Kia Orana and a warm welcome to Ikurangi Eco Retreat – the Cook Islands first purpose-built eco accommodation and glamping hotel. NB: adults only 12+.
Ikurangi Eco Retreat is an intimate boutique resort that emanates serenity and sophisticated relaxation - think luxury in an ultra-romantic tropical setting. 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. Our four Safari Tents and three Are have been strategically placed to ensure each room enjoys privacy, overlooking our beautiful tropical gardens with mountain views. For something really special, book our Ariki Safari Tent and delight in a private claw foot bath under the South Pacific stars and complimentary bubbles on arrival.
All accommodation is equipped with a super-king bed, or twin singles upon request (except Ariki), fully screened windows and doors, filtered drinking water and a yoga mat for each guest. Each room has a pedestal fan, bar fridge, free tea and local artisan coffee facilities, hairdryer and safe for your valuables. Our Luxury Safari Tents feature an ensuite with modern composting toilet and private open-air hot water shower. We’re proud to be 2021/22 Mana Tiaki Eco Certified and provide eco-luxe toiletries with no single use plastics.

Pre-COVID-19 our dream was to create a special space for guests, whether individuals, couples or groups: a quiet place for meditation or any other practice you may enjoy. To that end we’ve constructed a custom-built undercover studio. Be it yoga, dining together or playing board games on those wet weather days, we are very happy with the relaxing karma this new common area generates.
Eating and drinking
There’s no need to rush down to an on-site restaurant before a set time at Ikurangi Eco Retreat, as every morning you’re treated to a fresh tropical breakfast “in bed” delivered to your room. Different every day, expect chia seed pudding with cacao nibs, bircher and island smoothie, croissants with smashed avocado and juice, fresh organic fruit salad and homemade yogurt, paw paw muffin with preserves & fruity iced tea - just to name a few. Locally roasted coffee and tea facilities, as well as filtered water, are available in your room at all times.
Rarotonga offers an impressive range of cafés and restaurants and we’ll happily share some of our favourites with you. Ikurangi actively encourages guests to support the local industry by exploring the Polynesian food scene.
For a night in, we recommend our sumptuous grazing platters prepared and delivered by our private chef featuring a selection of local delicacies. Vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian and gluten free options available.
