The owner picked us up on his boat and it was great. When we got to the island, it was pleasantly clean and well looked after. The lunch was good and the day use chalet was acceptable standard for this country.

We caught our first glimpse of Loloata Island from the plane as we descended into Port Moresby. We had a pleasant 15 minute boat ride over to the island where we were greeted by friendly staff. Or cabin was located over the water's edge. Though quite basic it was clean and tidy. Housekeeping remade our room each day while we... More

Just returned home from a fantastic dive holiday at Loloata Island Resort. Perfect weather and varied diving - wrecks, reef and "muck", its all just a short boat trip from the resort. The dive staff are competent and friendly and delight in finding the unusual critters. The resort staff are lovely. Food was good and plentiful. Rooms were comfortable. All... More

Loloata is a great break from the heart of Port Moresby or for PNG travellers who want a break before travelling elsewhere. It is primarly geared to diving, so don't expect the comforts and luxury of a five star resort such as pool, bars and flat screen TVs. Much of the weekend clientele are expats living in PM or from...

Safe, beautiful, with excellent food and wine list. We didn't dive but spent 2 days here chilling out before entering Papua New Guinea proper. Fascinating range of people from all around the world visiting and great after dinner conversation as darkness falls. Rooms pretty basic but waterfront units with balcony over sea highly recommended for falling asleep to sound of... More

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.
