Loloata Island Resort
Located just a 40 minute boat ride from Port Moresby, Loloata is a world away from its busy city neighbour with a quiet location, small white sand beach and doorstep snorkelling and diving. The island is located within Bootless Bay and offers some surprisingly good diving with over 29 dive sites spread over nearby reefs (including Nateara Reef and the Sunken Barrier Reef) plus a series of purposely-sunk wrecks.
First established in 1977, the property has been lovingly upgraded throughout to create an upmarket boutique resort with 68 tastefully appointed suites and villas, set overwater or on the oceanfront, overlooking the small private beach and house reef.
Rooming options include 20 Waterfront Executive suites; 40 Hillside Oceanview rooms and six water view rooms. The rooms are nestled into the side of the island, with their contemporary design and white colour scheme creating a lovely contrast against the vegetation. The resort benefits for a dive school, spa, restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, bar and garden. A selection of PADI Dive Courses are available.
Diving, snorkelling, swimming, spa treatments, water sports.
The best diving in the Port Moresby area is from late October to early December, although Loloata offers year round diving in many of its 29 dive sites.

It is difficult to comprehend that the holiday is over. PNG is a special, amazing place where you still feel like a traveller/explorer, not a tourist. The images of the extremely varied birds, culture, people and scenery will remain with me always. Thank you for arranging it!
About 90 percent of the tour was wonderful. Reggiana’s Bird of Paradise displaying on the first afternoon, awesome! Food was superb throughout (a first for Shirley and I!). Logistics were essentially smooth and punctual. Regarding the lodges Raintree Lodge served it’s purpose, a comfortable base. Rondon was contemporary and well appointed (lovely rooms). Kumul was, as expected, rudimentary but an experience enhanced by THAT BIRD FEEDING STATION!). I was literary just two metres away from a Bird of Paradise! Wailindi was relaxing and very efficient. Everywhere the people were so affable and welcoming!! Incomprehensible levels of diversity regarding the culture, remarkable.
