Our room was always clean and the Staff at the resort was very accommodating and friendly. The food each day was wonderful and again the Chef was very accommodating with all of my food allergies. The dive sites had great variation. We certainly appreciated the attentiveness

If you love snorkeling or diving then this is a must visit resort. It’s remote (2 hour drive through the jungle) and 30 minute boat ride to get there, but boy is it worth it. Lovely location, comfortable accommodations, terrific views, super friendly and helpful staff and dive

Yes, Tawali is primarily for Scuba diving. Generally doing 3 boat dives a day. There is availability for diving on the house reef and extra boat dives can be arranged.

Internet connection can be slow or non-existent. Meals are buffet, not a la carte with a couple of choices. Food is pretty good. There's nowhere else to eat, so definitely worth booking! Don't remember how much we paid for trips, but they were great - bird-watching our favourite.

Not sure exactly but probably around 10+ units. A wonderful remote paradise that is highly recommended.

Negatory. There's a really expensive laundry service - you could just about buy a new pair of undies for 4 kina! We hand washed in the bathroom and hung our washing on the veranda. No big deal.

"Rooms away from the restaurant"
"Have a look at what alternatives are available before selecting your room. Especially check for hot water."
"If you do not dive, don't bother going as they really dont care about non divers or the trips for them."
"The lower the number the closer it is to the eating areas."
"We enjoyed room 14. Why? We like to be a bit further away from the main buildings. It was quiet and had a wonderful open view of the lagoon."
