Where to Stay in Alofi
Let’s cut to the chase, there are no “hotels” in Alofi. Accommodation in the capital of Niue is made up of guest houses, holiday homes and self-contained units. This means that every accommodation in Alofi is a boutique experience where you are one of 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 recommendation in this list of the best hotels in Alofi!
