I spent an incredible 3 day working cruise with new friends to Long Island. The Kalibobo spirit is an outstanding vessel. The exterior of the boat was extremely comfortable, we only had 6 guests and the boat could easily hold many more. The cabins were luxurious, double beds with ensuite. It was quite comfortable cruising even with a bit of... More

Thanks for taking time to send a review on our trip aboard the Kalibobo Spirit to Long Island. It was a great pleasure in having you aboard as it gave me a better understanding about the massive eruption that happened more than 300 years ago and we look forward to hearing more about the exact date after the carbon dating...

This year we are expanding accommodation with 10 one bed room apartments and 2 bedroom apartments located overlooking Dallman Passage.

Working and living in PNG can be quite exhausting sometimes so this is the perfect place to come for a break. We stayed in Kalibobo Village and enjoyed the beautiful location, the spotless and well equiped rooms, the cosy beds and the extremely helpful and friendly staff.

We appreciate your review, like you we think Kalibobo Village remains one of the best resort style properties in PNG. A great deal of time is taken to maintain the gardens and lawns. The rooms have recently been refurbished with new beds and coverlets and as you have experienced, the staff are genuinely friendly and consistently hospitable towards our guests.... More

On yet another visit to Madang we stayed at the Kalibobo Village. Set along the waterfront with views across the harbour to Krangket Island with balconies overhanging a crystal blue lagoon with a sandy beach surrounded by manicured lawns. The room was a good size and had unique coconut furniture with Italian leather, balcony, 42" flatscreen TV, kitchenette and lounge.... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review on Kalibobo Village which often gets confused with the Madang Resort. Whilst under same ownership it is a different resort adjoining the Madang Resort and many of the facilities are shared including the marina, tennis court, dive shop, restaurants, conference facilities. The main difference is that most of the suites in... More
