Pinewood Lodge can offer you a unique experience that other restaurants for big groups in Queenstown cannot. Enjoy a traditional Hangi pit dining experience and a traditional Kapa Haka performance on-site. 

Hāngi (Māori pronunciation ‘ha:ŋi) is a traditional Māori cooking method using heated rocks buried in a pit oven under the ground. The Kapa Haka performance is approximately 30 minutes long with five members dressed in full kakahu (uniform). A further 15 minutes is allotted with 2 members to mingle and answer questions. The performance includes the traditional Māori welcome Pōwhiri, Waiata (song) including Haka and Poi participation.

We're the only location in Queenstown that can offer this. This uniquely New Zealand experience will leave all groups with very incredible memories of their time in Queenstown.

A Hangi & Kapa Haka performance can be arranged with a minimum group size of 20 people. Please inquire with our Groups Manager for prices and options:
