Airways Hotel in Port Moresby is just two minutes from the airport. Set in 25 hectares of landscaped gardens, stunning views of the Stanley Owen Ranges and Bootless Bay are presented from your own private balcony. Twenty-four-hour room service, in-room safes, internet facilities and a business center are just a few of the other amenities you’ll find at this Papua New Guinea travel accommodation.
Ambua Lodge is located at 7000 feet in the Tari Gap area bordering on mid montane rainforest at the beginning of the valley grasslands. The forest canopy and eternal spring weather provides a natural setting to venture along the nature trails, cross traditional vine bridges, discover a secluded waterfall and spot high altitude orchids and rhododendrons. The lodge has thirty individual units set in a sea of flowers. All units feature 180-degree picture windows, en-suite bathroom and 24-hour electricity. The lodge features Highland architecture with a main building housing the lounge, bar, dining room and cozy fireplace.
PLEASE NOTE: Ambua is at an altitude of 7000 feet and this may cause you to breathe more heavily than normal. Take your time, get plenty of rest, and be sure to keep up your fluids. Enjoy the nature walks but be aware that paths can be wet and may be slippery, old footwear with good gripping soles is recommended. Tiled floors in the rooms can be cold so bring a light pair of slippers. Electric blankets are provided – turn yours on high before you go to dinner!
IE's Papua New Guinea tour guests at Karawari Lodge are accommodated in 10 cottages, each built out of local bush materials and inspired by traditional architecture. Each cottage has two private twin rooms, each with modern en-suite bathrooms and a veranda. Despite its remoteness, the lodge has 220V electricity, hot and cold water, comfortable mosquito-netted beds and ceiling fans. The dining and lounge areas, "Puk Puk" Bar and a vast collection of Sepik artifacts are housed in Karawari's main lodge building, designed and built in the form of a traditional "haus tambaran" or spirit house.
Originally commissioned for Papua New Guinea cruises on the Sepik and Karawari Rivers, the Sepik Spirit is now a floating hotel on the banks of the Sepik River. The Sepik Spirit's nine spacious rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, large windows and personally controlled air-conditioning.
Accommodation over the Mount Hagen Cultural Show weekend is at the Highlander Hotel. Surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens, the Highlander offers modern amenities, including a heated outdoor pool. Spacious rooms are equipped with satellite television, a mini-fridge, telephone and coffee/tea maker.
