Karawari Lodge stands majestically on a lone ridge 300 metres above the banks of the Karawari River and overlooking an endless expanse of dense tropical lowland rain forest.
This a great place to stay in Papua New Guinea to really get under the skin of the country.
The lodge offers just ten separate cottages, each built out of local bush materials and inspired by traditional architecture. Each cottage has two private twin rooms, each with modern en-suite bathrooms and a communal veranda.
Despite its remoteness, the lodge has electricity, hot & cold water, comfortable mosquito-netted beds, ceiling fans, and a breezy veranda.
The dining and lounge areas, 'Puk Puk' Bar and a vast collection of Sepik artefacts are housed in Karawari's main lodge building, designed and built in the form of a traditional 'haus tambaran' or spirit house.
