Hotel Review: Crowne Plaza Port Moresby

Perched on the hilltop overlooking Ela Beach in the centre of Papua New Guinea’s business district is the Crowne Plaza Port Moresby.

Just 15 minutes’ drive from Port Moresby’s Jackson International Airport, the Crowne Plaza Port Moresby makes for a great base when exploring the city and surrounds. The National Museum, Art Gallery and the peaceful boardwalks of the National Capital Botanical Gardens are all within 20 minutes’ drive.

However being located in the business district does not take from the coastal ambience, with the property also offering panoramic views of the Coral Sea from its vantage point on Tugubaga Hill. This also allows for the cooling ocean breezes which are welcomed on the summer days.

Overall the property has kept some local theme mixed in with the standards expected of a Crowne hotel. The foyer is decorated with artefacts drawn from Papua New Guinea’s diverse cultures and the walls hold pictures of the country’s heritage.

The hotel restaurant, Rapala, has a signature grill menu that is complemented by a fine wine list while the casual Pondo Tavern serves comfort food on its deck. Breakfast is served in Rapala restaurant daily.

Other facilities include a 24-hour Fitness Centre, Business Centre and pool with recreational deck. There is wireless internet available throughout the hotel at a charge.
