4/5 Good

Location was peaceful and secluded. Pristine garden surroundings and beautifully maintained accommodation. Bikes available to use during the stay but a scooter or car would be an advantage as is not close to any cafes or restaurants.

Wonderful retreat

We had an amazing stay at Ikurangi Eco Retreat. Luana helped arrange airport transfers as we arrived late. Each morning we were delivered a healthy, delicious, beautifully presented breakfast. And they catered excellently for my boyfriend who is vegan. Both Luana and Haley were very helpful in helping arrange activities and giving local recommendations. The room (we stayed in an Are) was clean, comfortable and had beautiful views over the inland mountains. We loved the sound of the roosters, and you can hear them all over the island,but be aware if a light sleeper. We were greatful to have the bikes for transport but we’re too tempted and hired a scooter which was great fun. No free WiFi but can easily be arranged from retreat. Overall we had a wonderful stay. It was so relaxing to get away from the business of our day to day lives. It was also wonderful to stay somewhere conscious of reducing their impact on their island home. Would highly recommend to anyone looking at going to Rarotonga.
