NAMUKULU COTTAGES
Namukulu Village, Niue

OUR Thoughts on Namukulu Cottages
This is a wonderful location for a holiday in Niue. It’s around 10 kms from Alofi, (where most of restaurants and the main grocery shop is located), so once you start to explore you will need to rent either a car or a small motorbike (we are happy to pre-book a vehicle for you). From Namukulu Cottages it is an easy 2 to 3-minute walk down to Hio Beach which is accessed by a wooden staircase from the roadside. Hio is a lovely little cove, which, at low tide, can offer a rare opportunity on Niue – the chance to stretch out on a small sand beach. Just a 10-minute walk away from Namukulu Cottages you will find the beautiful Limu Pools – a natural rock-formed swimming pool with the clearest water you will ever see. Limu is a wonderful spot for snorkelling and swimming. Namukulu Cottages have bicycles available for guests’ use and these offer an easy way to access the many interesting natural beauty spots around this end of the island.

The cottages themselves are located around 500 metres away from the cliff-side on the edge of the low central plateau and from the property there are spectacular views out over the tropical forest to the sea beyond. Sunsets can be spectacular from here and whales can often be seen during the whale migration season.

Namukulu’s freshwater swimming pool is specially sited for secluded swimming and relaxing. The pool has a shade sail offering sun protection.

For the use of all guests there is wireless internet access to all Cottages (Internet connections on Niue can be slow but quite manageable for basic social-media purposes), snorkelling equipment (mask and snorkel) and bicycles are available for hire. 

The cottages and studios are not serviced during guests stay, but rubbish and compostable material is emptied daily. A guest laundry is available for guests wishing to wash towels, sheets etc.

Niue is a very popular holiday destination and accommodation can sometimes be difficult to confirm – especially in the peak winter periods.  We recommend you book this special little property with us as early as possible, but if your decision to visit Niue (and Namukulu Cottages in particular) is a last-minute one, we’ll always do our best to secure accommodation for you.

What Namukulu Cottages Say About Themselves:
Namukulu Cottages situated in totally tranquil tropical surroundings where you can just relax and let your mind wander. Relax on the private deck of your one or two bedroom cottage. Enjoy a drink while watching the spectacular sunsets, go to our lookout point and watch the whales go by, or just lounge by the pool.If you have a sense of adventure you can visit some of the islands favourite swimming/snorkelling spots and caves/chasms which are all within close proximity to us. These include Matapa Chasm, Talava Arches, Limu Pools, Hio Beach, Palaha Cave and Avaiki Cave.

Namukulu Cottages is about 10km north of the main town of Alofi on the sheltered west-side of the island near the coast. The airport is about 12km away and is a very pleasant drive through a number of small villages and plenty of tropical forests. The roads are sealed and offer a comfortable drive.”

Your Accommodation Options
Namukulu Cottages has 4 pleasant Cottages with a kitchen in each; all featuring individual covered decks which face the sunset and the panoramic views over a gently sloping lawn and tropical gardens. Three or four years ago, Namukulu opened their two Studio Apartments which complement their cottages very well and offer singles and couples a cheaper-priced alternative accommodation option.  The 2 Studios are in a stand-alone two-storeyed building near the front of the property from which there are views out over tropical vegetation to the ocean. One Studio is on the ground floor and the other on the first floor above.

While the 2 Bedroom Cottage includes laundry facilities, a separate laundry is offered for the use of guests in One Bedroom Cottages and Studio Apartments.
