Paihia is the jewel in the Bay of Islands crown and Ala Moana Motel is the most centrally located motel on the main Paihia waterfront, with the romantic town of Russell directly across the bay. Ala Moana is surrounded by an abundance of historical sites, walking tracks, cafes & good restuarants yet our accommodations are affordable & exceptionally clean.
Paihia bus depot & wharf, where all the water based excursions & the ferry to Russell departs, is just across the road. The village, with its shops, pharmacy, post office & supermarket is less than a 200m level stroll. Waitangi - our birth place, is a short walk or drive along the foreshore.
Remember those summer holidays of your youth? The beach cricket, burying dad, collecting shells - the swimming & endless sunshine seemed to last forever. Ala Moana Motel in Paihia is Kiwi owned and Kiwi operated and harks back to those times with the beach at our gate, spacious, clean and well-supplied units, not just a room! The perfect base for your Bay of Islands experience.Read More
