Resort Description

Walindi Plantation Resort is located on the shores of Kimbe Bay on New Britain Island, Papua New Guinea. 

This remote region offers some of the world's healthiest coral and a huge diversity of marine life. Look out for large gorgonian fans, scalloped hammerhead sharks, dogtooth tuna, elephant ear sponges, unicorn fish and many more reef fish and macro creatures. 

The resort is set on the water's edge, nestled into the dense rainforest. Wooden bungalows and plantation house rooms are complete with verandas and traditionally designed furnishings. 

The open-sided restaurant serves fresh, local produce for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy an evening drink at Planter's Bar overlooking the waves. 

The resort boasts a swimming pool and sun deck, plus a lounge and library with TV and marine, historical and photography books. Walking, birdwatching, snorkelling and swimming are popular activities.
