      4/5 Good

      food's good, the aviary is the real attraction

      This booking was made by me for another person, who said that the food at the Sanctuary is good, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Except for the fact that the animals and birds are in cages, he loved the aviary, where he saw many of the creatures he knew to exist in PNG but were hard to see in the wild.

      5/5 Excellent

      Recommend if you have a few days in Port Moresby

      This was my first stay at Sanctuary and I truly enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful, the grounds are lush, tropical and relaxing. The rooms are lovely. The staff is diligent to keep everything clean.and fresh.There is a little menagerie where you can get close to some healthy, well cared for native birds and animals. Close to Parliament, the National museum and the Nature Park near UPNG.

      We liked the aviary at the property, which has a reasonable size for the birds / the caretaker of the aviary was very kind showing us around the place. Disliked the weak internet service and the big fish inside a small aquarium. It's animal cruelty to say the least.

      4/5 Good

      Big comfy bed, excellent food. I ordered from their local dishes menu and had my first good hotel meal in PNG (usually the food is terrible at the hotels)- it was fabulous.
