History


The Madang Resort is the oldest, most historic hotel in all Papua New Guinea. It’s origin dates back to the period of German colonial occupation prior to the Great War of 1914-18. During the period of German occupation a guest house was established on what was a part of one of the original coconut plantations overlooking the magnificent natural harbour. During the Second World War the original guest house was destroyed and rebuilt immediately after the war. From that time until 1975 the guest house was owned and operated by some of PNG most “colourful” characters. In 1976 the Barter Family acquired the property and have since completely rebuilt and extended what was known as Hotel Madang into the magnificent Madang Resort, PNG’s premier tourist accommodation.

Once seen, never forgotten, the Madang Resort is built on an absolute water frontage onto Dallman Passage, the beautiful Madang Harbour and Yamilon Lagoon and is set amidst 15 acres of stunning, landscaped tropical gardens, undoubtedly a real Pearl of the South Pacific. The MTS Difference - In place of People and Culture Menu.
