice to the beautiful experience we had staying here. Luana and her team made absolutely sure that we had the best of our time, by providing the personalised tour of the island and time on time recommending thing to do, coffee places to try, and every little sneaky details about everything, that only a local person can provide. We were treated with the beautiful healthy breakfasts everyday with NU (fresh coconut water, where on earth would you get that!), it was a real treat, especially for folk like us who have stayed a lot in hotels and resorts where you get some bog-standard buffet spread. The place was tranquil, the beauty of the mountains, the chooks running in the precinct, waking up to that view was a dream, that I still dream. The room was clean and comfy. We spent lot of time just watching the mountain and enjoying the peace and quiet nature from our room, in the morning and at dawn. Providing peddle bike to ride on, made our stay more fun as it gave us wheels we could ride on. It was a personalised experience like no other and I can't recommend it highly enough.

We loved our stay. Luana and the team went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. We stayed in the ‘are’ which are very clean and comfortable. The bikes are a great way to get around, only 15-20 min ride to the gorgeous Muri beach at a very leisurely pace! The breakfasts were delicious too. We absolutely loved the Ikurangi ethos. Sustainable tourism is going to be vital to ensure the gorgeous island stays that way.

We had a lovely 3-day stay at Ikurangi eco resort recently - a beautiful little spot nestled away in the jungle but just off the main road. Customer service was amazing and the resort had clearly thought of all the little things one would need. Very private, lovely pool for a dip and free bikes, with delicious breakfast delivered to your tent daily. Thanks for a lovely time!

We spent an idyllic 6 days in this beautiful paradise retreat. After a period of hard work my wife and I were looking for somewhere to regain ourselves ... and this was definitely the place! It is well away from the bustle of the resorts, and set in its own beautiful gardens, with views of Rarotonga's stunning peaks. With only a few cabins and tents, there is lots of privacy and peace. You drift off at night with the sound of the surf in your ears, and awake every morning to clucking of hens and the song of the roosters. The lovely breakfast is prepared with fruit from the garden. Then you can hop on the bicycles for a leisurely ride to a restaurant for lunch, or a swim at a nearby beach. Our congratulations to Luana and Matt, with Ikurangi they have created something extraordinary with this retreat. Their warm hospitality and ecologically sound ethos has infused through every part of this lovely place. We cannot recommend this enough to fellow weary travellers looking for the perfect place to recuperate.

Had a lovely relaxing time. Really well maintained and friendly efficient staff. My husband said it was the best place ever and we have been to Rarotonga 4 times. I would highly recommend staying at Ikurangi.
