Every Thursday enjoy Tamanu Beach Resort’s Takurua “Special Feast”. This weekly evening event is a chance to experience genuinely traditional Aitutaki flavours. After, be wowed by an energetic performance of Cook Islands song, dance, fire dancing and more from the cultural group TE AITO.
The night begins at 6:30 pm with a cocktail, wine or beer as you listen to live island music. The buffet dinner is served from 7 pm and consists of island-inspired cuisine including a fantastic dessert selection showcasing the sweetest of organic tropical fruits.
As the sun disappears, our traditional Fire and Dance show light up the Aitutaki lagoon and the night sky at around at 8.30 pm “Aitutaki time”.
The dancers, donned in traditional costume, take you on a narrative journey through the South Pacific. The night air fills with incredible energy – authentic dance, beautiful costumes, hand clapping and singing. The warrior men dance with fire to the rhythm of Pacifica drums while the women move gracefully singing in sweet harmony.
There’s a definite possibility that by the end of the night you’ll be up dancing along to the beat of the island drums as well.
It’s a ‘must do’ experience.
