Cultural Shows & Activities

SAMOAN CULTURE EXTENDS BACK OVER 3000 YEARS - MORE CULTURE THAN YOU CAN ENCOUNTER IN JUST ONE VISIT!

A holiday the Samoan way wouldn’t be complete without attending a Fiafia Night.
It is a celebration of Samoan culture with a traditional buffet and entertainment featuring beautiful songs, graceful dances and the spectacular fire knife dance.

Fiafia can be translated as happy get-together, and the performers are very enthusiastic and proud to be able to share their traditional culture with the audience. The performers wear traditional lava lavas (by the men) and puletasis (women) which echo the vibrant colours of Samoa.

Following a sumptuous buffet using fresh produce from the local area, the night’s
entertainment of story telling commences with the women performing the beautiful Siva dance. The energy transforms as the men perform the Faataupati (clapping dance) and heats up with the Siva Afi (fire knife dance).

The evening culminates with the Taualuga (final dance) and guests are invited to
join in where they will learn a few moves to take back home to show their family
and friends!

Attending a Fiafia Night is always entertaining and provides the audience with an insight into the rich 3,000 year old culture only found in Samoa – Fa’a Samoa (the Samoan Way).
