THE ENVIRONMENT

From the Owners:

“The importance placed on minimising the retreat’s effect on the environment was the inspiration behind using luxury safari tents (or glamping tents as they are affectionately known). The use of shallow foundations for the decking, composting toilets, sustainably sourced materials, natural and biodegradable toiletries and cleaning products and free bicycles was key to developing an eco-friendly accommodation site. Just as importantly, it was imperative that the comfort and luxury expected by guests was not compromised.”

What we love… 

Ikurangi Eco Retreat is the first purpose-built eco accommodation in the Cook Islands. The dream of husband and wife, Matt and Luana Scowcroft, Ikurangi was created to give visitors to Rarotonga the option of a holiday that doesn’t compromise the environment. 


 

Tell me more… 

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 beauty.

Rarotonga’s own eco retreat offers combines luxury with sustainability. Nestled in a tropical garden under the stunning vista of Mount Ikurangi on the east side of Rarotonga, Ikurangi offers guests the choice of a Tropical Are (Polynesian style studio room) with private deck facing the mountains, or a stunning fully furnished luxury Safari Tent equipped with private en suite.

Complimentary use of bicycles and guest masks and snorkels. 

Daily tropical breakfast is served to each room, which includes a selection of artisan breads, fresh seasonal fruit, cereal and yogurt. The hosts are self proclaimed coffee snobs so your coffee will always be fully stocked, fresh and fair trade, locally roasted on our island.
