Consulting for Freeport and after spending a week in guesthouses this was the best you can find. Big rooms, excellent bathrooms and good service. restaurant is good, but do not change the menu often. Wine choice is poor. Surroundings are stunning, golf course good and the pool even better. A winner in West Papua.

If you say you are having lunch and a drink they might just let you use the pool. It's a slice of what timika could be like if the money that pours in and out of the Freeport mine to the wealthy people could look like. No scooters. Clean water. No rubbish. Stunning pool in a beautiful environment.

fantastic hotel! but in the middle of no where. Hotel Manager ( Hendrix) and staff all very helpful. Food in the bar and crab pot ok but could be better. Cheap drinks. Rooms are top class and very reasonable prices. Taxi in to timika 300,000 for 3 hour service. 45 minutes to the Coal plant in portsite
