Award-winning Cook Islands escape

Embrace the laidback vibes of the Cook Islands with this amazing six-night stay at the award-winning Ikurangi Eco Retreat from just $899.

Surrounded by lush forestry and mountainscapes, it’s only fitting that you start one day of your stay with a hike to the summit of a nearby mountain. Thanks to the island’s close proximity to Gisborne, the first place in the world to see the new dawn break, you’ll be amongst the first to watch the sunrise daily. 

Only 10 minutes via car or 25 minutes via bike from the pristine Muri Beach, you’ll be perfectly placed to discover the crown of flame-orange coral reef that encircles Rarotonga with complimentary snorkelling hire included in your package.

Within walking distance of the resort, you’ll find the local Love Café and village convenience stores. The retreat also offers private yoga lessons.

Ikurangi Eco Retreat is so much more than just a Cook Islands getaway, it’s a chance to immerse yourself in nature and experience total harmony knowing you’re not costing the earth.
