Enjoy an evening of performances, dance, and a 4-course meal based on seasonal cuisine that is served under an al fresco (outdoor area). Indulge in Maori songs and traditions aligned to and changing with the Maramataka (Maori lunar calendar). Watch a cultural performance and learn local indigenous customs. Be immersed in towering Tawa trees, blazing bonfires, and a forest-formed amphitheater. Start your dinner off with forest canapes that culminate in a lavish 3-course fusion feast designed by award-winning Maori chefs, and prepared in-house.

Your experience begins with pick-up from your Rotorua accommodation and a scenic drive to the Hobbiton movie set. See Bilbo and Frodo's home and wander around the vegetable patches. Learn about movie secrets, local anecdotes and the mind-boggling attention to detail. Walk past the Mill and the famous Party Tree specially created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films.

It was such an awesome experience, loved the performances, the welcoming at the beginning was so good! The team had such beautiful voices. I tell you, there's only about 10-12 in the group but when you hear them singing....sound like a whole choir!! Amazing! The HANGI was deeeelicious, I swear this was the highlight of our stay in Rotorua and highly recommend it. #KIAORA
