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 guesthouses. Although you’ll never feel like it’s too “crowded”, we’ll still share some of our favourite boutique accommodations in Niue with you in the list below.
