“Experience a rare authentic performance of our ancient heritage from the era of Pre-Christian times up to today”

Ka’ara simply means drums. From the moment you arrive you will hear and feel the drums of our forefathers. This cultural extravaganza includes a village tour, marae tapu lifting, Kia Orana cocktail, traditional umu feast and the pulsating cultural show featuring the “E Matike” dance troupe.

The entire night is hosted by the descendants of the Tinomana tribe. Friday nights are great for family bookings as we feature a special number by the littlest tribe members.

Return transfers are complimentary.
