Tawali is in a beautiful location and the surrounding coastline, rainforest and reefs superb. The staff are really friendly but sadly they lack the training to provide the service deserved! Lunches were excellent with an on board meal and picnic lunch on an island being

Food is expensive - bring your own if you can, but don't expect to find a kettle in your room (or iron or ironing board). Rooms are spartan and beds uncomfortable. Other guests experienced bed bugs. Room lighting is harsh fluorescent. The coral reef diving within 1 minute if

If you're looking for a remote resort with spectacular diving, but don't want to give up your creature comforts like air con, good food and a comfortable bed, this place is for you. Its a bit of a hike to get to after you arrive at Alotau, but that's part of the adventure and

This place was very mixed for me. The diving was absolutely fantastic. Easy diving, fantastic weather, saw too many things to list. The beds were way to hard. You are on an island so you are at their mercy for food. I think it is more of a sourcing issue than the chef.

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."
