I have wanted to visit PNG ever since we moved to Australia. Very interested in the culture and potential business opportunities. Thanks to my Niece who is playing on the USA Women's under 20 soccer team I got a chance. I brought my youngest daughter Bella with me and did not want to take a chance on staying anywhere but...

Most friendly staff, very well equipped! One time I even got bumped to platinum wing curtesy of the GM. A well set up gym with a big cardio room, swimming pool, steam room & sauna. Happy hour in the lounge from 5-7pm & it means free booze & snacks. Roof top restaurant with a mesmerizing view of the city POM!...

...by a long way. Great staff, food, service. Modern and clean rooms. It's expensive but you get what you pay for. Very close to the airport. I've stayed here at least 10 times on business and it never disappoints. Adequate gym, two pools, an on-site shop (shop n stop), several cafes.

This is an excellent hotel near the airport in Port Moresby. It is gated with armed security guards which unfortunately is needed in this high crime city. The hotel is very spread out and some of the rooms are quite a distance from the lobby and require negotiating stairs to get to the room. I had two heavy bags, one...

I have stayed at Airways at least a dozen times and normally stay in Dakota room, which is modern, great size, very clean and all that you would want. Complimentary food and drink served in the lounge area outside the room as well and they have a free cocktail hour everyday. Shayam from the front desk looked after all my...

Great location, great vue from the restaurant, nice food, friendly staffs. What else can i ask for in PNG when on travel. 2 min from the international airport. Great rooms when you are lucky enough to get the one on the second floor otherwise you are left looking at the road or car park when going on the balcony

Overpriced and very loud. The air conditioning is louder than the airport. The gated community concept makes you feel like you are imprisoned. You can kill yourself walking up the mountain stairs to the restaurant.

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.
