Our Rooms

Moana Lodge offers a wide range of quality accommodation options for various groups and individuals.  We offer a range of rooms with different sleeping facilities, catering for a wide range of requirements, e.g. travelling as a couple, family, or group; or seeking backpackers accommodation for just yourself.

Our rooms include:

  • Combination of single, twin, and double rooms.
  • Larger family rooms.
  • Single beds in a 4-bed share room - often suitable for many backpackers travelling alone, and not requiring a dedicated ‘single’ room.
