Rarotonga - Island Nights

A very special highlight and ‘must do’ during your stay in the Cook Islands will be to experience an Island night blending together a traditional Cook Island feast with traditional Cook Island dancing.

Start your Island Night experience by sharing in a mouth-watering feast featuring many locally grown and prepared foods. Sample taro, breadfruit, pawpaw, banana mango poke and many others that you will find simply delicious.

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, swaying hips 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.
