Madang Resort Hotel
South Pacific Charm

One of the Great Hotel's of the Pacific, Madang Resort Hotel, is set alongside the beautiful entrance of Madang Harbour, amongst five acres of exotically landscaped gardens of native and hybrid orchids, palms and native flora.

The History

The Madang Resort Hotel has a rich and colourful history. It is the only hotel in PNG that dates back to early German Colonisation of Papua New Guinea, when Madang was known as Frederick Wilhelmshafen. It's name was changed to Madang by the Germans after an island near Finschafen, that resembled Madang.

The area experienced many influences, due to such things as the take over by Australian's after World War I. Extensive fighting took place by the Japanese, Australians and Americans during World War II and the subsequent period between 1945-1975 during which time the Australian Government administered the “Territory” on behalf of the United Nations.

The Location

Few hotels are centred so close to the thriving centre of the township, yet hidden and surrounded by interesting waterways, lagoons, parks and landscaped gardens with exotic birds and animals indigenous to PNG.

The Madang Resort offers the best of both worlds, the convenience of being close to the action, yet inside, a thousand miles away from the hustle and bustle!

The Accommodations

Madang Resort offers travellers a range of accommodation from inexpensive budget rooms to luxurious Waterfront Bungalows and Split-level Forum Suites overlooking Dallman Passage and Yamilon Bay. All rooms offer private bathrooms, air conditioning, telephone, satellite television, radio, and tea/coffee making facilities. There are rates to suit all budgets.

The Restaurants

Madang Resort features 3 outstanding restaurants to suit any occasion. Haus Win, Papua New Guinea's oldest and best known restaurant; Janek Aben, open from 6am for breakfast and Haus Kibung, ideal for functions and events. At the Madang Resort the main restaurant is the newly rebuilt ‘Haus Win’–featuring open dining along the waterfront, large aquariums, live music, a cocktail bar and seating for up to 350.

The Diving
