Guesthouses and B&Bs
Easily the best (as it is the only) budget option in town. It isn’t signed but take the road between the provincial government buildings and the church that heads up the hill, turn right at the first fork and left at the next fork...
In Wewak Boutique Hotel
If you’re looking to splurge, this would be the place to do it. This gleaming white, spotlessly clean, plantation-style hotel is easily the best accommodation in town and the only place with a pool...
Vanimo Surf Lodge
Opened in 2011 and within a frisbee throw of some of Lido’s best breaks, this lodge is aimed squarely at the surfing market and many of its clientele come here on package deals with World Surfaris (www.worldsurfaris.com)...
This is a basic self-contained home. Linen, cutlery and pots are all supplied.
The cheaper rooms with shared facilities were a bit musty on the nose but those with small private bathrooms passed the sniff test and came with TVs...
Ambunti Catholic Mission
Ask the boat driver to drop you here at the bend of the river just before Ambunti Lodge. It can sometimes provide meals but bring emergency rations just in case.
This lodge has seven double rooms, two shared bathrooms and its own generators to run the air-con. Grilled pork chop or chicken meals (K27) are served with rice and cabbage...
Cletus Smank Guesthouse
Local guide Cletus Smank also offers accommodation in his family home. He’s in the process of building a separate guesthouse, but until it’s finished guests are accommodated in rooms with mattresses (no beds) and mosquito nets...
Jimmy is a well-known entrepreneur, and this guesthouse is one of the many pies his fingers are in. The basic rooms are a work in progress and surround a communal lounge decorated with mermaid murals and carved posts...
To contact the church guesthouses, send a message via MAF to the appropriate pastor.
Maprik Wakin Hotel
The only difference between the VIP and standard rooms is that the VIP ones come with their own bathroom. Otherwise expect the same c1970's lino and mismatched curtains. The Wakin is near the town market.
Min Baptist Union Guesthouse
This house has one double and three singles in a simply furnished home.
Niamikum Guest House
If arriving by PMV you'll need to arrange with the driver to run you the extra 2km out of town to this camp. The cabins here are scattered through spacious grounds. There is a communal kitchen but no bathrooms, just a river; go easy on the soap.
Paradise New Wewak Hotel
There hasn’t been anything ‘new’ about the New Wewak Hotel for some time...
Ralf Stüttgen's Place
Ralf, a naturalised citizen, has been knocking around PNG for some time; first as a missionary and more recently as an artefacts dealer...
Sandaun Surf Hotel
The hotel is reminiscent of a string of railway carriages – a series of large airy bungalows, each with a wooden floor, overhead fan, TV and fridge – and the smartest accommodation Vanimo has to offer...
The Seaview has had incarnations as a hotel and police barracks, but it’s a hotel again now, though the police barrack vibe still lingers...
Sepik Surfsite Lodge
The prime, beachside location and the haus win (open-air structure like a gazebo) restaurant (mains K40) are the chief draws here...
Located in Kreer Heights, the SIL Guesthouse is clean, secure and comfortable but is often full. Besides the standard rooms, there are several furnished two-bedroom flats with kitchens, bathrooms and TV...
The newest hotel in town, Talio Lodge consists of a series of overpriced prefabricated rooms that look like shipping containers with decks and a ranch slider door. They’re smart, modern and impersonal inside...
These nine bungalows are in the seaside village of Yako (PMV fare K1.50), next to Baro School, on the way to the Indonesian border...
Telefomin Baptist Association Guesthouse
As with ABSM guesthouse, you get the whole house to rattle around in.
Vanimo Beach Hotel
The well-trimmed gardens and traditionally inspired bungalow apartments make a pretty impression when you arrive and are very comfortable...
This is a steep walk from town at East Tower - head for the antennae array. Oddly, the more expensive self-contained deluxe rooms have no windows and are pretty grim. Meals are available and feature yams, sago, banana and fresh fish...
