Feast on a traditional Maori dinner

If you enjoy the smoky flavour of otah or satay then you might just fall in love with this Maori dining experience. This lets you dine like a local Maori – all food is prepped using the traditional method of Hangi, where raw meats are cooked by using natural earth ovens.

The food is wrapped in either flax leaves or wire baskets and cooked in a large pit underground for 3 to 4 hours, creating a unique flavour and texture.

Unleash your inner wine connoisseur

Each type of wine will be accompanied by a bite-sized food offering, giving you insight about wine and food pairing.
