Rarotonga - Island Nights

For a cultural, entertaining and fun night out from your luxury accommodation in Rarotonga, a visit to one of the many 'Island Nights' is a must.

Start your Island Night experience by sharing in a sumptuous feast featuring many locally grown and prepared foods. Sample taro, breadfruit, pawpaw, mango, puki and many others that you will find simply delicious. Some accommodation providers or resorts in Rarotonga will prepare food in the traditional umukai (oven in the ground).

 

A deep pit is filled with scorching hot stones. Damp sacking and shredded banana leaves are placed over the stones, creating steam. The kai (traditional food) is placed in the umu and then covered with leaves and earth. It is then left to steam for about two hours.

After dinner experience the Cook Islands' most dazzling display of music, costume and dance. The music has been handed down through the generations and guests are greeted with the fast paced tempo of drums and ukeleles.

Cook Islanders excel at dancing, singing and drumming and many are taught the traditional music, movements and rhythm before they even start school.
