Great week of diving - make sure you ask for one of the bungalows! Food great, everyone was so nice and diving was exclusive and incredible! -+30m vis, 30c water temps. Eat - dive - eat - dive - drink - sleep! Perfect.

Rabaul is a very unique place with so much history, beautiful landscapes and wonderful people.
I greatly enjoyed the week I stayed at Kabaira hideaway with some excellent diving in PNG's tropical waters with the sound and unspoilt reefs and its marvellous biodiversity.
Also my first wreck dives were a lovely experience! There are plenty of ship- and aircraft wrecks to explore in Rabaul with its interesting WWI & II history, being one of the major battlefields in the Pacific at the time.
Kabaira Hideaway and dive center is a small family operation, simple but truly unique with a touch of love and wonderful staff who treat you according to your individual needs and wishes.
Thanks to all, who made my stay an unforgettable experience.
Thanks Steve, Marsha, Lynn, Bert, Lloyd, Vini, Paul, Linda, Helen....and all the rest of the staff!

This resort is not for the five-dive per day, nitrox-charged dive afficionado. It's for the wandering diver who wants a travel experience as well as a look under the Bismark Sea. A family-run operation that combines culture, history, home-cooked food and the fascinating venue of Rabaul, with its smoldering volcanoes, WW II relics and amazing devastation.

We have stayed at Kabaira for 11 days and every one of them was great. Everyday diving, touring, fishing or just relaxing; everything is possible at this beautiful and pure place where nature comes first. The owners Steven and Marscha help with everything you would like to do and make every tour you do a special one; Lloyd was our tour guide for most of the time and he did a great job. They prepare a great breakfast, lunch and dinner - with thanks to Helen and Linda all the other helps - which was different everyday. The accommodation is basic but clean and we loved the fresh flowers in our room everyday. Also very useful was the free laundry service everyday. Special thanks to our dinner companions, Lynn and Bert, who had dinner with us everyday telling so much about PNG. This is a place that you will remember for life and want to come back to.

We arrived on a cruise ship for the day. Bert took us on a land tour of the area around Rabaul. Having been on many 'cruise tours', I must say that this was the BEST.
