Wonderful Walindi

 Walindi Plantation Resort lies on the shores of Kimbe Bay in West New Britain province, Papua New Guinea. 

The surrounding gardens are lush, tropical and give the visitor a feeling of tranquillity, relaxation and appreciation of nature.

Established since 1983, Walindi celebrated 25 years of operation in 2008.

The resort accommodation has 12 beachfront bungalows plus four ensuited plantation rooms, a large central area for meals, recreation, bar facilities, air conditioned library, media room, boutique and pool.

The main emphasis of the Resort is on diving and snorkelling.

A recent coral count of Kimbe Bay revealed an incredible 413 species of hard corals.

This is over half the total world species (799) in one Bay, a truly remarkable statistic which makes Kimbe Bay the “Coral Capital of the World”.

Comfortable boats carrying guests operate out of the Walindi Dive Centre to visit reefs for scuba diving, snorkelling and bird watching in the Bay on a daily basis.

The extraordinary underwater beauty of Kimbe Bay has lead to many prestigious international prizes for photography.

Over the last 18 years, marine images from Kimbe Bay have won prizes on 10 occasions at the Festival Mondial de L’image Sous-Marine, Antibes, France, considered the world championship of underwater photography.

These successes have helped establish Papua New Guinea’s international reputation as one of the greatest dive destinations in the world.

mv Stardancer (16 passengers) and mv Febrina (12 passengers) operate out of Walindi Plantation Resort on 7 to 10 day charters throughout the year.

They visit the Witu Islands  off shore to extend the diving adventure and the Father’s reef systems on the north coast of West New Britain.

Visits and packages are available through your nearest Air Niugini sales outlet or contact Walindi Plantation Resort direct on telephone (675) 9835441, fax (675) 9835638 or e-mail
