Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles and ice cold coconuts outfitted with paper straws. I can’t remember ever drinking anything that good. The people were so welcoming and several friendly and extremely polite dogs made us feel like we were home. The resort is situated on a peaceful beach with island views. Our cabin was roomy and cool. We didn’t need the AC because we were so close to the beach. We were only able to stay one night because we were leaving on the diving liveaboard MV Oceania the next day. The restaurant is amazing for such a remote location. My husband is a foodie and loved the lamb shanks and I was thrilled with the lobster. I have read another reviewer complain about the resorts dogs "begging" in the restaurant. I found that to be curious. "Lucky” and his doggy family are extremely well mannered and the sweetest pups you could ever meet. They DO NOT BEG. We loved having them hang around share their joy of life. If anything they are a reason to come back to this wonderful place. We loved talking with the manager, Marcus. The entire staff were so kind and thoughtful. I look forward to our next visit…
A great place to relax with great food and watch the sun sink down with friendly and efficient staff to attend to your requests. A real touch of Paradise in a world being depleted of this type of setting.
I really wish they would not have the dogs in the restaurant. While we are eating they came and begged for food. We come back because it is a nice place and good food. Nice bungelows also but we did not stay there this trip
An incredibly charming resort with pebbled paths, arches along the walkways, and trailing greenery. The bungalows are delightful with their seafaring decor and timber decking, and it is easy to while away several hours sitting on the deck reading. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our meals were fresh and delicious. We were only there for one night but thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I like driftwood because of the settings and great view looking out into the bay. The staff are friendly & welcoming. It is also quiet & away from the main centre. You can ask reception to call a cab for you or jump on when they do a run into town. Alotau is a beautiful little town with easygoing people. Unfortunately, people from other provinces have given the place a bad name, not the Milne bay people. Eating over the wooden jetty gives you and exotic feeling. The type of feeling one is after when going on a holiday to s undeveloped country. You certainly won't get the silver spoon service here, but than, that's why you choose PNG, 'the land of the unexpected" so expect the unexpected.
