Small Island: Small Accommodations
Spoiler alert: almost all of Niue’s accommodation is boutique! With only one resort with more than 50 rooms, the rest of the small island’s accommodations consist of holiday homes, boutique lodges, cottage complexes, motels and guest houses. You’ll never feel like it’s too “crowded”, but we’ll still share some of our favourite boutique accommodation in Niue with you in the list below.
For accommodation so boutique that it’s just you, see the 10 Best Holiday Homes in Niue.
1. Turtle Lodge
As cute as a turtle, Turtle Lodge is a small guest house-style accommodation with only four guest rooms. It’s an ideal option if you’re solo, a couple or a family of three looking to stay somewhere on a budget, with two double rooms and two triple rooms available. Guests get to share a spacious and modern communal kitchen, lounge, laundry facilities and lawn, yet it never feels too crowded in this boutique lodge in the quiet village of Makefu.

2. Stone Villas
If only two villas are boutique enough for you, then you’ll love Stone Villas in Alofi. Stay in one of the unique limestone-constructed villas, suitable for two to three guests each. Make use of the self-catering facilities, dine on your private deck and enjoy just a short stroll to the town centre. What’s more, your experience is made all too easy with free airport transfers and a complimentary hire car. See more accommodations with included car rental in the 6 Accommodations in Niue with Car Rental.

3. Petite Hatava
It’s in the name! Petite Hatava consists of only two self-contained units, which are pretty petite in themselves yet still comfortable and quiet outside of Alofi town. Watch the sunset from your private verandah, then retreat to your stylishly furnished self-contained unit with a full kitchen and separate bedroom and bathroom.

4. Taloa Heights
If you’re looking for a boutique resort experience, then the closest thing you’ll find on Niue is Taloa Heights. Perched on a hill at the back of Alofi town, Taloa Heights offers five self-contained bungalows, one studio apartment and one villa. The attractive timber-lined apartments have all you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday (not that you’re too far away from Alofi’s restaurants), while also being just a few steps away from the accommodation’s outdoor swimming pool.
5. Bella’s Guesthouse
Niue has a fantastic selection of homely guest houses that will help you stick to your budget – just see the 10 Best Guest Houses in Niue. One of the most boutique options is Bella’s Guesthouse, located in Alofi and just a short stroll from the town centre. Stay in one of the three guest rooms available, whether it’s a double or a twin room, and make use of the communal facilities that, understandably, never feel crowded.
6. Lau’s Getaway
Just two villas are available at this luxurious accommodation in Avatele. Lau’s Getaway consists of two split-level accommodations elevated on the cliffs with unobstructed views of the vast Pacific Ocean. Although you’ll have everything that you’ll need, from a full kitchen to a spacious separate bathroom, it’s the little additions that are bound to take your breath away, like gourmet breakfast hamper and wine on arrival, your own outdoor bathtub for two, an espresso machine, binoculars for whale watching and more.

7. Namukulu Cottages
Located in one of Niue’s smallest villages is the boutique cottage complex of Namukulu Cottages. Stay in one of the five self-catering cottages with a private balcony and barbecue to enjoy. From couples to families, there’s a cottage big or small enough to suit most needs. The cottages are backed by lush forest yet surround an outdoor swimming pool for that true holiday ambience. There’s access to a stunning lookout over the Pacific Ocean, yet you’re just a short walk away from island highlights like the Limu Pools.

8. Taoke Fales
Stay on the “alternative” side of the island, on the wild east coast of Niue with Taoke Fales. Based in the village of Lakepa, Taoke Fales offers three bungalows nestled in a beautiful coconut grove. It’s the ideal place to stargaze away from civilisation and have close access to the ocean via nearby sea tracks. The bungalows have kitchenette facilities, as well as a barbecue.
9. Anaiki Motel
A motel with just four rooms sits on the cliffs of Makefu, close to highlights like the Avaiki and Palaha Caves. The Anaiki Motel has only four guest rooms with self-catering facilities, a queen bed in a separate room and a sofa bed in the living area. The drawcard to this property is not only the tranquil setting but the unique cliff-edge deck and lookout area where you can watch some of the most stunning sunsets on the island.

Last but certainly not least, Breeze is your chance to stay in one of two colourful cottages on the oceanfront of Avatele. Ideal for couples or a couple of friends, the cottages are a studio-style accommodation with self-catering facilities, lounge, breakfast bar, a large separate bathroom and either a king or twin beds. WiFi, airport transfers and bike hire are provided, while you might also enjoy the walkway through the coral gardens to a whale-watching deck on the cliffs.
