NUSA Island Retreat has the best food in town! Their dinner buffet spread is always delicious with an emphasis on seafood (my favourite are the oysters!) and their salads are always crispy fresh (a fav as well!) You can tell that a lot of heart...More

Had a great time at this restaurant. The food was fresh and well prepared. The seafood buffet is amazing. The staff were very nice and professional. Nothing like a nice cold beer on an island retreat!

A hidden gem in New Guinea. Forget the Mentawais, Bali or South Pacific, this is the next frontier with first class amenities, surfing, fishing and diving. People are wonderful. Great music. Can't wait to go back.

Great food, accommodation and Kurt and the team will really look after you. I recommend Nusa highly if you want to get away and enjoy uncrowded waves in real comfort.

While the food was just average - rather dry fish cakes, the location is excellent. A swim in the lagoon was like a hot bath, but nice to get out. Interesting walk around the island is well worthwhile

Whether staying here as a guest or visiting for lunch or dinner, the response we generally get from customers is that we deliver some of the best food they've tasted in Papua New Guinea. It is assumed that we have an international head chef behind the scenes, however this is not the case. All food is prepared by local staff who have years of experience. We use fresh, local produce in the majority of our meals, and offer a variety of dishes. Breakfast and lunch options are à la carte, offering a wide range of dishes. Dinner is a buffet, starting with soup and followed by fresh seafood, meats, poultry, salad and vegetables. And of course, yummy dessert! Nusa Island's bar provides the coldest beers in town, international wines, an assortment of local and international spirits, as well as creative cocktails. Children are covered as we offer a variety of drinks and snacks for the little ones. Bookings for dinner for non in-house guests must be made prior to 2pm that day.
