A soaring, dramatic timber building right on the water's edge, decorated with fine Cook Islands art and crafts, TE VAKA Restaurant is the main dining room at The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa. Decorated with elegantly hand-carved oe (paddles) and traditional outrigger canoes (vaka) suspended from the ceiling, TE VAKA also features some of the resort's signature hand-crafted lighting.
Enjoy dining on the the long outdoor deck which sits directly over the water. From here you can even see the fish swimming below you in the lagoon or drink in the sun setting across the sea by evening.
Each morning enjoy a tropical buffet breakfast or select some cooked breakfast dishes from the a la carte menu. A great way to start your day in paradise.
In the evening, enjoy an Island BBQ buffet or one of the shows such as 'Legends of Polynesia' Island Night or a Fire Dance Show.
TE VAKA is also ideal for conference/incentive groups or larger wedding receptions, and is Rarotonga's largest private function room.
TE VAKA'S dramatic architecture and waterfront location make it ideal for enjoying some of the best views on Rarotonga of the sun, sand, sea and sunsets.
