Just to add to my husband's too-brief comments about Airways: People come & go and rarely stay more than a few days - if that - in Port Moresby - and are never seen again. After spending a few days at the Airways, we returned 3 weeks later. When a member of the staff saw us in the lounge, he... More

Over the space of two weeks I ended up staying here on 4 separate occasions. The first two I was upgraded to the Dakota suites which are absolutely stunning huge rooms and beautiful bathrooms. The hotel is as good as anything I have stayed in Australasia. The standard Fountain rooms though for later two trips were substantially below that of... More

Dakota wing even has a free martini hour and many other amenities. The staff is superb. They are well trained and very helpful. Yes, the prices are high, but so is everything... More

This is clearly the best hotel in PNG but you pay for it. As with the other 2-3 very good Western hotels here, it's overpriced. Take a half a star off. But, if you want something comforable you have to pay up. Must just be the limited supply and mining industry happy to cough up. Best restaurant in PNG also.... More

An experience that will not be forgotten. Five star expectations with four star results is how I would sum up my stay at Airways Resort. Having worked in the hospitality field in my younger days at actual five star resorts and hotels I was a little disappointed from my expectations. The realisation soon hit after taking a driver around Port... More

This isn't a review on the property but on the dining option at the hotel. We recently had dinner in the Vespa Room with Chef Kardik attending to us.

Let's start with the decor of the hotel. It's stunning. Fountains, reflecting pools, beautiful art work made out of derelict aircraft and interesting lamp fixtures. The location is fantastic and if you can get a view of jackson's airport even better. The grounds are beautiful set amongst the natural jungle of the hills of port moresby. There are plenty of...
