The Airways Hotel in POM is a secure place to stay with great staff, excellent service and great food. Room was a little old but in good condition. Food was really good with good variety. The staff were a stand out. They could not do enough for you, nothing was a problem for them. An oasis in an edgy town.

The Airways hotel in Port Moresby, PNG, as the name suggests, is close to the airport. Indeed planes taking off and landing are not only seen but heard. But the most notable feature on arrival at the Airways is the small army of security stationed absolutely everywhere. I have stayed in both the hotel and the residences - both are... More

I would recommend eating here if you are in POM. Lovely atmosphere, beautiful food that is well presented. The staff are some of the best in POM. Wednesday night is a seafood buffet, great selection if you don't eat seafood too. Nice view from the dining room.

Great place to take a break. Clean comfy rooms, friendly , helpful staff. Very close to the airport with shuttle bus to and from. Pool, restaurants all in walking distance. Disabled access may be difficult with stairs to most rooms and fairly steep walkways.

Airways Hotel is a campus containing several buildings in a park like setting. Security is an issue in Port Moresby. At this property, however, guests can freely roam these grounds, which contains a track, without worrying about personal safety. All rooms are air conditioned and contain a ceiling fan.

They were renovating the hotel so there were a few problems with the organization but nothing major. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant wasn't actually that bad, considering that every other place where we eat was terrible... This place at least is secure and you don't see employees going around with the typical red mouth which... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Airways Hotel is nestled into the mountainside in its own botanical gardens with stunning views from crystal clear waters of Bootless Bay to the majestic mountains of the Owen Stanley Ranges. While its surroundings are remarkable, the hotel's international reputation has been built on equally unique interiors, not to mention first-class service and a passionate attention to detail. The hotel offers finely appointed rooms, exquisite decor and world-class facilities in an environment that is calm, secure and spacious. You will also find one of Port Moresby's most popular social hubs, a place for business meetings and networking, and weekend family relaxation.
