Naumi Studio Hotel Wellington

maisieStaff Picks

An enchanting visual feast right in the thick of all the Cuba St action


Wellington Eye Centre welcomes patients from all over New Zealand to have their laser eye surgery performed in Wellington. You can have an initial assessment at one of our clinics in Hawkes Bay or Nelson with Dr Logan. For patients outside of those areas you may go to your local Optometrist. We then offer free accommodation in Wellington, as a one-off, when you come to Wellington for laser eye surgery. The Naumi Studio Hotel is a short walk from our clinic and will help make your stay easy and relaxing. Terms and conditions do apply, so please talk to our team if you want to take advantage of this offer.

About the Naumi Studio

Located right in the heart of the Cuba St precinct, this iconic heritage landmark has transformed into a visual feast for the senses; enthralling guests with eclectic spaces inspired from seafaring, the literary world and an enduring love.

Designed with a love story in mind, the spaces all reflect the story of Lady Naumi. A fictional custodian of the Naumi Hotel (her portrait hangs proudly at reception) who fell in love with a sailor. And so whilst waiting for her love to return from sea, she set up the hotel with him in mind. Details unmissed, you will find trinkets throughout, and witty messages left behind by the lady herself.

The hotel dazzles with the talents of New Zealand artists and designers. From a grand entrance on Dunlop Street, guests are transported into a sensory wonderland.

The exquisite grand bar sits proudly in the heart of the hotel, calling patrons to sample delights from the curated cocktail list or selection of award-winning New Zealand wines.

Flowing from the bar is the sumptuous lounge area, filled with stylish seating and surrounded by the books, oddities and objects the Lady Naumi and the Sailor collected.

Enter a pastel green dreamscape in our delectable Parlour area, where you can relax the day away people watching in this calming sun trap.

Naumi Studio Accomodation

You will be staying in either our Zing or Zest rooms, both lovingly renovated with a contemporary spin that still honours the charms of this unique heritage listed building. Some of the rooms highlights include SMART TVs with Netflix, tea and coffee, premium bath amenities, mood lighting, heating, double-glazed windows plus black out curtains and bedside USB/plug sockets. You will enjoy a night of undisturbed, restful sleep in your luxurious queen bed with Naumi’s signature bedding.

Zing – Queen Room

Not one to settle for convention, the Zing rooms cleverly integrate design and function. By optimising the space available and using pops of bold colour with floral accents these rooms honour the heritage past of the building but with a modern design twist. Rooms feature exquisite high ceilings and decorative windows for a ‘heritage chic’ experience. There is also the option of twin configuration.

Zest – Queen Room

Our Zest rooms offer a next level of comfort for your Wellington stay. Treat yourself to more space, your own coffee capsule machine and a personal pillow menu. Zest rooms also showcase pops of bold colour juxtaposed against clean geometric lines, romantic heritage high ceilings and feature windows.

Cuba Street ignites wanderlust with a multitude of dining, entertainment, cultural and retail attractions. There’s always something happening in this part of town; a look out of your window is never the same. Later this year, the hotel will be opening Lola Rouge, offering exquisite shared plate style Asian fusion cuisine amongst the most beautiful decor in Wellington.

Your stay at Naumi Hotel Wellington will be anything but ordinary.
