Te Vara Nui Village - Overwater Night Show & Buffet Dinner
This stunning show delivers an electric authentic cultural performance like no other. Enjoy delicious traditional island night buffet fusing local island tastes from world class Umukai (traditional feast) and sample the culinary skills of local and European Chefs. With compelling legend stories set over the water portraying the past and fast hip-shaking dances with resounding beats of drums and rhythms of song and dance, this spectacular setting and performance are guaranteed to lift the hairs on the back of your neck!

Progressive Dinner through local homes tour
Leave the familiar surrounds of your resort and venture out to the villages to experience true Cook Islands cuisine, hospitality and the real spirit of culture & lifestyle when you visit the locals in their homes. Enjoy three courses with each course in a different local home. Explore the tropical garden that the host of the first course has to offer before travelling to your main course where you will be treated to a buffet feast, similar to what you’d expect at a large Cook islands family gathering. Then your dessert host will delight you with local sweets and fruit as well as tea and Atiu Island brewed coffee. Whilst enjoying your meal at each home, you’ll be delighted by the sounds of local ukuleles, guitar and voices of the small string band that will accompany you throughout your local dining experience.
