The Airways Hotel is one of the best hotel in Papua New Guinea! It is an independent hotel and has over 500 staff, hotel rooms, apartments, restaurant, bars, cigar lounge, a good gym, retail outlets, a spa and only 2 minutes from the international airport. I was in this hotel to teach the kitchen staff to cook Asian food and to conduct master cooking classes that were opened to the public. It was one of the most enlightening experiences in my life – working in a modern large kitchen but with lots of staffs who were not hospitality or culinary school trained. At times, the staffs here were so quick to understand instructions that I thought it puts the staff in my restaurant to shame!
