Where to stay on Niue
Niue Backpackers: Alofi central, no pool, no air conditioning, rooms are very simple, but for a backpacker absolutely fine, just $25 a night, usually no mixed bedrooms, Ira (owner) was super friendly and she showed us nice places on where to go, accommodation is above the yacht club and Ira is usually in there, you can buy a few cold drinks, they don’t offer tours but will definitely help if someone wants to do a tour
Namukulu Cottages & Spa: About 10 min drive by car to Alofi, a lovely silent place with a great view to spot some whales, best for families with kids older than 10 years, Spa & Massage treatments, 4 huge dogs, they have a pool, the view from the rooms is not really special, but also nice, the owners are friendly and take care of everything, no restaurant or bar area, they don’t offer tours, very close to Limu Pools (best snorkel place) and nice caves
Stone Villas: Close to Alofi (about 3mins by car), no air conditioning, but fans (you don’t need an air con though, because it is pretty cool as villas is built of lime stone), the two Units are wonderful and charming (we loved it!), no views (villas are in the bush), very separated and nice for couples, you have everything you might need there and the rooms are nice, owner was very friendly, self-contained Unit, they don’t offer tours
Restoration Reef: Alofi central, STUNNING view (house in the rocks with own walkway to a viewing platform) over the cliffs and the sea, absolutely amazing and ideal for younger couples and honeymooners (as walkway to viewing platform is a bit dangerous, not a place for children or older people), booking needs to be done early enough, simple room but with ocean view, no pool, no air con, owner very friendly, self-contained Unit, don’t offer tours.
