Lissenung Island Resort - been in the last year?

Hi. Has anyone stayed at Lissenung Island resort in the last year since the attack happened in Jan 2023?

I realise bad things happen all over the world but am concerned due to how isolated you are there with only a few guests and easily accessible rooms.

Those that have stayed there… did you feel safe? Do you know if the resort has changed anything ie hired security, since the attack? Potentially a group of 20 year olds going there on a dive trip with some concerned parents 😊

there are a couple of recent reviews

i would ask on some diving forums for more info

we went to Lissenung 10 years ago - we felt safe and the diving is spectacular

that said this is PNG and probably all the dive resorts have been raided by raskols in the last few years but these are isolated incidents rather than a constant problem and for the vast majority of visitors they have a great time

if you want diving in PNG in a safer easier place then consider Loloata
