The location of the resort is in an absolute paradise. Very beautiful, very tranquil. There are a lot of amazing activities to do while there, and my tour guide was great. The resort is nice, and the staff are friendly. The only problem was the female manager. She demanded that I pay for the accommodation, even though I had already paid online at the time of booking with lastminute.com. I showed my receipts for payment and she still demanded that I pay “in cash” for the room. Since the credit card machine wasn’t working I paid for my tours by bank transfer (so there was a record of payment) but refused to pay again for accommodation. The female manager was rude and unprofessional. Beware of her trying to charge again.

We stayed for three nights, primarily for diving. The resort is in a remote location on the beautiful East Cape of Milne Bay. It was an easy journey from the airport to the boat (approximately one hour) through picturesque villages by the coast. The boat ride to Tawali is approximately 15-20 minutes. All the resort staff were very welcoming and made every effort to assist us during our stay. The dive master, Alfred, is very knowledgeable and was great to dive with. Our visit to Hiliwau Village was also a highlight. It included a visit to a skull cave and waterfall. Highly recommended and am looking forward to our next visit.
