Have become a frequent diner at their newly opened Spices n Italian restaurants and will have to say that the food and service is the best in Port Moresby. The attendance by the waitresses are commendable and are always waiting to help. Food is delicious and really prepared well. Nice air-conditioned areas or sit n bask in the open air...

What a refreshing break from the constraints of PNG and Port Moresby society. The executive rooms are world class and reasonably priced. The choice of food and bars is unique in PNG. We went 10 pin bowling (yes in Port Moresby!) then ate at Rio's the Brazilian steak house, what an epic paleo meal. Well done Lamana, we will be...

The hotel lobby is very nice. Room was basic and big. I would normally give this hotel a 3 to 4 rating. But security was a different issue. They had a gate and security but on the last night a security guard got shot with his own gun outside my room. A school had a dance/celebration and the young people...

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. We sincerely apologise for the incident which was the first to happen and was an accident and not an actual shooting. We have since taken greater precautions with our security team being more vigilante with this.

The best thing about Lamana is the facilities. You won't be stuck eating the same food all week because there are so many restaurants to choose from. There are so many things to do right on site that you won't feel like you are stuck in a boring hotel like almost every other hotel in Moresby. The staff are helpful...

Spent the weekend here with friends. The service was great. I like the new set up and that the staff are so friendly and quick to attend. We had to check out a bit later then scheduled and they were understanding and helped. Above all I give it a 4/5

I was put here by Air Niugini after a cancelled flight. The notable thing about Lamana is the central stage and party area, surrounded by indoor and outdoor bar areas and some restaurants (I ate at "The Italian", which was expensive but quite good). I went to bed at 9:30pm due to an early flight, then was woken up around...
