There is simply nothing like Airways, one of the world’s most awarded hotels. While the 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. Here you will find Papua New Guinea’s best fine dining restaurant, its most modern and best Health & Fitness Centre in PNG, its most luxurious spa, and first class suites that have housed world leaders and celebrities. With PNG’s best-stocked wine cellar and attentive table service, Bacchus transforms every meal into a memorable dining experience. The marble 7 Wagyu tenderloin steak can rightly be considered the best steak in town. Indulge in fresh lobster – with cheese, grilled with garlic butter or butter poached.

With its spectacular views of Jacksons International Airport and the mist-clad peaks of the Owen Stanley Ranges beyond, a meal at Vue Restaurant is an experience not to be missed. The Restaurant was completely remodelled and expanded in June 2015, with a counter that is a bartender’s dream, new plush seating and a remarkable wave ceiling.

Jason Pini kitesurf PNG

The second largest island in the world offers 600 outer islands, atolls and coral reefs. Located northeast of Australia, PNG has a wide set of surf breaks, surrounded by WWII artifacts, marine life and sunken volcanoes.

Great surfing isn’t all that PNG offers. The same winds that surfers enjoy also make for perfect kite surfing which is relatively undiscovered. The warm waters of PNG are uncrowded and ideal for kite enthusiasts. The reef breaks provide great action for wave rider, while the pristine blue lagoons lure flat-water fans. Visit PNG from late May through to November to take advantage of the Laurabada trade winds, providing consistent 10.25 knot winds. Kite surfers should focus their attention on the southern part of PNG. Areas around Port Moresby and Milne Bay have optimal conditions and stunning scenery. Fifteen minutes from Port Moresby, Sero beach’s large lagoon gives way to a surf break 500 yards out. Daugo Island is a 20 minute boat ride from the Port and one of the best local spots to kite surf. Two hours down the coast, Hula is a large peninsula that receives the full brunt of Laurabada winds, creating the optimal environment for kite surfers. VIDEO

Papua New Guinea is the “last frontier” and the ultimate kiting experience with some of the most consistent trade winds in the world.
