InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has launched its first ever Holiday Inn Express in Papua New Guinea.

Set in almost five hectares of grounds, the new budget hotel is positioned in a “secure compound” 8km from the centre of the Papuan capital, Port Moresby. It offers 199 rooms, free breakfast, Wi-Fi, a gym and two squash courts. There is also a free shuttle bus to the city’s Jacksons International Airport, which is 6km from the hotel.

“Holiday Inn Express is our fastest growing brand globally so it’s great to see it launching in new markets across the region,” said Karin Sheppard, IHG’s chief operating officer for Australasia, Japan, Korea & franchise hotels.

“The first Holiday Inn Express hotel in Southeast Asia launched in 2012 and since then, we’ve already grown to a total of 12 hotels across Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. We’re looking forward to the launch of the brand in Australia next year too,” she added.

The new Holiday Inn Express Port Moresby means that IHG now has three of its brands present in Papua New Guinea. Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels are already open in Port Moresby.
