We went to the village tour and the traditional dance evening.

The village tour was very informative and interesting. Although it was raining we managed to not get wet during the tour.

The dinner buffet which was included was a mix of western and polynesian food and very tasteful. Drinks weren't included.

The show that followed was impressive as well and also very entertaining!

Defenetily worth the money!

Fanatastic show and excellent meal. On first glance it would appear to be quite expensive but for very good value for money. Absolutely smooth operation. Brilliant MC !!!!

This place is awesome, we opted to take the village tour before the cultural evening show, I must say the village tour was excellent. The Cook Island warrior challenge and welcome was great. (similar to the NZ Maori welcome) After this you learn about the people and their culture while being guide from hut to hut. Learn about the History, Medicine, Fishing, Dance and coconut husking before the main event begins.

The buffett dinner was excellent, we ate way too much because it was all so good. The show was performed and narrated briliantly, it's a very proffessional display and the musicians and drummers we're extremely talented.

Best night out on the island, book asap as you wont want to miss out.

PS They pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation, so you can have as many cocktails as you like.

It was pouring that night, but we had a lot of fun watching the show. Started off with some drinks. I had the strawberry daiquiri which was great, and other people at my table ended up getting it too after they saw my drink. Then came dinner. They called up table by table, which wasn't too bad. The food was good: salads, a spicy paw paw salad (highly recommend trying this), vegetarian pasta, lamb, chicken, fish, rice. Dessert was good as well: cakes, tiramisu, fruits. They also served a seafood chowder during the main meal time. The show itself was spectacular. I'm not a big fan of these types of things because they tend to new cheesy but I thought this was well worth the money. The dancers were great and the length of show was just right. Would recommend this to anyone staying in Rarotonga. They pick you up in this open bus which is kind of fun. Though the night I went they had to cover up the sides because it was pouring down rain.
