Napier is one of New Zealand’s most attractive cities, located at the south end of the Hawke’s Bay just 20 minutes out of Hastings. Palm trees line the inner-city streets and the wonderfully sculpted Marine Parade, as the name suggests, runs along the shore of the city. Along Marine Parade various parks, gardens and memorials give the water’s edge its distinct character.
Known as the Art Deco City, Napier has the most comprehensive collection of inner-city art deco buildings in the world. Every February, thousands of people flock to Napier to celebrate the Art Deco Weekend Summer Festival, sending the township back to a time of new hope. The Festival celebrates the reconstruction of Napier City after a devastating earthquake in 1931. Music, performers, dancing in the street, trains, planes and automobiles, picnics, galas, and frivolity in true vintage style bring the 1930s back to life.
The Scenic Hotel Te Pania at Hawkes Bay is one of the first places in the world to see the light each day, and the hotel enjoys a premium waterfront location on Marine Parade. The hotel’s slender curved form echoes the shape of the bay, and guests enjoy sweeping views out over the water. A fresh, contemporary style hotel, Scenic Hotel Te Pania is just a short stroll from Napier’s main art deco style street.
Scenic Hotel Te Pania invites you to enjoy quality four star Napier hotel accommodation of an international standard. From the moment you step into the spacious, light-filled lobby, you will experience the hotel’s commitment to quality and customer service.
