Mitai Maori Village Experience in Rotorua

Experience Maori traditions at a Mitai Maori Village dinner show, a great introduction to an ancient culture.

With a mix of song, dance, cuisine, and games, this evening at Mitai Maori Village is an invitation to discover firsthand the Maori culture of New Zealand.

This provided a wonderful combination of Maori History and Culture. You get to see the hangi being raised and explained then an easy gentle walk through the bush with an explanation of and example of some Maori history and then back inside for a Hangi and show. Being run by a family who are passionate about who they are and what they are doing was amazing to experience. The Hangi was one of the best I have had ( I have had a few over the years) and I definitely recommend visiting if you have the opportunity.

Excellent !! Enjoyed every minute ! Chose Mitai as read reviews and they still do the hangi traditional way. Fantastic, due to covid no bus trip ( lack of tourists I guess) BUT we loved how they went from Polynesian to Maori and we got to experience both!! The food great , hospitality wonderful , loved everything and the holy spring water fountain blessed to see.. small group again due to covid but awesome and felt special!! Best way honestly as as a kiwi we blessed to live In a covid free country atm. Personally I think it’s best to travel with these hard times and support Maori and NZ places... thank you for your hospitality and to you Kylie ( just a little darker as you said 😂 ) . Kia Kaha

We were so warmly welcomed and enjoyed the delicious hangi meal followed by the hula to Hakka concert. A highlight was the walk through the bush to the MItai VIllage and the sacred spring. The whole evening was a real learning experience for our teenage grandson. MItai is doing an amazing job in these extraordinary times when we do not have international tourists. All New Zealanders should have a MItai Maori VIllage experience.

Well presented evening with a delicious meal. Kept everyone engaged. Learned more about our culture and its origins. The bush walk to Fairy Springs was beautiful and informative too. Clean, hygienic presentation of food. Would definitely take visiting friends again.
