Nice place to get away from it all, briefly. We took a weekend out and went with a large group (11 of us) to Jais Aben for Saturday-Sunday. All in the group from the local Madang area. The resort is a little way out of town so it feels a bit like you're going on a journey. The staff is... More

Traveled with family of 6. Rooms were filthy, cockroaches, bathroom so black with grime and mould that we didn't use the shower. Dangerous entry to our cabin, but others looked better. Thin sheets and towels that were not really clean, terrible conditioner noise and one that didn't work in my son's cabin. I would not stay here again. Small pool,... More

Stayed a few times with international groups, always looking forward to relaxing at this beautiful resort overlooking the lagoon and nearby islands. Especially peaceful after travelling from the Highlands. On the weekends the resort bar is especially popular with local families enjoying Sunday afternoon with music and fun. Atmosphere of the South Seas for everyone to enjoy. Friendly staff, good... More

The resort is nice enough considering the location in PNG. It's a ways away from the main town which means not much to do for activities if you're not in the water, but also that it's relaxing and quiet. Staff work hard to ensure your needs are met, rooms are cool (good AC) and clean. A small tablet of soap... More

I spent Christmas at a birthday party in Jais Aben Resort. It was packed with a great band as a backdrop to this unique landscape. The Manager couldn't do enough for us. The staff were great, as always. I'm a frequent visitor to this last bastion of real life. Such a perfect spot to relax far from the madding crowd.... More

Five amazing friends, decided to spend Christmas together, away from the busy working centre of Lae. After a bumpy five hour drive, we arrived at the scenic Jais Aben. One couple decided to go to their room and found trouble upon opening their door, as their key didn't work (door wouldn't lock, even after receiving help with a master key).... More

We didn't stay here, but on the Sunday morning of Father's Day when the fans at our flat in Madang town suddenly stopped due to a power outage we knew *exactly* where we were going to be spending the day. Jais Aben! We staked out a table in the outdoor bar by the beach and enjoyed swimming in the pristine... More

Eleven perfect days. The perfect Manager and a 5 star chef in a 5 star resort. I enjoy an adventure when holidaying. This is the place to be if you want to swim with Nemo and his friends in pristine gentle waters surrounded by islands and mountains and friendly people. Kayaking in the lagoon or further afield is your choice.... More
