The property will feature 88 one- and two-bedroom apartments with separate living, sleeping and working areas. Amenities will include laundry services, well-equipped kitchens and spacious dining areas.

There will also be a lounge for residents and guests, offering light meals, self-service options and evening cocktails. Plus, there are plans for a floor dedicated to leisure, to include a lap pool, leisure pool, well-equipped fitness centre, three spa treatment rooms and a recreational zone for children.

Sean Hunt, area vice president Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International, commented:

“We are excited to work with Steamships Trading Company Ltd. to debut Marriott International’s first property in Papau New Guinea.

“Following our signing of Marriott Executive Apartments in Melbourne earlier this year, this is an exciting signing and testament to the confidence our owners have in this brand.”

The Harbourside South development will also feature a retail floor and three floors of commercial space.
