Discover the perfect island Pacific island paradise of Niue.
If you are a couple who appreciate nature in its finest form, who get a thrill from swimming with dolphins and whales as they frolic in the ocean, enjoy diving and caving (as one of the world’s largest coral atolls you’ll find a series of reefs, canyons,chasms and caverns above and below the water), get a buzz from fresh air and pristine surrounds, then you’ll feel like you’ve found your nirvana in Niue.
A honeymoon or romantic getaway here will give you a chance to not only reconnect with nature but to also reconnect with yourselves, both on an individual level and as a couple. Although there are less than 100 hotel rooms in Niue you won’t have to sacrifice comfort – take the Matavi Resort, where you can sit on cliff-top decks and watch spinner dolphins in the ocean, or if you visit in the right season, the Humpback whales might pass right past the resort. Or book a local guesthouse and get to know the people of this little paradise, their customs and ways. There are apartments and motels, too.
