The Best Accommodations in Alofi
Let’s cut to the chase, there are no “hotels” in Alofi. Accommodation in the capital of Niue is made up of guesthouses, holiday homes and self-contained units. This means that every accommodation in Alofi is a boutique experience where you are one of the very few guests. You’ll find rooms for backpackers, self-catering accommodation for families, as well as more premium units should you be looking for something a bit special. We go through all of our top recommendations in this list of the best hotels and places to stay in Alofi!
