Beautiful Jungle Hideaway

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Nov 2023via mobile
An amazing place to stay, in a great location. Easy to get around on the bus or by the free bikes. Vicki and Alan were the best hosts, they helped me with my lost luggage and with tours in Aitutaki. They were so warm and friendly and made me feel like this was a home from home (I was here solo). The gourmet breakfasts were an experience in themselves. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this place to stay!

My Partner and I wonderful stay at Ikurangi Eco Retreat. The place was impeccably clean and the outdoor showers added a lovely touch to the experience.

The hosts were incredibly helpful, assisting with organizing trips and even arranging a thoughtful birthday surprise.

The breakfasts were different every day and offered a nice healthy start to the day!

The location is not beachfront, but the beach is not that far. The location makes you feel like you are tucked away in the hills and isolated, when in fact you are only a couple of minutes walk away from the bus stop and a couple of minutes drive away from the local town.

A great alternative to the resorts that the island offers.

Vicki and Alan were excellent hosts and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The Tropical Are we stayed in was very quiet and private. It was spacious and adequately equipped. The deck was very private and lovely to sit out on. The breakfasts were delicious. The grounds were attractive and well maintained. The bicycles were a bonus and we made good use of them. The pool looked lovely but we didn't use it because the weather wasn't hot enough.

We loved our experience here. It was quiet, Alan and Vicki were kind, flexible, and gracious. Lovely place to stay. Breakfast was always delicious. We absolutely would stay here again if we came to the Cook Islands.

If you enjoy a good mountain view, lush greenery, and fresh air, this is the spot for you. We stayed in one of the safari tents and had no problem either cooling down or warming up the inside for our comfort. Breakfast was delivered each morning by one of the owners (former chef), and was so so good every morning! They make every effort possible to provide an eco-conscious experience for guests, from environment-friendly soaps, reusable containers, food scrap collection for composting, to a composting toilet. The bus can be caught just a short 5 min walk down the road, and a great burger joint is a 20 min walk (we went there twice!) We really enjoyed our stay at Ikurangi thanks to the owners, Vicki and Alan, as well as the resident animals Molly and Possum!

Room tip: The bus makes the whole island accessible, but know that hours are quite limited on Sundays so plan ahead for food and transport that day
