Lissenung Island Resort

Papua New Guinea – Kavieng

Information

Imagine a small, private, tropical island with a white sandy beach, tall palm trees and magnificent sunsets surrounded by some of the world’s best coral reefs. This is the picturesque hideaway that is Lisseunung Island, located just a 20-minute boat ride from Kavieng, the capital of New Ireland Province.

Other than a handful of local staff, you won’t see another soul, and can easily circumnavigate the island in 10 – 15 minutes. Lissenung Island Resort opened in 1996 and remains all there is on the island. Eight ocean-front rooms housed in four duplex bungalows, furnished with hardwood floors and spacious verandahs, are spread out over the island. The bungalows are fully screened, have ceiling fans, mosquito nets and offer comfortable patio seating areas.

There is 24 hour electricity supply, with hot water on demand. Most rooms come with an ensuite bathroom. The main house, or “haus win”, offers comfortable chairs on a sandy floor and it is here where cold drinks and delicious meals await you. Fresh seafood such as fish, crabs and lobster (crayfish) feature high on a daily-changing menu. Beer and wine are available at the resort, but feel free to bring spirits from the duty-free store as they are often unavailable in Papua New Guinea. The eco-friendly buildings are all built in the traditional style, with thatched roofs and walls made from woven bamboo, blending seamlessly in with their surroundings. Local artefacts complete the picture and give the buildings a great Papua New Guinea atmosphere.

Lissenung Island Resort is a dedicated dive resort with it’s own fully equipped dive centre and dive boats offering up to 3 boat dives a day plus complimentary shore dives on the fabulous house reef. Diving in the Kavieng area has it all: pelagic fish and shark action, currents, wall and muck diving, wrecks and beautiful reefs. Lissenung caters for guests 12 years and over.
