#1 Naumi Hotel Wellington

Despite only opening in November 2022, Naumi Hotel Wellington has quickly become one of the most popular hotels in the city. It might be the studio apartment vibe. Maybe it’s the floor-to-ceiling windows letting you absorb everything Wellington has to offer. But our guess is that it’s the combination of vibrant colours, a luxurious atmosphere and unique furnishings.


It’s close to Cuba Street, making it the ideal spot to return to after a big night out on the town or if you’re in Wellington to experience some of the city’s eclectic culture.

Best features:

  • Luxurious extra-long beds
  • Stunning views overlooking the city
  • The Lola Rouge bar for cocktails or a light meal
