What an amazing show that captures the many traditional dances of the cook islands through the tale of a historical settlement of one of the chiefs who came to Rarotonga. This is a must see event should you visit the beautiful shores of Rarotonga it will take your breath away and you will not be disappointed. The food you share is a mixture of popular local foods as well as other cultures infamous cuisine such as sushi and fried rice. Te Vara Nui is 100% locally owned and throughout the show you are able to meet the matriarch of the family Mama Vara, an inspirational woman whom allows you to come along and share the journey of her people. I highly recommend this and would definitely return upon my next visit back to Rarotonga. :-)

This is a great show, very different to what I had seen in other shows and a very energetic performance. Excellent food as well.

This is definitely a professionally run attraction. Very good guides on the village walk and you will definitely walk away knowing everything about the culture.
We purchased our tickets from a tourist desk in the town centre and we originally only wanted to do the buffet dinner and performance due to the heavy rain but the lady convinced us to do the tour as it was covered - well this is not true, we got saturated and felt like we had been tricked. The tour was good though, but take an umbrella if you think it may rain!
The performance is very good, the dancers are great. Dinner was fantastic, a good buffet with plenty to choose from and even though there are a lot of people the food was topped up and plenty for all.
Overall, really good.

We loved this evening the grounds are lovely the music and dancing fantastic and the meal outstanding well done to Vara and the team for a very special pre wedding night out for the family the only thing I could perhaps say is that glass panels round the dining area would let parents of children relax a bit more so children could not fall in the water if parents were distracted
