Accommodations Closest to a Hotel or Resort in Niue (Including Niue’s One Resort)
Great! You’ve found our accommodation article for Niue, probably because you searched for “hotels in Niue” or “resorts in Niue”. But let’s get one thing straight… Niue is not your South Pacific getaway bustling with hotels and resorts.

It makes for an alternative way to experience the South Pacific in utterly peaceful surroundings (except for the chickens, which you’ll learn to love by the end of your stay). So let us guide you through some of the top stays with this list of accommodations closest to resorts and hotels in Niue!
