Rarotonga has something to offer even the most discerning of travellers. From exciting mountain treks and adrenaline racing water sports, to boutique shopping and an emerging local coffee culture- we are certain you’ll fall in love with our island too.
Rarotonga is blessed with stunning natural beauty from our dramatic peaks to our pristine lagoon. Our unique eco-system is made up of indigenous lizards, birds and fish and the occasional visiting humpback whale. Book a dive and see the wonders of a South Pacific coral reef, or take a mountain trek with Pa, the island’s go to guy on all things mountainous.
Ikurangi offers our guests complimentary bicycles to explore the island at their own pace as well as free snorkelling equipment. We are a 15 minute cycle from Muri lagoon. We can arrange transfers to and from the beach for your convenience.
If there’s something we Cook Islanders pride ourselves on, it’s food. Start your culinary journey with a tropical breakfast delivered to your room, featuring a selection of locally sourced, organic fruit, cereal and artisan bread. Tea and coffee facilities are available in your room at all times.
Our local coffee culture is growing rapidly and you’ll find a quality brew at most cafes around the island. Roasted right here in Rarotonga, you’re sure to enjoy an ethical caffine fix.
Like our Antipodean neighbours, craft beer is becoming increasingly popular. Local brewery Matutu has joined the scene with a variety of guest and special brews throughout the year.
Restaurants and Cafes are abundant and mostly offer great value for money. See our Rarotonga page for our favourites.
Must-dos include the Saturday Punanga Nui Markets, Ura (Cook Islands dancing) lessons on Muri Beach and Highland Paradise Cultural Centre, an ancient mountain top village where you can learn about our history through song, dance and food.
No holiday is complete without some pampering. Enjoy a couples massage in the privacy of your tent or room, or a private yoga lesson in our gardens or on your deck. Many spas around the island also offer facials, pedicures, manicures and more.
