Whakarewarewa - Rotorua's Living Maori Village

Experience Whakarewarewa, Rotorua's living Maori Village, conveniently located only 500 metres from Distinction Rotorua Hotel.

Set amidst a landscape of erupting geothermal activity discover the wonders of Mother Nature and learn how the Tuhourangi/Ngati Wahiao people have come to live in harmony within this unique environment.

Sit back and relax at the twice daily Maori Cultural Performances whilst being entertained through song and dance.

Interact with local artists and learn how to make your own Harakeke (flax) treasure with a professional weaver, or have a private session with a Taa Moko (Maori tattoo) artist to produce your very own design set on an A4 laminated sheet.

Indulge your senses and try the Traditional Geothermal Hangi, Hangi Pie or Corn Cob, a tasteful and refreshing experience.

Whakarewarewa is also the home of the world famous Pohutu Geyser and Prince of Wales Feathers Geyser, so there is the chance to see these in full eruption as they are absolutely amazing. With the steam from the bubbling pools and the smell of sulphur, it just adds to the overall experience.
