Congratulations to Sushil and his team - your awards and accolades are well deserved. A magnificent hotel with great service and facilities, an oasis and sanctuary in Port Moresby. Well worth the visit. Vinaka vakalevu.

I had booked this blindly because I'd never been to PNG before. I was in town for business and had quite a bit of running around I had to do and visited with some community leaders as well. The hotel exceeded my expectations, but I guess I had booked the VIP suite by accident so of course that would've been...

Hello Ken B Thank you for your comments. I remember your group as the concierge were trying to put those big boards in the storage and loving it. Not many days we get big surf boards.

There's a reason why this hotel wins so many awards and hosts so many VIP visitors. It's simply the best. I've been staying at Airways for ten years and have seen the property grow and develop from a good hotel into one of the Pacific's very best. Just minutes from Moresby's Jacksons International Airport, the campus style property overlooks the...

I had visited Airways several times in the past during transits. Having to spend a night in POM on this occassion, I was keen to see if the hotel lived up to its reputation. It didn't disappoint.

This is a lovely place to relax and break your journey if you stop over in Moresby. The service begins with the hotel bus taking you the short distance to and from the airport. All the staff I encountered were polite, friendly and most attentive to my needs. The rooms I have had were not particularly large but quite adequate...

We came a bit early around 11:20 AM and asked the waitress if we can sit around until food is ready? She said no....I was shocked it sounds very unwelcoming to us. If they were not allowed us to sit on their tables and wait that means we have to leave....and this place is isolated it will take hours to...

Hello Estello Q Thank you for your comments.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and it was relative quiet and comfortable. This time I stayed in one of the suites. The suite had a kitchen, living room and very large bathroom and laundry. Which makes the small wardrobe stuck in the hall way seem a bit silly. The view over the airport is great and the...

Before heading off to explore the culture of the remote parts of PNG, it is definitely worth a stay at the Airways Hotel.

Hello Junebughiker Thank you for your comments. There are three different wings and all differ in decor. The hotel was designed by an architect and furnished by a qualified Interior decorator.

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.
