According to Maori love legend the seeds of romance were planted here on the sacred Island of Mokoia by princess Hinemoa and Tutanekai many generations ago. It is here on this sacred Island where Tutanekai would play love tunes on his flute to his lover Hinemoa who lived across the waters in the Maori village of Owhata situated on the eastern shores of Rotorua. It is here on this Island where the couple would finally meet, pledging their love to one another in what is known as the greatest love story in Maoridom.
We invite couples to follow in the footsteps of our ancestors princess Hinemoa and Tutanekai here on the sacred Island of Mokoia. Feel the warmth and love of their decendants, exchange your vows to each other in our company as we serenade you with their world famous Maori love song Pokarekare ana the song that speaks of Tutanekai's love for Hinemoa as deep as the waters of lake Rotorua.
