Te Vara Nui Cultural Village


Te Vara Nui combines a purpose-built village showcasing local culture including traditional medicine, carving, tapa making and legends, with one of Rarotonga’s most spectacular Island Nights. After-dark shows take place on pavilions and stages set above a manmade lagoon, and dinner is a sprawling umu (earth oven) buffet. A combination deal (adult/child NZ$109/59) for both the two-hour village tour and the dinner and show is also available.
