Heralding a new era for Papua New Guinea’s accommodation and conference facilities and taking the destination’s first-class offering to levels previously unseen, The Stanley Hotel & Suites in Port Moresby has officially opened its doors for business.
Dominating the landscape and standing 18-storeys high in the heart of the PNG capital close to Parliament House, government offices and many foreign embassies and consulates, this brand new luxury facility offers 433-rooms, including 99 serviced apartments and a 340-square-metre Presidential Suite located on the 18th floor.
State of the art facilities include a 60-seat, fine dining grill-style restaurant, a split level executive club lounge, more than 2,000 square metres of function space and the largest ballroom in PNG at 1,600 square meters.
Add to this a lobby level, cafe-style restaurant and a lounge bar offering all-day dining, a 3,000-square-metre outdoor area and pool deck on level four, a gym and a full day spa with five large treatment rooms and a hot tub.
Hardly surprising a very excited General Manager, Geoff Haigh has positioned the hotel as comparable with any five-star hotel in the world and “one that has changed the Port Moresby hotel landscape forever.”
“Officially we are still in our soft opening period, but both local and international demand is already strong and interest levels are very high,” Mr Haigh said.
Located just three kilometres from Jackson International Airport and six kilometres from Port Moresby’s main downtown area, The Stanley Hotel & Suites conveniently adjoins the city’s biggest shopping complex, the Vision City Mega-Mall.
