First the bad news. Don't try the phone numbers on their web site. After calling the two numbers from the web site, unsuccessfully, in order to schedule an appointment for a massage, I just drove there today, to be told that those numbers are not in use. Thank you. There were two people in front of me, so I went... More

I was in and out of Port Moresby three times during my recent trip to Papua New Guinea. I stayed in different accommodation each time. I spent two nights at Raintree Lodge at the start of my trip. The owner, Bernadette, and her husband made me feel very welcome showing me around their fabulous tropical garden and chatting to me... More

I have stayed here several times. The staff are always helpful and the rooms always clean and comfortable. They have free wifi. Reliable airport pickup. The restaurant is good. Nothing fancy, but good solid fare. Sometimes it takes a little while to get your order, but that is fine-- goes with the relaxed pace. Neighborhood dogs can be rude in... More

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night as we moved back into town from previous stay in Loloata Resort. Reasons for choosing this were because of its positive comments on Tripadvisor and reasonable room rate. Once we entered the metal gate of the hotel, it was a totally different atmosphere which we felt very safe and mistaken we were in... More

If you like marble and gold taps this isn't the place for you; mind you PNG may not the place for you either! The Raintree Lodge (not to be confused with the not yet opened all concrete Raintree Hotel) is something of an oasis in Moresby. It is secure, it's clean and the courtyard garden is an extravagant tropical garden... More

Although there are quite a few accommodation options in PNG's capital , none of them really cheap , Raintree Lodge is a well-kept secret hidden in the suburb of Boroko. Situated just off Bisini Parade and walking distance from what will be the new Bisini Sports Complex , venue for the July 2015 Pacific Games it is also a stones... More

One of the very nice things about this hotel is that standing out front of the hotel, one can see quite a variety of birds. I saw 12 in about an hour that I could identify. Some that I could not. The food here is ok but not great. The hotel ran out of beer on the 3rd night. Very... More

Stayed here for 7 days. The room is quite adequate. Very comfortable and big bed. Shower is awesome - huge! The restaurant serves superb food (takes a while). The staff is gracious, flexible and very helpful. The location is not great but otherwise highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Raintree Lodge, a small property with pleasant courtyard garden in the Boroko region of Port Moresby. We were pleased with the spacious room and comfortable king size bed, and the bathroom was well appointed with an enormous shower. The A/C and TV worked well. Contrary to several other reviews we had free WiFi... More

We stayed for two nights before leaving PNG. It has all you need for comfort. Fridge and tea making facilities, and tv (Australian stations if I remember correctly). Very spacious showers. No hair dryer but you can ask to borrow one from reception. A restaurant on site. A bit of a way out of town but airport side and you... More
