Tawali Resort - Covered walkways link the main reception and dining areas with the 14 rooms themselves, which are huge. Two Queen size beds, air conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, fridge, a well-appointed modern bathroom, and what may be the ultimate private balcony.
Overlooking the bay of reef-fringed, deep blue water, and framed by stands of tall tropical trees and the occasional fruit tree, is an outdoor setting that begs to be used to read, sip afternoon post-dive drinks or watch the resident pod of dolphins that seem to visit the bay every day.
Tawali is located in a secluded area of Milne Bay amongst local fishing villages and accessible only by boat. Built on a limestone bluff eighty feet above the water, Tawali offers guests a private retreat in which to enjoy the wonders of PNG. Local craftsmen constructed Tawali and you will find beautifully carved totems and woodwork in the spacious main lodge and throughout the resort. Some of these works of art took two years to complete and are unique to the Milne Bay culture. Covered walkways connect guest bungalows, which are complete with private balconies overlooking Hoia Bay. The air-conditioned bungalows are spacious with two queen beds and rosewood interiors that include desks, closets and lounge areas. Each room has a personal safe and coffee making facilities. Bathrooms are modern, completely tiled and have solar heated water.
