Lonely Planet review

The showpiece of the Trans Niugini Tours operation, Ambua offers commanding views across the Tari Basin and Huli homelands. In 2001 it was listed as one of the 10 best ecotourism facilities worldwide by National Geographic Adventure magazine. At 2100m, the lodge enjoys a refreshing mountain climate and attracts many birdwatchers and orchid enthusiasts. Guests are accommodated in individual, luxury, bush-material huts. The huts have a great 180-degree view and are surrounded by flower gardens with a backdrop of mossy forest. Grand opulence in such rugged circumstances is certainly impressive. Ambua is beyond the means of many travellers and most guests come as part of a Trans Niugini package on its private plane.

Our independent authors have visited Ambua Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended luxury hotels in Tari.
