Maori Hangi and Concert
The nightly Maori Concert is an event not to be missed. After two warriors perform a formal Powhiri (welcome), you will savour a superb feast – an array of genuine Hangi (traditional Maori) dishes, all cooked underground with geothermal steam. The Hangi feast is complemented by mouth-watering buffet selections of eastern and western cuisine and divine desserts including the very ‘Kiwi’ Pavlova. As you dine, be entertained by Te Roopu Manaia – the high-energy, award-winning Maori Culture group. Be thrilled by the Haka, see the skillful Poi dances, enjoy traditional and contemporary Maori songs and hear the rich tapestry of Maori legends in this 2 hour-plus event. You’ll even have the opportunity to perform Maori dances and songs with the group.
