Accommodation in Napier

Napier is a truly unique city, and not just because of the memorable art deco architecture that makes it famous. This charming seaport city on New Zealand’s North Island overlooks Hawke’s Bay and offers visitors a wide variety of activities and adventures. Together with nearby Hastings, the two cities are collectively known as “The Bay Cities.”

When you walk around this pedestrian-friendly city, you won’t be able to miss the stylish buildings. The city was demolished by a terrible earthquake in 1931, and the entire city was built up with art deco flavours. Even today, the city is a hot draw for architectural enthusiasts, particularly during the annual Tremains Art Deco Weekend event every February.

Water and shipping are a way of life in Napier, especially on the humid summer days. Popular water activities include swimming, sailing, and fishing in the bay. Pandora Pond and Marine Parade are popular destinations for families looking for a little aquatic fun. Don’t forget to snap your own picture of Pania of the Reef, the most popular statue in the whole city, which is proudly on display on Marine Parade. Other popular family destinations include the National Aquarium and Napier Prison, the oldest prison in New Zealand, which has now become a tourist attraction.

The Napier region is also home to over 70 wineries and produces world-class vintages every year. If you love your vino, take some time to go on a wine tour. The nightlife is good in Napier. Visitors can enjoy a range of high-class restaurants, stylish cafes, and welcoming pubs. Local bands and theatre groups put on regular shows for those who love the arts.
