Kalibobo Village is located in one of the prime locations in Madang town, with a large stretch of coastline overlooking the beautiful Madang Harbour. The grounds are spacious and well looked-after, with both a large pool and a lagoon. There is a nice restaurant that serves a wide range of quality food and drinks. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to explore Madang, offering harbour cruises, scuba diving and snorkelling tours, kayak, stand-up paddleboard and sailboat hire, as well as villages tours and other land-based activities. The town centre, including the main market, banks and stores, are only about 500 metres away. Overall, a great place to stay in Madang!
What a fantastic location! The property is located right on the waterfront with lush gardens, sparkling big pool and beautiful views across the harbour. It is also within easy walking distance to the town centre, markets and the Lighthouse. There are lots of artefacts available nearby. We highly recommend the waterfront rooms, we saw dolphins from our balcony. The resort has a good restaurant and very friendly and professional staff. The islands and surrounding reefs are easily accessible. A very relaxing stay!
We arrived at Madang, Papua New Guinea as part of our 43 day Maasdam cruise circling Japan to Sydney, Australia. After docking at the commercial port, we disembarked to visit Sir Donald Cleland Park, the Provincial Museum, Machine Gun Beach and the Coast watchers Light before ending up at this resort. Their 2 story lobby had a money exchange, hair salon, gift shop and reception to arrange for use of their large pool. We walked the garden that ran for 500 meters along the seafront seeing several Victoria crowned pigeons among their many flowering plants and trees. After stopping to see their large 2 story restaurant, we took their free shuttle back to the port knowing where we found the top place to stay on a visit to this town of 28,000.
We 9 friends have just had the best trip via Kalibobo Village & Resort on their luxury cruise boat "Kalibobo Spirit" - an expedition cruise on the Sepik river & to the volcano islands near its mouth. With the veteran owner-operator of the complex aboard as skipper & another PNG old hand in Dame Carol Kidu as guest lecturer plus the ruling Miss Pacific Islands & her team along, we were introduced to one of the world's unspoilt natural wonders - and the remarkable village peoples. Both Sir Peter & Dame Carol are evidently held in high regard and we could not have had better welcome everywhere. The river was running high after the wet season so our "river truck" had us landing in the heart of villages, planing along the wide river for miles, steering along what were normally jungle paths, or working through narrow "barat" canals to access remote villages - & always to a warm welcome where we could add a little cash to village economies. Each one had their own specialty in crafts & while we could not match the wonderful collection of artefacts at Kalibobo, we did bring home some remarkable pieces. Sir Peter brought back a young Cassowary for the resort gardens! The "Spirit" is a high quality cruise vessel with a large hospitable crew & provided a perfect home on the big river. This is an outstanding travel experience!…
