Tucked away, only accessible by boat, sits what may be Papua New Guinea’s best kept scuba diving secret - Tawali Resort. Welcome to the exotic culture of Papua New Guinea (PNG) and to Tawali Resort. Located on a volcanic bluff overlooking the clear protected waters of Milne Bay, Tawali offers travelers a unique location to dive, relax and enjoy the unspoiled wonders of this magnificent part of the world.
Covered walkways link the main reception and dining areas with the rooms themselves, which are huge. Two Queen size beds, air conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, fridge, safe, a well-appointed modern bathroom, and what may be the ultimate private balcony.
Overlooking the bay of reef-fringed, deep blue water, and framed by stands of tall tropical trees and the occassional fruit tree, is an outdoor setting that begs to be used to read, sip afternoon post-dive drinks or watch the resident pod of dolphins that seem to visit the bay every day.
Papua New Guinea is very diverse in its cuisine, from fresh barramundi cod cooked in a wrapping of banana leaves, boiled and roasted chestnuts and fresh fruit that would make any mouth water. Great care has been taken to make sure that the food is abundant and good. Local villagers have been taught the art of bread making and food presentation by several visiting chefs.
The new chefs have been able to bring their own unique list of ingredients and recipes to the table at Tawali. Local farmers raise the fruits and vegetables served at Tawali and we take great pride in the freshness and variety of the foods we serve. Breads are fresh made as well as desserts and snacks and beverages are easily available.
Three buffet style meals are served daily. Snacks, juices, coffee and tea throughout the day are included.
