Sanaroa Island in Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea is a beautiful tropical island surrounded by 5 uninhabited small islands, pristine coral reefs and mixture of white sandy beaches, limestone cliffs, and white sandy beaches. It is located a few hours by speed boat to the provincial capital of Alotau which has an international airport with direct flights from Australia as well as other countries (Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Singapore, Japan, etc) via connecting flights from Port Moresby, the nation's capital. 

The island itself is hilly on the north eastern side and covered by tropical rainforest, savanna and mangrove swamps. The indigenous people are friendly and welcoming and number around 2000 in small hamlets on the island. Access to the island is via speed boat or government ferry we which provides weekly services. All basic needs like fuel, store food and beverages can be purchased in town and ferried by the local boats each week. 

The PNG government wants to develop the province into a tourism hub and offers great tax saving incentives for tourism operators. There is potential of the proposed resort to be a successful investment. There's more to offer with the nearby islands of Ferguson, Dobu and Normanby which have hotsprings,  sprouting geysers, extinct volcanoes, limestone caves, dive and surf sites, treks and historical sites not to mention the rich customs and traditions of friendly islanders.

However, this is based on our budgets. The partner may propose a different plan. Construction has not started and pending a partner to provide dive services and additional financial capital.
