LO­CA­TION

East New Bri­tain is ideal for the ad­ven­tur­ous soul. Whether it’s climb­ing the ac­tive Mount Tavurvur vol­cano, or roam­ing through tun­nels dug out by World War 2 pris­on­ers of war, ac­tiv­i­ties at this des­ti­na­tion are filled with history and in­trigue. Nes­tled on the coast­line of Blanche Bay, KBB sits in the heart of Kokopo, about 40 min­utes from Rabaul. There’s a per­fect view of the vol­cano from KBB’s im­pres­sive restau­rant deck, as well as sweep­ing views of sur­round­ing is­lands.

the place

Guests at KBB grav­i­tate to­wards the open-air din­ing room (pic­tured) built in an au­then­tic tra­di­tional haus win style with a sago roof – it’s pretty much the cen­tre­piece of the re­sort. Spilling on to a tree-top deck with views across the bay, it’s a great place to re­lax. The self-con­tained stand-alone rooms make the re­sort pri­vate and cosy – it’s also fam­ily friendly with a se­cure pool and a pri­vate beach down the hill.

ROOMS

Each of the 39 suites has a sep­a­rate bed­room, lounge with din­ing area, kitch­enette and fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing wash­ing ma­chine. I stayed in an ex­ec­u­tive bun­ga­low, which was mod­ern and com­fort­able, and had a very good air con­di­tioner. The pri­vate bal­cony made the room feel more spa­cious, and was an­other se­cluded place to en­joy the views.

FOOD AND DRI NK

Food in the restau­rant is ex­cel­lent and there’s a large se­lec­tion of cui­sine, in­clud­ing Asian, Western and Me­lane­sian. It’s all pre­pared with fresh and lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, which gives the menu va­ri­ety. Room ser­vice is avail­able and the bar fridge is well stocked.
