Situated on a small, private island, Lissenung Island Resort offers accommodation in a picturesque setting surrounded by palm trees and sandy beaches.
With just four bungalows, which are spread out across the island, the resort provides guests with plenty of privacy, and due to the small size of the island, all of the rooms boast ocean-front views. Three of the bungalows house two en suite rooms, while the fourth has just one room with shared facilities situated approximately 20 metres away.
The bungalows have been built in a traditional style to blend into their surroundings, and are made from woven bamboo, thatched sago palm leaves and corrugated iron to collect rainwater. All rooms feature mosquito nets, a ceiling fan, a large desk and a wardrobe. The windows don’t have glass, but are fitted with a fly screen allowing the breeze to cool the rooms. There is 24-hour electricity at the lodge, with a number of power points in each of the bungalows ensuring that batteries can be recharged at all times. All rooms are serviced daily and all linen and towels (room and boat) are provided.
The main house, or “haus win” offers a comfortable bar and dining area where cold drinks and delicious meals can be enjoyed. Beer, wine and soft drinks are available at the resort, but we recommend that you bring your own alcoholic beverages such as duty free spirits, as they are often unavailable in Papua New Guinea, and when they are, they are very expensive.
The resort is known for its pelagic fish action and is a popular resort for snorkelling, diving and surfing. The island also has a house reef where you can see around 350 different species of fish and on night dives, you can also look for a diversity molluscs and crustaceans. Between the months of December to April, hawksbill and green turtles visit the island to lay their eggs.
