Loloata offers the unique qualities of convenience and natural beauty. The resort island is only 15 minutes from the international airport in Port Moresby, but you'll feel like you're a world away on this beautiful Melanesian garden isle. 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.

Access to Loloata Island Resort: Port Moresby (Jacksons International Airport) is the nearest airport. Getting to the Island involves a 15 minute car ride from the airport followed bya a 10 minute boat ride on one of the Loloata Island Resort private ferries / water taxis. Airport transfers and pickups from Motels/Hotels in Port Moresby can be booked by telephoning the Resort.

BRIEF HISTORY The name Loloata is made from two Motu words, "loloa" and "ta" which mean "hill" and "one." So literally the name means "one hill." 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.
