Napier

Enjoy the atmosphere and architecture of 1930s design in Napier, one of the best-preserved Art Deco cities in the world. After a catastrophic earthquake in 1931, much of the city center had to be rebuilt, and it was done so under the guidance of local architect Louis Hay, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. Now a shining example of the aesthetic of the time, the intellect and inspiration behind Napier's redesign can be seen on walking tours, or at your own pace. Other favorite things to do in Napier include a trip out to the coast to see the colonies of gannets that live there (if your timing's right), and relaxing with a glass of locally made wine in one of the city's many bars and restaurants. Napier is in Hawke's Bay Region. Our New Zealand online route maker allows you to schedule your trip to Napier, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
