The Cultural Village Tour consists of eight huts with the local Maori people sharing their stories, knowledge and heritage. Visitors learn about traditional medicine preparation, ancestral fishing, navigation techniques, legends and beliefs and local artisans and craftspeople will demonstrate carving, weaving, preparing local dance costumes and cook traditional foods. 

The "Ura-Po" Over Water Cultural Experience is set amongst luscious gardens and peaceful water features whilst Rarotonga's finest dancers and musicians perform by flaming torchlight on the floating and fixed stages of the waterfall garden. Visitors also enjoy the delicious traditional island night umu buffet, featuring local Island tastes from the world class Umukai (traditional feast) and experience the culinary skills of the local and international chefs.
