Ela Beach Hotel opens K5 million refurbished precinct


ELA Beach Hotel has opened its Beachside Precinct giving customers and beach goers a fresh and contemporary social hub in the Ela Beach area of Port Moresby.
NCD Governor Powes Parkop, who officiated at the ceremony on Monday, thanked Coral Sea Hotels and parent company Steamships for their continuous contribution to the national capital.
Parkop said the latest developments on Ela Beach complemented his vision of building a smart and safe city for investment, tourism, art and culture.
Steamships managing director Rupert Bray said: “We share the governor’s vision of an ‘Amazing Port Moresby’, as it complements our own project development aspirations for the nation’s capital.
“The Ela Beachside Precinct is the latest of these developments and we’re very excited for the residents of Port Moresby.”
Bray said the precinct refurbished at a cost of K5 million was a single point destination with customers afforded a variety of choices to suit their circumstances.
“Busy commuters or families relaxing at the beach can pop into the Beachside Bakery to pick up a fresh cup of coffee and a pastry, or duck into Enzo’s Express for a delicious pizza or other takeaway food.
“For those with more time, Salt Restaurant offers all-day dining, with a generous selection of cuisines, and for those that just want to chill, there is the relaxed atmosphere of the Beachside Bar.”
