Scenic Hotel Te Pania invites you to enjoy quality four-star accommodation and hospitality. From the moment you step into our spacious, light-filled lobby, you will experience our commitment to quality and customer service. The Hotel’s slender curved form echoes the shape of the bay, and guests enjoy sweeping views out over the water. Fresh and contemporary, Scenic Hotel Te Pania is just a short stroll from Napier’s main art deco architecture and little wonder why it is a firm favourite of all its valued guests!

If the Convention Centre has been completed, how much view has been taken with this building?
Good morning. Yes the convention centre has been completed. The front of the building has now been cleared of any obvious signs of construction, ie scaffolding etc. As the convention centre extended outwards not upwards our view remains intact. Warm regards Kerryann

Is this beach suitable for swimming?
Hello I apologise for the delay. There is a surf life-saving patrol for the following hours: midday - 5pm weekends (Nov - mid March) 10am - 6pm weekdays until Fri 27th Jan We advise all our guests not to swim at the beach directly across from the Hotel. Westshore and Ahurir are much safer.

What size beds do the rooms have ?
Thank you fro ending through your question. We have two sizes of beds at the Hotel. We have super king beds ..request a king room for this bed size or we have double beds, the rooms with double beds have two double beds in them so they can easily be used as a twin room. Hope that this helps. warm regards Kerryann
