I love how homely this lodge is. I love how friendly the staff are and the food always feels like a home cooked meal. The architecture is traditional, which is perhaps what makes this place unique amongst Alotau. Definitely a lodge worth visiting!

Good security , We stayed in a large bungalow, although there is no air conditioning in this Bungalow , it was comfortable enough to sleep with the ceiling fan. The restaurant served a small menu , excellent quality, chicken stir fry, burgers, and the fish and chips were great. Beautiful garden surrounds, easy walk into town , or take a taxis, 5 Kina oneway.

Flew into Alotau and stayed at Napatana Lodge after doing Kokoda. Exhausted and smelly we were looked after admirably with a decent menu, bar, laundry services and general amenities. Staff were very helpful in providing advice about our time in Milne Bay and recommendations for our overnight trip were excellent.

There are only a few places to stay in Milne Bay, which is old name for what is now Alotau, and Napatana Lodge is terrific, in my view. Lovely restaurant and bar, close to town, friendly owners and staff, and a good location. Plus the price is right. It's between the airport and Alotau center, and close to some of the war memorials. Catch the mini-van bus from the airport, if you want to save some $$$. Enjoy a beer on the deck.

Stayed here twice whilst transiting to and from East Cape and beyond. Comfortable clean room and loved the restaurant which is open air rather than locked behind glass with excellent food and really well priced. This is now my "go to" place for my many future trips to and from Alotau. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. I like this place.
