The place is a nice get away from the Port Moresby! If your looking for the island feel to start your diving and snorkelling adventure in Papua New Guinea (PNG) then this is a nice place to start your journey. I would recommend the dive and taking a walk to watch the sun go down.

After spending 4 weeks straight, working in Port Moresby, Loloata Island provided great sanctuary in it's ability to get us out of Port Moresby without having to drive for hours or board flights to do so. Although from a location and convenience perspective it is a fantastic option, the cleanliness and quality of the rooms and facilities didn't compare. The... More

We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Price includes the ferry trip to the island, meals, as well as trips over to Lion Island for snorkeling. The accommodation is very basic and dated, but clean and tidy. The food was okay. You can only buy a bottle of wine, not just a glass and prices are high... More

Stayed in this resort for 2 nights back in May. Reason for choosing it was because of its safety, reasonable all inclusive room rates and availability of snorkeling nearby. Pick-up at the airport was timely and the short boat ride was also very pleasant. We arrived early from Cairns, well before check-in time but we were able to enter our... More

We did a day trip from Port Moresby...picked up from the Crowne Plaza.....the whole day we were treated like royalty!! the snorkelling on Lion Island was beautiful...and for a novice like me very exciting...the colours were amazing. The food was average....but with a few simple changes could have been amazing. The resort itself is tired and in need of a... More

I came here just for an afternoon/evening after my conference before flying out. It was a good option for seeing a bit of wildlife if you are only in Port Moresby and don't have time to go very far. It was an easy ride from the airport and a quick boat ride. The food was great, although the cultural show... More

The drive to the jetty took us approximately 30 minutes from Jacksons Parade and it was okay. The roads however could be a lot better. Dangerous pot holes along the way and the sight of rubbish strewn is not good for the country. We got to the jetty on time and was picked up by the owner Captain Knight. Pleasant... More

I stayed here with some friends, each having our own room. The rooms were very basic and simple. The view and the location of the place is so nice that nothing else matters. The food is basic but good. Go there for a weekend.

Stayed there twice and enjoyed it very much. Stayed at the non air conditioned over the water bungalows and the air conditioned ones that are more on the back. The over the water experience is better. The scuba diving is not as good as Rabaul and Kavieng. I was told it is a seasonal effect, I am not so sure... More

I knew this place from my colleague, the last day of January 2015 I had the chance to visit this. If you are coming from abroad just book, let them know your itinerary then they will pick you up from the airport whatever time is then drive you to get the boat to the island. Vice versa if you flight... More
