Absolutely wonderful! Loved everything about this charming Island resort. Friendly staff, delicious food and great snorkeling. I stayed in one of the cabins on the beach and it was an amazing experience. Glorious sunrises and sunsets.

We spent part of a day and one night here between flights. The pick up from the airport was a little late however this was not a problem as the Gateway hotel kindly took us in their shuttle bus to their hotel where they phoned Loloata to unform them that we had landed. They then picked us up from the... More

We didn't stay the night at this hotel, we just did a day trip over to go scuba diving off the island. We did however have lunch at the restaurant and spent some time walking around so although I cannot comment on the rooms I can comment on the overall facilities. Please find a summary below: Positives: prompt pick up... More

As part of a package for our trek this was first and last night of a trip to PNG. The boat ride across the bay is pleasant. The bus ride to the boat ride is depressing, skirting Moresby's CBD, which may or may not be a good thing. Anyway, the arrival was interesting, onto the long jetty in what was... More

My hubby and I stayed here for our last night in PNG after a trip to Tari and Karawari. We were warned that Port Moresby is not safe so opted for Loalata. At first we were disappointed since it is advertised as a 'resort', and it is far from the case. When the owner was not around, the customer service... More

The best thing that you can say about this "resort" is that it is safe and they are resting on those laurels. The place is grubby with bits of trash around and "rustic" is too kind. All the reviews must have been written by trekkers who had eaten packaged rations for 7 days on the trail-the food was overcooked, had... More

Loloata resort is probably the safest place to stay around Port Moresby. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, prices in the area are high but in this respect Loloata is a fair deal. With some 20+ bungalows they offer an all inclusive formula, the food is good. Very friendly staff, so is the boss..

I was a regular at the Loloata Resort while I lived in Port Moresby. It was great getting out of town, and provided a lovely drive and day out. Diving crew is very professional, and the boats are new and easy to access the water in full diving gear. The accommodation is fairly basic, but air con rooms are available;... More

A stones throw from POM, Loloata is a breath of fresh air. It is completely unpretentious, with life set at a relaxed pace and nothing is too much trouble. The diving was good, without being great. The accommodation was all that it needed to be, it wasn't 5 star and there weren't tv's in the room, but really when you're... More
