Been to Ange and Dietmar's place twice, at two different seasons spanning a few years and have seen different things on both visits. A world away from the other diving "resorts" in PNG...not even going to mention the other ones as they don't come close to this one. Yes, you can see different things under the water in those other... More

Thank you so much for your awesome comments, guys! However, I have to say the other resorts in PNG are also very nice. You are absolutely right though, we don't do fussy and over the top, but relaxed and familiar. That tends to try to make our guests wishes happen a lot easier, we all have a lot more fun... More

This was the most relaxing two days of my 8 months in PNG. The food was great, the company entertaining and the island was a wonderful haven of peace and tranquility. The snorkeling was amazing - I have never seen so many different shapes and sizes of fish and the divers all seemed to be having a good time. We... More

Lisa, many thanks for your lovely comments. We loved having you and Elles, and I'm sorry there were no turtle eggs to be found the day we went to Ral Island. But hopefully, we'll see you back again one day soon! Take care, and have fun in Port Moresby! More

What more can be said about this lovely place… Liz and I spent 10 wonderful days here, 4 of which we were the only guests. I could not think of a better way of escaping the craziness of Port Moresby.

The LISSENUNG Island Resort was our third lodging during our journey through Papua New Guinea. From Port Moresby with a short stopover at Rabaul we landed at Kavieng after 2.5 hours flight time. The feisty Nozaki was already waiting for us and after a 10-minute-ride by car we arrived at the boat bridge. From there we reached the LISSENUNG Island... More

My husband and I had an AMAZING 10 days on Lissenung Island! It is a tiny island that you can work around in half an hour on low tide. The snorkelling and diving right off the island is world class!!

An exceptional team in an exceptional place! We stayed for a very relaxing week with some outings to close attractions. We were well cared for by the lovely staff and felt included socially which was very nice. As with most remote resorts the ample power system is provided by a 24hr generator which can detract from the tranquillity but this... More

Lissenung is a lovely island with a wonderfully healthy reef and excellent biodiversity. Snorkeling around the island we saw great biodiversity, amongst the best I have seen in the Pacific. Food was excellent, many thanks for a lovely stay

We have been to Lissenung on many occasions! The Diving is the best, the service is the best, the Island is pristine and private. Your Hosts Ange and Dietmar are great. Home reef is sensational for a quiet dive or snorkel.
