Did not make it to Nalauwaki village unfortunately. The stay at Octopus resort was great as were the activities we participated in, Scuba diving, Snorkelling, and School visit. Wish that we could have done more. We arrived by sea plane and that was a much shorter journey than boat transfer. Both means of transport were great with their own pros and cons. The communal sand floor restaurant was great. You mix and mingle with other guests. I have been in the hospitality trade for 12 years and the food was fabulous with local fare and classic meals alike! The meals would not be out of place in your local high street. We had bungalow accomodation with shared bath facilities which were very good. A fantastic place to stay if you are not to precious while still making you feel so welcome. Other resorts are more costly i believe and others closer to the mainland more frequented and party island styles. I highly recommend Octopus resort for a week away in paradise(or more if possible) We will definitely be returning to Octopus resort.
