Best Hangi and Concert in Rotorua?

We are planning a trip to Rotorua at the end of March this year. It will me my husband and I along with our 2 boys (6yrs & 8 yrs). We would really enjoy the traditional hangi. Some have recommended the Tamaki Maori Village. I would like any other suggestions that are out there.

Thanks!

Try Matai which is held in the grounds of Fairy Springs, it has had rave reviews and is giving Tamaki a run for their money, you can also go on a Kiwi Encounter.

Went to Matai hangi last week found the overall experience very good. The food was excellent and plentyful.

The show was very entertaining and performed with passion by the people.

It is definitely not over commercialised and we thoroughly enjoyed the night.

A must do! experience in Rotorua.

Thanks Mike that's great, haven't had any recent reports so pleased to hear it's still doing well and that you enjoyed yourself. Visitors are heading there tomorrow night so I can rest easy.

Zappers, If you have a second after your visitors leave would you mind filling me in on their impression of Matai hangi? We have reservations there the first of April.

Thanks!

Sure thing but I probably won't hear from them until they've finished their 2week holiday in NZ(end of March). And I think I'll be away myself when they touch base but if they are in touch sooner I'll certainly let you know.

Both Mitai & Tamaki will pick up from most Rotorua accommodation. With the added one hour ( approx) night tour of Rainbow Springs and the Kiwi house as well as glow worms and the arrival by waka of the Maori warriors, the Mitai experience has some added extras.

Just curious which tour MovingMike took....the website seems to offer the option of a Village Visit or Beauty by Night.
