Great experience. The hosts were lovely. We were lucky enough to be part of a small group so it felt like we had just joined a family get-together. Mānia and Ngame, along with their lovely crew, go through great lengths to make sure everyone gets an amazing experience and put on a great show, including the string band and fire show that follows the dinner you help cook. Highly recommended if you want an intimate experience, away from the larger commercial operators.

We brought our kids to see the fire show and received an evening of entertainment that far exceeded expectations. Our amazing hosts welcomed us, walked us through preparing an uma, fresh ika mata and husking coconuts before we got to enjoy the amazing meal. Great music and entertainment. The fire show was the perfect finale but don't just go for this, the whole experience is phenomenal.

Absolutely amazing time. Great to be so hands on with the preparation of the umu and the Kai - gave a real taste of a traditional Cook Islands family experience. Good mix of learning and sense of humour. Perfect way to spend an afternoon/evening - if coming to Rarotonga don’t miss it. Extra special thank you to the amazing hosts - will be recommending to anyone visiting.

This was a great activity in Rarotonga and really should not be missed. The passion of the hosts for local culture and sharing of knowledge is unbeatable. Would be a great family activity too (we went as a couple). From preparing an umu from scratch (and later eating the results, preparing and eating local Ika Mata (again from scratch starting with the whole tuna) weaving our own baskets to eat the food with, coconut husking and preparation, stories, excellent music from a local group and then to top it off with an excellent fireshow with even a 5 year old fire twirling exhibitor. It's great value, the fee includes all entertainment and activities from 3pm until about 8.00pm,, the fireshow, food and a cultural experience which is not commercialised like many are. Support local business!!! Really glad we did this and do not miss this activity while in Raro!!! Thanks to the hosts for a great night:)
