Don’t be fooled by its sleek contemporary appearance and up to the minute facilities, Madang Resort traces its origins back to the beginning of the 20th century, during the German colonial occupation of Madang Bay. Ever since, the resort has welcomed travelers from all around the globe to witness the natural beauty and storied history of this unique and fascinating nation. It has established itself as one of the most iconic and must see destinations for anyone traveling to Papua New Guinea. Completely rebuilt and refurbished, its main building is set in 15 acres of paradisiacal tropical gardens facing the Madang Harbour and Yamilon Lagoon, one of the most beautiful harbours in the Pacific and a world class dive spot.

Madang has recently been highlighted as one of the world's “must-dive” destinations by Dive Magazine with a combination of unique underwater WWII wrecks (there are 32 sunken ships) and breathtaking marine biodiversity, all in clear waters offering incredible visibility. Niugini Dive Adventures is PADI certified and offers a range of courses. If you can tear yourself away from the underwater wonders, there are free of kayaks to explore lagoons, bikes to discover the local surroundings, tennis and golf equipment, jet skis, canoes and catamarans for budding sailors. There's even the offer of a helicopter safari!
Madang Resort is a real pearl of the Pacific thanks to its history, facilities and for its commitment to the local community and the ecosystems they rely on. Madang Resort funds and promotes sustainable management of marine and forest resources by local communities and promotes sustainable marine tourism practice. All of Madang Resort’s packages and tours function as a platform to connect with local resource owners and community tourism operators to promote community tourism in local and rural communities around Madang Province, the Sepik river, and the Bismarck Sea Provinces, so tourists enjoy an authentic experience that's good for communities and the environment. Operations are managed as sustainably as possibly, with careful management of natural resources. These efforts were recognized in 2015 at the 4th Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries, and FoodSecurity (CTI-CFF) and WWF.
