|Welcome To Loloata Island|
Your Place In New Guinea
Loloata and its surrounding reefs and islands are the perfect nature study and are regularly visited by botanists, marine biologists and others with a special interest in our flora, fauna and rarer marine species.
A Brief History
The main house was built as a private residence in the early 60's and, at one stage, chicken farming was attempted.
In 1970, Loloata was established as a weekend resort, and in 1978 was run as a licensed full-time resort catering to holiday makers, diving and water enthusiasts and a wide range of government and private enterprise conference groups.
A Divers World
And for the initiated, Loloata's world class scuba services offer adventurous wreck dives throughout Bootless Bay, night dives and superb diving excursions to nearby Horshoe Reef Marine Park.
Loloata's dive operation operates two dive boats. "Dive Loloata" is a purpose-built 9 meter aluminium monohull, designed to cater for ten divers and three crew. "Dive Loloata" features a cruise speed of 20 knots, comfortable seating and tank racks, hot shower, camera rinsing facilities and dual re-entry ladders. GPS, depth sounder, plotter and radios complete the navigation equipment. "Dive Loloata" operates to more than 30 moored dive sites all within 10 to 30 minutes of the resort. The second boat is a 7 meter fiberglass banana boat powered by a diesel outboard, able to carry 5 divers plus crew at 15 knots.
Of course, for those who prefer their activities well and truly beached, you could power your way through a game of volleyball, work up a thirst over a game of deck tennis or table tennis for one of our famous Bootless Bay Thirst Quenchers, or challenge your friends to a good old fashioned game of darts.
However, when you're left feeling physically exhausted and in need of more cerebral pursuits, it's comforting to know that playing cards are available together with a variety of board games and an interesting library of videos on Papua New Guinea.
Early morning and late afternoon are also ideal times to go bushwalking or stroll along the beach and foreshore. It is possible to course the whole island in about an hour.
True Melanesian Hospitality And Traditional Flavours
Even dining on Loloata is a more relaxed a la natural event offering a selection of international cuisine superbly influenced by more traditional flavours. This is followed by a desert, an abundance of freshly roasted Highland Coffee, which is also complimentary any time of the day or night.
Special diets and vegetarian dishes can be accommodated with advance notice. Children's meals can also be served earlier if adults wish to dine alone.
