The intimate garden wedding of Mark and Clare made March so very special. Held in the beautiful Ikurangi Eco Retreat garden, the couple chose to have a simple, deeply meaningful marriage ceremony witnessed by their dearest friends Megan and Andrew. A real honour to have been part of this day and to be able to announce "Mr and Mrs Wells". Kia Manuia. Go in Peace, live in joy.

"May your joys be as bright as the morning, and you sorrows just mere shadows that fade in the sunlight of your love."

Letโ€™s give a big round of applause to our group of talented local youth on the Environmental Photography Exhibition ๐Ÿ‘ Showcasing 27 canvas prints from the Environmental Photography Workshop from youth in Atiu and Rarotonga!

We are very proud of the images that they captured of their surrounding environment with images capturing the beauty of our islands and areas that are in need of our attention.

Meitaki to CITC Liquor & Lawson's Dry Hills Wines for your support! Lawsonโ€™s incorporates a number of eco-friendly measures such as recyclable and biodegradable packaging, generating solar power and storing water off the winery roof.

And special thanks to LBV Le Bon Vivant Muri Beach for once again hosting this event and providing us with delectable treats!

Meitaki Maโ€™ata to US Embassy New Zealand for making this fantastic project possible๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ This is close to the wrap up of a project that has extended across most of the southern group island schools over the past year and has been such an engaging way to reach & inspire youth in caring for their environment.

And to all others involved including Tabby Berg for teaching our youth valuable camera skills, Magic Reef Bungalows Heays family of Sands Villas Rarotonga and Ikurangi Eco Retreat

The Cook Islands were among the winners of our 2020 Emerging Destination Awards as a top place to travel in 2020. And while travel hasn't been in the cards for much of the world this year, one bit of happy news is that the Cook Islands have avoided getting hit by the virus!

Now they are hoping to join the Trans-Tasman travel bubble which, if it happens, could put the Cook Islands back on the travel map for Kiwis and Aussies.

Travel Lemming recently published a guide to the best resorts in the Cook Islands, written by one of our freelance writers who visits the CI frequently. If you're in Australia or New Zealand and considering travel within the bubble, check it out!

Kia Orana and a very warm welcome to award winning Ikurangi Eco Retreat, the Cook Islands first purpose-built eco accommodation and glamping hotel created to give visitors to Rarotonga the option of a getaway that doesnโ€™t compromise the environment.
