We were looking for a Christmas break away from Port Moresby and found it at Tawali! Alotau (Gurney) is a short flight from POM, and were met by the bus for a 90 minute shuttle to a small dock where the Tawali boat was waiting to take us to the resort 15 minutes away. Lunch on arrival, shown to our room then were snorkelling on the (excellent) house reef by 2pm!
We were there for 3 days - saw the skull caves and nearby waterfall, went on a day trip to a nearby island, another snorkelling morning - had a great time! Food was also plentiful and tasty and all staff warm and welcoming. Highly recommended!
Enjoyed the peaceful environment. Was met at the main wharf by the Resort Manager and a staff who assisted us to the resort's reception where we were given drinks and given a visual tour of the resort. The room was spacious with very comfortable beds. The views of the reef around the resort are just magnificent! I could look at that view all day! Tried out the pool although it would need more TLC cleaning-wise. However, would love to visit Tawali Resort again to go on hikes and cave visits.
Very Nice resort with great snorkeling right in front of the swimming pool, the tour to the coral garden is amazing! Skull caves were very interesting, restaurant serves very good food,
Nice clean rooms with good bedding, and all the necessary things.
The road from the airport is brand new so a easy drive to the resort!
And at least very friendly people!! The only thing I would recommend is to book thruh booking.com, room with full board, I paid way to much! If you book only the room , you have to pay for the food and that’s really too expensive!
I visited Tawali with friends for a diving snorkelling trip. This place is simply amazing. I have never felt so far away from my day to day working life. I arrived at about 1 pm. Did my first snorkel at 3 pm and then a night dive at 6. Next two days I did 3 snorkels per day. Wow it was heaven on earth . Bed room superb with great views and then great food and a good bar . Exactly the break I hoped for plays 100%.
For diving and sleeping is this a very good resort. Albert was my dive guide and he is a really good dive guide. I saw many big and small sizes. The mix is nice.
Only the bird guides were very sad Gilbert knows nothing about birds and Michael may be 1%. The food was good, but expensive.
The room was absolute clean and we felt save during our stay.
We think about to come again to this resort
