Spent a long weekend here which was just the right amount of time to experience the region. Glorious location just a short flight from Port Moresby. Trip to the waterfall was good fun, and the Sunday Beach BBQ was tremendous!

We had a wonderful long weekend at Tufi resort in August. The weather was perfect and Thomas and Janna were wonderful hosts. My wife, 3-year old and I enjoyed a waterfall tour, snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, a beach BBQ and some much needed R&R. Highly recommended… we will be back.

I recently had a truly magical stay at Tufi... we were quietly willing for the flight to be cancelled so we "had to" stay that little bit longer! Jana and Thomas were exceptional hosts, they were so friendly & warm and delightful people to spend time with. Nothing was an effort, the staff were so wonderfully helpful.... it is in the nature of Papua New Guineans to be beautifully warm & always helpful but it was obvious that the staff were well respected, cared about their community and enjoyed being part of the team (something that for me is more important than any in PNG). The resort is well laid and had lovely amenities. I stayed in a lovely deluxe room, the view in the mornings wont be forgotten any time soon. The activities that the team arranged for us were just fantastic...I hadn't dived in a good while though felt extremely comfortable exploring the reef with Jana, she is an incredibly calm & reassuring dive instructor. The evening boat trip & adventures to to find dive spots were amazing though I think the highlight was enjoying the peacefulness of Oro. It is such a remarkable part of the world, one that I hope I can get back to at some point again.

I loved our recent stay at Tufi for so many reasons. The location is quick and easy to get to from Port Moresby, the resort was relaxing and well maintained, the views are unparalleled and we were so well looked after. My highlights include: 1. As a mother who makes what feels like a million menial decisions a day, I appreciate that the resort takes many off my hands. Fill out the food preference form upon arrival and for the rest of your stay you just have to wait until the meal bell is rung and you are fed. My kids didn't even complain about meals as there was no choice. Perfect! 2. As flights only come in and out twice a week (Friday and Monday) there is a rythem to the resort. Different tours are offered on different days and the only thought you need to put into it is if you are going or not! No need to walk the dog on what do we want to do, when do we want to do it, how will that affect other things etc. Just yes or no! i highly recommend the Waterfall Trip and the Beach BBQ. 3. When they say kids are free- they mean it. This includes tours and trips. My son even asked to fish on the Waterfall Tour and Thomas made sure there were rods on the boat. We reeled in a tuna and a mackerel on the way home! 4. The surrounding community is absolutely safe to explore due to a clever cash free system the resort has developed. Any transactions at the local markets are done by writing your name down- this is then taken to the resort where you settle your bill at the end of your stay. As it is known that guests do not carry valuables, there are no opportunists which makes the beautiful village safe and pleasant to explore. 5. The kids loved the little details like the nightly bonfire. The fact that the resort follows a predictable schedule is great for kids also- they know what to expect. The only thing that I regret about going to Tufi is that we didn't stay longer. Three nights was great, but i could have easily filled a week. Jana and Thomas's catch phrase seems to be "Anything is possible- you just have to ask". It is a region made for exploring- go and see for yourselves!
