the only bad thing about this place was that we only got to spend one night here. the view from our balcony was literally like you'd walked out the door into a postcard. it was amazing. the staff are all so lovely and friendly. it goes without saying for the solomons, but remember some industrial strength mozzie repellent! haha. surprisingly...

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff at the office in Gizo were very friendly and helped get my booking and transfer sorted asap. I was greeted with a smile and drink. The surroundings are just stunning and can't be beaten. The snorkelling is excellent and there is a host of boat and diving trips that can... More

We spent a wonderful week at the most beautiful location in the Pacific. The staff and the hosts, John and Karen made us feel like we were the guests of honour. The meals were fantastic and even more so if you're a lover of fresh seafoods. The snorkelling was the best we have experienced. A short flight from Honiara and... More

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
