Where to Stay in Niue with a Pool
You may have heard that Niue is a little different from your average South Pacific getaway. It’s a place with minimal beaches, a place with a lot of adventure, and a place that is down to earth. Most accommodations here don’t have swimming pools, but if you’ve got to have your pool time while you’re on an island getaway then at least you’re not at a loss! Niue has four properties on the island with swimming pools – not the biggest swimming pools, but enough to work off last nights’ beers or let the kids loose for a splash. This guide will tell you a little more about the accommodations in Niue with a swimming pool.

The Scenic Matavai Resort and the Scenic Matavai Apartments & Villa
The Scenic Matavai Resort is your obligatory resort on this South Pacific paradise, which of course, has a swimming pool for your pleasure! The main resort complex has two separate swimming pools, one on an upper deck conveniently leading to the resort’s Pool Bar, while the other is on a lower deck. Needless to say, it’s a kids’ hangout, especially in the busy season, but the best times to experience the pools all to yourself are on plane days (Mondays and Fridays).
Approximately 1.5km (0.9 miles) up the road from the main resort is the Scenic Matavai Apartments & Villa which has its own outdoor swimming pool to enjoy. This complex of self-catering accommodation has fewer facilities than the main resort, but still offers amazing ocean views, as well as a communal barbecue area. Guests here can still use all of the facilities of the main resort.
