Lissenung Island Resort prides itself on supporting the local communities. We purchase the vast majority of our produce for meals at the local markets or from the locals directly. Almost daily, fishermen and other neighbours paddle over in their dugout canoes to sell us their wares. This ensures that the seafood and fruits are as fresh as possible. We also grow some veggies ourselves, but on a small sand island, the choices are a little limited.    

We also pay reef fees to various communities, which goes towards the upkeep of communal facilities such as schools, aid posts, building supplies etc.

All our staff live on Enuk Island, which is the closest island to Lissenung and “our” community. A visit can be organised to have a look at the school and for a stroll through the village. It’s only a 5-minute boat ride away and the whole trip usually takes approx. 1.5 hours. A small fee of PGK 35.00 per person is charged and goes toward the upkeep of the school, which doesn’t get much government funding. Schoolbooks, tables, chairs and other material is purchased with this money. Feel free to bring along exercise books, pencils, cheap tennis balls and swimming goggles. These things are always a great hit with the kids!

The four bungalows are spread out over the island, giving guests plenty of privacy. Three of the bungalows house two rooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. The last bungalow is a one-room bungalow and uses the share facilities, which are located approx. 20m away. As the island is only 400 x 100m (450 x 110yd), all bungalows are  ocean-front.

Meals are an important part of your experience at Lissenung Island Resort. Our cooks prepare local and international meals, often combining the two and with that, creating innovative dishes unique to Lissenung Island Resort.

Located just 2 degrees south of the Equator, the small and very private island is covered in lush tropical plants and flowers. For the decoration of the tables and ceremony area we use local flowers and traditional bilas, made by the local ladies from the neighbouring island.

Your wedding banquet can be as simple or as exclusive as you wish. Local produce such as fresh lobster, mud crabs, fish, vegetables and fruits can be served either buffet-style or as a 3-course menu. You can chose one of our suggested menus or provide your own. Just one thing to be aware of is the fact that PNG is still a developing country and some of the ingredients used in our meals are imported. Sometimes, that doesn’t happen without hiccups, so there may be some limitations to your menu requests. The sooner you advise us of your wishes, the sooner we can start sourcing what is required.

The hotel offers a snack bar/deli. A bar/lounge is on site where guests can unwind with a drink. Guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast. An Internet point is located on site and high-speed wireless Internet access is complimentary.

Lissenung is the type of place you want to go to if you enjoy kicking off your shoes and not putting them back on again until you leave. My partner and I stayed there from July 22-25, 2017. We...More

The four bungalows are spread out over the island, giving guests plenty of privacy. Three of the bungalows house two rooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. The last bungalow is a one-room bungalow and uses the share facilities, which are located approx. 20m away. As the island is only 400 x 100m (450 x 110yd), all bungalows are  ocean-front.

The bungalows are built in traditional style and blend into their surroundings. The walls are made from woven bamboo, one side of the roof is thatched (Sago Palm leaves), the other side has corrogated iron to collect the rainwater we use for all our water supply. The roof collects the water and feeds it into a big watertank, from where it is pumped up to the roof’s header-tank.

The windows don’t have glass, but are fitted with flyscreen to keep little creepy crawlies out, and let the beautiful breeze in. This ensures that no air-conditioning is necessary. All bungalows also have a big verandah with comfortable chairs to relax in after diving.

Meals are served in the “Haus Win”, the big main house, which was designed to let nature in. It features a sandy floor, handcrafted furniture, comfortable lounges and is beautifully decorated with masks and other local artwork, giving it a typical PNG atmosphere.

Lissenung Island Resort generally has a Catch & Release policy, but we are more than happy for you to bring dinner back to the island where our cooks turn the fish into yummy meals.
