Marae Stays

(Video clip translation) “Some of our overseas visitors want to experience a marae stay, and enjoy a cultural exchange with Richard and I.”

Oputao  Marae is our cosy family marae based in Ruatahuna. Te Ngawari is the name of the wharenui (meeting house) and it can sleep up to 30 people. In keeping with Maori customary practice sleeping arrangements are in traditional style where everyone sleeps all together on the floor. Mattresses and linen are provided for your comfort.
