Port Moresby’s Hilton Hotel takes shape
Work is continuing apace on Port Moresby’s new Hilton Hotel at the Star Mountain Plaza development at Waigani. The 16-storey, 212-room hotel is due to open in September and will have four restaurants and two bars, a business centre, health club, spa, and an outdoor pool.
There will be 164 standard rooms, 46 executive suites and two chairman suites.
Hilton will also manage the new Kutubu Convention Centre at Star Mountain. The centre will have a banquet hall with a capacity of up to 800 people, six meeting rooms and an outdoor amphitheatre.
Once finished, the PGK1.5 billion Star Mountain Plaza will be PNG’s first integrated commercial development, including hotels, shops and apartments.
It is going up in three stages. Stage one includes the Hilton Hotel and the convention centre, stage two is 160 apartments and shops, and stage three is another 150-room hotel as well as shops and offices.
