hi i want to write a review praising this little island and the owners and the staff, i travelled alone and was a bit nervious landing at the Kavieng Airport as it was dark. Once i cleared the gate i met the most wonderful girl Nozaki who took me to the van and met the other couples going to the island.
After a short bus ride we arrived at the harbour and the boat crew helped with the bags and we were given rain coats as it was a bit choppy, When we reached the island we were met by the nicest couple Ange and Dietmar who made me feel so welcome and then i got to my own little hut, what a setup it was so nice with the best setout and the deck had the most amazing view.
We then went for dinner at the best resturant i have ever eaten at, the food was cooked well and so fresh and after a few beers i knew all the guests and we all chatted for hours. The morning was stunning with views of the island and a very nice breakfast with the very friendly and shy kitchen girls who keep the area so clean. The diving was outstanding with vis and locations and the dive master Angmai new i was an experienced diver so he dived with the group and kept a close watch but let us dive the dive we wanted to do, he pointed out heaps of things local to the sites.
All the staff were aa credit and one of my fondest memories would be the night security guys would call out hello Mr George when i was on my deck having a beer.
loved the place and will be back and made friends with every guest and had the best new year.
The level of care shone thru even after we left as there was a mixup at the airport but when Ange found out about this she brought us in fresh cold water and sat with us till it was all sorted out
