Lamana has a pleasant airy feel – with its open staircases and small garden features. Reception was welcoming and professional. When it turned out that there was no wifi and no internet (even on cable) for most of the four days I was here, the IT staff were very quick and responsive but unable to fix the problem reportedly external to the hotel. They sold me a 150K card for the pleasure but refunded this in full on check out. Lamana restaurant was pleasant although some of the food was slightly disappointing given that this is Palazzo Restaurant and is usually rated very highly. The rooms were simple and comfortable with small flat screen TVs (although the selection of channels was limited). Like all PNG hotels it has good security but unlike many it wasn’t an overwhelming presence. The hotel is also conveniently close if you’re working with the PNG Health Department. In line with the boom in mining and gas in PNG, Lamana is also building a new extension which includes a new restaurant and spa. I would return here despite the internet issues.
