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

Firstly I must say our visit was in October last year. This is the place you read about, see pictures of and never think that it will be you lying on the deck chair at the end of the jetty, surrounded by crystal clear water and white sands! My husband, 3 year old and myself went for a 3 day... More

This was a very special trip for us. I proposed to my partner here on a tiny deserted island, nestled amongst a wide turquoise lagoon teeming with fish, and a warm tropical sunset backdrop. The surrounding environment is absolute paradise, and the staff went way beyond expectations to ensure it was a truly unique and unforgettable few days. Exceptional locally... More

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we were treated like royalty on a private vacation. Attention to detail was excellent, but so was the the amount of space we were given to do our own thing. Quiet and serene. We had a choice of indoor or outdoor shower! We showered outdoors everyday! A simple but high... More
