Peace

Pros: Privacy
Cons: A kitchenette at least as no where to prepare food
Location: Half way between town and Muri beach, lots to do at Muri
Very peaceful get away for 2 other than the roosters crowing at 4am every morning, if you like the secluded this is the place, if you like interaction with others you will be disappointed. Not sign posted so hard to find definitely get a taxi or transfer from the airport otherwise you might find yourself very lost!!

Kia Orana, Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at Ikurangi and for taking time to do a review. We hope you enjoyed the complimentary daily breakfasts, tea and coffee provided to you. We do understand that you may have wanted to cater for yourself being longer stay guests however, as part of our commitment to supporting our local community we encourage our guests to enjoy all the culinary delights our island has to offer. A fridge is in all rooms so some snacks/cold food may be stored easily by guests. We take note of your concern regarding the signage. Whilst we do have a sign at our entrance, in order to retain guests privacy we have opted against signs on the main road at this stage. As we collect more feedback from guests we may review this decision so we thank you for the feedback. We do strongly recommend all guests take advantage of our transfer service to ensure your arrival is as stress-free as possible as we can be tricky to find first time round. Once again, we thank you for supporting our vision for a more sustainable, authentic Cook Islands holiday. We look forward to seeing you back here in paradise soon! Kia Manuia, Luana and Matt (owners)

Loved it!! Would recommend Ikurangi Eco retreat to anyone. Beautiful spot away from the more touristy areas. You'll need some sort of transport though, the 5 mile bike ride (provided) into Muri is pleasant but to see the rest of the island is a must too!

Nice quiet place

Tents were nice however the king size bed was to single mattresses and it was hard, the wind blows the pilot lite out for hot water..so u end up standing in the cold waiting for hot water. Had no milk for 2 days in fridge. And couple of breakfasts we had like a couple slices of bread was not nice at all.

Kia Orana and thank you for choosing to stay at Ikurangi. We're disappointed to hear your stay was not up to your satisfaction and take your feedback seriously. We encourage all our guests to let us know if things don't seem right during their stay so we can fix them (eg topping up your milk or seeing to your hot water). If we do find out after you leave it means we can't assist in making your stay more pleasurable. We pride ourselves on providing a luxury hotel experience through our well thought out amenities (eg complimentary breakfast, hotel standard beds which you'll find in most Pacific Island hotels, free wifi, free bicycles and lovely ecostore toiletries for you to enjoy). We do hope you'll come back to visit us in paradise one day. Kia Manuia, Luana & Matt, owners.

Great retreat, peaceful and clean.

Tents super clean. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was simple but delicious. Not many other guests which meant we had the pool to ourselves. Bikes available to explore the island on. Outside shower under the stars was a winner :)

Inland Paradise

Ikurangi Eco Retreat was everything my wife and I expected and more. Matt and Luana have created something special with this place that offers travellers with a genuine alternative to the typical beachside resort. Their warm hospitality and personal touch will not be forgotten and we will definitely be making a return visit in the future.
