Papua New Guinea, the eastern half of New Guinea Island in the Southwestern Pacific, is one of the last few destinations in the world to remain largely undiscovered. The diversity of its cultures and ecosystems are incredible—this is a place where more than 800 languages are spoken, and most of the population live traditional lifestyles far removed from urban areas. While its tourist industry is minimally developed, there are hotels in Papua New Guinea to suit a range of budgets and expectations, and with some preparation, a vacation here can be an unforgettable dream.
Among this mountainous, jungle-covered island are a handful of notable tourist hubs where you'll find Papua New Guinea hotels that can be hubs for epic adventures or places to stay and soak up the local culture. PNG's capital, Port Morseby, is the largest city in the South Pacific. Hotels in Port Moresby, which include apartment hotels ideal for families as well as luxury spa hotels, put you on the southeast coast of the island. Here, you'll be in prime position to see Parliament Haus, with its mosaic facade, and the National Museum, a showcase of the nation's cultural heritage and natural history. Visit the National Botanical Gardens for a glimpse of PNG's ecological treasures. The 60-mile Kokoda Track is an epic hiking route through Central and Oro provinces. The landscape is rugged and remote, and though the trek is grueling, the reward is an otherwise unattainable look into traditional village life and PNG's little-known World War II history. Another undeveloped destination of great natural beauty is Bougainville, a large volcanic island marked by valleys and caves, rivers and waterfalls. If lounging on sandy beaches is more your thing, visit Tufi on Cape Nelson or go island hopping in Milne Bay.
