ACCOMMODATIONS:

Covered walkways lead away from the main building and observation deck to guest bungalows which are all beautifully appointed. The five guest buildings are set around the top of a bluff overlooking the bay and forests.

Each building houses two rooms or bungalows and even though the rooms share a common wall, all bungalows are completely private even on the individual balconies.

Bungalows are very roomy with a lot of attention to detail in woodwork, including a rosewood desk area and closets. All bungalows have individual solar powered hot water and are air conditioned with beautiful bathrooms and private decks. At the most Tawali will accommodate twenty divers with ease, which makes your vacation a very intimate experience.

DIVING TAWALI

Milne Bay has long been considered to be the best of PNG diving with most divers returning time and time again because of the diversity of diving found here.

Our amazing Coastal Day Dives include the best Milne Bay muck diving as well as wonderful walls with an abundance of soft corals, large sea fans, anemones with clown fish and large pelagic, such as hammerheads and whale sharks. Trips are scheduled for mornings and afternoons with two dives per trip. Book both the morning and afternoon charter (4 dives) and get a free night dive. Diving on coastal sites is done from two 22-foot boats with twin 50 Honda engines with a maximum of six divers per boat.



Outer reef dives in Milne Bay offer divers a chance to dive on beautiful pinnacles with abundant and varied marine life as well as walls with anemones, sea fans, sharks and other large pelagics. All dives are within a 25 to 40 minute boat ride from Tawali and include three tank dives with lunch served on the boat or on nearby islands where guests can explore on their own. Outer reef diving is done from the comfort of a 37-foot Catamaran with a maximum of divers.

CULTURE OF MILNE BAY

Skull caves, bat caves, orchids, birds, and dugout canoes. Diving is really just part of the Tawali experience. Immerse yourself in the culture of Papua New Guinea by exploring all that Tawali has to offer.

Hiking Tawali

Take guided bush walks into the rainforest or walk along the coast through local villages. There is even an extended day hike across the mountain ridge rising behind the resort, where you can view the entire coastline and the dense rainforest canopy. Take a pair of binoculars to view the cockatoos, hornbills and parrots along the way.

Skull Caves
Skull caves are a mostly forgotten reminder of PNGs history. Usually discovered by villagers looking for new garden land many skull caves in PNG have yet to be discovered and have long been grown over by the forest. Start your hike at the base of a steep cliff over a shallow reef and with help of ropes and guides hike your way up into the rain forest learning about the different trees and plants along the way. Return again to the boats and enjoy a snack or go on to hike to a waterfall for a cool dip.

Waterfall Hike
Guides will take you on a forty minute hike up through the lush forest to beautiful waterfalls where guests can take a break for a snack and dip in the pool before heading down. Hikers will see village life, gardens, bird life and more.

DINING AT TAWALI

Papua New Guinea is very diverse in itís cuisine, from fresh barramundi cod cooked in a wrapping of banana leaves, boiled and roasted chestnuts and fresh fruit that would make any mouth water. Great care has been taken to make sure that the food is abundant and good. Local villagers have been taught the art of bread making and food presentation by several visiting chefs.

Our new chefs have been able to bring their own unique list of ingredients and recipes to the table at Tawali. Local farmers raise the fruits and vegetables served at Tawali and we take great pride in the freshness and variety of the foods we serve. Breads are fresh made as well as desserts and snacks and beverages are easily available.

Besides the beautiful main dining room guests are able to dine outside on the veranda overlooking the rainforest. The dining room features 18 foot carved totems, beautiful hand-crafted wood details and a spectacular wall containing a collection of rare bottles found on dives in Samurai Bay.

Three buffet style meals are served daily. Snacks, juices, coffee and tea throughout the day are included.

Canned sodas and alchoholic beverages are available for purchase at the Tawali bar.
