Walindi Resort is situated on the shores of Kimbe Bay, WNB.
The Plantation that surrounds Walindi was originally established in 1935. The old Plantation was purchased by the current owners Max and Cecilie Benjamin in 1969 and replanted with Oil Palm. In 1983 Walindi Plantation Resort was born out of the interest of visiting local and overseas scuba divers who recognized the incredible quality of diving this area has to offer. Since this time, Walindi has become world famous for its quality of diving, international prize winning photography, and hospitality.
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.
There is also the Plantation Lodge, offering 4 rooms with bathrooms, available as single, twin, or double rooms.
The central resort area consists of dining room, lounge, bar area, swimming pool, sun deck, boutique and administration offices. The dining room offers three meals daily (included in the tariff). Fare is Western and Asian style buffet meals, delicious and plentiful, featuring local seafood, meats, poultry, fruits and vegetables. Meals are at set times. Special dietary requests will be accommodated wherever possible, just let the Manageress know of your needs. Fruits and vegetables are locally and organically grown. There is a wide selection of traditionally grown greens as part of the menu.
There is a large reference library encompassing marine life and photography books, local terrestrial life and history information as well as a small fiction selection.
