Went to the cultural night here and it was excellent. Everything about this place it top notch, food was great and lots of it, show was fantastic, it was geared for the tourist and was very entertaining. Loved it. A lot attention paid to detail in the presentation of this place.

I have been to Rarotonga several times now, I have tried several different Island nights, including ones at resorts, the Highland and Te Vara Nui, although Highland does have an amaizing veiw as it is pretty much at the top of the island, I felt that Te Vara Nui was the best of them all and only reccommend Te Vara Nui when people ask me what one to do.
The food, entertainment and atmosphere is fantastic, really good value for money and you are picked up and dropped off. Whytry the best when you can do the best.

Everything about Te Vara Nui is wonderful. Staff, drinks, food, show, facilities, service, entertainment, it's all absolutely 5*. This was my second visit and I couldn't wait to take my Mum & sister to see it after I enjoyed it so much last year. It was honestly just as good second time around and I'm really looking forward to taking our children next year!

The food is the best Island Feast you'll eat - it's simply delicious and the quality is incredible considering how many people they cater for each night. Highly, highly recommended!!!

We have been to several Cook Island performances, and this would be the best. The dancers are outstanding, and the entire night is well prepared. Everyone gets a good view due to the way the show is set out (on water) and the food is great. They could probably improve on getting people in the door and seated quicker as there was a long line when our family went through.
