Nestled in an organic tropical garden under the stunning vista of the Takitumu mountain range on the north-east side of Rarotonga, Ikurangi Eco Retreat feels as though it’s a world away from the bustling coastal hub. Being set back from the lagoon ensures our retreat and guests have a minimal impact on our marine environment.
Ikurangi literally means “the tail of the sky” and is the name of the mountain that watches over the village of Matavera. The dramatic mountain centre of Rarotonga is something that is often overlooked by visitors to the island, but holds its own mysterious and alluring beauty. Ikurangi Eco Retreat invites guests to Rarotonga to experience an alternative side to the island and enjoy its natural inland splendour.
Centrally located, we are 400m from the ocean reef and nearest provisions shop, 5km from the main township of Avarua and 4km in the opposite direction from world-famous Muri and the best swimming beaches in Rarotonga.
Day and night markets, shops and dining options are only a short cycle away and we offer complimentary bicycles for you to explore the island.
