Walindi Plantation Resort


In 1983 Walindi Plantation Resort was born from the interest of visiting local and overseas scuba divers who recognized the incredible diving in this area. Since then it has been visited by some of the worlds most renowned divers and underwater photographers.

Above water, fern draped bungalows nestle amongst the rainforest and along the beach front. . Catering to a maximum of twenty-four guests means you receive the undivided attention you deserve, yet the freedom to feel every dive has been made for you alone. Good company, great food, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere provide a perfect background while you enjoy the delights of Kimbe Bay diving.


Walindi`s accommodation consists of 12 self contained, comfortable bure style bungalows spread along the beach front, and surrounded by rainforest gardens. The bungalows are constructed of local materials and timbers, with thatched roofs. They are all fully screened, with private bathroom, a kitchenette with tea and coffee making facilities, and ceiling fans. Laundry service daily is included in the tariff.

The central resort area consists of a dining room, lounge and bar area, swimming pool and sun deck, and administration offices. The dining room offers three meals daily (included in the tariff), and fare is Western and Asian style buffet meals, delicious and plentiful, featuring local seafoods, fruits and vegetables. Meals are at set times .... special dietary requests will be accommodated wherever possible, just let the Managers know of your needs.

There is a large reference library, encompassing marine life and photography books, local terrestrial life and history information, and a small fiction selection.

The bar is fully stocked, and open most of the day.

Airport transfers are available in the resort`s airconditioned mini-buses. The airport is 60km from the resort (a 60 minute drive, and a chance to see the surrounding area).


Walindi Diving has three day dive boats operating from the resort daily. The newest vessel is "Charmaine". 30 feet in length, she is an aluminium purpose built dive boat fitted with GPS and fresh water tanks. "Emma" and "Dilemma" are a little smaller, of a similar design. The boats take 6-8 divers each, and diving is on the many beautiful Walindi Reefs in Kimbe Bay. Most of the reefs are a photographer`s paradise, all of them have an incredible array of marine life, from the smallest to the largest creatures and corals. Inglis Shoal and Kimbe Island Bommie are sea mounts, and attract the larger fish and sharks, as does North Emma Reef.

Generally, divers will head out for two dives, leaving 9:00ish and returning 4:00ish, with lunch provided on one of the deserted islands nearby. On request, three dives per day may be organised, subject to boat availability, and night dives can also be arranged with the Dive Manager.

Walindi Photo provides photography instruction, E6 processing, all types of camera rentals, video services and more.
