Things to do in Napier
National Aquarium of New Zealand:
Just a 10 minute walk from Aqua Lodge. Experience a truly diverse range of native and foreign aquatic animals and wildlife species.
Art Deco Quarter:
If buildings in the styles of the 1930s are your thing, then you should definitely visit Art Deco. A casual 15 minute walk from Aqua Lodge.
Visit Hawke's Bay's most spectacular waterfall, the 58-metre Shine Falls. A one-and-a-half hour drive from Napier, this massive waterfall is well worth the visit.
Bluff Hill Lookout:
Less than a 30 minute walk from Aqua Lodge, you'll find the best panoramic view of Napier, extending as far as the Mahia Peninsula and Cape Kidnappers on a clear day.
We were not expecting it to be a Backpackers so were pleasantly surprised by our motel style room with ensuite bathroom. It was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making facility. We had access to communal kitchen and laundry. And also met some nice people.
"The Manager had tried to set it up nicely for us and selected a room which was as quiet as could be at the premises, as requested. I had parking right outside the unit. A typical backpackers with fridge for milk, yoghurt, cheese - if marked as yours. And they stayed there :)."

"We enjoyed everything! The bed was comfy, bathroom super clean, kitchen has all utensils you can think of. We also used the bikes and the grill. Great quality for great price plus Glen is really amazing!"
"The manager is so helpful, willing to help you and trying to make it a better place. Good location, 5 minutes to Pak'n'Save and 10 minutes to the beach."

"The owner is one of the nicest and caring people we've ever met. We are staying here since 5 and looking forward to more weeks. We're feeling very comfortable in our room and I'm sure everyone who didn't expect a luxury hotel will be happy to. By the way it's cleaned every morning."

"This is now under new management and the current owner is getting things done. Cleaning up the place and replacing everything broken. The clutter has been removed gradually and the lodge is a much better place to stay at."
