We spent 5 nights on the island for our honeymoon and thought it was amazing. We would highly recommend to all - families, small groups, older couples etc. We loved the beautiful remote setting, the well manicured grounds, the amazing blue colour of the water, the friendly staff and delicious meals. It was exactly what we were after. No distractions,... More

We had a magic 5 day stay in a piece of tropical paradise. The staff are fantastic. The accomodation is brilliant. The chef provides a great variety of dishes. The snorkelling was very good. We loved the experience of being able to stop and recharge with so little to distract you. No TV, only 5 guests on the island and... More

My family and I visited Tavanipupu for a weekend getaway and it was the best dose of R&R for my husband and great quality family time for all of us. Our children ages 19 and 12 couldn't stay away from swimming around the jetty area, snorkeling, kayaking and cycling around the island. The water is cool and crystal clear, the... More

Once me and my partner arrived at the island we were excited to see the pristine water, coral reef and the absolutely rejuvenating atmosphere of the island. For us it was a perfect get away to clear our minds from the busyness of work and day to day life. We stayed five nights, which i think was enough to enjoy... More

We spent a holiday of a life time here in August. From the moment we left Honiara's friendly domestic airport our adventure began. We stepped aboard a delightful Britt Norman islander plane with eight seats. It was an amazing way to travel and the views from the plane were incredible with a view of the island making us very excited.... More

Had a really lovely time at Tavanipupu Island Resort – it’s a beautiful place with pristine waters, plenty of fish and coral, lovely staff, incredible food, and a good selection of wines that I’ve definitely been feeling the lack of in Marau! But I do have some mixed feeling about the place for the following reasons and feel that considerable... More

Absolutely wonderful. I think it must be the last of the tropical frontiers. I came here on my own for the weekend when I was based in Honiara. It was perfect. Just perfect. The serenity is sublime, the food is beautiful and having a glass of wine on the jetty with Pamela, the owner, to chat about life left me... More

When we knew we were coming to Honiara from the UK with work, we didn't expect it to be all South Pacific paradise. We knew that we'd have to balance some of the hardships of city life here, with a little bit of unfettered luxury. We therefore, off the back of little more than an entry in the Lonely Planet,...

Terrific getaway from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The snorkeling on the island is unparalleled and its hard to think anywhere exists that beats it. I would consider myself one of the worst fisherman ever to hold a rod but was still able to catch a magnificent Trevally. My only complaint which is no fault of the staff... More

You could describe Tavanipupu as the ultimate barefoot luxury honeymoon destination, but that would be to do it an injustice! It is much more than that and a truly incredible place with a relaxed atmosphere where anyone would feel welcome. We headed off to Tavi for our honeymoon in November 2013, we spent 8 nights here and had a truly... More
