Where to stay in Paihia

As a welcoming tourist town, Paihia offers a range of accommodations suitable for visitors with a diverse set of criteria. Boutique hotels and self-catered apartments dot along the coast, some offering excellent views of the bay on request. While most lodgings are located in the town center, farther out you can find campsites and resorts that, because of the settlement's modest size, still put you within walking distance or a short car journey of the wharf and town center.
