We were staying nearby & decided to take a quick boat ride over to Fatboys resort for some lunch. There was actually nobody staying at the resort at the time & most of the staff were on holiday (although they stayed at the resort). I was amazed at how at a moments notice the staff opened their kitchen & bar... More

I stayed at Fat Boys for 2 nights in 2010 and this time for a week and I still didn't want to leave. It is everything you could wish for a "get away from it all" holiday to be. Right from the time the dingy picks you up from the airport (yes transfers are in a small boat) to the... More

I agree with the glowing reviews. There could be things to nit-pick but you soon forget them in the enchantment of the place, the views, the surrounding water, the lovely staff. You are comfortable but being a little rustic goes with the being near the end of the world. So they run out of white wine for a day or... More

Incredible location. You can't believe this place until you see it. All the rooms overlook the amazingly beautiful water onto Kennedy island (amongst others) and then a big dormant volcano. Breathtaking views all day long. Great snorkelling off the restaurant. Wonderful little beaches outside the accommodation that were perfect for our kids. Short boat trips to many beautiful islands for... More

Myself and two other mates were looking for a fantastic trip to relax, snorkel & do some fishing over the Xmas break. Not only did Fatboys tick all of the boxes, it had the most fantastic staff out of any resort I've ever stayed at. With a really friendly couple from Stradbroke Island & really down to earth locals, we... More

We were a couple looking to get away from it all, relax, perhaps make some new friends, and enjoy some fantastic diving. Our vacation was all that and more. Fatboys is a small group of waterfront bungalows all with beautiful views of Kolombungara and Kennedy Islands. The accommodations are rustic but very clean and given beautiful floral touches by the... More

Someone told us the description for Fatboys is "Heaven on a Reef" and after spending nearly two weeks there we can tell you for us this is the absolute truth. We had the most amazing holiday - island hopping, snorkelling, swimming, fishing, kayaking and watching all sorts of magnificent marine life and just totally relaxing. The staff were fantastic they... More

Fatboys is a great spot for the city weary overstressed folk such as us. We spent a wonderful 10 days at Fatboys and the diving was fantastic. We had room 4 overlooking the water and spectacular views. The rooms have mosquito nets and every night mosquito coils are lit but I must say we didn't have any mosquitoes during our... More

Fatboys is in the most incredible location and has views that will blow your mind. The only thing that lets it down is that overall it's a bit tired, some things (eg. hot water shower) are not operational, and the food/drink service is SLOW. Place your order, then go for a swim or a kayak, you'll be back in time... More

I'm just back from an amazing week at Fatboys where the manager and his team helped organise the most amazing wedding I could have ever asked for!
