Alotau accommodation and ecotourism at its most genuine
Genuine village bungalow backpackers accommodation, in Alotau, the heart of Milne Bay Province!
If you are looking to spend your time in beautiful Alotau, Milne Bay in a more genuine local village and farm environment, you have come to the right place. Situated only 8km out of Alotau town, between the town and the airport (along Charles Abel Highway), is Bibiko Farm & Guesthouses Alotau accommodation. We would like to welcome you to stay at our farm, in the newly built bungalows or private roomed accommodation facilities. You can either eat local Alotau food each night with the family, included in the budget accommodation price, or cook your own food.
Perfect for backpackers accommodation, or for budget conscious families, as a base to explore the many sights of Alotau & Milne Bay!
The prices are far lower than any other place in Alotau, starting 60 PGK (approx A$30) per night*, including accommodation, village food and some activities - and we truly are able to offer you a genuine village experience. We can organise ecotourism trips with one of our adult sons (Julius or William) to visit our extended family (our wantok's) villages across Milne Bay province, which could involve amazing experiences such as hiking, snorkelling, fishing, and much more. So we'd invite you to stay on the website a while, have a look at the backpackers accommodation photos, and contact us for a booking if this seems like the right experience for you and your group!
