Lonely Planet review
This boutique hotel was still being built when we visited but will be opened soon. Five minutes from town, and having its own wharf and game-fishing boats, Driftwood aims to cater to anglers keen to hook into some of the bay's marlin and sailfish. There will be three beach and five garden bungalows as well as an upmarket Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant jutting over the water.
Our independent authors have visited Driftwood and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Alotau.
