Accommodation at Lissenung
The four bungalows are spread out over the island, giving guests plenty of privacy. Three of the bungalows house two rooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. The last bungalow is a one-room bungalow and uses the share facilities, which are located approx. 20m away. As the island is only 400 x 100m (450 x 110yd), all bungalows are ocean-front.
The bungalows are built in traditional style and blend into their surroundings. The walls are made from woven bamboo, one side of the roof is thatched (Sago Palm leaves), the other side has corrogated iron to collect the rainwater we use for all our water supply. The roof collects the water and feeds it into a big watertank, from where it is pumped up to the roof’s header-tank.
Although the shower water is not heated, the warm environment (28° Celsius/83F) usually ensures a pleasant water temperature.
The rooms are fitted with a mosquito net over the bed, a ceiling fan, a large desk and a wardrobe. The windows don’t have glass, but are fitted with flyscreen to keep little creepy crawlies out, and let the beautiful breeze in. This ensures that no air-conditioning is necessary. All bungalows also have a big verandah with comfortable chairs to relax in after diving.
The big desk in front of the window is ideal for photographers, giving them plenty of natural light to work by and ensure that all camera gear is ready for the next dive. There are a number of powerpoints (240V, Australian socket) in each room and together with 24-hour electricity, the ensure that batteries can be recharged at all times.
The rooms are serviced daily and all linen and towels (room and boat) are provided.
